Rose Recommends: June | Wordless children’s books

Hey ho! June's almost over so it's time to recommend ya'll something! This particular "Rose Recommends" is a little bit different than usual because I'm recommending many books! And none of them have words! I'm going with some of my favorite recent children's books this time, because I'm taking a children's lit course right now and… Continue reading Rose Recommends: June | Wordless children’s books

Tra la! It's May! The lusty month of May! That darling month when everyone goes blissfully astray! Tra la! It's here! That shocking time of year! When tons of wicked little thoughts merrily appear! It's May! It's May! The month of.... Sorry. I was just in a production of Camelot. If you've ever been in… Continue reading Rose Recommends: May | Castle Waiting

Rose Recommends: April | The Borrower

April is almost over, and I need to do my monthly recommendation! This month I'm going with The Borrower by Rebecca Makkai. It looks like this: and it's great. The story is about a children's librarian in Hannibal, Missouri (which coincidentally is right by where I live so I'm super familiar with it). This librarian develops a… Continue reading Rose Recommends: April | The Borrower

Rose Recommends: March | The Great Good Thing

For March, I'm going to recommend one of my favorite young reader books: The Great Good Thing by Roderick Townley. If I remember correctly, I got this book through one of those Scholastic book order catalogs  that my school would send home each month (which were the BEST, am I right??). Thankfully my parents had the means… Continue reading Rose Recommends: March | The Great Good Thing

Rose Recommends: February | The Infinite Wait

Hello! It's time for a recommendation. This month I'm going with a graphic memoir: The Infinite Wait and Other Stories by Julia Wertz. I like to feature books that aren't very well known for my monthly recommendations, and this definitely fits that description. It currently has 687 Goodreads ratings. I was actually required to read this book for a college… Continue reading Rose Recommends: February | The Infinite Wait

Rose Recommends: January | Winesburg, Ohio

I made it! Last day of January, and I am posting my recommendation for the month on time! The start of my 2016 has been nuts, and it's starting to finally settle down a bit. So at last, I can give you my January recommendation: This month I am actually recommending a classic: Winesburg, Ohio… Continue reading Rose Recommends: January | Winesburg, Ohio

Rose Recommends: December | Jennifer Egan

I can't believe I almost forgot my recommendation post for December! I've been blogging more than usual lately (thanks to NaBloPoMo), so this post got lost in the shuffle. My December recommendations are: A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan and "Black Box" by Jennifer Egan. A Visit from the Good Squad is… Continue reading Rose Recommends: December | Jennifer Egan

Rose Recommends: November | Fan Phenomena

| This month's recommendation is actually a collection of books, one of which I read over the summer. The series is called Fan Phenomena and is published by the University of Chicago Press. Each book in the series is about a different fandom and contains scholarly essays that examine the phenomenon surrounding that particular fandom. I discovered these… Continue reading Rose Recommends: November | Fan Phenomena

Rose Recommends: October | “Other People”

"This "Rose Recommends" is a short one, for a few very exciting reasons: Reason 1: I was recently hired on as a content intern for MuggleNet.com! I haven't been waving my Harry Potter flag very much on this blog, but suffice to say that this is probably one of the coolest things that has ever… Continue reading Rose Recommends: October | “Other People”

Rose Recommends: September | 2 recent reads

Hi. So I'm starting a new series of blog posts called "Rose Recommends," because I do not review every book that I read. I don't review every book for two main reasons: 1. time, and 2. sometimes I just don't have anything interesting to say about a book. Also, if it's not a very well-known… Continue reading Rose Recommends: September | 2 recent reads
