It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 4/16/18

16 Apr

I’m slowly getting back into the groove! I’m really trying to do some higher quality workouts when I’m at the gym which means that I’m not riding a stationary bike and reading a book because although I’m working out, I know I should be doing better. So, I’m back to weight training and starting to get back into running over the past few weeks and as much as I hate it (and I really do), I’m beginning to feel stronger and healthier. Sadly, that means I don’t get a chance to read in the morning too often, so it’s left to the evening and weekends. But, I did get to finish The Serpent’s Secret by Sayantani Dasgupta and I also read The Prince and the Dressmaker by Jen Wang. I read a few short stories from Dreadful Young Ladies and Other Stories by Kelly Barnhill and then I put them aside. I never feel like I’m getting what I should out of short stories – I always feel like I’m in high school English class not quite “getting it” in terms of short stories. I try them every once in a while, but they’re not my favorite format. I’m going to finish up A Possibility of Whales by Karen Rivers today and hope to get a few more books read this week!

Right now, at my desk I’ve got:

  • Forever or a Long, Long Time by Caela Carter
  • The Art of the Swap by Kristine Asselin and Jen Malone
  • The Parker Inheritance by Varian Johnson


Join Jen from Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee and Ricki from Unleashing Readers and share all of the reading you have done over the week from picture books to young adult novels. Follow the links to read about all of the amazing books the #IMWAYR
