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 and Kellee at Teach Mentor Texts added their own twist by focusing on kidlit, from picture books up to YA.
Clicking the covers will take you to the Goodreads page for that book, where you can add it to your “To Read” list!
Last week I read:
From What I Remember: Such a great read! The story is pretty crazy (Kylie and Max end up trapped in van of stolen goods, headed to Tijuana), but it was still somehow believable. It was told from multiple points of view, and I think it’s pretty well established that I LOVE books that are told from multiple POV! The ooooonly negative was the cover. It does NOT do the book justice!
Babymouse: Monster Mash and Lunch Lady and the Author Visit Vendetta: These are such great kid/middle-grade graphic novels! I’m working on inter-library loans to get the whole set of each series so I can read them in order now! My oldest son (9 years old) loves Babymouse, even though she’s pink 🙂
To Dance: I thought the graphics were beautiful, and the story was good. But then it just…ended. Abruptly. Would have liked the story to be a bit more complete.
Freshman Year & Other Unnatural Disasters: I loved this book! It rang so true for anyone who has been through or is going through high school. I did my first book review over this book, which you can find here.
Playground: I will definitely be buying this book for my classroom. The subject matter (bullying, fitting in with “cool” crown, family issues) is something that a lot of my boys will be able to identify very closely with. The fact that it’s written by 50 Cent will make it that much more enticing!
This week I’ll read:
The Librarians vs. Teachers #summerthrowdown starts today, so I’ll be logging my reads to help the teachers earn a victory in this friendly little contest.
What about you? What are YOU reading this week?
