It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? 4/27/15

27 Apr

I buckled down last week and got a lot of reading done!  I read Rutabaga: The Adventure Chef by Eric Colossal, I’m excited to see the published copy as the ARC was not in full color.  It was a super cute idea and I loved the recipes at the end of the book.  I also finally, finally got to The Mark of the Thief by Jennifer Nielsen.  I’m a little frustrated it’s another trilogy as I prefer a really great stand alone book, to an alright trilogy or series, but it was definitely fast-paced, adventurous and exciting and set in the Roman time period from the perspective of a young male slave.  It’s got a little magic, Roman mythology, and like I said is fairly fast-paced once you get into it.  I also read The War That Saved My Life by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley, the author of Jefferson’s Sons.  This was a book suggested by the book reviewer at the Kutztown Children’s Literature Conference and I am so glad I read it.  I really enjoyed the characters, the setting, and the storyline.  And I love when I read a book and have another reader in mind who will like it as much as I did.  And finally, I also finished Somebody on this Bus is Going to Be Famous! by J. B. Cheaney.  This was also suggested by the book reviewer and I really liked it as well.  It’s definitely interesting with each section being told from a different perspective and how it all comes together in the end.

As for this week, I’m going to be really busy working late three nights this week, so I’m hoping to get a little reading in here and there.  On my list for this week is Catch You Later, Traitor by Avi and The Terrible Two by Mac Barnett.  I also have to read Dodger and Me by Jordan Sonnenblick for a book discussion group in June.  Sonnenblick will be visiting our library, so I’ve got to catch up on his work in the next month.  I’m sure I’ll be picking up a few books here and there to fill in my reading holes.

    I just finished reading Before Tomorrowland, which is a prequel of sorts to the movie Tomorrowland that Disney is putting out soon. I thought it was pretty good but some of it was a little confusing the way it was written.

      Maybe it’ll be better once you’ve seen the movie? Here’s hoping!
