It's Monday! What are you reading?

This past week I read:

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

THIS is a vampire book with not a hint of sparkling. Holly Black is a master storyteller. Her characters have a depth to them that immediately invests you in their decisions and happenings. This book could easily be the beginning of a series, but stands by itself equally as well.

Tommysaurus RexTommysaurus Rex by Doug TenNapel
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Unusual. Amazing illustrations, but I found the story quite odd.

The Lost BoyThe Lost Boy by Greg Ruth
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I had a difficult time getting into this book. The pictures are gorgeous, but the story was a bit convoluted. I'll be interested to see what students think.

This week I'm reading:

Standard Hero Behavior by John David Anderson

The author is visiting my school on October 9!  I'm so excited to meet him and have all my middle school students meet him as well.  He'll be speaking to all middle school students in a convocation and then signing books/bookmarks/cards after.  Should be an amazing time!

To learn more about John David Anderson, visit his website!

I hope you have a wonderful week filled with great books & time to read them!


  1. I have been wanting to read The Coldest Girl...since I first heard that amazing title. I really enjoyed her Doll Bones. I haven't read Standard Hero Behavior but I did like Anderson's Sidekicked. It was very clever and a fun read.have a great author visit.
