It’s Monday! What are you Reading?


It’s Monday – what are you reading?? This is a fun meme at “Teach Mentor Texts“.

On our trip to Montreal last week I was able to read

A Snicker of Magic” by Natalie Lloyd.


There has been so much discussion about this book. I did enjoy it, but then I love fantasy and sci-fi. This had a touch of that.Loved that Felicity was able to overcome her fear and perform. 


“The Granny Game” by Beverly Lewis


This was a quick, fun read. Having written stories with grandmothers I am drawn to stories about them. This one didn’t disappoint. I enjoyed the two different grandmothers and their interactions with the children.


Today, while at the school where I tutor for “Strong Start”, I was able to read 2 picture books:

The Secret of the Village Fool”  by Rebecca Upjohn


It was excellent – a retelling of the story of how Anton Suchinski saved 6 Jews during WWII, in Poland. As Anton said,

Life is precious. No one should take it away.”


Brief Thief” by Michael Escoffier


Completely different – funny, rude and unexpected. Boys will especially love it!

    • I had read your review before i read the book Linda. Wasn’t sure how I would find the book. But I think reading during the drive and knowing we were going for a funeral, made me delve into the story to forget. So I enjoyed it.
