Wow! What an emotional week! I'm still amazed and delighted that The One and Only Ivan won the Newbery award. There were a good 2 days there where I would just cry at the drop of a hat thinking about it.
Last week I finished these audiobooks:
The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen
So, um, I didn't love this one the way everyone else has. It was a good book, but it's just not my kind of book.
Riot by Walter Dean Myers
In contrast, I LOVED this audiobook. I'm going to be writing a review of it very soon.
Period 8 by Chris Crutcher
Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquivel
The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
Last week I posted about:
My thoughts on the ALA Youth Media Awards
Why students knowing their reading rate has transformed my classroom
Unrelated to reading: A yummy balsamic roast beef recipe. :)
