Bookish Brains Issue 18

Letter from the editor:

I finished my second semester of grad school! The beginning of May marked the end of the spring semester for me, and I gladly turned in my final projects in exchange for a blissful month of break. My summer classes will begin in June, and I am unfortunately dreading them.

May has carried a lot of emotional turmoil and depression for me, as I have grappled with various upsetting events that have transpired in the world. Always there for company, books have embraced me.

This newsletter features reviews of books I read this month such as The Annual Migration of Clouds by Premee Mohamed, The Office of Historical Corrections by Danielle Evans, The Girl Who Fell Beneath the Sea by Axie Oh, Pashmina by Nidhi Chanani, Moonwalking by Zetta Elliott and Lyn Miller-Lachmann, and more! Plus, a list of new upcoming June book releases. Check it out!

Cheers!

Bookish Brains Issue 17

Letter from the editor:

Greetings, dear readers! April was my first full month in the youth services department at the library I work at, so I have been reading a lot of children’s literature! I also got to lead two storytime sessions for preschoolers, which was a lot of fun. My first theme was Flowers, and my second theme was Gardening. Let me know if you’d be interested in me sharing my storytime plans with you!

April is also National Poetry Month, so this month I read a couple books written in verse. Altogether, I read 22 books this month, 14 of which were picture books. I’ve been busy!

This edition contains eight book reviews and a list of awesome upcoming book releases to look forward to next month.

Hoping you are having a lovely spring so far and wishing you a gorgeous May.

Cheers!
-B.C.
