It's Monday! What are you reading? is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journeys. Jen Vincent over at Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee Moye from Unleashing Readers decided to put a children's and YA spin on it and they invite anyone with an interest to join in. You can participate by creating your post then visit one of their sites to add your site. Finally, visit at least three participant blogs and comment to spread the love.
If you want to know more about what I am reading, visit me at my Goodreads shelf. Images via Goodreads unless otherwise noted.
Moonday was slightly bizarre, but certainly creative. Having a moon in your backyard is not exactly anything I had ever imagined. I'm a Frog! made me smile. I love Elephant and Piggie. It did remind me a lot of the book Ribbit! another pig wanting to be a frog. They would be fun to read together.
Every Day After was a look into the Great Depression, emotional depression, family and friendship. Lizzie fights hard to make her father proud and learns a lot about herself in the process. I enjoyed Lizzie's courage.
I was looking forward to Winger after hearing so many positive things, but I hadn't actually read a review so didn't know what to expect. I knew there would be humor and there was plenty of that. There are many funny bits and a lot of cringe-worthy moments, but the book has more than that and it managed to make me cry.
The Coming Week:
I am almost finished listening to Fangirl and have been enjoying it. I will start If I Ever Get Out of Here soon and I need to start Allegiant soon before I accidentally see a spoiler. There have already been enough hints and "outrage" comments that I am wondering all sorts of things. Have a great week of reading!
