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