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 Books:
This is going to be somewhat of a drive-by post, as it is the last full week i.e. busiest week) of the school year. Glad I enjoyed a number of books last week to get me relaxed and ready for the long haul of this one….
Thirteen Chairs by Dave Shelton is a full of horror stories within a story. Middle grade because the stories are fairly mild. 3 stars. This book counts for my Horror Challenge 2016.
Crenshaw by Katherine Applegate is a story of a boy and his imaginary friend (a giant cat) who comes when he is needed most. 4 stars.
The Thing about Jellyfish by Ali Benjamin is a beautiful realistic fiction book about a preteen dealing with the death of her (former) best friend. Don’t miss this one. 4 stars.
West of the Moon by Margi Preus blends the story of a young girl sold to a goat-herder with Norse folk tales. 3 stars.
Locke & Key, Vol. 1 by Joe Hill is a horror/dark fantasy graphic novel suitable for high school students and adults. 4 stars. This book counts for my Horror Challenge 2016. This book also counts for my Panels Challenge 2016 (category 3).
