It's Monday! What are you reading? is hosted by Sheila of Book Journey. Jen from Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee and Ricki from Unleashing Readers have adapted it to focus on Picture Books to Young Adult Books.
Work has been super busy and I haven't had a lot of time for non-work related reading. Books for the Award Committee that I am on have also started to arrive and lots of my reading time is going to this growing stack. As a result, I have a very small list of books to share. However, you do not want to miss any of these listed below.
Here is what jumped out of the pile...
Nana in the City by Lauren Castillo (Clarion Books, September 2, 2014)
Sleepover with Beatrice and Bear by Monica Carnesi (Nancy Paulsen Books, August 7, 2014)
Here is what I am still reading or just starting...
The Fourteenth Goldfish by Jennifer L. Holm (Random House, August 26, 2014) - I am feeling a bit late to the party with this one. I know I will love it when I finally get to spend some time with it.
Amulet 6: Escape from Lucien by Kazu Kibuishi (Scholastic/Graphix, August 26, 2014) - I lent out my copy of Amulet and just got it back or this one would have been finished for today. However, in talking with my niece, we were both thinking we might need to re-read the previous year's book for a refresher.
A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman (Atria Books, 2014) - This one is for the adult readers of this blog. I don't usually get to read too many adult novels, but this one had so many good review that I just had to get it from the library and though it will probably take me a while to finish it, so far so good.
So, what are you reading?
