It’s Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journeys where you can recap what you’ve read this week while planning ahead on what to read next! Jen at Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee & Ricki at Unleashing Readers added their own twist by focusing on kidlit, from picture books up to YA.
Clicking the covers will take you to the Goodreads page, where you can add it to your “To Read” list!
Last week I read:
Seraphina: This was a great fantasy read that completely deserved all the praise and awards it received. I loved the character of Seraphina, and I loved the world Rachel Hartman created. I can’t wait to continue the series.
Into the Still Blue: A great ending for a great trilogy. It wasn’t as emotional as the endings to other trilogies lately — I’m looking at you Allegiant! It was quite satisfying, but also a little flat, if that makes any sense at all. I still love Roar!
The Hero’s Guide to Saving Your Kingdom: This was such a great retelling of fairy tales that we all love. My son was in and out of the car when I was listening, so he missed pieces of the story, and he asked if he could listen to it on his own…that’s a definite win! The narrator has AMAZING voices for the characters, and we will definitely be listening to book 2 as well!
This week I’ll continue reading:
I managed to get started on this on Sunday, but I didn’t get far because of the Super Bowl (way to go Seahawks!).
I absolutely loved Etiquette & Espionage on audiobook last summer, and this audiobook is living up to my expectations! Moira Quirk does an amazing job with accents and voices as the narrator of this book!
Other possible reads this week:
I’m not very good at sticking to plans of what I will read, but these are some books that will be in the mix!
