It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 6/16

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? --From Picture Books to YA is a weekly meme started by Jen at Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee at Unleashing Readers. This is a chance for bloggers to recap their week of reading and share their plans for the next reading adventures they will take. Visit the host blogs for a list of great blogs participating in this meme and a whole bunch of titles to add to your to-read lists.

This week was a crazy, hectic week so I didn't get much reading in.  I am looking forward to much more time to read this week.

Books I Finished This Week:

Breadcrumbs by Anne Ursu was a story that pulled me in from the beginning.  My heart broke for Hazel and I wanted to see how things would work out for her.  The fantasy part was more far-fetched than I usually like to read, but it was well done in this book.  I recommend this one for middle grades and up.

That Workshop Book by Samantha Bennett was a perfect professional book to read at this point of the year.  I am busy working on packing up to move to a different classroom and reading this book really helped me to start remembering the things I would like to have in place next year.  I love that this book was full of glimpses into other classrooms and chock full of great ideas for workshop teaching.  I will definitely come back to my notes over and over while planning for next year.

Books I am Currently Reading:

I am reading a mystery book by one of my favorite authors, Camilla Lackberg.  I also started listening to The Clockwork Princess.

What's Next?
I don't know what will come next.  I will go with what I feel like reading this week.


  1. Camilla Lackberg is a new name to me, thanks! I hope you get to relax with some good books this week! ~Megan

  2. I loved Breadcrumbs--did The Real Boy lead you to that one? If not, I highly recommend reading it next :)

  3. I haven't read anything by Anne Ursu yet - hopefully before the year ends. Have a great reading week, Andrea!
