It’s Monday! What Are Your Reading.


Join Jen from Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee and Ricki from Unleashing Readers and share all of the reading you have done over the week from picture books to young adult novels. I am really enjoying remembering the great books from the last week and the week before.  I wish I could post every week but am having a hard time keeping up.  This, however, is better than nothing.

So what did I read the last two weeks?

I refocused my energies but still came up a little bit short in my reading time.  I think that naturally happens for me when I get started on too many books, I really am just a one book at a time kind of reader.

24686 Loved this book that has been recommended for the Global Read Aloud for its sweet story and cute characters,  The true test was whether Thea, my 5 year old, would sit still for it.  She did and loved it!







13574417I had heard a lot of buzz about this book and was definitely not dissapointed.  I love a quick science fiction read with plenty of action, a hint of love, the seeds of a longer series.








19085562Oh goodness, I cannot wait to review this book!  Fantastic, fun, and great to read.  I was so excited to receive this as an advanced copy (thank you Colby!) and can now see why this will be a contender for the Global Read Aloud.





PanicI am a huge fan of Lauren Oliver and was excited when this came in the mail.  It did not disappoint in the least as I read it in one day.  A little too mature for my 5th graders, but overall a thrilling read.







Lulu and the Brontosaurus How had I not read this book before?  Another contender for the Global Read Aloud, this time for the younger grades.  What a fun book and a great lesson.  I handed it over to my 5th graders today and they loved it.






The Secret of Ferrell SavageThank you Simon and Schuster for this gem of a book.  Super fun and easy to read and it was snatched up by one of my students the moment I whispered “Cannibal…”







Hattie Big Sky (Hattie, #1)One of my all-time favorite books ever and I am using it as a read aloud right now.  some students love it and others have not fallen for it yet.
