Not a review: I’m back!



Sorry for starting this blog and then not posting for nearly three months … I’ve been reading and reviewing, but I decided to hold off posting here until I finished the HUGE review journal I was putting together for my tween materials class. Now that I’ve finished that up, I will queue the 40 reviews I’ve written for that document so that they come out daily (still haven’t put the queue together, but this blog will start updating soon). 🙂

In the meantime, I’ll post some reviews that did not go into that assignment.


A few non-book-thoughts before I return to posting my book thoughts!


I wanted to jump in to say that if you would like to use tags for searchability, they are viewable on individual post pages. 🙂 It took me a minute to figure that out, so I am also writing that here so that I can remember.

I’m going to post reviews for books I read this week and last week. I hope to post more often than once-a-week, but for now, I’ll just post individual books separately (rather than a big ol’ review master post.)

I hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend!


Book blogging for the win!

Welcome to Ms. Esling’s bookshelf! This blog will be a place where I (Ms. Esling … how did you guess?!) post my thoughts, reviews, and tags for books for young readers. I’d love to have a searchable record of what I’ve read, and this will be that thing.

Warning! I will post spoilers in my reviews so that I can have a heads-up of major plot points in case I forget. Spoilers will be posted in white so that they can only be seen when highlighted. 

Thank you for visiting, and welcome!
