It's Monday! What are you reading? From Picture Books to YA (42)

It's Monday! What are you reading? is hosted by Sheila of Book Journey. Jen & Kellee from Teach Mentor Texts have adapted this to focus on Picture Books to Young Adult Books.

I read quite a few books this past week.  Here is what jumped out of the stack.

Here are a couple of favorites from this week:


Boot & Shoe by Marla Frazee - It's Marla Frazee - need I say more.


Let's Go For A Drive by Mo Willems - I just love Elephant and Piggie and this one is fantastic. 


National Geographic Readers: Halloween by Laura Marsh- A fun early reader about Halloween.  The photography was wonderful.


My Book of Life by Angel by Martine Leavitt- This novel in verse tells a powerful story of prostitution and drug addiction.


Somebody Please Tell Me Who I Am? by Harry Mazer and Peter Lerangis - Another powerful story about the results of an injury sustained during combat duty in the Army by a young man and the impact on him and his family and friends.


Grave Mercy by R.L. LaFevers - Historical Fiction meets Fantasy Fiction for a very interesting read.

So what are you reading?
