It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Jen & Kellee over at Teach Mentor Texts host a meme every Monday that invites people to share the children's and young adult books they have been reading over the past week and what they plan on reading the following week.

You may find more complete information about what I am reading at Goodreads or by clicking on the Goodreads widget along the side of my blog.

The Previous Week:

Mark of Athena and The Diviners were on the 2012 Nerdy Shortlist so now I only have 17 more to go to finish off that little challenge. Diviners was by far my favorite book of the week and it took the most time. I am hoping I escape without nightmares. Seriously creepy book. The Passover Lamb was my favorite picture book. Sweet.

I have a "to do" list a mile long, so I am keeping the post short today.

The Coming Week:
I am listening to Terry Pratchett's Nation on CD and will continue but may not finish up this week. I am also reading Mitali Perkins' Bamboo People. I have Pipestone: My Life in an Indian Boarding School and Joan Bauer's Almost Home on deck so I will probably start one of those too. What are you reading?


  1. I rarely reread books, but know I am going to spend time with The Diviners again! I am thinking audio this time, except I am worried about actually hearing that song. Oh, that creepy creepy song! You need something light and fluffy after that one!

  2. The song would completely creep me out & I really wouldn't want it stuck in my head. I know I should find something really upbeat & silly now.

  3. I really enjoyed Joan Bauer's Close to Famous and I'm looking forward to reading more from her. I can see her appeal with tween girls for realistic fiction. And I'm eyeing a few of your picture books, too! I loved the book design for Open This Little Book. Chronicle does such a great job with their "concept" books!

  4. I still need to finish Mark of Athena. I can't keep ahold of a copy long enough to finish.
