It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

Mon Reading Button PB to YA

 

 

Holidays offer a wonderful chance to read,  and read I did over the past few weeks – from picture books to MG, YA and adult books. 

Here are a few of my favourites:

Squirrel’s New Year’s Resolution: and “Substitute Groundhog” – by Pat Miller

 

7987388 

 

 

850197

 

               

 

 

 

 

 

Pat was at the retreat I attended and I loved her workshop as well as her writing. Both stories are well written and fun. Great additions to a classroom as well for special holidays. I wish I had had them when I was teaching!

 

An Egg is Quiet” by Dianna Aston

 

125422

Dianna was at the retreat as well and her words and writing sparkled. loved this book.

 

The Quiet Book” and “The Loud Book” – Deborah Underwood

9211983   6855239                  

                          

What fun books – simple concept but so well done.

 

The Tiger Rising” by Kate DiCamillo

37187

This was a quick, but engrossing read. I was drawn into the story and the lives of Rob and Sistine. Enjoyed it  – so poignant – like all of Kate’s books I’ve read. 

 

Four” – Veronica Roth

18080920

I enjoyed the Divergent series, so wanted to read more about Four. Kept my interest.

  1. Hi Bev, your retreat sounds awesome. What great mentors you had. I love The egg is quiet, The Quiet Book. I haven’t read Four yet-intriguing, but will wait a while-too many others to read first. I just found Tiger Rising at school in a giveaway bin-brought it home. And now you’re recommending it-terrific! Thanks for all!

    • The retreat was lovely and inspiring. IT was wonderful meeting so many authors. I had just seen the movie Divergent and then saw the book. I am still buying too many books but there are just so many I want to read.
