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.
Last week I reviewed:
Sam and Dave Dig a Hole by Mac Barnett, illustrated by Jon Klassen
The War That Saved My Life by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley
I Was Here by Gayle Forman
As much as I am enjoying this book, I will be glad when I'm done with it because every time I pick it up I get this song stuck in my head.
Currently reading with my ears:
All Fall Down by Ally Carter
I'm really enjoying this book. It has a very Covert Affairs/Burn Notice/Bourne Identity/any-other-spy trope-you-can-think-of-but-with-YA-characters vibe to it. I've never really been a fan of Ally Carter's before but when she talked about the premise for this book at the Scholastic event at ALA Midwinter, I was incredibly intrigued. Given that Wanderlust is part of my blog title, I love that this book's setting is in a (made-up) country's embassy row. Very cool!
