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!
The last week I read:
Since this is my first IMWAYR post since August, this is what I’ve been reading since school started. We chose to save some money this year and have our children ride the bus home from school rather than being picked up by then staying at daycare. So I leave *right* when I am off and bring work home with me, which has definitely been an adjustment! I’ve missed reading and posting about reading, so I’m hoping to get back into this blogging schedule!
Cross My Heart and Hope To Spy: I can’t wait to finish the Gallagher Girl series!
Perfect Chemistry: Now I see why my students love this series. I need to push it on some boys.
Berlin Boxing Club: I love stories about this era.
Vortex: Great follow up to Insignia, and a great surprise purchase from my husband!
The Body Finder: I don’t usually read mysteries, but the characters were fabulous, and now I’m invested.
The Scorpio Races: Deadly race horses from the sea + hardcore girl + quietly gentle boy = win.
Bang: Quick read from Sawyer who is seeing a vision of a school shooting. (Also, I love Jules’ family.)
Ask My Mood Ring How I Feel: Great MG read about a girl dealing with the news that her mom has breast cancer.
Where the Stars Still Shine: Hope and healing as Cassie learns what a real family is all about.
The Dream Thieves: The tortured Raven Boys are even more tortured.
Tumble & Fall: The only real “meh” book that I read. 3 teens wait for astroid to hit Earth.
The Absolutely True Story of a Part-Time Indian: Reread for book talk. Perfect post-Wimpy Kid read.
I reread Insurgent to get ready for Allegiant, and thank goodness I did! Still enjoyed Insurgent, and Allegiant was an epic finale with LOTS of Jenn tears.
