It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 6/13/16

13 Jun

26026063.jpgSo, as I mentioned two weeks ago, my mom was visiting last weekend and I was so busy with her, I forgot to post an update last Monday, so here’s my two week update.  I read The Firefly Code by Megan Frazer Blakemore which was really interesting – I believe another author or reviewer described it as similar to The Giver and I definitely saw that connection.  I read Marked by Laura Williams McCaffrey, a dystopian YA novel that confused me a little too much for me to enjoy.  It wasn’t absolutely amazing, but I hadn’t read any dystopian YA for awhile, so it was good to jump back into the genre again.  I also read Wolf Hollow by Lauren Wolk, a historical fiction book about bullying and consequences.  One of the most beautiful covers on a book, I’ve ever seen – gold metallic script from quote in the story surrounding a girl in silhouette, but get ready to shed a few tears reading it.  Finally, I read Ms. Bixby’s Last Day by John David Anderson which feels a lot like Because of Mr. Terupt and Wonder with multiple narrators and a teacher that makes a difference.  It was well done, but I really didn’t need two sad books back to back, so I’m hoping to lighten my reading up for this upcoming week.

This week, I grabbed a few more off my ARC shelf to keep it moving as the publication dates for many of these books is looming:

  • The Cresswell Plot by Eliza Wass
  • The Gallery by Laura Marx Fitzgerald
  • Genius: The Game by Leopoldo Gout
