Every Most Mondays, 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 (4.68) and The Iza (2.62). I’m excited to hear what you’ve been reading.
I got behind last week. We were on an annual multi-family ski trip for the long weekend. So, I planned an “It’s Monday, [yesterday]!” post. Then an “It’s Monday, [two days ago]!” post. And then it just got away from me. So this week you get a double.
I have multiple blog posts backed up in my brain. This is the problem when you like to read more than you like to blog. But my house is quiet at the moment, so maybe I will try to crank some out. I have so much fun to share with you!
Here’s what I’ve enjoyed during these last fourteen days:
I finished three middle grade novels and three informational books in the last two weeks.
- The Seven Tales of Trinket, by Shelley Moore Thomas.
- Starring Jules (As Herself), by Beth Ain.
- Stronger than Steel: Spider Silk DNA and the Quest for Better Bulletproof Vests, Sutures, and Parachute Rope, by Bridget Heos.
- 10 Plants that Shook the World, by Gillian Richardson.
- Getting Air, by Dan Gutman.
- Dogs on Duty: Soldiers’ Best Friends on the Battlefield and Beyond, by Dorothy Hinshaw Patent.
I read 18 picture books and/or early readers in the last two weeks. My favorite six were:
- Black Dog, by Levi Pinfold.
- Exclamation Mark, by Amy Krause Rosenthal and Tom Lichtenheld
- Penny and Her Marble, by Kevin Henkes.
- Hugs from Pearl, by Paul Schmid.
- Rabbit and Robot: The Sleepover, by CeCe Bell.
- Infinity and Me, by Kate Hosford and Gabi Swiatkowska.
Right now When I finish this blog post, I’m reading:
The Fourth Stall, Part III, by Chris Rylander.
