Teach Mentor Texts. Jen and Kellee had the brilliant idea to adapt this meme to talk about the great young adult and children's literature that we are reading. Head over to their blog for more great reads and a plethora of recommendations of great kidlit.
Books I Finished This Week:
I had the good luck of being able to use some Scholastic Dollars at our book fair to add to my class library. I spent a lot of that money on some great new graphic novels.
Books I am Currently Reading:
Blood Red Road by Moira Young is the audiobook I am currently listening to. I have found myself much more motivated to get my workouts in now that I have a great book to listen to. I love the narrator on this audiobook!
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer By Michelle Hodkin is so intriguing so far. I get why I have heard so many great things about this one. I can't wait to meet this author in a couple of weeks in Milwaukee and to purchase the sequel which comes out this week.
Books up Next:
I will probably pick up If I Stay by Gayle Forman. I also have The Mark of Athena and The Eye of the Storm to read from the book fair. I also want to get to The Diviners soon. I guess I will see how I feel this week!
