It's Monday! What are you reading? 2/18
This weekly meme is hosted by the lovely ladies at 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 very busy week for me. I volunteered to be the Student Council advisor this year so my week was filled with way too many hours of helping sort out the flowergram and candygram sale for Valentine's Day. So, this weekend I did a read-a-thon of sorts because I wanted to take the weekend off.
Books I Finished This Week:
Books I Am Currently Reading:
I am listening to The Selection by Kiera Cass and really enjoying it. I am also reading You Gotta BE the Book by Jeffrey Wilhelm. I enjoyed his presentations at the conference I went to and am really curious about the things he has to say in his books. This one is really full of research and it is fascinating to read about what he discovered by studying his students who were avid readers. I hope that there are more practical suggestions later in the book.
I will be reading Period 8 this week for sure. Other than that, I am not sure what I will grab off the shelf. I have a couple Walter Dean Myers books that I want to read so I can get them to school and they usually go quickly so those may be the next picks. I also have Grave Mercy which I am excited to read so I might start that one. I also have a pile of professional books to get to. I most likely will read Notice and Note if I get done with the Wilhelm book. Really, I will just play it by ear as always...we shall see next week.
