Here we are with another chance to share wonderful books with each other thanks to Jen and Kellee over at Teach Mentor Texts and Sheila over at Book Journey who both sponsor this great meme each week for young adult/children and adult respectively!
The only reason I labeled See You At Harry’s as young adult is because of the issue of homosexuality. It’s actually written for 10 and above. I LOVED the story, but I teach in a VERY VERY conservative area so I won’t be able to recommend it to my 5/6 graders because of this. Boo.
Acutally, I liked ALL of the books I read this week. My least favorite one was Pinned, and here’s why. It’s not because of the plot. I mean it centered around 2 teens-both with disabilities. One with a reading disability-the other one wheelchair bound. Those are some deep and very real issues. The thing that kept me from loving it was that the dialect of one of the character’s was very difficult to read. I’m not saying the author was wrong to write it that way-it was just hard for me to read and follow. 🙂
Love?Maybe was the cutest and most lighthearted for the week. Like really cute and lighthearted. Just what I needed after a couple of holocaust books.
I just started Waiting on Normal.
After this one I’ve got to jump on my Rereads for April that I’ve committed to doing-Where the Wild Things Are, Charlotte’s Web, and The Outsiders!
Of course, this upcoming week is another crazy one-didn’t I just say that last week????? 🙂 Honor’s Banquet, Athletic Banquet, PTO meeting, Track Sectionals, and visiting Munford High School on Friday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What are you reading??
