As I go about learning this blogging thing, I thought I might take part in a couple memes that I keep seeing everywhere. These may change as I figure out what works for me, but for today: It’s Monday, What are you reading. This is a weekly meme hosted by BookJourney and for the meme for Children’s books is hosted by Teach Mentor Texts.
Finished Last Week
Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver. I had mixed feelings on this one. However, the topic of bullying is a tough one to tackle and I thought Oliver did a great job. And I enjoy her writing. My review is here.
Other Reviews this Week
The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman. I loved this one. I thought it was a fabulous read. I loved the characters and the magic and whimsy mixed into the macabre and creepy. Great one to share with your middle schooler and up!
The Glass Casket by McCormick Templeman. I picked this book up from the library without knowing anything about it because I liked the cover and the title intrigued me. I’m almost halfway through this book. It started out slow but has really picked up its pace. It reminds me of a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood at this point. Planning on curling up with this book later this afternoon.
Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver. I just started listening to this book yesterday. I loved Delirium so I am really looking forward to getting into this part of Lena’s story.
We homeschool and all three of my children are avid readers as well. Here is what they are reading!
Nathan, 15, Freshman
Madison, 12, 7th Grade
Carson, 10, 5th Grade
