#IMWAYR Sept. 21

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 and Unleashing Readers.


Of course Esteban is my favorite crayon (I do like "leafy" green, as opposed to pea green). Phantom Bully was funny ... though a lot about a girlfriend. Nothing explicit by ANY means, just not anything the third graders who pick this up need. A lot about bullying as well. A Night Divided was interesting, as a child of the 80s who remembers "the night the wall fell." Don't see it attracting any readers at the elementary level, though, and not really quite sure about middle school unless assigned.


The professional ones will be on here for a while. they get read slowly. I will probably finish the League in the next day or two as it's quick. Weatherbox was good ... just not quite enough to stop me from getting distracted by other books and school.  Both The Rithmatist and The Hollow Boy are audiobooks. I've been sick and would just always fall asleep if I tried to listen in bed the day I stayed home ... and the days I've gone to school anyway I'll admit, I was not all "there" and missed bringing my Kindle out to the car. And would come home and collapse as soon as the day was over anyway. Why do I forget every year how much I dislike fall? I always get sick!

Looking forward to the new SW books coming out. I have so many e-arcs I need to catch up on but let's be honest, those are the ones I'm going to get to first. They are coming tomorrow. I need to get some for school. Disney sent me some posters for SW Reads Day.

  1. I've quite enjoyed Brandon Sanderson's adult fantasy books, so I've been curious about his children's works - I'll have to give The Rithmatist a try one of these days!
