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:
Same Sun Here by Silas House and Neela Vaswani
I finished reading:
An Age of License: A Travelogue by Lucy Knisley
That settles it. I will be
reading everything Lucy Knisley publishes, no questions asked. Between
this book, French Milk, and Relish, I am completely smitten with her
I finished reading with my ears:
Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen
I have a confession to
make: this is my first time reading a Sarah Dessen novel. It feels
sacrilegious to say that since I'm an avid reader of YA, but they just
never seemed to appeal to me for whatever reason. I'm glad I finally
decided to suck it up and finally pick one up because I really enjoyed
Saint Anything. It will definitely not be my last Sarah Dessen novel
that's for sure.
I read one picture book last week and it was a goodie:
Interstellar Cinderella by Deborah Underwood, illustrated by Meg Hunt
Cinderella, rock on with your bad self. I love the message of girl power in this futuristic version of a beloved fairy tale.
Fish in a Tree by Lynda Mullaly Hunt
Currently reading with my ears:
Challenger Deep by Neal Shusterman
This book is incredibly intense. You really do experience Caden's descent into madness, especially when the narrative shifts from first to second person.
