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.
Last week I reviewed:
The Bombs That Brought Us Together by Brian Conaghan
Last week I read:
I Am Pan! by Mordicai Gerstein
I have always had an aversion to Greek mythology due to having to learn about it via really boring worksheets in 6th grade -- and then later in college having to take multiple choice tests in a children's lit class that only policed whether you read and didn't assess your understanding.
But this picture book/graphic novel hybrid is entertaining, funny, and fun to read. This book and others like it might help cure my mythology aversion.
I also read:
Giant Squid by Candace Fleming, illustrated by Eric Rohmann
Girl in the Blue Coat by Monica Hesse
I'm currently reading:
A Hundred Hours of Night by Anna Woltz
Currently reading with my ears:
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
