The Elegance of the Hedgehog


by Muriel Barbery

This is the story of Renee, a concierge with a passion for the arts, and Paloma, a wealthy 13 year old living in the building.  It is described as moving and hilarious--which sounds like a winner to me!

The bonus is that a friend gifted this to me.  Hooray!

Goodnight Already by Jory John and Benji Davies

Goodnight Already 


by Jory John & Benji Davies
published by HarperCollins

Jory John is hilarious to me, folks.  He is among my favorite personalities on Twitter and always makes me laugh.  All My Friends Are Dead is so clever and gets me all giggly...so, of course, I want to read anything he writes.

Bear just wants to rest, but his tenacious friend (and neighbor) Duck wants to hang out with Bear.

Wolfie the Bunny by Ame Dyckman

Wolfie the Bunny


by Ame Dyckman
published by Little Brown Books for Young Readers

Y'all!  Ame Dyckman is my homegirl.  I seriously love her...and all her books!  She is fun and witty and quirky...well, she is my kind of wonderful.  This is one that I know will be added to the permanent library even before reading it!

The Bunny family has adopted Wolfie.  Big sister, Dot, sees a problem looming in their future...but in a twist of fate, Wolfie is the Bunny that needs saving.

A Smidgen of Sky a middle grade novel by Dianna Dorisi Winget

A Smidgen of Sky


by Dianna Dorisi Winget
published by HMH Books for Young Readers

So a friend was actually talking about this book's sequel and I looked it up.  I realized that I wanted to read both of these books asap!

Years after her father's death, Piper's mom is getting remarried--and Piper hatches a plan to ruin the wedding!  Reviews specifically talk about the "Southern voice" in this book, which I honestly love. Can't wait to start this one!


In Mary's Garden by Tina and Carson Kugler

This is the story of Mary Nohl and how her love of art led to her famous garden gallery in Wisconsin.






Sparkly Green Earrings by Melanie Shankle

Sparkly Green Earrings


by Melanie Shankle
published by Tyndale House Publishers

I just finished The Antelope in the Living Room and could not stop laughing. Could not, y'all.  I kinda want to read anything Melanie Shankle writes and I'm pretty sure if anything happen to her friend, Gulley that I'm next in line to be her BFF.  No one tell Jen Hatmaker...she's jealous for my attention.







The Night Gardener by Jonathan Auxier

The Night Gardener


by Jonathan Auxier
published by Harry N. Abrams

This book is on the Texas Bluebonnet List this year and it looks fantastic!  Just today, my daughter begged me to grab this one for her when I dropped by the library earlier.  It's a Victorian ghost story about a brother and sister who go to work at an English manor house.  Things aren't what they seem...
