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 a quiet week as we are winding down the first quarter of the school year. Our girls' soccer team is playing in the State Semifinals on Monday which is bringing lots of excitement to the high school. Halloween always brings excitement to the elementary. Only the Kindergartners wear costumes. They parade around the school in the afternoon. The rest of the student body should be divided into black and orange for Halloween or maroon and gold to support our soccer girls.
I'll be busy catching up on my grading and working on report cards for my twelve classes of students.
Read Last Week
Flashfall by Jenny Moyer was the first in a science fiction series that reminded me a lot of The Hunger Games. This one is for fans of dystopias. My review will be posted on Nov. 10.
The Whizbang Machine by Danielle A. Vann was a fantasy adventure that had real problems with voice. The story was mostly entertaining but I couldn't believe the narrator was a fifteen-year-old girl. Vocabulary, sentence length, and sentence structure all sounded like a woman in her mid-thirties with a pretentious vocabulary. My review will be posted on Nov. 12.
Gap Life by John Coy which will be released on Nov. 22.
- Their Fractured Light by Amie Kaufman
- The Girl in the Picture by Alexandra Monir (Nov. 15)
- Of Fire and Stars by Audrey Coulthurst (Nov. 22)
Want to See What I Added to My Stack Last Week?
Duels & Deception by Cindy Anstey and a bunch of bookmarks. They were advertising the fact that Swoon Reads is now three years old and publishes books in all genres. Unfortunately, I already had this ARC but a new book bag is always nice.
You can check Inside of a Dog (my other blog) to see what adult books I read, reviewed, and plan to read.
