It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 6/10
It's Monday! What are you reading? --From Picture Books to YA--is a weekly meme hosted by Jen and Kellee at Teach Mentor Texts. Head over to their blog for links to many great blogs and a plethora of good book suggestions.
I cannot believe that we have arrived at the end of the school year already! I am so excited for summer #bookaday and Teachers Write this summer. I loved my experience in Teachers Write last summer and am really looking forward to participating more this summer.
This was another slow reading week with preparations for the 8th grade completion ceremony and picnic, along with the last days of student work to plan for. The weekend was full of errands and shopping and finalizing the slide show so there was not much time for reading left.
Books I Finished Last Week:
Books I am Currently Reading:
I started reading The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom this week. I am loving the humor so far. I also started Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe this week. I am also enjoying this one.
I will play it by ear this week. My last work day is Thursday so I will probably take some time next weekend to do a reading marathon. I found the entire Pretty Little Liars series on clearance at Half Price Books today so I might start with some of those because I know they will be quick. I am also looking forward to starting Code Name Verity. I saved it for summer because I knew I might need to give it more focused attention in the beginning. I also want to take time to read some books in Spanish this summer. I have been so focused on reading a lot that I have been neglecting that. It is always good practice for me to spend some time thinking in Spanish.
