It's Monday, What are you Reading?
Although I have been reading, much of my reading this past week has been on education books for book clubs. A few chapters here and there but not yet finished these books. I am enjoying the sharing of thoughts on these books though and so am spending a bit more time online.
I did read these books though:
Hound Dog True by Linda Urban
I finally read this book that has had such wonderful reviews. I enjoyed it immensely. Such a sensitive story and well written.
Willow Run by Patricia Reilly Giff
I enjoyed this story and main character Meggie, whose life is upturned when her family must move to Willow Run in 1944.
Sourpuss and Sweetie Pie by Norton Jester Cillus and Chris Roschka
I saw this in a bargain bin and bought it because of Chris Roschka. I did enjoy the story about a little girl's two sides. Interesting illustrations a s well.
A Page out of Life by Kathleen Reid
A book for me, about scrapbooking friends and how they support each other. A bit farfetched at times, but it was an enjoyable light read.
Still reading - a number of teaching books and art books.
Next I will be reading The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. I had resolved not to buy any more books, but saw this and remembered the reviews and knew I had to read it.
I still have 5 or 6 other books started but not finished! I have to be in a certain frame of mind to read books and some books just call to be read. The Book Thief was one of them.
I also finally made it back to the library last week and picked up a number of YA books. The Mighty Miss Malone by Christopher Paul Curtis and Inside Out and Back Again by Thannhha Lai will be next on my list to read.
Be sure to check out the reviews here and here.
