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!
This past week I snuck in an EASY book-a Jigsaw Jones book-The Case of the Sneaker Sneak. It was cute. It was an easy read. 🙂
I also read (for the first time) a Hank the Cowdog book. O to the M to the G! It was so funny! It’s written from Hank’s (you know the cowdog) point of view. I’m wondering if I liked it so much because WE have cowdogs??!!! But a couple of people on twitter agreed with me on how hilarious these books are. There are 50 of them (I think). Maybe I should put that on my bucket list-to read all 50? 🙂 I actually laughed out loud SEVERAL times-much to the dismay of my husband. 🙂
Here Today by Ann Martin
It took me a few pages to get into this one, but then I became interested in it just because I wanted to find out what Doris, the mother, was going to do.
Close to Famous-Joan Bauer
Loved this one. Loved Foster, the main character! A book with real life problems and real life solutions. 🙂
Dairy Queen-Catherine Murdock
5 of 5 stars! Can’t wait to read the next 2 in this trilogy. DJ, the main character, is hilarious!!! See my book review on this one here:

What it looks like for the upcoming week:
Well, seeing as I have joined the #summerthrowdown reading challenge between teachers and librarians, I have A LOT of reading planned!!! 🙂 Just a friendly little competition. (wink-wink)
You can read all about it and sign up (because you know you want to!) at Jillian’s blog Heise Reads & Recommends. I think the last count was almost 150 people signed up. The twitter hashtag is #summerthrowdown. You need to declare a team-Teacher or Librarian. And the game is on! 🙂
So far I have picked out 3 books for Monday(will I be able to read ALL of them on Monday???):
Out of the Dust-Karen Hesse
Sahara Special-Esme Codell
There’s a Boy in the Girl’s Bathroom-Louis Sachar
And if you are wondering why I am planning to read “older” titles-it’s because I have had so many books for awhile that I have never gotten around to reading, and I NEED to get caught up!
So there you have it! My life in books.
What are you reading?
