Books Reviewed

 While I have the covers of all books reviewed during 2021 coming up under the Picture Book, Middle Grade and Young Adult tabs, some people prefer a bit more organization. (Why? I don't know, either. I mean, how could dry titles be more exciting than beautiful, bright and bold covers?) 

But for all those exact folks, you can find all books listed by title here. I've grouped them into three categories (picture book, middle grade, and young adult), marked by genre for middle grade and young adults, and placed a star next to those reads, which I especially enjoyed. Star reads have the chance of hitting my favorite list at the end of the year.
