A few weeks ago, I started reading The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon. I was captivated by it; but was busy preparing for an interview. Then, what I will refer to as The Solar Eclipse of 17 frenzy started. It will live in infamy with librarians throughout the country. After answering calls and in person questions about eclipse glasses all day, the last thing I wanted to do when I got home was read a book with sun in the title. Actually, the last thing I wanted to do at all was read.
Now that the eclipse is over, the world hasn’t ended and my book holding arm wasn’t injured passing out eclipse glasses at our program, I can start reading again.
All this sun and moon conversation reminded me I’ve yet to read the 2017 Newbery Award winner, The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill. Once I finish The Sun is Also a Star, I’ll start The Girl Who Drank the Moon.
