  1. Some wonderful books on your list! I love these Penny stories by Kevin Henkes. I have only read the first one so far but keep seeing that others have been published! Thanks for sharing.

  2. I just finished (and reviewed) Prairie Evers. I enjoyed it! I read it with Prairie Thief, which just happened to be in my pile of books at the same time. I figured that the titles were a match, so I thought I might see where the two books led me!

    You've got some other great books here, too. I loved Creepy Carrots and I will have to check for Penny at the library. I enjoy Kevin Henkes books so much. :)

  3. I loved Creepy Carrots! I recommended it for our library!

  4. so many interesting new reads for me on your list. I have to complete reading the Mysterious Benedict Society soon. has been half finished for too long now.. Thank you. adding them to my tbr lists

  5. Despite all she's written, every time I see Ann M. Martin, I think Babysitter's Club :) And Kevin Henkes. Another longtime favorite. I just received an ARC of a new Lulu book for the spring. I haven't read the others, but the description intrigued me and I'm looking forward to diving in :)


  6. An Elephant and Piggie Book! Our posts are kin! :) I don't think I have this title though. The Mysterious Benedict Society series remains a huge favorite here in our household. I have yet to purchase the prequel though. I've been seeing a lot of the Creepy Carrots book and I am definitely intrigued. Will look into it. :)
