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...
I read Summer on the Moon by Adrian Fogelin (expect a post AND guest post for its book birthday coming soon!), I read The Fault in Our Stars by John Green (and had a first time HS volunteer freak out on me, minorly of course, when she found out we were both reading it!)  I started A Voice for Kanzas by Debra McArthur.

March 19:  Its Monday!  post
March 20:  Review:  Slide by Jill Hathaway
March 21:  Review:  Wrong Way by Mark Macleod and Judith Rossell
March 22:  Review:  You Choose
March 23:  Happy Hunger Games!  May the odds be ever in your favor; part 1 of seeing Donalyn Miller---she spoke at James Madison.  I also got to meet Margo Jantzi (@mjantzi) a wonderful librarian who works in the next county south of me and is a member of the #nerdybookclub
March 24:   no post, but it was part 2 of seeing Donalyn Miller speak.  Today, she was at the Northern Virginia Writing Conference

This coming week:
I'm still reading A Voice for Kanzas, I finished the audiobook of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone on Sunday and will hopefully be starting HP and the Chamber of Secrets on audiobook on my Monday morning commute.  When I finish A Voice for Kanzas, I hope to start Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes by Jonathan Auxier.

I'm also toying with an idea that I'd like some help with.  I want this blog to be a resource for teachers to find great books for their students (and if you aren't a teacher and reading this, great books for you, too!), but also great professional books for educators, too.  More about it in a post on Saturday (please watch for it and let me know!)

What are you reading?


  1. Enjoy The Hunger Games Movie!!! It is great.

    Also, aren't the HP audio books amazing! Jim Dale is one of the best narrators.

    Happy reading this week.

  2. Wahoo for Hunger Games! I saw it at midnight but am dragging my husband to see it again this week. I can't wait...and I've already seen it!

    I had to laugh when you said a HS student freaked out when she realized you were both reading TFiOS!!! Too funny. I do that. I get mega-excited when I talk about books with someone else who loves books. I would totally do that same thing.

    Audiobooks are awesome!!!!
