Guts / Ghosts / Pashmina | Thoughts

I've recently read a ton of graphic novels and memoirs - some I loved and others not so much but were still a thrill to read. Guts by Raina Telgemeier I am always on the lookout for Raina Telgemeier's comics, so when I found Guts available at my library's Overdrive catalog last year, I had to request it right away. Her comics are always delightful, designed for the middle-grade audience, and written very well. Guts is a continuation of her Smile nonfiction graphic memoir series (see Smile and Sisters ) and recounts a period in her childhood when she experienced IBS for the first time.

mailboxmonday This meme is hosted by Marcia @ The Printed Page. It is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week (checked out library books don’t count, eBooks & audio books do).

Balancing Acts by Zoe Fishman


Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Eva @ A Striped Armchair and Marg @ Reading Adventures that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library.

I had a slow library week. I guess I need to get through my last loot before I head for the next pile. My hold for Push just came through.
  1. Push by Sapphire: Last time I picked this book, I was neck-deep in work with no time to read any book. I'm glad that's not the case now. I can't wait to read this.
What do you think of any of these books?

I haven't read Balancing Acts, but it's gotten fantastic reviews. I really enjoyed Push, but it's gritty and difficult to read at times. Have a great week in books!

I bought Balancing Acts a few weeks ago. I need to read it :) Have a good week!
PUSH has been on my list for a while, but it's ALWAYS checked out of my school's library. That's a good sign though.
