Teach Mentor Texts host this weekly meme to discuss the books we're reading, especially kidlit and YA titles. Head on over to their blog to get some great ideas of good books to read.
I am getting to the point in the summer when I start to get a little depressed about how quickly the summer has gone. I still have a couple weeks until school starts, but I am seeing the days dwindle down and start to feel stressed out about the size of the tbr pile that I didn't get to yet. I am now prioritizing which books to read before school starts and will start to have less time for reading because I will be planning.
This week I feel like I read less than usual. I have been distracted by the Olympics and some time has been spent working on curriculum maps for the coming year.
Books I Finished this week:
Books I am Currently Reading:
Postcards from No Man's Land by Aidan Chambers
Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry by Mildred D. Taylor
10 Things Every Writer Needs to Know by Jeff Anderson
Daughter of Smoke and Bone (audiobook) by Laini Taylor---gotta love the free downloads on Sync
Books I am planning to read:
The copy I was waiting for of Readicide by Kelly Gallagher finally came in so I will dig into that one. I still would like to get to Opening Minds before school starts also. Other than that it will be whatever floats my boat :)
Summer Bookaday Progress: I am happy to report that I have surpassed my goal for books this summer. I now have a total of 81 books. When I go back to school at the end of August I will have had 76 days of summer vacation. I can't wait to see what the grand total is at the end of the summer!
