#IMWAYR March 12, 2017

Each week I try to join Jen from Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee and Ricki from Unleashing Readers to share all of the reading I've done over the week from picture books to young adult novels. It's #IMWAYR.

Here are the books I read this week:

Middle Grade

I'm actually not sure if the March series is middle grade or YA. What I do know is it is a powerfully written graphic novel about the civil rights movement written from the point of view of Congressman John Lewis. As soon as I finished it I handed it to my sixth grader.

Young Adult

Maddy has spent her whole life in a bubble because of a life threatening allergy, yet she never complained - until Olly moved next door. A well told story about discovering what it means to be alive.


If you like my reading choices, you can check out all the books I've read on Goodreads and please leave a comment below. It's Monday, what have you been reading?


  1. Everything everything was cock full of surprises for me. I have The Sun Is Also a Star to get to soon. I just hope it is as good. I am looking forward to it. March is on my must read in 2016 so I know I have that to look forward to.

  2. I have to read March soon. Every Thing, Every Thing sounds interesting. I'll have to check it out. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I really need to pull my March set off my book shelf and read it! I'm on hold for Everything, Everything at the library and can't wait to read that one. I have heard that The Sun is Also a Star is really good as well.

  4. Love the March books, and still need to read Every Thing, Every Thing. So many have praised it! Thanks!

  5. I read Everything Everything and it didn't really do anything for me, but I wasn't a huge fan of YA when I was a Young Adult, so I don't think I'm the right audience for this kind of story. ;-)

  6. I've read the entire March trilogy just a few weeks ago - so very powerful and moving.


You know you have something to say...
