ending June with some good books…

“The Ozarkers” by Blevins – good book to prepare me for my trip to Mizzou – except I ended up not going:(

“The Hate U Give” by Angie Thomas – good – not a book I’d put in the middle school library, but a good high school YA

“On the Come Up” by Angie Thomas – good – a high school YA – i wasn’t thrilled with the first 100 pages or so, but it picked up and was great later

“Concrete Rose” by Angie Thomas – the most explicit of the three – but I probably liked this one the most – it was a prequel for THUG

“Shoutin’ in the Fire” by Dante Stewart – comes out this fall – is an excellent, excellent book – recommended it when I was in SC book club

“Becoming Elisabeth Elliot” by Vaughn – good book – at the local library – enjoyed reading it

“Hail Mary” by D’Arlangelo and Cretaz – professional football for women – the history of it – lots I didn’t know

“Mister Impossible” by Stiefvater – recommended to me – meh…

“The Baseball 100” by Posnanski – really great book – 843 pages long – which I read in four days b/c I love baseball:)
