Ghosts - Raina Telgemeier,Raina Telgemeier

I read this book after reading an article on the lack of diversity of main characters in children's books. While the article focused mostly on younger kids books, I feel like this one falls in the spectrum.


Touching on Day of the Dead, ofrendas, cystic fibrosis, moving to a new city, and a tiny bit of white washing the mother went through as a kid. 


I really enjoyed this book. It's a really quick read, and surprisingly emotional - Much deeper than I was expecting.


Definitely recommend this book for the younger audience. (Middle grade)

Titan's Curse
The Titan's Curse - Rick Riordan

This was was just ok for me. It might have been that I just wasn't feelin' it for a Percy Jackson adventure right now. I didn't really feel connected to the story. I'm not saying that nothing happened or that the writing style drastically changed. A lot, actually, happened. And I still enjoy Percy as a character.


I think I just wasn't dedicated to this one from the start. My attention faded in and out. I will keep going with the series, but I liked the Sea Monsters better. We'll .... sea....
