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.
Books I Finished Recently:
Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain was much more fascinating of a read than I thought it would be. It was really interesting to read about the inner workings of restaurant kitchens and the sort of unsavory characters that might be lurking in the finest restaurants. I think it would be interesting to hear what another professional cook or chef has to say about the book.
You just have to read Echo by Pam Munoz Ryan if you haven't already read it. I loved the way music was a theme throughout the book. It is a magical and wonderful story and you will love it.
What happens when a magic mirror whisks you away to a fairy tale? That is what the two main characters in Whatever After find out. It is a fun read and I know that some of my fourth graders are going to love this series.
Books I am Currently Reading:
I am enjoying Hollow City more than I thought I would. I didn't love the first book as much as some people so I was interested in reading the second book but not dying to read it. So far, I am very intrigued with the story and liking the plot better. I am almost done with this one and will probably finish today.
I am not sure what will be next. I know I want to read The Martian so that will probably come off the shelf. I also have a lot of 4th grade books that I want to read so I will probably grab a couple of those. Life is happening at a very fast pace so I am unsure about how much reading time I will have.
What are you reading this week? Have any recommendations for me? I would love to hear from you in the comments!
