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 This Week:
I have to admit, I wasn't sure I would like Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige. I am not always a fan of adaptations of stories like this. (I really did not like the book Wicked, for example) However, I really liked this one. It was very imaginative and twisted. I know that teenagers would absolutely love this twist on the classic story. I am very curious to see what happens next in Oz. I recommend this one to teens and adults.
Books I Am Currently Reading:
I think 1Q84 is going to be on this list for months! It is SOOOO long. I am really enjoying it so far though so I will stick through it. I am also still reading Deep Down Dark: The Untold Stories of 33 Men Buried in a Chilean Mine and the Miracle that Set Them Free. The book reads like a novel even though it is a true story. I am listening to Around the World in 80 Days also.
I am not really sure what to read next. I have the book Revolution on my shelf and want to read that, but I haven't read Countdown and don't have that one. Do I need to read Countdown first?
What are you reading this week? I would love to hear from you in the comments! Have a great reading week!
