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.
May the fourth be with you! Today only I am giving away a copy of William Shakespeare's Star Wars on Twitter. All you have to do is retweet to enter. U.S. entries only please.
Speaking of giveaways, last week I interviewed Newbery honor author Margarita Engle for her new book The Sky Painter. There is also a giveaway to go along with the interview.
Last week I reviewed:
The Boy in the Black Suit by Jason Reynolds
Bone Gap by Laura Ruby
Last week I finished reading:
No Matter the Wreckage by Sarah Kay
I have a review scheduled for this book tomorrow, but, spoiler alert, this is my favorite collection of poetry EVER.
I finished reading with my ears:
Skink -- No Surrender by Carl Hiaasen
glad this wasn't my first Carl Hiaasen rodeo because if
it were, I'd likely not want to read any more of his books. I wasn't a huge fan of this one.
To Teach: The Journey, in Comics by William Ayers and Ryan Alexander-Tanner
Currently reading with my ears:
Breakthrough: How One Teen Innovator is Changing the World by Jack Andraka with Matthew Lysiak
Last week on my teaching blog:
