It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 3/28/16

28 Mar

I feel like I’ve been in a reading rut, but I finally got some quality reading done this week and have a few books to hit up before PLA next week!  This week I read – Zombie Baseball Beatdown by Paolo Bacigalupi, a crazy story about zombie cows, small town life, and a really great look into immigration and undocumented workers.  I also read This One Summer by Mariko Tamaki – a graphic novel that won a 2015 Caldecott Honor award (although it’s definitely YA) and received some kick back for the decision.  To be clear, the Caldecott Award (like the Newbery) can be chosen from any book published by an American illustrator for children ages 0 – 18.  I also read Secret Coders by Gene Luen Yang another graphic novel, but this one is for younger children and has the beginning steps of coding woven into the story.  And finally, Alistair Grim’s Odditorium a fantasty/adventure novel that is a lot of fun to read.

I hope to read this week:

  • Pax by Sara Pennypacker
  • Radioactive!: How Irene Curie and Lise Meitner Revolutionized Science and Changed the World by Winifred Conkling
  • Far From Fair by Elana K. Arnold

    I started The Throne of Glass series yesterday and I have Pax and Lady Midnight in my stack.

      I LOVED the first book in Throne of Glass , but I don’t get to read as much YA as I’d like!

    I’m reading an adult book for once, haha – Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert, about “living a creative life beyond fear.” It’s pretty interesting so far.
