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!
I will be reading (and hopefully reviewing) LOTS of PD books this summer as part of the National Writing Project AND just because I want to. 🙂 These were 2 gems that I read this past week as part of my professional reading withthe NWP. We have to read and complete 8 annotated bibliographies in 4 weeks, and if my math is right I am right on target!
Gossamer by Lois Lowry was DIFFERENT AND UNIQUE. I ended up really liking it even though I wasn’t sure about it since this is not my usual genre that I would choose to read. It’s fantasy. Here’s a review from goodreads (Maria):
I absolutely loved this book. The idea of “bestowing memories” from possessions was intriguing to me. Made me think about what possessions I have and what memories could be bestowed from them. I highly recommend this book!
Are you intrigued? 🙂
And finally. Finally, I listened to my 2nd audio book in my entire life and LOVED THIS ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was so easy to listen to and very entertaining since Ellen herself was the narrator. VERY ENTERTAINING! 🙂 Like snicker out loud entertaining.
I have now started Hold Fast by Blue Bailliett, a middle grade novel. Liking it but mad at the dad right now. Hope there’s a good explanation……….
What are your reading? Anything I would like?
