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?
My Monday posts are generally just a highlight of what I've been reading
during the week so if you'd like to see all that I've been reading,
follow my Goodreads page.
Well we're off and running! Last week was the first week of the new school year and so far everything is great. I wrote about my week over on my teaching blog.
On this blog, I also wrote about two awesome events that happened at Nicola's Books last week:
90 Second Reads with Gae Polisner, Bethany Neal, Lara Zielin, and Carrie Harris
Kathleen Flinn talks about her new book, Burnt Toast Makes You Sing Good
Last week I reviewed:
After the End by Amy Plum
Since I've been so busy with the start of the school year, the only thing I finished reading last week was:
Flight School by Lita Judge
a delightful story about a little penguin who feels in his soul that
he's meant to fly. The illustrations in this book are something special.
I'm putting this on my Caldecott short list.
Horrorstör by Grady Hendrix
Star Wars: Jedi Academy, Return of the Padawan by Jeffrey Brown
Still reading with my ears:
Life by Committee by Corey Ann Haydu
Saving CeeCee Honeycutt by Beth Hoffman
