It's Monday!

This past week I read:


Nevermore was good, but I didn't really like how it ended.  No spoilers but I just felt like after investing time into 8 books, it could have pulled together just a bit more.  Maybe it was just me...

The Qwikpick Adventure Society was a family read-aloud.  I honestly almost couldn't finish reading it to my kids because I was laughing so hard.  Tom Angleberger absolutely gets it.  He gets what makes people laugh and how to write about it.  I highly recommend this one as a read aloud, but be prepared for students being grossed out and laughing all at once.  :)

This week, here are my planned reads:


2 are already in progress and the first I'm just beginning...

Should be a great reading week!

  1. I was recently told about the graphic novel for A Wrinkle in Time. I did not care for that book as a kid, but I am thinking it might hook some of my students. I can remember the vivid descriptions in this book, so I am thinking it will lend itself well to being a graphic novel.

  2. Oh! Wild is easily one of my favorite books of the past year (at least). You're in for such a treat. And the Wrinkle in Time graphic novel looks amazing. So far, I've only read the excerpt that the artist posted a few weeks back, but I'm hoping to pick up a copy of the book itself when I go to Powells in Portland next week.

    Have a great week!
