Books I’m Craving

I must add 20 books to my wishlist every week. ¬†Here are just a few of the recent additions that I am dying to read! ¬†(Some aren’t even out yet….)

Bobby Flay’s Burgers, Fries, and Shakes– OK, so it’s not exactly kidlit. But I love Bobby Flay! One of his Burger Palace restaurants opened near me recently and it is delicious. I flipped through this cookbook at Sam’s Club and it was awesome! The milkshakes looked absolutely delicious.

When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead- After reading Betsy Bird’s review of this title, I was dying to read it. That hasn’t changed. Someone find me an ARC!

The Secret Holocaust Diaries: The Untold Story of Nonna Bannister by Nonna Bannister- I am always on the lookout for more Holocaust stories to build up my background in the subject. Nonna Bannister’s biographical account of her life during the Holocaust sounds very powerful. And the fact that she hid it from her family for so many decades fascinates me. I am looking forward to reading this one soon.

A Map Of The Known World by Lisa Ann Sandell- My fiancee is a cartographer, so a YA novel that has geography and geocaching as a theme sounds perfect!

How I Found the Perfect Dress by Maryrose Wood- I read and loved the first book in this series and can’t wait to continue the series!

If I Stay by Gayle Forman- I picked this up in Sam’s Club today and had a hard time putting it down. Books about the afterlife, or suspended between life and death, always catch my eye. This one has been getting great reviews!

The Season by Sarah Maclean- I have some huge fans of THE LUXE series in my classroom and they have been begging for more books about fancy dresses, scandal, and romance. The Season sounds perfect!

The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate by Jacqueline Kelly- A book about a budding young naturalist that’s been garnering rave reviews in every corner? Sign me up!

That’s just a taste of some of the books I am craving. What are you wishing and hoping for?
