Originally hosted by Sheila at Book Journey, Jen and Kellee over at Teach Mentor Texts host a kidlit version of It's Monday! What are You Reading?
What I read last week:
See You at Harry's by Jo Knowels
It's not often that I finish a book in a weekend anymore, but with See You at Harry's, I finished it in about 24 hours. It's such a heartbreaking yet heartwarming story. I still can't get Fern and her family out of my head.
I Am Invited to a Party! by Mo Willems
I can't get enough Elephant and Piggie! :)
Zorro Gets an Outfit by Carter Goodrich
I will read any book with a pug in it. But a pug in a ridiculous superhero outfit? Count me in!
Audiobook I finished last week:
The Witch of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth George Speare
I remember reading this book in 8th grade and really enjoyed it. I don't think I loved it this time as much as I did when I was in 8th grade but it was still a great story. I really enjoyed the audiobook narrator too.
What I'm currently reading:
Sugar and Ice by Kate Messner
I used to be a figure skating junkie all through middle school and high school. I never learned to skate myself, but I loved to watch it and wished I could feel that freedom of flying on the ice. So I love that Kate Messner gets a skating story right. Too many times I have read stories that involved skating and the author didn't come close to showing they knew anything about the sport of figure skating.
What I'm Currently listening to:
The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place: The Unseen Guest by Mary Rose Wood
I have listened to the previous two Incorrigibles books on audio because Katherine Kellgren is one of those narrators that makes the book even better than it would have been if you had read it. She's not disappointing with her third installment.
What I reviewed last week:
Brothers at Bat: The True Story of an Amazing All-Brother Baseball Team by Audrey Vernick, illustrated by Steven Salerno
