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:
Now that summer is waning away, I’ve been focusing on reading professional texts and planning for school rather than reading for pleasure. However, I did get some good books read!
In a Glass Grimmly was another fun read from Adam Gidwitz. Prodigy was just OMG. There was emotion, mystery, heartbreak, action…everything that you could want! I read both of these ARCs thanks to Jillian Heise and her generous ARC Tours for her Twitter friends! Thanks Jillian!
This was the first time I’ve read Bone, and I love it! I’ve had these in my classroom library all year, but they weren’t read much. I had a bunch of my boys latch on to the Amulet series this past year, and I can’t wait to book talk Bone and build up some excitement about the series.
This week I’ll start/continue reading:
I’ve had Fever checked out from the library for a couple of weeks (don’t worry, I’ve renewed it so I don’t get a fine ;)), and I just can’t get into it. I need to finish it up this week.
I checked out the e-book of The Knife of Never Letting Go from my library a couple of weeks ago. The only bad thing about borrowing e-books is that you can’t recheck them! My time was up before I was finished with the book, so I went and checked out the physical copy of the book. I’ll be finishing this one this week.
I am LOVING this book. I have been wanting to do genre studies in my class — reading and writing within the same genre — and this is exactly the book that I needed to help me think through what I need to do. With my planning, I’m trying to combine my learning from Notebook Know-How and Ten Things Every Writer Needs To Know, and I am really excited about the learning that will take place in my class this year!
