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...
This was midquarter's week. I spent the week hounding kids to turn things in, assessing and grading. Now I have to wait to see how many parents I hear from. Otherwise, the week was quiet with seasonable weather. Our snow is quickly melting away though we are expecting a bit more this coming week. I know that I am eager for spring and longer days.
Read Last Week
The Nameless City by Faith Erin Hicks. I had both an ARC and a finished copy for review. I enjoyed this graphic novel very much. I thought the art was excellent and the story had more meat than most graphic novels I've read. My review will be posted on March 23.
I got an excerpt from Rebel in the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton this week from Penguin's First to Read program. It contained the first three chapters of this fantasy and was enough that I went to Amazon to buy the book. I should be getting it on release day - March 8. My thoughts on the excerpt will be posted on March 2.
Winter by Marissa Meyer. I am savoring this chunkster as I get to reconnect with the characters from the earlier books. As I write this, I'm on page 370. I'm reading a couple hundred pages and then reading something else so that I can draw out the experience of finishing this story.
- The Girl in the Tower by Lisa Schroeder
- Stone Field by Christy Lenzi
- Flamecaster by Cinda Williams Chima
