Rumors of Savages has been sitting on my Kindle for a long while and when I figured out that it would work for a reading challenge of mine, I decided what the heck, I'll give it a whirl.  I wasn't disappointed at all.  The African setting was very well done, and the supernatural element to it was woven in without feeling like a paranormal book at all.  It started out rather slow but picked up at about the halfway mark.

 

Will I read more from this Author?⇜  Doesn't look like she's written anything else.

Harriet the Spy
Harriet the Spy - Louise Fitzhugh

Harriet the Spy is about a girl who writes down everything she notices or feels about everyone, including those she calls her friends. This is a fantastic book that many students can relate to - whether they have felt isolated, bullied, or have been a bully. Students can learn from Harriet the Spy how be honest but gracious and nice.

 

With this novel, I would read it aloud as well as assign chapters to read for students in any grade between third or fifth grade. We would throughout the readings have class discussions on character, setting, plot and analysis, as well as have short quizzes when assigned chapters to read to test reading. In a fifth grade class, I would at the end of the reading have my students write an essay discussing when it is okay to write about people and why.

Friday Reads!
Lights, Love & Lip Gloss (Hollywood High Book 4) - Amir Abrams,Ni-Ni Simone
Heels, Heartache & Headlines (Hollywood High) - Amir Abrams,Ni-Ni Simone
Rumors - A.C. Arthur
Revealed (The Rumors Series, Book 2) - A.C. Arthur

I will be finishing up the Hollywood High series and starting on a duology (haven't heard of a third book thus far) by A. C. Arthur that I've put off for way too long. I'm having such a good time reading and catching up with the girls in the Hollywood High series. These books are easy reads that really are a fun escape.

 

You'll realize that I'm not sticking to my March reading list. Some books really do take me forever to read and days were passing by without me picking up my kindle. I decided to re-adjust my tbr and read some backlogged books that would surely get me going again. I will eventually get to the books on my March TBR, but I will feel better with books read, under my belt, than none at all or only a couple at months end. I wish I could read multiple books at a time, but I can't.

 

I don't have plans for the weekend so, these four books seem doable.

 

Happy weekend reading everyone!

Fascinating!
Stevie Nicks: Visions, Dreams & Rumors - Zoë Howe

This is a re-release of a book from a few years ago. I received it from NetGalley in exchange for a fair review.
I have always been enthralled, "bewitched", and fascinated by Stevie Nicks. From the first time I listened to Fleetwood Mac in the mid-seventies until today. That voice. That music. And, later, when I would see concert clips of them on The Midnight Special and other shows, the pure enchantment of watching Stevie perform. And, later, to actually seeing them perform in concert in person. It would just fill me with a sense of wonder.
And the rumors. Of the drug use. Of the drama. Of the in-fighting. What to believe?
Well, it's pretty much all laid bare in this book. I found that I just could not put it down. And it left me, at age 57, still feeling the same way about Stevie Nicks as I did when I was a teenager. Fascinating!
