I can hardly believe that it is Monday again!! I hit the ground running last week because I was coming back from Spring Break and having to make sure everything was ready for Book Fair to start on Thursday. To say the least, I've been stressed. As a result, I haven't been doing a lot of reading. I've been doing a lot of rereading. See my post below. It's because of the Book Fair that I'm doing most of my rereading. Good thing that I like all the books that I'm rereading.
I'm still rereading The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan. I'm rereading this in preparation for the third in the series which is published on May 1st. I also want to read One Crazy Summer by Rita Williams-Garcia. It's a historical fiction book that sounded interesting. Click here to go to a description of the book on www.goodreads.com. (If you haven't found Goodreads yet, it is a wonderful site and you should check it out.)
Last week I read No Passengers Beyond This Point by Gennifer Choldenko and Glory Be by Augusta Scattergood. I enjoyed both for different reasons. No Passengers Beyond This Point is one of the few books that I can say, that the ending took me totally by surprise! I like when a book can still surprise me. Glory Be is a great introduction to the racial issues that our country has had to deal with. It touches on the issues without getting too in depth or to vivid.
Happy Reading! Feel free to share what you are reading or your thoughts about the few books.
Hopefully this week will be calmer, so that I can post a little bit more.
