It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? 6/8/2015

8 Jun

the-great-good-summer-9781481411479_hrI got a lot read this past week and am excited about a few other books for this upcoming week!  And then, next Monday, all heck breaks loose as Summer Reading officially begins!  (I’m not quite ready yet!)  Anyway, this week I read The Detective’s Assistant by Kate Hannigan – a historical fiction story about the first female spy in the Pinkerton Agency.  I also read Lost in the Sun by Lisa Graff, a book I highly recommend.  It’s the story of a boy trying to forget a most tragic accident who is befriended by an outcast who shows him that he can move forward.  It’s a truly powerful story.  I also re-read Curveball: The Year I Lost My Grip by Jordan Sonnenblick who will be visiting our library in a few weeks.   I’ll be doing a book discussion next week on the book and needed a quick refresher.  And, I just began Nimona a graphic novel by Noelle Stevenson, per a suggestion by a librarian friend.

This week, I’ve got The Great Good Summer by Elizabeth Garton Scanlon awaiting me to read – should be pretty quick at 218 pages, as well as a Netgalley book called Piper Green and the Fairy Tree by Ellen Potter due out on August 4th.  I also have Saving Mr. Terupt by Robert W. Bunyea on Netgalley as well as Fuzzy Mud by Louis Sachar.  It’s a fairly mild week at work as we finalize our summer reading plans and make sure everything is ready for next week, so I’m hoping I can get a lot of reading done in the evenings!233953682206478023743734

    I just finished reading Are You Experienced? by Sonnenblick and The Fog Diver by Joel Ross. And I’m going to start on Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library since I haven’t read it yet! I also have to read I Am Malala for the book discussion.
