It's Monday...What are you Reading?

I'm linking up with the fabulous Jen & Kellee at www.teachmentortexts.com for their Monday Meme.

Sorry for the silence last week...summer traveling! :) 

So, what have I been reading the past few weeks?


I've already reviewed Babymouse for President  & Because I Am Furniture, reviews for the others will come this week.  

I thoroughly enjoyed The Templeton Twins Have an Idea and look forward to booktalking it with my middle school readers.  

Amy & Roger's Epic Detour will be a hit with my high school readers from our Eliot Rosewater list.  I think I'll be able to booktalk it and "sell" it to both guys and girls because of the strong main characters, Amy & Roger.  

The Knife of Never Letting Go came highly recommended to me by many, many Twitter friends.  It had been in my TBR pile for a year.  Yes, a year! It was one of our Eliot Rosewater nominees last year but I had never taken the time to read the thick 479 pages!  I didn't love it but I didn't hate it.  More to come in my review...

The Journal of Best Practices was another Twitter find, recommended by --------.  It was way out of my "usual" reading habits:  an adult, non-fiction book!  I loved it!  Just what I needed to kick me out of my slump!  (something else I really need to write a blogpost about...)

So, what am I reading this week?

I'm almost finished with this e-ARC by Rebecca Stead and it is AWESOME!

I'm also planning on reading several other ARCs on my Nook courtesy of NetGalley:


I'm at the beach, so I may work in a paperback or two while we're at the ocean! :)

Have a great week and keep reading!

  1. I really was impressed with Knife Of Never Letting Go and gushed in my review... I am curious about your thoughts on it. :)

  2. Amy & Roger's Epic Detour is just such a dang LIKABLE novel. It's pretty much constantly checked out at my library. The cover helps make it look attractive, especially to girls!

  3. Very wide range of books. Looked up the Netgalley ones, but they seem a bit too YA; still, I love that you let us know some of the titles available!

  5. I too have an ARC of the Templeton Twins . . . must get to that one soon. I'll be curious to hear your thoughts on The Knife of Never Letting Go. And I love that Liar and Spy is living up to the blogger/Twitter love.

  9. Templeton Twins is on my TBR list ... maybe this week or the next, too!
    I am about a third of the way through Liar & Spy. I ... I'm not seeing all the fuss but hey. I'm not done yet! I wasn't super crazy about When You Reach Me, either, and I was so in the minority. But that's OK, right? ;]
