It’s Monday! And time to ask each other, “What are You Reading?” To see what others are reading, stop by Teach Mentor Texts where other bloggers have linked their posts to share what they’ve been reading.
I have been trying to stay on top of the holds that are coming available at the public library through Overdrive and the stack of real books I need to read. There are just not enough hours in the day to keep up! I did use my car time for the last two weeks to listen to two great titles from the Summer Synch audiobook list. I read All Our Yesterdays last spring and really loved it. It was one of the titles available this summer, so it’s the first one I started when I had a long car drive. It was just as good as an audio book. I worried it wouldn’t be quite as captivating, because I think it’s a quicker reveal of the twist at the beginning of the book when it’s read aloud.
After finishing All Our Yesterdays, I switched to Code Name Verity. As all of the readers of this book know, it’s amazing. I didn’t mind any extra miles I drove or any extra traffic lights I sat through while I was listening to this one. Both narrators do a wonderful job and bring their characters to life.
I’m still in the middle of Quiet. And now I’ve added Toybox Leadership to my professional read list. Blood of Olympus and Thursdays with the Crown are the new releases I’m hoping to tackle this week. I’ve started Blood already.
I honestly wouldn’t mind a week of snow days right now! I just want to curl up with these and settle in for a dozen hours of reading!
