It's Monday! What are you reading? 6-13-16

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.

It's summer vacation! Woo hoo! On Wednesday, I received some exciting news about what I'll be doing next school year.

Last week I finished reading:

Ms. Bixby's Last Day by John David Anderson
My blog tour post for this book is scheduled for tomorrow. 

I finished reading with my ears:

100 Sideways Miles by Andrew Smith
Grateful to Audiobook Sync for such great selections this summer.

Currently reading:

Jimi and Me by Jaime Adoff
This is a little known YA novel in verse. I just started this one yesterday so I'm not that far into the story yet. 

Currently reading with my ears:

Shallow Graves by Kali Wallace


  1. I am eager to read Ms. Bixby's Day.

  2. I really am excited to get my hands on 100 Sideways Miles - there is something about Andrew Smith that appeals to me so. Keep YA Weird indeed.

  3. I just bought Jimi & Me--hoping to enjoy. I do love a verse novel--though mostly because they're such quick reads. I keep forgetting to download the Sync titles!

  4. I missed the week that 100 sideways miles was available from audiosync. This week, Zac and Mia isn't available to download in Canada. grrr. Good luck next year. While I love inspiring readers, I think my favorite part of being a teacher librarian is working with other teachers and their students on research projects.

  5. Congratulations on the big move, Beth. I think it would be awesome to be a librarian! Guess I'd better find Ms. Bixby's Last Day, and read your post tomorrow! Thanks and have a great week!

  6. So happy for you - it's going to be a great fall for you!
    Looking forward to hearing about Ms. Bixby!

  7. I like reading with my ears too. Have you ever tried Hoopla? It is free through my library. My chapter book pile is overflowing, but I will look into these. Thanks for the suggestions. :)

  8. I am also enjoying the Audiobook SYNC titles. I've been sad that there are so many that I've read, but rereading with my ears is fun, too! I still have to get to 100 Sideways Miles.
