It’s Monday, [January 28]! What are you reading?


Every Monday, I send out a #booksaroundtheroom via Twitter, so my students can share what they’re reading with the world. “It’s Monday! What are you Reading?” is a meme co-hosted by Jen and Kellee at Teach Mentor Texts. Just like #booksaroundtheroom, it is a way to share books you’ve been reading, reviewing, and loving during the last week. I read a lot, both on my own and with my two kids, Corbchops (4.5) and The Iza (2.5). I’m excited to hear what you’ve been reading.

Mon Reading Button PB to YA

I did not read very much this week. I’m not sure why. January has been really busy, so maybe I’m just a bit tired. Usually, I get a lot of reading done on the weekend, but I spent most of Saturday and all of Sunday at ALA Midwinter in Seattle, hanging out with some authors and meeting #nerdybookclub friends for the first time. So, I guess I have a good excuse.

Here’s what I’ve enjoyed during these last seven days:

Middle Grade:

I finished one middle grade novel and one informational book last week.

  • The Runaway King, by Jennifer A. Nielsen. I loved the sequel to The False Prince. More wit, lies, twists, and bruising. It will be tough waiting for the third book.
  • Frogs, by Nic Bishop. I am in love with Nic Bishop’s animal books. They are informative and accessible and the photos are amazing. Great author’s notes at the end, too.

Picture Books:

I read 7 picture books last week. My favorite was:


On the TMC Guys Read blog, I reviewed Jacob Wonderbar and the Cosmic Space Kapow, by Nathan Bransford.


Right now, I’m reading:

I have three huge stacks of ARCs from ALA, which is a new and bewildering experience for me. I don’t know what to do with them! Before I explore them, I will finish The Dead Boys, by Royce Buckingham, and How They Croaked, by Georgia Bragg, which I’m rereading for Guys Read this week.
