Nov. 30, 2009 CodeTalker by Joseph Bruchac 5/5

I just reviewed (Dec.3) Minuk: Ashes in the Pathway by Kirkpatrick Hill about the Yup'ik Eskimos in Alaska.

Also my November MG book of the month is about a group of Guatemalan Native people (the Quiche), Journey of Dreams.

All in all, I read some fabulous books this month and I don't intend on stopping. Remember to read books about Native Americans all year round :) I still want to read Sweetgrass Basket by Marlene Carvel, Rain Is Not My Indian Name by Cynthia Leitich Smith and anything by Joseph Bruchac!

24-Hour Read-A-Thon

Tonight at 11 PM CT I will start my read-a-thon and continue till 11 PM tomorrow. The real read-a-thon starts tomorrow (Sat.) and continues till Sunday. I will do another post once I start reading and share a list of my books that I'm reading. Wish me luck!


  1. I was SO impressed with your reviews AND your range of books, Miss A. Way to show respect for Native American authors and cultures!

  2. Aw thanks Zetta! It was so much fun to do and I'm so glad that I got the opportunity to read some great books =)

  3. I just read Rain Is Not My Indian Name this weekend. I think it is maybe the first book ever where I pinged on the main character as being "like me."


I love to hear from you!! Thank you for sharing :) And don't be Anon, I try to always reply back and I like to know who I'm replying to ;)
