It's Monday!

This week I read:

It was a strange week in reading for me.  I didn't enjoy Perry's Killer Playlist as much as I did the first book, Au Revoir Crazy European Chick.  Little White Duck was a beautiful graphic novel, but I don't see many students enjoying it.  Splintered was definitely a YA updated version of Alice in Wonderland (a bit sexier than I expected!).  I'm looking forward to the sequel, Unhinged, due out January 2014.  Leaving Paradise, I think I enjoyed the most.  I may even begin the sequel, Return to Paradise, this week. 

This week I'm reading:

I really want to finish Homeland by Cory Doctorow...but our library copy still hasn't arrived!  I started it a few weeks ago at the bookstore and am SO HOOKED but too cheap to buy another copy!  Lenny Cyrus, School Virus is an ARC from NCTE.  We'll see what the week brings!

I hope you have a fantastic week and take the time to READ!

  1. It shames me that I have not read any Cory Doctorow. Seriously. I enjoyed Simone Elkeles' Perfect Chemistry series and plan to read more of her books. Eventually. Have a great reading week! http://wp.me/pzUn5-1rH

  2. I really need to read Perry's Killer Playlist. I LOVED Au Revoir Crazy European Chick.

    And of course I have tons of love for Penny Kittle and Book Love!

  3. Yay Splintered!! Lol, I can't believe 3 of us were all reading this and finished at the same time :) The author is from TX and is going to be at TeenBookCon in April, so I'm hoping I get to meet her!
    I was planning to read Book Love over Spring Break, but I left it at school :(

  4. I never went back and picked up Splintered. I'm happy to see you enjoyed it though. I had a social studies teacher read White Duck and he felt the same way. He thought it might be too disjointed for the normal student graphic novel reader. Mostly can be used in classes. Keep up the good reading!
