Book Journey. Jen & Kellee from Teach Mentor Texts have adapted this to focus on Picture Books to Young Adult Books.
Some weeks I start a bunch of books but don't finish any or finish some and still are reading others. This past week is one of those weeks. I am juggling several books and a few I finished or am close to finishing.
Almost finished this past week:
Every Day by David Levithan (audiobook) - The audiobook for this one is really good. And Levithan has proven to once again be a brilliant writer.
Goblin Secrets by William Alexander - A very smartly written steampunk, fantasy for Middle Grade readers and the winner of the National Book Award for Young People's Literature.
Finished this past week:
I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga - If you are looking for a well written mystery/thriller and don't mind such a serious and gruesome topic, then I would highly recommend this one.
A Certain October by Angela Johnson - I had never read anything by Johnson before and I can understand why she has been a three-time Coretta Scott King award winner.
Starting this week:
Endangered by Eliot Schrefer
I think I am in for some heavy reading over the next several weeks. I want to finish all of the National Book Award Finalist books for Young People's literature. Goblin Secrets won the category and Endangered was a finalist. Once I finish these two, then I will have 3 of the "heavier" (emotionally) books to tackle.
So what are you reading?
