IMWAYR: June 5, 2017

Weekly Blog Post: It’s Monday, What Are You Reading?

Here’s the weekly reflection for IMWAYR hosted by the Book Date.

Books Finished

  • The Dragons of Blueland by Ruth Stiles Gannett: I have been reading this three book series to my daughter every evening for the past two weeks. We have completed the series once and are halfway through our second reading. It is her first chapter book, and I couldn’t be more proud of my growing reader.
  • The False Prince by Jennifer A Nielsen: I have quickly become a huge Jennifer Nielsen fan. I loved A Night Divided and now I have finished this great book and am looking for more of her books to add to my pile. This is a great fantasy novel that will keep you guessing and on the edge of your seat.
  • The Book Whisperer by Donalyn Miller: If you are a reading teacher, or any teacher really, or in education, or have a strong belief in reading (isn’t that why you are blogging about reading?) then you HAVE TO READ this book. I have highlighted so much and cannot wait to start my new school year with some of her tips.
  • All the Pretty Things: The Story of a Southern Girl Who Went Through Fire to Find A Way Home by Edie Wadsworth: What a powerful and heartbreaking memoir. This was a quick read and I highly recommend.

Currently Reading

  • Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow
  • Cinder by Marissa Meyer (audiobook)
  • A People’s History of the United States by Howard Zinn
  • A Natural History of Dragons by Marie Brennan

    I think I’m going to get A Natural History of dragons. I’ve been wanting to read that series for a while but wasn’t sure, but I’ve seen some nice reviews of the last book now and they’ve convinced me. 🙂 They do look fun.

    Happy Monday and have a great week.

      So far I am enjoying it! I had never heard of it and I honestly only checked it out for the cover and title! I am glad to know it’s a series. Happy reading to you! I can’t wait to hear if you like it too.

    Congrats to your little reader (and to you for bringing her there)! My daughter is four, but she is determined to listen to the big chapter books that her older brother loves.

    How is Hamilton going for you? I read it last year and thought it was really interesting (but long!).

      Thank you! My daughter is four and is pretty adamant she gets to read my library books! She treats them nicely, so it’s okay. This series is the first that she listens to and can tell me parts of the story the next day. I am pretty excited! Hamilton is going okay, I have listened to it as an audiobook several years ago, so I don’t remember anything, and have been reading this since February. I’ll get there! I am enjoying it though and can’t wait to read more books on the founding fathers.
      Happy reading to you!
