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. #IMWAYR
This week I enjoyed two very different picture books about bears, one middle grade book, and two young adult novels. I have to say more about each of these books because they were all so wonderful. Three of the books; Ida, Always, Wolf Hollow, and A Time to Dance, need to be read near tissues.
Here's what I've read this week:
An adorable book about forgiveness.
A beautiful story about friendship and dealing with loss.
A historical fiction novel about trust, bravery, and friendship.
This beautiful story, written in verse, is a story about hope and triumph. It is listed as young adult, but I think middle graders would enjoy it as well.
A high fantasy about facing prejudice and overcoming obstacles in an imagined world.
That means to date this summer I have read 3/10 picture books, 8/10 middle grade, 4 YA, and 1 professional book. I also started beta reading a wonderful novel by one of my critique partners that I hope to see in stores someday. The goal I am falling short on is writing, so my hope is to get back to that this week.
If you like my reading choices, you can check out all the books I've read on Goodreads and please leave me a comment below. I'm still looking for more picture book suggestions so I can read a #bookaday to my 3rd graders in the fall.
