It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

20 Jul

This week I was able to get back on track with three books I read!  The first book I read was called The Entirely True Story of the Unbelievable FIB by Adam Shaughnessy.  A great story for those kids looking for mythology books – a specific focus on Norse mythology as Odin, Thor, and others are found wrecking havoc in a small town.  The next book I read was a quick read, but with a much better plot than I expected!  Upside Down Magic by Sarah Mlynowski, Lauren Myracle, and Emily Jenkins is a cute story about what happens when your magic doesn’t work the way you expect it to and the unexpected results!  And finally, I read The Doldrums by Nicholas Gannon a story about adventure, imagination, but mostly about friendship.  It’s an engaging story that I really enjoyed reading and for 350 pages, it still felt like a quick read.  I’d love to see it again when it’s published because it will have full-color illustrations that my copy was missing.

I’m working my way through the ARCs I picked up at BEA and hoping to get to most of them before they actually get published and before the fall lists come out for Newbery predictions.  Overall, writing up this blog entry each week really motivates me to make sure I’m reading something every week to report!  It’s a great motivator!
