It's Monday! What are you reading?
Teach Mentor Texts. Head over there for more great ideas of kid literature and young adult books to add to your TBR.
This was a slow reading week for me. I was focusing on school towards the beginning of the week and then I got an awful stomach virus and was unable to do much reading. I also tackled a big book so there are less books but maybe a similar amount of pages.
Books I Finished this week:
Books I am currently reading:
I am still reading Energize: Research Reading and Writing by Chris Lehman. There are so many great ideas in this book. I needed to slow down and take some notes with this one. I am also still reading Adventures in Graphica by Terry Thompson. There are a lot of good points in this one about how graphic novels are a great medium to help teach comprehension. I also just started the book Strands of Bronze and Gold by Jane Nickerson. It is also a netgalley book which has a publishing date of March 12, 2013. So far, I am really liking this retelling of the Bluebeard fairy tale.
On the Horizon:
I am not sure what I will choose to read this week. I was just approved for a netgalley of The Runaway King so I will most likely read that but otherwise I will see what I feel like reading.
