It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

This meme was started by Sheila at Book Journey. The kid's version was started by Jen at Teach Mentor Text and Kellee at Unleashing Readers.

This has been a VERY slow week of reading! It is now that busy busy time of year and I'm just struggling to keep my head above water. I did fit in a few books.

17814086I finished one chapter book, When Audrey Met Alice by Rebecca Behrens. Click her for a summary on Goodreads. This was such a fun read, once I started it I had to finish reading it. Audrey Rhodes has moved into the White House or 1600 as she calls it. She is not truly sure how she fits into this new political arena that is now her life. Audrey is adrift until she finds a diary that belonged to Alice Roosevelt. Audrey finds all of Alice's antics entertaining, but also helpful because she finds someone else who has felt the same way she is feeling right now. this book has made me want to find out more about Alice Roosevelt. She lived her life by her own terms, which makes me interested to learn more about her.

6796462I also read the graphic novel Gabby & Gator by James Burks. Click here for a summary on Goodreads. I really enjoyed this book a lot. I identified with Gabby because I'm always looking to try and find people who will accept me for me and find a friend. I finding stories that show great examples of being a good friend because so many students don't know how to be a good friend. This one is very hard to keep on my shelf, it's very loved.

Later in the week I'm going to be reviewing the books below, because I can hear my bed calling my name!

Also, I have a guest post about some of my favorite books of 2014 (and a few from 2013) on the Elementary Librarian Blog. If you haven't been to her site, it is a wonderful resource for Library Media Specialists!

Happy Reading!!
