It’s Monday, April 13, 2015. What Are You Reading?

Well, readers, I am still reading/listening to The Round House by Louise Erdrich. Not that it’s a bad read, it’s very good, but coming off of a vacation where I downed three books in a week, my expectations to read more has been difficult. Back to the grind they say and I forgot how busy it gets around here.

Also, I was sooo good about returning all of my books to the library before vacay and clearing my plate of books to read but when I returned back to work, this happened…

Of course many of the books I reserved came in all at once and I was excited to find that the new books we ordered for our children’s nonfiction also arrived. I couldn’t resist and so some came home with me.

A few are going to be discussed in a future post for April’s Poetry Month for middle grade/young adult readers using verse to tell their stories (pictured):

Inside Out & Back Again – Thanhha Lai

Serafina’s Promise – Ann E. Burg

The Crossover – Kwame Alexander

Dreaming in Indian – Lisa Charleyboy & Mary Leatherdale

not pictured: Salt – Helen Frost, The Red Pencil – Andrea Davis Pinkney,

How I Discovered Poetry – Marilyn Nelson

After reading Brown Girl Dreaming last year, I’ve been on the lookout for other diverse books that use verse and poetry for younger readers. So, I am reading these as well.

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?
