It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

The bad news is that I had a research paper and didn't get to read very much this week. The good news is that it won't take very long to write this post. :)

I did not finish any Caldecotts or Newberys this week, but I did get to finish a 2011 Nerdie nominee, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer. What a surprise this one was. The only thing I knew about it was that it was a young adult book, but was certainly a twisty mind bender. I had a very hard time putting it down.

I also read the middle grade historical fiction book Bird in a Box. The storyline was compelling. The only trouble that I had was that sometimes I had a hard time distinguishing between the two boys' voices. I did enjoy it though.

The only other book I managed to read was Green. This picture book is just beautiful and clever. I love how the illustrations blend from page to page. I know I will read this one many times.

For the coming week:
For the Newbery Challenge, I am almost finished with Roller Skates so I will finish that and start The White Stag. I will also dive into Fake Mustache after finally getting it in the mail today!!! Excited. I have Unwanteds sitting here and Remarkable too. With my class finishing up, I am looking forward to some nice reading time. Have a great week!

  1. I'm waiting for a copy of Green to come in from the library. Hope some time opens up for you to get all the reading in that you want this week. I'm impressed with your Nerdbery progress!
