I'm joining Teach Mentor Texts in discussing our reading this week. Go to their site to find out who's reading what and link up your own blog!
I've been reading the "It's Monday" posts for such a long time! I'm excited to finally join in!
I had an amazing weekend of reading. When you put together beautiful weather for reading on the patio, no plans, and a husband at work, you end up with 7 books read in just three days. Wow!
Here are the books I read last week:
The Origami Yoda Books by Tom Angleberger (review posted)
Close to Famous and Hope Was Here by Joan Bauer (review to come)
The Mixed -Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E. L. Konigsburg
I had never read this Newbery-Winner, but it came highly recommended by some kids in my class. I am glad I can now say I've read it. Wouldn't it be amazing to live in a museum for a few days?? But not much longer. I'd get tired of hiding out!
Rebel McKenzie by Candace Ransom (review posted)
Some books on my to-read list this week:
Prisoner B-3087 by Alan Gratz (Highly recommended by a student in my class)
The Always War by Margaret Peterson Haddix
This is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith
Winger by Andrew Smith
