Lair of Dream Book Review

dreams

I finished Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray last week and let me tell you that is hefty book. It’s a darker story taking place in New York in the 1920’s and follows a special group of people called Diviners who have special powers to fight an evil taking over the city known as the sleeping sickness. It’s a little dark and there is a lot going on, but it was good. There are a number of characters to remember and I struggled to remember what happened to them in the first novel, but Libba Bray is a very good author and I was easily caught up in the book and what was happening to the city and the characters.

I am a big fan of the Gemma Doyle Trilogy and my favorite part was Evie and Sam seeing Gemma, even if it was just in passing.

Overall it was good and a book I would recommend. I can’t wait for the next one to be released.

Class Visit

I have been given charge of a class visit for 8th graders later this April.

This is quiet scary.

Kids I can do. Reading about Leonardo or Hilda or Pigeon or Mr. McGreely and the bunnies I can do. 8th graders are a whole ‘nother ball park. I’m trying to make a plan, but when I try and think of how to make this entertaining I am at a loss. Talking about the library and what we have should be okay (should I not panic and forget everything), but making it entertaining is key because if they are into what I’m talking about the visit will be for nothing. That is an important part I need to work on.

This is going to be interesting to try and work out.
