What I Read Last Week
Last week, I read two books I’m looking forward to sharing with students. I finished Shine by Lauren Myracle. It was a beautiful book that I am hoping to make a choice book for literature circles in the 10A class. I also read Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally. It was a very light read and I can see a number of my female readers enjoying it and passing it around this year.
What I am Reading This Week
First, I will be finishing Beauty Queens by Libba Bray. I have loved every page of this book! I am borrowing it from a colleague. I love the satire and want my own copy for the classroom. Teenage girls should read it to get some of the important messages the book sends.
I also plan on reading the ARC of Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi! Jillian over at Heise Reads (http://www.heisereads.com/) is hosting an ARC tour of this book. I am next on the list and it was dropped in the mail Saturday. Hopefully it is here tomorrow or Wednesday. Everyone has raved about the book so I cannot wait to get my hands on it!
So…what are YOU reading?
