It's Monday! What are you reading? From Picture Books to YA - 4/1/13

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 through a stack of books this week.  Some good, some okay, and some that were exceptional.  I also was working on a number of projects while on break and seemed to have started a lot of books but didn't finish them in time for this post (I do plan to finish them). I think I was having a case of "book ADD". 

Here's what stood out from the pile....

Paul Thurlby's Wildlife by Paul Thurlby (Templar, March 2013) - This book just blew me away.  It was a great concept that was well executed.  I learned so much from reading it.

The Book Boat's in by Cynthia Cotten (Holiday House, January 2013) - Interesting piece of book history.

Wilfred by Ryan Higgins (Dial/Penguin, March 2013) - I really liked this unique tale of friendship and consequences.  

So, what are you reading?
