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.
Each week I'll recap what I've read/reviewed the week before
and then look ahead to what I am planning on reading/reviewing in the upcoming week.
Last week's book adventures:
Just as I thought I was getting back into a steady reading groove, I had one of those weeks where I wasn't home most evenings. This led to a pretty nominal reading week (1 YA, 1 early chapter book, 1 early reader, and 5 picture books). I find I get cranky when I don't have time to read. It probably has more to do with not having time to recharge, but reading is one of the ways I recharge. I did have a great week in terms of books and author encounters. I am working on some posts about the fabulous Katherine Applegate's visit to my school, the Breathless Reads Tour that stopped by Once Upon a Time, and also the wonderful SCIBA Dinner.
The Amazing Adventures of Supercat! by Kate McMuller; Illustrated by Pascal Lemaitre
The Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare
I am saving one of the books for Nonfiction Picture Book Wednesday so I won't mention it yet.
Upcoming book adventures:
Timeless by Gail Carriger - If I read nothing else this week, I am going to read this book. It is on my must read list and it comes out on Thursday. I am addicted to Carriger's Steampunk Paranormal Series. I admit that it is complete cotton candy reading fun, but sometimes that is the best kind of book. Timeless is the final book in the series and I just can't wait to read it.
So, what are you reading this week?
Please share! And remember to check in at Sheila's or Jen & Kellee's blog to see what they and others are reading!
