Book Journey, Jen over at Teach Mentor Texts along with Kellee and Ricki at Unleashing Readers also host a kidlit version of It's Monday! What are You Reading?
Last week I finished reading:
Smoke by Ellen Hopkins
This book was sooooooo good. I am both haunted and satisfied with how Hopkins gave closure to Pattyn's story. Lots of tears in the last twenty pages.
Last week I reviewed:
The Real Boy by Anne Ursu
Mastering the Art of Soviet Cooking by Anya Von Bremzen
The Nine Lives of Alexander Baddenfield by John Bemelmans Marciano
Like Lemony Snicket? Try Alexander Baddenfield.
Currently reading with my ears:
Burial Rites by Hannah Kent
Rare is the adult book I actually pick up to read and even rarer is the adult book I actually finish. This is one that I will see through to the very end. Use this book as a reading ladder for students who enjoyed Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys.
