It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 6/30/14
 It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is an opportunity for everyone to share their book journeys: where we've been for the week and where we plan to go next. To learn more about It's Monday! What Are You Reading? with a kidlit focus, jump over to Jen Vincent's blog, Teach Mentor Texts, and Kellee Moye's blog, Unleashing Readers.

I'm baaaaack....
The second half of the school year proved to be crazy (and professionally rewarding) and the result was the blog taking a back seat. Truth be told, I missed my blog and so I'm happy to be back in the blog saddle. 
I've shifted things a tad bit and will post a recap of what Maddie and I are reading together on a blogpost for Five on Friday
This past week I finished The Real Boy by Ann Ursu. If you have not read it then you MUST. 

The Real Boy
I am not sure why it took me so long to get my hands on Artemis Fowl, well the audio book, any way. I'm nearly finished and am actually looking for any reason to run errands so that I can listen to it. It is not a book I tend to read but the audio is amazing and I love it. Once I finish Artemis Fowl, I've already checked out Time Stops for No Mouse from the public library. 
Artemis Fowl (Artemis Fowl, #1)
Time Stops for No Mouse (The Hermux Tantamoq Adventures, #1)
 Here's what I've got in my stack for the week ahead:

The Camping Trip That Changed America
La Princesa Dragon/the Loathsome Dragon (Cuadrada)
The Favorite Daughter
The Center of Everything
My professional read for the week comes from a series that is popular in my school district. 
Navigating Achievement for Struggling Students with the Common Core State Standards
What are you reading this week?

  1. Welcome back to the blogging world, Mrs Becker. I've been meaning to read The Real Boy - sounds like a real beautiful novel. I featured My Favorite Daughter just a few weeks back, one of my favourite Allen Say picturebooks. :)
