What Are You Reading?

It's Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journeys. It is a great way to recap what you read and/or reviewed the previous week and to plan out your reading and reviews for the upcoming week. It's also a great chance to see what others are reading right now…who knows, you might discover that next “must read” book!

Our Kid Lit to YA version is hosted by Teach Mentor Texts.

Last Week's Book Adventures
I did finally finish When Live Gives You O.J. by Erica Perl. Took me a while because I misplaced it. Oops. The Grandpa in this story made me laugh. He was LOUD. Zelly learns some good lessons in this one. Talk it up to teachers of 2nd grade and up for read alouds and 4th or 5th grade for independent reading.
I STARTED Rogue But that was all. Started.
Oh, and I read Ashes, Ashes by Jo Treggiari. Liked that one OK. If you're only going to read one dystopian fic title, though, don't pick this one.
Bought Oliver Jeffers' Stuck. LOVE it. Many kiddos won't be able to read it independently because the print is a script style font ... but I can't wait to share it in a storytime!
That was about it. Not a super reading week, was it?

The Coming Week's Reading Adventures
Finish Rogue. I do enjoy this series. All sorts of fun acronyms.
Must read The Death Cure!
Also started The Notorious Benedict Arnold: A True Story of Adventure, Heroism & Treachery.
Still want to read The Secret Prince and The Fingertips of Duncan Dorfman soon.
Will not mention how many other books I have checked out of the library. The law of the library ... put several books on hold and even if it's spread over two months they will all come in at once during a highly crazy time where reading energies and time are low!
I need to finish several electronic ARCS I've received from NetGalley. First on that list is Stealing Magic: A Sixty-Eight Rooms Adventure.


  1. I haven't been finding all that many fabulous things, either. Maybe over break!

  2. Some great books! I really want to read When Life Gives You OJ, I've heard people talk about it and pair it with other books I've read. I have Stuck in my library bag. I just remembered I need to read it! I'm reviewing Death Cure on our blog his week...if you've read the first 2 books already I think it's safe to read the review without spoilers for Death Cure. I've got Stealing Magic to read, too! Too much reading to be done and too little time (as always)!!!
