This week for Monday Memories I’m talking about Blackfin Sky by Kat Ellis
At first I wasn’t sure what book I should talk about for this last Monday Memories. But then I realized Blackfin Sky was the just right choice because I almost never read (or even heard of) this book.
I’m a member of the YALSA’s 2015 Popular Paperbacks for Young Adults committee. Because of that I have been getting a not-insignificant number of books in the mail. Some are books that are not eligible or books I don’t need to read for my sub-lists. Some are books I’ve already read.
Then some of them are gems like this one.
It’s easy as a blogger (and librarian) to think you must be finding all of the books worth seeing. But aside from being physically impossible, that also misses the point sometimes. As a blogger and librarian reading can often feel like work. Because it is work. I read for professional development and collection development and to do my job better. I read so that I’ll have things to talk about on this blog.
But I also read because I love it.
There was something magical about this strange supernatural mystery landing in my hands and there is something magical about finding those just-right books.
Even if I won’t be sharing more memories here on Mondays, I hope everyone makes time for a little whimsy in their reading lives.
