Completed in the last two weeks: I finished Cress by Marissa Meyer, Scowler by Daniel Krauss, and Into the Still Blue by Veronica Rossi all on audio. Scowler won the Odyssey Award for audiobooks and it is well deserved. Look for a post on the creepiness that is Scowler coming soon. A few hours ago I finished Barry Lyga’s The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Gothgirl in hardback. I was pleasantly surprised by Lyga’s story although I’m not sure it is appropriate for my middle schoolers and I KNOW Scowler is only for older audiences. Hell, I was a little disturbed sometimes. All of these titles were well worth my time.
It’s Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journeys. It is a great way to recap what you read and/or reviewed the previous week and to plan out your reading and reviews for the upcoming week. It’s also a great chance to see what others are reading right now…who knows, you might discover that next “must read” book!
The lovelies at teachmentortexts.com this would be a fun meme to start up with a kidlit focus: anyone reading and reviewing books in children’s literature. It can be picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels – you name it in the world of kidlit and it’s in! I love being a part of this meme and hope you do, too! I encourage everyone participating to go and visit the other kidlit book bloggers that link up and to comment on as many posts as you can. We love talking books and believe in sharing and discussing what we’re reading. We hope you join us!
I will be diving into Far Far Away by Tom McNeal and starting Lauren Oliver’s newest Panic on audio. If I finish with time to spare, I may even dive into A Dash of Magic by Kathryn Littlewood.
