This week I finished some amazing books. I didn't read much because I am trying to write more for NaNoWriMo. I also am trying to get caught up at work which means reading a lot of student writing.
Books I Finished This Week:
Unraveling by Elizabeth Norris is a science fiction thriller. It really grabbed my attention from the beginning and I read it quickly. However, somewhere towards the middle of the book, I lost the ability to suspend my disbelief. The ending of the book was disappointing for me. I will still recommend this one to my science fiction loving students.
I finished listening to Eleanor and Park this weekend. I pretty much stopped what I was doing so that I could listen to the last 45 minutes of the book on Saturday. This was an amazing book. I am glad I listened to the audio. It is really well done. I highly recommend this book to teens and adults.
This was a really great ending to the Legend trilogy. I can't wait to share it with my students who have been eagerly awaiting it. I don't want to say much because I don't want to ruin it for people. I highly recommend this one as well.
Books I am Currently Reading:
I just started The 5th Wave and am very intrigued by the story so far.
I will be starting a new audiobook this week. I have a few to choose from between my downloads from Audible and the free downloads this summer from Sync. I am not sure what else I will pick up. I have not really been following plans lately with my book picks. I might pick up one of the Printz books I have. We shall see.
What are you reading this week? Do you have any great recommendations for me? I would love to hear from you in the comments below.
