“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 (1980 days) and The Iza (1225 days). I’m excited to hear what you’ve been reading.
I have, in fact, been reading. Not as much. But I’ve been doing it. What I haven’t been doing is #IMWAYR. I don’t know if I’ll get this up every week. But I’ll try.
Here’s what I’ve enjoyed during the last week:
I finished three middle grade novels last week.
- A Wig in the Window, by Kristen Kittscher. I listened to this one. It was a lot of fun, though I was unprepared for the staggering number of boob and butt jokes. So, perfect for middle school.
- The Book of Three, by Lloyd Alexander. I reread this for Girls Read book club. some girls liked it, some didn’t. Some couldn’t even get through it enough to come to the meeting. Surprising! But we had a good discussion, all the same.
- “When Did You See Her Last?” by Lemony Snicket. More mystery and fun with language from Mr. Snicket.
I read 1 new picture book last week.
- When Marian Sang, by Pam Muñoz Ryan and Brian Selznick. Fantastic picture book biography.
Right now When I finish this blog post, I’m reading:
The Truth of Me, by Patricia MacLachlan
