It’s Monday! What Are You Reading, is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.
Other Than Reading...
I don't know where this week went. Monday at the Elementary was crazy. To celebrate the completion of our new addition, the principal hired a couple of DJs and all of the kids went to a dance party during their "Specials" time. I spent the afternoon dancing with my students. On the positive side, this is the first time this year that my Fitbit registered over 10,000 steps. On the negative side, I didn't know it was going to happen and it messed up my week's lesson plans.
I also had two meetings this week that took up Tuesday evening and Thursday late afternoon. I'm glad to have those meetings out of the way. As a holdover from the crud I've had for a couple of weeks, I found myself taking naps when I got home from school each day which really cut into my reading time. I am feeling much better now and think I might be able to stay awake all day today.
Next week is midquarters. My sixth graders grades are all caught up and we have moved on to a unit on Internet Safety. It is hard to believe that we are in the middle of our third quarter already.
Read Last Week
Uprooted by Naomi Novik this week. I loved both the story and the language. My review will be posted on March 12.
The Inn Between by Marina Cohen was a very creepy middle grade book. While I figured out what was happening pretty early on, I still enjoyed the story and was eager to see the two best friends figure out what was happening. My review will be posted on March 17.
Winter by Marissa Meyer this week because I can't wait any longer to find out what happens in this conclusion to the Lunar Chronicles series.
- Behind the Canvas by Alexander Vance
- The Shadow Queen by C. J. Redwine
- The Girl from Everywhere by Heidi Heilig
I had an empty mailbox this week. Next week should see two new arrivals from Penguin's First to Read Program though.
You can check Inside of a Dog (my other blog) to see what adult books I read, reviewed, and plan to read.
