Books On Sale

Sharon Creech YA eBooks on Sale

Absolutely Normal Chaos (Amazon link) with a girl in the grass between two big houses. I received an alert that some YA novels by Sharon Creech, who won a Newberry Medal for Walk Two Moons, are on sale for $1.99 each. I don't know how I missed reading these, but I've not heard of Creech before. Yet some of these books look like novels I'd love. Have you read Creech? Do you recommend one or all of these titles? 

 

  • Absolutely Normal Chaos by Sharon Creech * $1.99 * A | BN | K | S | ARe | iBooks
     
  • Chasing Redbird by Sharon Creech * $1.99 * A | BN | K | S | ARe | iBooks

    I loved Chasing Redbird and Walk Two Moons. I remember my 5th grade teacher reading Walk Two Moons to us in home room. It had a huge impact on me since I also lost my mother at a young age. Still have a hardcover in my bookshelf.

    “Absolutely Normal Chaos” is my favorite of the five titles. I highly recommend Sharon Creech.

    Walk Two Moons was on my required reading list when I used to teach Children’s Literature to pre-service teachers. I loved reading it, loved teaching it, and still have it on the shelf. Chasing Redbird is another favorite.

    I have a special place in my heart for Sharon Creech books! I even gifted my writing partner with Walk Two Moons last month. I’d read Absolutely Normal Chaos first, then Walk Two Moons. But, if you only time for one: Walk Two Moons. Love!

    Sharon Creech is amazing. Walk Two Moons was summer reading for me in middle school, and then I got several of her other books. My absolute favorite was Chasing Redbird (which I just bought from this sale to re-read) and I really liked Bloomability and Absolutely Normal Chaos as well.

    Fifth grade: my teacher would get very emotional when reading books that mattered.  She cried so much during the death in Bride to Terabithia that I had to read for her.  This book was one of those books we read during class – the crying, so-powerful-it-hurts kind of emotion.  The ones that I have read (Walk Two Moons, Absolutely Normal Chaos, Chasing Red Bird, Ruby Holler) were all great, but I distinctly recall Walk Two Moons and Chasing Red Bird the most.  These are definitely books that you want to share with your sons.  :)

    Oh my God, “Walk Two Moons”.  I just bought it a week or so ago at the discounted price, and it is just as good as I remembered it being.  The only other books of hers I’ve read are “Absolutely Normal Chaos” and “Chasing Redbird,” both of which are linked to WTM.  Truly, truly stunning YA literature.

    Good morning, ma’am! When I posted about this sale on Twitter, so many people told me your books were some of their favorites – or the favorites of their children. This sale is most excellent since I’m just being introduced to your work. (NO idea what rock I’ve been under so long but I presume it was very comfy there.)

    I really love Sharon Creech’s books and have read almost all of them, and more than once.  My favorites are Walk Two Moons and Bloomability.

    I also saw her speak once years back at the National Book Festival.  Very cool!

    You have to read her books! All of them are awesome! So says an English teacher. I read them all when I first became a teacher and was reading my way through YA literature I could share with my students. Walk Two Moons is my fav of hers.

    Of course like everyone I love Walk Two Moons and Ruby Holler (and, well, all of them), but The Wanderer is the one my boys and I return to again & again. I first read it to them while we were on a road trip, and as they’ve gotten older they both read it on their own, too, and none of us could resist chatting about it.

    I think I only read two of them. I started with Walk Two Moons then read Absolutely Normal Chaos, which is a spin-off of Walk Two Moons. I actually liked Absolutely Normal Chaos better, but I remember Walk Two Moons better. Walk Two Moons was kind of dark for my taste, but that’s me. Still thrilled to see Ms. Sharon Creech. Awesome that she posted in! Thinking of rereading now! Been a while (when I was a Young Adult). I am trying to decide if the new sort of dreamy cartoonish cover or If I miss my cover which was red with a girl pulling her hair out as she scribbled frantically. I think the new cover is prettier, but the old one fit more my image of Mary Lou. Anyway great reading, great memories…

    I loved all of Sharon Creech’s books, but Walk Two Moons probably had more impact on me than any other book I read at that age. I still remember that I skipped my class’s end of year pool party because I refused to put that book down…never regretted it…and I also remember crying my heart out like the world was ending at certain points. Would highly recommend for all pre-teen girls, and I’m pleasantly surprised to learn that boys love these books too, for some reason I never thought they would have cross gender appeal!

    Oh, I love Sharon Creech. One of the first reading groups I led as a student teach was for Love That Dog. It as so much fun to introduce my students to poetry.

    Oh thank goodness someone mentioned Love That Dog. I am not usually a fan of poetry, but it’s really more of a novel told through poetry, kind of like those texting novels that are trendy in Japan now.

    It’s written as an elementary boy’s class poetry notebook, which sounds boring but IS NOT. it’s a fast read (about an hour), and it’s so enthralling as you piece together his life from his poems, which are not emo boring but actually something my 3rd grade students would write. I actually laughed out loud several times (and cried a bit, too).

    The first poem is:

    I don’t want to
    because boys
    don’t write poetry.

    Girls do.

    If you really like it, try Hate That Cat, a sequel written a while later. The two books are also huge kid favorites, which a lot of award winning children’s books are not.
