It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 9/8

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.

My reading was really slow this week. I am steeped in planning, teaching, organizing, trying to keep up at home, etc.

Books I Finished Reading:

Into the Volcano by Don Wood is an interesting adventure story. I enjoyed the graphic novel and was fascinated by some of the information I learned about the inside of a volcano. I am not sure it is scientifically accurate, so I will want to go read more about it. 

I really loved The Lions of Little Rock. This book is a great way to help students really understand what race relations were like during the first days of integration. I loved the characters and the story. This would be a great read aloud for learning about history. 

Books I am Currently Reading:

I am reading The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver. I am also listening to The Peculiar by Stefan Bachmann. I haven't made much progress in the Bill Bryson book because I left it in my classroom and keep forgetting to bring it home.  

What's Next?

I have absolutely no idea what will be next. I don't think I will even get through the books I am reading. We shall see. 

I would love to hear from you in the comments!

  1. Hi there Andrea, I own a copy of Kingsolver's Lacuna but wow, that's a THICK novel, so have fun reading. I haven't even made a dent on my own copy. I remember loving her Bean Trees though.
