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:
I am about to leave for a National Novel Writing Month gathering, so don't have much time. My favorite book of the week was Waiting is Not Easy! I totally agree with that sentiment and love the expressions on Gerald's face as he goes through the torture of waiting. Betsy-Tacy was a nice old-fashioned story, but I wasn't wowed. I would have enjoyed it when I was a child, but it was a little slow for me as an adult. The Hug Machine was pretty adorable. I got Bramble and Maggie from the publisher and will review it soon.
The Coming Week:
I'm reading Foreign Gods Inc., but that is slow going. I am also finishing up Hunt for the Bamboo Rat and will be reviewing it later this week on Rich in Color. It's a very interesting piece of historical fiction. Beyond that, I will likely read some more picture books since it's picture book month. I hope you have a great week of reading.
