It's Monday, What Are You Reading - April 28, 2014

Trying to get back into the groove of reading and blogging about reading! Haven't done one of these since last year! And yes, I know it's not actually Monday...

It's Monday, What Are You Reading is hosted by Teach Mentor Texts each week.

Read Shelf

Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire by JK Rowling - rereading, mostly through audio. Love this series.
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley - sharing this with teens for our local library! One Book, One Michiana!
Wild by Cheryl Strayed - gave this one away to staff for World Book Night. Looking forward to the movie.
Princess Labelmaker to the Rescue by Tom Angleberger - great idea! You could spin-off this by giving kids a classic and having them interpret it for today's audience.
The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes - not my usual fare but I couldn't put it down! Nice twist.
Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins - Romance and butt-kicking and fantasy. Plus, some smart humor. Win.

Batty About Books is currently reading Not A Drop To Drink by Mindy McGinnis we finish up this Saturday, May 3, 2014. Stop by. Here are links to what Maria and I have discussed so far:
Cover Appeal
Part 1
Part 2
Final - Saturday

Currently Reading Shelf

Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix - this was my least favorite. I'm currently waiting for the audio to arrive at the library.
More Baths, Less Talking by Nick Hornby - this is a compilation of Hornby's columns for the Believer magazine.  It's like a book of It's Mondays except it's monthly and he lists what he bought and what he actually read then he talks about the books.  I may still that idea for my next post.
Seasons of Wonder (Remnants, 1) by Lisa Bergren - that cover is misleading. That's the series title. I thought I wanted to read some scifi and it's new so I picked it up.
To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee - I've never read this. Trying to remedy my classic-less background. Wish I could take a college-level lit course. Also, I believe it was Harper Lee's birthday. Let's see if I make it through this time.

Honestly, with the exception of the Hornby book, I'm not actively reading anything. I just have these on deck...

In the Future
I need to start reading for our One Book, One School next pick. We have some books on the list this year that I haven't actually read. I need to read them. I have 2 or 3 books I'm championing right now but one I need to re-read soon too!

Batty About Books will start Vessel by Sarah Beth Durst. I will post the dates as soon as we decide them.

Hopefully we'll see you next week!
