It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

This is my first Monday post from this new blog.  If this is your first time here-welcome!  This blog is where I will review any and all children's or young adult books I read, and I will try to post teacher resources for the books when they exist on the web.

My week was very productive-which is good considering how much reading I still have to do for my children's literature class.  I read:

Baby Be-Bop, by Francesca Lia Block
Speak, by Laurie Halse Anderson
The Perks of Being a Wallflower, by Stephen Chbosky
Luna, by Julie Anne Peters
The God Box, by Alex Sanchez
The Graveyard Book, by Neil Gaiman

Reviews for all of the above titles can be found on this blog.  I didn't get to any adult books this week, but if you want to check out my adult book reviews you can find them at Book Addict Reviews.

This week I need to read:

The View from Saturday, by E.L. Konigsburg
The Magician's Elephant, by Kate DiCamillo
Rainbow Boys, by Alex Sanchez
Almost Perfect, by Brian Kacher
Weetzie Bat, by Francesca Lia Block
Percy Jackson:  The Lightning Thief, by Rick Riordan


  1. Last week was a good week for you.. Hope you enjoy this week lot..


  2. You had a very productive week. I found Speak to be incredibly moving. I liked The View from Saturday and The Lightning Thief too. Thanks for reminding me that I have The Magician's Elephant somewhere in my TBR pile too. Here is my Monday Report. Happy reading!

  3. Oh I hope you LOVE Weetzie Bat. Francesca Lia Block is one of my favorite writers and she certainly has a style that is unique! Enjoy your week of reading!
