It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 5/2/16

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a meme started by Book Journey. The folks over at Teach Mentor Texts and Unleashing Readers have given it a children’s/YA spin. I thought it would be a fun way to recap last week’s reading and give a sneak peek of my TBR pile.

Last Week’s Book:

goodomens

Oddly, I had never read Good Omens, and with all the hubbub about a TV adaptation coming soon, I felt it was about time. I immensely enjoyed this madcap fantasy about the Apocalypse, which is funny in clever and cheeky and very British ways. Best of all is the tone–Pratchett and Gaiman are fully aware that they are being clever and   cheeky throughout the whole thing, and they want the reader to be in on the joke. And yet, when you stop and think about what a message to take away from the book might be, it is really rather a beautiful one. Planning to steer my 13-year-old son to this one soon–no one who is a fan of clever and cheeky should wait as long as I did to read it.
