31 Days of NEW Kids Picture Books: 2017 edition

2016 NEW Kids Picture Books
2015 NEW Kids Picture Books
2014 NEW Kids Picture Books

Wow, how can it be almost October already?! Here in Michigan we had a week of 90+ degree temps, just in time for the first day of fall... :-P  October sure snuck up on me, but it's still time once again for #write31days.

I've had fun each October writing short book reviews each day.  My local library has a section just for new books that have arrived in the last 6 months, typically published within the last year. I'll be following the same format as previous years, but the content will be completely new!

Let me know if you'll be reading along with me! Be sure to subscribe by email or in a blog reader (like Feedly or Bloglovin or RSS), and like my Facebook page so you don't miss out on any posts!

Quick Lit: Summer 2017

Ahhh summer. Days of sleeping in, playing outside, and lots of reading. I actually didn't finish a crazy amount of books this year, but with lots of Kindle-usage during baby feedings, I did stay on track with my goals. I read 10 books from June through August, putting me at 27 of 36.
