Bookish Item| #MGtakesonthursday : The Boy, the Wolf, and the Stars – Shivaun Plozza

Normally we do tags on Thursdays, but lately both of us have been having a harder time finding tags we want to do or think are fun. That’s when I stumbled upon this new bookish meme: #MGTakesOnThursday created by BookCraic. Middle grade books have become a bigger part of our TBR, so this looked like a lot of fun. Let’s take a look at what this is all about!

How to participate:

  • Post a picture of the front cover of a middle-grade book which you have read and would recommend to others with details of the author, illustrator and publisher.
  • Open the book to page 11 and share your favorite sentence.
  • Write three words to describe the book.
  • Either share why you would recommend this book, or link to your review.

Favorite Quote

“See, little Irin? That is what I mean: forgiveness is a tricky thing. It is a wonderful gift, to forgive or to be forgiven. But it must be earned and it cannot be forced. Very, very tricky.”

I read an e-arc of this, so turning to page 11 for a favorite quote is more difficult. So I took one of the quotes I wrote down while reading.

I really hope to do this post on the blog more often in 2021! Middle grade books are amazing and I was reminded of that last year when I started reading more. There are still quite a few sitting unread on my shelves, so I have a lot to read. Also, I’d love to hear from you about what middle grade books you recommend. I’m always open to new ones. Let me know in the comments!
