It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 8/5/13

Inspired by my Twitter Pal, Jen, this post is about what I read this past week and what I plan on reading in the week ahead. Like Jen and others, on Mondays my post will be in the form of meme. Jump over to Jen's blog, Teach Mentor Texts, to learn more about It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 

It's been a couple weeks since I've posted about It's Monday! What Are You Reading? due to vacation travel, family time, & intermittent internet access. This doesn't mean I haven't been reading. I have been...maybe not as much as I had wanted to, but I still packed my suitcases & carry-ons with books for Maddie and me. I'm only going to post what was read this past week and not for the three weeks that I haven't posted (that might be a bit overwhelming). Without further ado...

Here's what Maddie and I read last week:
