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.
The Past Week
This was a wonderful week of reading. I finished a few more Nerdy nominees before voting. What the Heart Knows was fantastic. Sidman has created beautiful poems that do speak to the heart. They can even inspire a bit of poetry writing. I think I'll be reading this one many times in the future.
Knock Knock was not a nominee, but I wonder if it would have made the list had it been published earlier in the year. It may not have been read by very many people yet. It's a powerful book based on the poem Daniel Beaty performs below:
The Coming Week:
I am listening to Little Women which is a re-re-re-read or something like that. I have lost count over the years. I started re-reading The Hobbit since we had a Tolkien marathon on Sunday. We watched both Hobbits and the Lord of the Rings trilogy complete with hobbit food. I have a large stack of books for winter break, but don't know which ones I will get to. I started The Living and am loving it. What will you be reading? Have a fantastic week.
