Blogging from A to Z Challenge Books

Welcome to the Blogging A to Z Challenge!

It’s April Already!

I am excited to begin theΒ  A to Z blogging challenge

A to Z challenge button

The rules of the challenge are to blog every day (with most Sundays off)

with each letter of the alphabet.

My challenge here at Unconventional Librarian will be to

present a YA or children’s book for each letter of the alphabet!


Let’s begin!

Today’s letter is A, so I have chosen

Absolutely Normal Chaos by Sharon Creech

Unconventional Librarian holds Absolutely Normal Chaos

I love Sharon Creech’s books because the characters are crazy silly. says: “A prequel to the 1995 Newbery Medal winner Walk Two Moons, Absolutely Normal Chaos proves that Sharon Creech is not the kind of author you meet once and forget — she writes with a memorable voice that speaks directly to the thoughts and feelings of her readers. Absolutely Normal Chaos chronicles the daily life of 13-year-old Mary Lou Finney during her most chaotic and romantic summer ever. “

Can you just imagine a whole class of 13 yr olds groaning “oh no, a journal!?!”

I can.

I’ve read Walk Two Moons and I love that one too!

The next letter in the alphabet?


wonder what book will be next..?

stay tuned!

Yay! I love it. The unique photos are perfect, too.

Great post, Pam! πŸ™‚

(Is tomorrow going to be THE BIRDS?) haha. πŸ˜‰

very awesome πŸ™‚ i should stop by here every day and maybe i’ll find something i can get for my son πŸ˜› or myself!!

What a lovely idea. I don’t suppose you are stuck for P but you could check out my books if you are.
Looking forward to more of your recommendations πŸ™‚ Happy A to Z’ing

Some of my favorite people are librarians. And to meet an unconventional one, well, all the better. Our junior high librarian recommended The Wednesday Wars by Gary D. Schmidt during a book fair. We bought it, brought it home, thought for certain she’d missed the mark.

Until we opened the cover and started reading.

My son and I love that book.

Good on you for helping folks like us find worlds they otherwise wouldn’t.

Thank you all for your good thoughts. I love receiving book suggestions as well. I hope I don’t disappoint!
