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 been a couple weeks since I've posted. So I have a variety of books to share with you.
I finished reading:
Lost Soul, Be at Peace by Maggie Thrash
The sequel to Maggie Thrash's Honor Girl, this graphic memoir is tinged with sadness, grief, and magical realism.
I finished reading with my ears:
What Happened by Hillary Rodham Clinton
Listening to the audio of this book left me equal parts calmed at her steadiness and bereft at what could have been.
Picture books I loved:
What Can a Citizen Do? by Dave Eggers, illustrated by Shawn Harris
|This is probably the only time you will ever hear me say that the pictures in this picture book are incidental because reading the text straight through without stopping to look at the pictures is actually the real treat here. That is a testament to Dave Eggers’ amazing writing.|
Pig the Star by Aaron Blabey
