I’m in the second week of my challenge and I’ve already failed myself! Okay, failed maybe isn’t the right word….I didn’t make my goal though.
This week I read a picture book called Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site by Sherri Duskey Rinker. This is a very cute book in the same typical style of Goodnight Moon. The book describes what all the machines have done that day and shows how they go to sleep for rest. The illustrations – especially the big machines all curled up with their blanket and stuffed animals – were gorgeous too!
This is a great book for kids (and adults) who like the big machines and construction equipment.
This week my first novel was actually a graphic novel. Thanks to various KidLit Bloggers who are promoting graphic novel month, I decided that it was the week to take Coraline, by Neil Gaiman, off of my husband’s shelves.
Coraline is a young girl who discovers an “Other” world through a portal in her new house. She thinks the Other Mother, and the Other world, are pretty good because she gets what she wants. However, things go South for Miss Coraline. She must escape the Other Mother’s clutches, her creepy button eyes, and the hand with long fingernails that is chasing her.
This is a good book for older readers. The graphic novel version, illustrated by P. Craig Russell, is especially creepy. I thought I would start October off with a creepy book and this one fit the bill!
My second novel this week is in process. Life got away from me, and I really believe I scheduled too much reading…at least for this past week. So, look for the Book That Took Two Weeks (aka my mystery read….) in next week’s #imwayr post!
What did you read this week? Any ideas for my next week reading from my challenge list? Let’s talk below…
