It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 11/4/13


It’s Monday! What are you Reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journeys and invites bloggers to recap what they’ve read this week while planning ahead on what to read next! Jen at Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee at Unleashing Readers added their own twist by focusing on kidlit, from picture books up to YA.

Hey literacy lovers! Not much to report, but I have been finding time to read here and there. I am, however, really excited about the books in my TBR list. Lots of great titles coming up!

Here’s what I’ve read lately:

Storm Runners by Roland Smith
MG Adventure
My Goodreads Rating: 4/5 Stars
This faced paced story about storm chasers has major kid appeal. I plan to start reading this to my 7th graders this week!


Allegiant (Divergent #3) by Veronica Roth
YA Dystopian
My Goodreads Rating: 5/5 Stars
Sigh. What a crazy ending to this story! I definitely (like almost everyone else I know) needed time to process how Roth decided to end her series. I give her major credit for doing it the way she did. I really hope she has something else being published very. very soon!


Just One Year (Companion to Just One Day) by Gayle Forman
YA Realistic Fiction
My Goodreads Rating: 5/5 Stars
I was given a few gift cards for my birthday so of course I bought books! This has definitely been on my wish list and I really enjoyed reading Willem’s point of view of what happened after Just One Day. While I didn’t think it was as good as Just One Day, I still really, really liked it! Write another, Gayle Forman?!

Here’s what I plan to read next: (Click on the cover for more info from Goodreads)

I’m really excited about a few of these upcoming reads – The Naturals looks really interesting, Falling in Love With Close Reading has gotten rave reviews, and I cannot wait to see what happens in Champion. The Legend series is one of my very favorite. I hope you have some special books in your reading future as well!

Happy Reading!
