Book tastes

My library on here is for my K-8 students who don't have access to a library rich with a variety of literature in their interests. Quality children's literature is a passion of mine. I personally love dystopian and historical novels. I attended a "What's New is YA Literature" workshop recently and my most recent purchase (which I learned about from this workshop) is "Fatal Throne: The Wives of Henry VII Tell All". Some series/books I have recently read and loved are; The Ruby Red Trilogy, The Nightingale, The Lunar Chronicles, the Red Queen Series, and The Wrath and the Dawn Duo.

Don't get this!

I'm pretty open-minded and am willing to try anything!

WeeTurtle: A "what should we borrow?" library comparison suggests [Fish in a Tree] by Lynda Hunt. I've yet to read it myself but I've heard good things from kids and adults. (Tue, 27 Nov 2018 05:16:54 -0500)

redrabbit: I hope that I did not go too obvious... I put the call out to my many teacher/parent friends and had tons of feedback. I checked everything against your list, I don't believe you have any of these books/series. (Tue, 04 Dec 2018 16:54:06 -0500)

redrabbit: Note for LibraryThing: I added the entire Magnus box set because it was hard to spend $50 with just 5 lines to use, and I didn't want to waste any of her money. This comes out to just cents under $50, I hope that's okay! (Tue, 04 Dec 2018 16:54:53 -0500)

lorannen: The paperback box set of the Magnus Chase books isn't available yet, and the hardcovers put us over budget. So, I swapped that out for individual copies of all three of those books. Unfortunately, I had to remove Leviathan (9781416971740) due to availability.

Done. (Thu, 13 Dec 2018 23:53:03 -0500)
