It's Monday! What are You Reading?
I would have call my reading this summer - the "Summer of YA". There have been so many excellent YA novels and I want to read them all!
This past week I read:
One for the Murphys by Lynda Mullaly Hunt.
What an amazing book - loved it and Carley.
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne
I have a number of books relating to WWII this year- this was quite a powerful book. Sure packs a punch at the end.
Notebook Know -How: Strategies for the Writer's Notebook by Aimee Buckner
I already use a reader's notebook, but want to expand my writing programme. This was a very informative book and gave lots of good tools for using a writer's notebook.
I have 3 new books on the go right now. I have so many stacked, several started but then some new book will call to me so they get put aside for now! Between the library, Chapters and Costco, I have been chipping away at my long list of books to be read!
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
The Mighty Miss Malone by Christopher Paul Curtis
The Castaways by Elin Hiderbrand ( a guilty pleasure - just picked up this book yesterday for $5 and a quarter into it)
I am slowly working my way through Guided Math, Guiding Readers, Daily 5 and Cafe.
Be sure to check out the great reads here and here.
