Bout of Books 12: Day 4

Bout of Books

I finished reading The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate (who wrote the Animorphs series) and illustrated by Patricia Castelao. This is a middle grade book based/inspired by the true story of a gorilla of the same name. There was a documentary done on Ivan in 1992. You can watch a clip of it here. He was eventually moved to Zoo Atlanta, and passed away in 2012.
Later that night I started reading The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes. I didn't read much of it, but I'm really liking it so far.

 Describe your book in pictures. I haven't done any of the challenges so far, but this one seemed pretty interesting. This challenge is being hosted by The Book Monsters.

I chose the book that I'm currently reading. The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes.


  1. Really great progress so far. I don't know why but I can't make myself read The One and Only Ivan. I do like that it's based on a real story. Good luck with The Naturals (:

    1. Thanks. I didn't really have any interest in reading it until I heard it was based off of something that actually happened. For a middle grade book it was really good.

  2. wow, well done! good to meet another Emma book blogger!
