It's Monday: What Are You Reading - 4/9/12
Check out Teach Mentor Texts with Jen and Kellee to find more #kidlit bloggers joining in this special meme.
In the Past
I finished six books these past two weeks.
There is No Dog by Meg Rosoff - Mock Printz.
The Humming Room by Ellen Potter - Classic Double challenge - will be comparing to the Secret Garden.
Five Lives of Our Cat Zook by Joanne Rocklin - great middle grade read! Giving away a copy of the book here.
The False Prince by Jennifer Nielsen - reading to see if it fits for our One Book, One School.
Life: An Exploded Diagram by Mal Peet - it kept winning the rounds in the SLJ Battle of the Books.
Fake Mustache by Tom Angleberger - because I needed something light to offset 11/22/63. It fit the bill nicely!
In the Present
Graceling by Kristin Cashore - reading this one as a part of Batty About Books with Maria Selke at Maria's Melange. Check out our reactions to the first half of the book here and here.
11/22/63 by Stephen King - my first foray into a Stephen King novel. Heard so much about it! But man, it's +800 pages!!!! I must say that it's fascinating, riveting, and a little creepy and confusing. Loving it.
In the Future
Reviews are in order! I have two Classic Double posts I want to get in this week as well as the third part of Batty about Books.
Happy Monday! What are your reading plans?
