I’m going to do a bit of a different Quick Thoughts post today. This is a round up of books I got from the library somewhat recently. I don’t tend to “read” non-fiction as much as I flip through it and skim over it. That’s what this round-up is! Non-fiction books that I didn’t exactly read but still wanted to share my thoughts on.
Pride and Prejudice and Kitties: A Cat-Lover’s Romp Through Jane Austen’s Classic by Jane Austen, Pamela Jane and Deborah Guyol
Genre: Adult Non-Fiction, Humor
This was a fun book to flip through. I didn’t read too far into the book because I didn’t want to spoil P&P for myself (since I haven’t read it yet). The story was funny enough. I liked how the author included passages from the ‘real’ story at the end of the chapter so you could see what she changed.
Plus cat pictures!
Summer is all about binge reading so I decided to do a book list/display featuring the first books in a bunch of different series. Hopefully the teens at the library can find a new series to devour this summer!
“Wonder” by R.J. Palacio
Genre: Middle Grade Fiction, Contemporary Fiction
Summary from Goodreads:
I won’t describe what I look like. Whatever you’re thinking, it’s probably worse.
August (Auggie) Pullman was born with a facial deformity that prevented him from going to a mainstream school—until now. He’s about to start 5th grade at Beecher Prep, and if you’ve ever been the new kid then you know how hard that can be. The thing is Auggie’s just an ordinary kid, with an extraordinary face. But can he convince his new classmates that he’s just like them, despite appearances?
Once Upon a Time is Now by Stephen Carpenter (Kindle freebie)
