IMWAYR: Falling Behind in the Snow

Winter is here, the snow has come to town, and I’m falling behind in my reading. You would think I had more time to read over the weekend, being stuck inside and all, but the weather headache took over and we had to shovel, too. Hopefully this week will be better.

NetGalley: I opened The Mysterious Disappearance of Aidan S.(as told to his brother) by David Levithan. I think students are going to love this one! 

Physical Books: In book mail this week, I received a gift from Erin Soderberg Downing, my Minnesota nerdy book friend and author, and I’m already half way through When Life Gives You Lemons, Make Peach Pie (due April 6, 2021 from Pixel + Ink). The Peaches family is headed out for the summer in a used food truck. Mom left a legacy with her invention (they’re millionaires!), and Dad wants to live out Mom’s dreams, traveling the country and selling pies. He doesn’t think about the one thing that maybe he should have before making the plans…no one in the family knows how to bake. This book is funny, heartwarming, and thoughtful. I don’t know WHAT I would do if I had a million dollars…(probably buy more books!) I haven’t been in the car — too much snow — so I’ll continue Cicely Tyson’s Just As I Am this week, maybe.

It’s MONDAY! What are YOU reading?


IMWAYR is a weekly blog hop with kid lit co-hosts Jennifer from Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee and Ricki from Unleashing Readers. The original IMWAYR, with an adult literature focus, was started by Sheila at Book Journeys and is now hosted by Kathryn at The Book Date. It’s a great way to share what you’re reading and get recommendations from others. We encourage you to write your own post sharing what you’re reading, link up, leave a comment, and support other IMWAYR bloggers by visiting and commenting on at least three of the other linked blogs each week.

  1. I’ve seen a little chatter lately about Make Peach Pie. It does sound like a good one. Hopefully, you can kick-start your reading this week with all this snow we are about to get!

  2. Aw, When Life Gives You Lemons sounds very sweet. Thanks for sharing that one! Keep warm & stay in. Our weather is getting better, but I know the south & east are not. Best wishes these next days!

  3. What a great set of books! The first book in The Great Peach Experiment sounds particularly fun—I’ll try to get a copy once it comes out. I love the new blog design as well—it’s very pretty! Thanks for the great post!

  4. I’m looking forward to When Life Gives You Lemons, Make Peach Pie and I have an e-ARC of it to read very soon. And I’ll have to check out The Mysterious Disappearance of Aidan S once it is released. Thanks for the heads-up. I’m making my #imwayr rounds a little later than usual, so I hope you’re having a fantastic reading week, Jennifer.
