I can only seem to blog about books I have issues with. Books I like, books I don’t care about, and books I just plain dislike, I can’t really talk about. I also seem to mainly have issues with retellings of familiar stories. Spoilers for Jane Austen’s Persuasion and For Darkness Shows the Stars
I really wanted to love this book, and I think I might have if I had read it when I was younger, or even if my children’s lit professor hadn’t pointed out a problematic aspect of the book before I read it. But she did, and that was all I could see as I read it.
I hope to keep this blog as a way to keep up with all the children and young adult books I’m reading as I look for and hopefully find a librarian position. First up: The Tale of Despereaux, by Kate DiCamillo.
