It's Monday! What are you reading? 5-15-17
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 Music of Life: Bartolomeo Cristofori and the Invention of the Piano by Elizabeth Rusch illustrated by Marjorie Priceman
If you know me at all outside of this blog, the fact that I read and reviewed this book does not surprise you one bit.
I finished reading:
Orphan Island by Laurel Snyder
I have a blog tour coming up with this book so I'll save my longer thoughts for that post, but bottom line: this book just begs to be discussed with book clubs and literature circles.
I finished reading with my ears:
Allegedly by Tiffany D. Jackson
This book is intense, page-turning, and wholly unsettling. An ending that will get young people endlessly talking and debating.
Favorite picture book I read last week:
Almost Everybody Farts by Marty Kelley
You can never go wrong with a good old-fashioned fart book to get kids reading.
Saving Red by Sonya Sones
