  1. I've heard so many good things about The Hate U Give, it wasn't on my radar but now I'm thinking of picking it up. Strange the dreamer is another one, it jsut seems so different and unique- I'm really curious.

    1. Both books are amazing, though I should caution you about Strange the Dreamer. It has a big cliff-hanger at the ending.

  2. Isn't LaRose wonderful. I was thrilled when an ARC of Erdrich's new book turned up at work in Friday 😊

  5. I must get to Strange the Dreamer soon. I've heard so many good things and having read a previous novel from the author, I'm sure the writing is gorgeous.

  6. LaRose made my list of mid-year favorites as well. And The Hate U Give will definitely be on my top ten list at the end of the year, I'm sure. I really liked both of those books. I would really like to get to Homegoing this year. Thank you for sharing, Anne!

  7. I haven't actually read any of these yet (oops!), but I own copies of both The Hate U Give and Strange the Dreamer. Will need to get working on those soon...
