I love fantasy and warm books! This was a really fun collection of books that I started around Thanksgiving break.
–The Firefly Letters is a novel-in-verse that is also biography and historical fiction.Very nice blending of genres! Poetry really lets you get inside a person’s mind. I love the multiple points of view.
–The Prince and the Dressmaker was such a nice graphic novel! This is quickly becoming one of my favorite genres. What a progressive and sweet story. you will find yoruself supporting both Frances and Sebastian. Spoiler Alert: The king is the most progressive of them all!
–Zebra Forest is like a middle grade version of Eileen, sort of. Somehow it is fun to read short novels about a few characters in captivity, with mysterious and sinister motivations. It takes a masterful writer to pull off suspense!
–The Vanderbeekers and the Hidden Garden is the sequel to The Vanderbeekers of 141st Street. I love Karina Yan Glaser! She is an inspiration and her book is just so sweet, realistic, and it makes me wish I was raising a family in New York City, a little bit.

–Forest Born by my favorite, Shannon Hale. I think I will save this one for summer or my next break! ❤
