#IMWAYR Sci Fi and an Award Winning Picture Book

It's Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Date. 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.

Lots of picture books this week! There were some dead bookfair times where I actually just sat and read  plus a visit to the public library.


Armada ... I so enjoyed it! I mean, I'm not a gamer at all but I did enjoy all the sci fi references. Plus I listened to the audiobook and having Wil Wheaton read it to me was even more fun. I didn't like the language but I know that is a personal thing.

Last Stop ... WOW. I'm actually glad for the award buzz because "realistic" type picture books are ... just not something I usually pick up on my own. But it was so lovely! I gave the music teacher a pb copy from the fair for the middle description of what music can do for you ... but there are so many other reasons to get a copy. Kids with grandparents. Kids in poverty. Kids of color. Great description of small moments.

Those were my two favorites. The rest if you click on the image it will take you to Goodreads for more info. Fun but not the BE ALL END ALL of picture books. Do You Know Dewey? ... I almost hate to say it but bleh.

NEXT WEEK IS SPRING BREAK! I might be a little bit excited. Lots of reading as I'm not going anywhere. So. I might already have 1000+ on my TBR but I'm about to blog hop and add your titles! :)
