It's Monday! What are you reading? 2-22-16
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.
Last week I reviewed:
Lost in Translation by Ella Frances Sanders
The Key to Extraordinary by Natalie Lloyd
I finished reading:
National Geographic Book of Nature Poetry, edited by J. Patrick Lewis
A beautiful collection of poetry paired with stunning National Geographic nature photos. Put this one on your coffee table.
Picture books I enjoyed last week:
Little Owl's Orange Scarf by Tatyana Feeny
I really enjoyed the sweet, whimsical illustrations.
Acoustic Rooster and His Barnyard Band by Kwame Alexander, illustrated by Tim Bowers
Nobody can spin a verse like Kwame Alexander. His rhyming game is on point.
I finished reading with my ears:
Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews
I don't really have anything good or bad to say about this book. I'm kind of ambivalent about it.
Currently (still) reading:
The Great American Whatever by Tim Federle
Currently reading with my ears:
Light of Day by Allison van Diepen
This book is definitely getting into New Adult territory. It kind of reminds me of a YA version of the movie Taken.
