It's 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.

Last week, I read Return of the Library Dragon, The Toadhouse Trilogy: Book 1, and The Total Tragedy of a Girl Named Hamlet.  I also started How to Train Your Dragon.  We also had our Virginia Reader's Choice book selection committee meeting (each state has one), and even though I can't share the titles until April, you Nerdy Book Clubbers will like what we chose. 

Last week's posts:
October 22:  It's Monday! post
October 23:  Review: Return of the Library Dragon
October 24: Review: Ten by Gretchen McNeil
October 25:  Thursday #Thirstday; About the Illustrator: Michael P. White; It's about time for a #schooljoy!
October 26:  Using Pinterest in School {Math Board}

This coming week:
I hope to finish How to Train Your Dragon.  I'll probably start Bloodlines by Richelle Meade.  I also get to hear Jane Hill speak on Thursday.  She is the coauthor of Classroom Instruction That Works for English Language Learners (with Kathleen M. Flynn).  I hope to have some information to share (maybe next week?  I have to wrap my head around it first, then type it all up for you)

Of course, this may all change if the Frankenstorm hits!  And lets be honest, I kind of hope it does---though, in the form of 2 feet of snow would be more desirable than 12 inches of rain. 

October 29:  This post; Rock you like a hurricane (Sandy updates w/ pics)
October 30:  Day 2 Updates; Review:  The Toadhouse Trilogy
October 31:  With a little help from my friends--Everyone's Favorite Halloween/Scary/Ghost Books

What are you reading?


  1. The Total Tragedy of a Girl Named Hamlet...any book with a title like this deserves immediate reading!

  2. That's what I thought, too, when I bought it! I thoroughly enjoyed it :)
