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?
I've gotta be honest: I'm in a total reading funk right now. I think it stems from two things:
1) The American lit class that I'm taking that's eating up a lot of my reading time
2) I cannot tear myself away from the Olympics.
So I'm still reading the same thing I was last week:
Endangered by Eliot Schrefer
And I'm still listening to the same thing too:
Hattie Ever After by Kirby Larson
I did finish a couple picture books:
Parrots Over Puerto Rico by Susan L. Roth and Cindy Trumbore
Mr. Wuffles by David Wiesner
Both were unique and interesting in their own way. I have to say I'm a bit perplexed by Mr. Wuffles, but I can definitely see this as a picture book that kids in a classroom pick up and then all of a sudden there's a big group of kids surrounding the book, marveling at what's inside.
But other than that, I got nothin'
Oh wait, I did have an awesome interview with Natalie Lloyd last week, author of the soon-to-be classic A Snicker of Magic. And I also wrote a review of the book on Nerdy Book Club too. If you haven't already put this book on your TBR pile, do it now. It is one of the most perfect middle grade books to ever grace the children's literature world.
