Tell Me Tuesday #40




Tell me Tuesday is a weekly feature that where you talk about what you are currently reading and what you have on deck!  Let's begin, shall we?



WHAT I'M READING NOW

I just found out we need to move by the end of February, so I am trying to power through my physical books so I don't have to pack as many.  I know, I know...I'm a terrible book nerd.  Anyhoo, I had a bunch of Newbery Award books I got free and since that is one of my reading challenges, I've been focusing on those since I can bang them out really quick.  This is the one I'm starting today.  Surprisingly, I never read it as a kid:
The Witch of Blackbird Pond

I am about half way through this audiobook.  It is semi-autobiographical and read by the author.  I'm not sure how I feel about it?  I like it, but a few things make me uncomfortable.  It is a little macabre for a middle grade book, although I can see it appealing to boys. 
Dead End in Norvelt

Kaylee (age 5) is on a Bad Kitty streak.  We've gone through 4 of them now.  I'm actually kind of surprised because she rarely comes back for seconds on a series.  I personally think these books are cute and hilarious.
Bad Kitty vs Uncle Murray: The Uproar at the Front Door


  
 WHAT'S NEXT
  
I just got this from the library.  It is the last book in the series, so while I'm not super invested in the series, I'm happy to read the last book: 
The Iron Warrior (The Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten, #3)

  1. I have seen The Witch of Blackbird Pond mentioned quite a few times on blogs over the last couple of years. I will have to look it up on Goodreads. I also have a problem with gruesome Middle Grade. The Bad Kitty books look hilarious! I am looking forward to Kaylee's review of Bad Kitty Goes to the Vet. You have to move? Yikes! I hate short notice moves. I am sending you good moving vibes. Thanks for TMTing! Especially with your time crunch. :)

  2. You've never read The Witch of Blackbird Pond?? Mega little-girl Elizabeth swoons were had when reading this. Actually I think I may have reread it this year (last year?) now that I think about it. It's definitely one of my favourites of the Newbury's I've read. Hopefully the move won't be too stressful! (Who am I kidding? Moves are ALWAYS stressful. But still. You get what I mean.)
