R is for Recommendations #AtoZChallenge

I love giving recommendations (book or otherwise), and I have been asked more than once for suggestions of what to read during this time. So, this is the post with all the recs! I was going to attempt to separate them into categories, but I just labeled them instead. I put pictures if I had them handily available because it would have taken forever to find pictures for all of them. Also, these are only the books I’ve read in the past five years. I mean, this list could go on, but I had to stop myself somewhere.

If you’re interested in any of them, please support a book and mortar bookstore that serves your neighborhood. Most are still taking orders and doing delivery. Bookstore Link can point you in the right direction if you don’t already have a bookstore in mind.

And this will be mostly children’s lit because you know how I roll. So here we go.

Recommendation Wednesday: Princeless

About 3/4 of the way through Princeless by Jeremy Whitley (illustrated by M. Goodwin), I could not stop smiling. Then, when I finished the book, I closed it with a satisfying “YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS.”

(Or YAAAAAAAAAAAAS as the youngers say.)

There is so much to dig about this book. Let’s start here:

Princeless by Jeremy Whitley
