Here's a look at what I read last week...
This novel eye-opening shows how war affects families on both sides of the conflict. I won't be putting in my classroom library but would recommend it for a middle school or high school reader who enjoys realistic fiction.
This story is filled with numerous action packed battles and many different superpowers ranging from telekinesis to shape shifting. The Cloak Society is an enjoyable twist on the Superhero plot line. I enjoyed the friendship that builds between Alex and Kirby. I loved it and can't wait to share it with students!
Barbara O'Connor has created another adventure for middle grade readers that includes a fantastic cast of characters in a quiet little southern town. Loved it from beginning to end! As with many of her books that would make a fantastic read aloud.
Lauren Oliver just gets better with each book she writes! Her newest title is a wonderful "fairy tale" type story complete with adventure, vivid imagery, and beautiful writing. At the risk of sounding redundant...I loved it!
Books I plan to finish this week...
I started this one on Thursday but with the tragic event on Friday, I had to put it aside.My heart just couldn't take anymore. I'm hoping to get back to it this week and finish.
Books that are on deck for this week...
So there you have it...another week of reading is in the books! Have a fantastic week among the pages!
