It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 6/2

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 is such a busy time of the year!!!! I am busy packing up my classroom and getting ready to move to a new classroom and sorting my class library to weed out all the books that are not appropriate for 4th graders.  We also have a week and a half left of school and I am working on finishing up the last minute projects and reflections on the progress we made this year.  

Books Finished This Week:

I love reading these fun adventure books! The 39 Clues series was so much fun, and these Infinity Ring books are definitely holding up.  In this second book, the protagonists are sent back to the time of the Vikings.  I can definitely see some middle grade boys loving this series.

The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han is a nice beach read.  I thought the story was very touching and I really enjoyed reading it.  I am looking forward to reading the other books in this trilogy.  I would recommend this book to teens and adults.

I loved The Apothecary! It was just the right mix of mystery and fantasy.  There were twists and turns in the story and I was kept surprised throughout the entire book.  I highly recommend this one!

This was such a fun picture book!  I can imagine how fun it would be as a read aloud!

Books I am Currently Reading:

I am still listening to Please Ignore Vera Dietz and am reading Beautiful Ruins.  Both are great books!

What's Next?
 It is completely up to my mood in the next week.

What are you reading this week? I would love to hear from you in the comments!!


  1. I haven't even heard of the Infinity Ring series! I am always out the lookout for series to share with my kids--my older son will be a sixth grader. He isn't quite ready for 39 Clues yet (he's a struggling reader and a non-native English speaker) but I'll definitely be filing those two series away for the future! Thanks!

  2. I loved Please Ignore Vera Dietz Enjoy! Also a big fan of Dragons Love Tacos. My students read and reread this title!

  3. Hi Andrea :) I have nominated your blog for the Liebster Award! Check out the award information at

    1. Thanks Kellee! Watch for my blog post next week.

  4. The Apothecary looks interesting indeed. Kind of reminded me a little bit of The Cabinet of Curiosities book cover. Will check it out. Thanks for sharing these titles.
