It's Monday!

Be sure & visit http://teachmentortexts.com for more participants in the "It's Monday! What are you Reading?" meme.

It's spring break which means lots & lots of reading! I've added the books in my travel bag to my currently reading list with hopes of reading them all.

Last week was filled with good books...with the exception of Hidden (House of Night #10). Ugh. i was hoping this was it & the series would have some type of resolution, but instead another book is promised for fall 2013. If you haven't yet picked up Jodi Picoult's Storyteller, you are truly missing out. As usual, she evokes emotions in the midst of a powerful story. The controversial graphic novel Persepolis was another great surprise. First, because i found it hidden on my school library's shelves. Second, because it was an interesting & meaningful read. I will be sharing it with our history department. Lenny Cyrus: School Virus was a treat! I was hesitant to read it because I wondered if everything I love about Joe Schreiber's writing would translate well to a middle school appropriate book. This middle school book was smart, witty, filled with science, and yet I still enjoyed it! I will definitely be ordering it for our library. (Thanks Houghton-Mifflin for the ARC!)

Wishing you a wonderful week filled with good books! :)

    1. I'll probably start it Friday. First student who read it just loved it & we usually have similar reading taste.

  3. Lots of interesting reads! I finished Hold Fast last week. A great story. I've only read Little Brother by Cory Doctorow and I wonder if I reread it or read a different book by him if I would interpreter it differently seeing as I'm older than when I read Little Brother. Does that make sense? Or maybe just rereading Little Brother with different background information would be different. I love your range of reading. :)

    1. Little Brother is the only Doctorow book I've read...and actually I listened to the audio which was fantastic. Homeland is a great sequel--just need my copy to arrive!
