It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 5/30/16

30 May

23203254I’m so proud of myself this week!  I read all three books that were on my list from last week.  Nothing But Trouble by Jacqueline Davies is a fun story about two girls who couldn’t be more opposite and yet become friends and co-conspirators to increase class spirit in a small town with a school falling down around the sixth grade class.  Behind the Canvas by Alexander Vance felt a little too long for me – and I was really excited to read it!  Claudia learns that there exists an entire world behind the canvas of her favorite paintings that she must enter in order to save her new friend, Pim.  I really enjoyed Waiting for Augusta by Jessica Lawson.  Benjamin’s golf-loving father died last month and ever since Benjamin has felt a lump in his throat that he’s convinced is a golf ball.  When he begins hearing his father’s voice he knows what he has to do – scatter his father’s ashes in Augusta at the Master’s Tournament.  Benjamin’s journey as he begins to heal is a touching story that I truly enjoyed.

This week might be interesting as far as reading goes – I have off on Monday and Tuesday and although I’d love to spend both days reading, I’ll most likely be trying to get a lot of things done around the house because I never seem to have enough time during the work week!  My mom is also coming to visit this coming weekend which means I’ll be spending my quality time with her and most likely will have little time to read.  Nevertheless, I have a few books, I’d love to read this week, including:

  • Wolf Hollow by Lauren Wolk
  • The Firefly Code by Megan Frazer Blackemore
  • Marked by Laura Williams McCaffrey
