It's Monday! What are you reading? 12-28-15
It's Monday! What are you reading? Is a wonderful community of readers, teachers, and librarians. Hosted by Jen over at Teach Mentor Texts along with Kellee and Ricki at Unleashing Readers, participants share their reading adventures from the past week along with their reading plans for the week ahead.
Bring on Christmas break! I'm making up for all the reading I missed out on over these past few months because of finishing up my last semester of grad school.
I finished reading:
The Key to Extraordinary by Natalie Lloyd
While it took me longer to get into this book than A Snicker of Magic (I was in by page 1 of that one), The Key to Extraordinary still has that sweet, sensitive, magical prose that Natalie Lloyd is becoming known for.
The Marvels by Brian Selznick
An enjoyable read, though I liked Wonderstruck and The Invention of Hugo Cabret better.
Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates
Transformative. World-view changing. A book every American should read.
Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon
Currently reading with my ears:
A Step Toward Falling by Cammie McGovern
