Its Monday! What Are You Reading? From Picture Books to YA

Its Monday!  What are you reading?  From Picture Books to YA is a weekly feature hosted by Jen and Kellee of Teach Mentor Texts and inspired by Its Monday!  What are you reading by Sheila at Book Journeys.

This past week:
February 27:  Its Monday! post; I was interviewed by Kathy, The Crazy Bookworm (with pics of me as a kiddo) ; Review:  Dead End in Norvelt
February 28:  Out of the mouths of babes (4):  Bone 1 / Out of Boneville; Review:  About Habitats:  Oceans
February 29:   Review:  Freshman Year and Other Unnatural Disasters (that included a few pics of me freshman year---the horrors!  No, seriously, I found some gems...) ; Out of the mouths of babes (5):  Babymouse Beach Babe
March 1:  Author interview:  Meredith Zeitlin, author of Freshman Year and Other Unnatural Disasters; Discussion Post:  Audiobooks---where to get 'em?
March 2:  Review:  A Place for Bats; Friday Night Mental Movie:  Horton Halfpott vs the cast of Downton Abbey

March 4:  In my mailbox

I finished the audiobook of Horton Halfpott OR The Fiendish Myster of Smugwick Manor OR The Loosening of M'Lady Luggatuck's Corset by Tom Angelberger (later this afternoon, I'll be posting a review.  Hint--I LOVED it!)  I also finished Chaos Walking Book 2: The Ask and The Answer.  WHOA.  These two books totally got me out of last week's reading funk!

I finished Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews.  I'm not sure how I feel about the book.  I feel like it was an insightful look at how cancer affects those who love the people with cancer, but I'm not 100% sure I actually liked it.  Isn't that weird? 

This week:
I'm currently reading:  Chaos Walking (3): Monsters of Men by Patrick Ness
I'm listening to the audiobook of:  Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison

March 5:  This post
March 6:  Out of the Mouths of Babes {6}:  Geronimo Stilton and the Gold Medal Mystery
March 7:  Audiobook review:  Horton Halfpott...
March 8:  Thoughts on the Chaos Walking Trilogy by Patrick Ness
March 9:  Review:  Me and Earl and the Dying Girl
March 10:  This week on Pinterest
March 11:  In My Mailbox

What are you reading?


  1. Several of my kids have been talking about Horton Halpott - and I see different versions of it on your I go to check ''em out!

  2. With all the Chaos Walking talk, now I want to read the third in the series. I might tackle it soon...maybe spring break? Even though I usually get less reading done when I'm off/home. I thought Full Frontal Snogging was entertaining. It's a funny title that I don't think people realize that much what it means!!! The voice is great in those books. :)


Gold stars given to good comments.
