Monday Reading

I'm linking up with the Jen and Kellee at for their great Monday meme.

So, what am I reading this week?

  • Crossing the Tracks by Barbara Stuber - my middle school Battle of the Books team will discuss this on Thursday
  • The 13th Reality: The Journal of Curious Letters by James Dashner- this is NEXT week's Battle of the Books discussion but it's really big! :)
  • The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chboksy - curious about this one since Emma Watson will be in the film version and it's always on my banned books list
  • Okay for Now by Gary D. Schmidt - no, I haven't read it yet :(
  • Second Helpings by Megan McCafferty - this keeps staying at the bottom of the pile so it may have to go back to the library. It seems like since I won't be purchasing the series for school, I don't have time to read books I'm not book talking during the school year.

I'm also reading The One and Only Ivan  by Katherine Applegate to my two kids (K and 5th grade) each evening.  


  1. I haven't read Ok For Now either :(
    The One and Only Ivan looks darling.
    I keep hearing great things about the Jessica Darling series. I bought them used, but haven't read them yet.

  2. I fell in love with Ivan..and I'm not an animal person at all. Such a touching story and a great read to start of 2012! I have read Okay for Now, liked it, but liked Dead End in Norvelt better. I think kids will too. Thanks for sharing your reading!

  3. Okay for Now is great- I hope you enjoy it. Gary Schmidt has a way of giving us a very unique story with memorable characters.
    The One and Only Ivan is on my must read soon list- I hope you and the kids are enjoying it.
    Looking forward to hearing what you think about Perk of being a Wallflower- it is one that is either loved or hated.
