It's Monday! What are you reading? 3-7-16
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.
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.
Check out my current blog tour giveaway:
A Tyranny of Petticoats, edited by Jessica Spotswood
Last week I reviewed:
This Bridge Will Not Be Gray by Dave Eggers, illustrated by Tucker Nichols
The Great American Whatever by Tim Federle
Booked by Kwame Alexander
Picture books I loved last week:
The Knowing Book by Rebeca Kai Dotlich, illustrated by Matthew Cordell
There is something so profound and transcendent about this book yet I can't put my finger on what it is. The words feel like song lyrics even though they don't rhyme. There's just a rhythm and a depth to the words that goes beyond just a picture book for children. This is one of those books I will surely have to own.
The Night Gardener by Terry Fan, illustrated by Eric Fan
Absolutely stunning. I will be writing a full review of this one soon.
Currently (still) reading with my eyes and ears:
The Way I Used to Be by Amber Smith
Paperweight by Meg Haston
