This meme was started by Sheila at Book Journey and the kids' version borrowed from the wonderful ladies at Teach Mentor Texts.
I had great intentions of posting midweek last week, but life got in the way. I had a very close family friend pass away. So that kind of took over my life and I didn't do a lot of reading.
Though I did get some reading done this week. I was so excited to get my copies of The Secret of the Fortune Wookiee by Tom Angleberger! He has got another winner on his hands. I LOVED this book!! Once again we meet up with the gang from McQuarrie Middle School, except Dwight and Origami Yoda are not there. Everyone wonders what to do without them. After a while Fortune Wookiee makes an appearance and begins to give advice. If you want to find out more, you have to read the book. I think this is my favorite out of the three. If you have not read this series, run don't walk to the library or bookstore and check it!
I also read the newest Junie B. book, Turkeys We Have Loved and Eaten (and Other Thankful Stuff) by Barbara Park. I have to admit that this is the first Junie B. book I have ever read! I can see why it appeals to kids, but it was not a favorite of mine. I'm not going to run out and read more.
Giants Beware! by Rafael Rosado was a book that I had on hold for quite a while. It finally came in this week. I was thrilled with this book and it was worth the wait. I really liked how main character was a female. This book is going on order for this coming year!
When I went to the library I also saw sitting on the shelf Same Sun Here by Silas House and Neela Vaswani. I have been waiting to read this book ever since I read Jen Vincent's and Colby Sharp's blog posts about the book. Click here to go to Part One of their blog posts. I am only on page 78 and I am loving this book!! I don't want to put it down!
