It's Monday! What are you Reading is a meme began by Sheila at Book Journeys as a way to share what you read and/or reviewed the previous week and what is in store for the upcoming week. It's also a great chance to see what others are reading. I first learned about it from Jen at Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee and Ricki of Unleashing Readers and have become a regular linked up blog. Thanks #PLN
Happy St. Patrick's Day and may the luck of the Irish be with you!
Here is a four leaf clover I picked just for you.
Want to get in the spirit of the day? Check out this lovely little book about Curious George and St. Patrick's Day.
Loved it, but got started slowly with A Snicker of Magic. Obviously I am not a "word catcher" and struggled with visualizing how this worked but I loved the Pickle and Harness families. All the family members were so likable in their own quirky way. Cleo was my favorite tough old broad. The friendship with Jonah was also terrific. What a great kid. I wanted to hang out with him too. It was sad to me though that Roger Pickle did not come back into their lives. I held onto hope. I just adore the catch phrase from this book. "Hope's coming down."
I am still plugging away listening to Fire, boy it's long and I don't have to drive too far each day. In fact, I had to swap the audiobook out for a replacement due to a badly scratched CD.
I can hardly wait to tap into these next reads on deck. I bought The Testing through my recent book fair. It is on the Texas Lone Star list. I have been wanting to read it for a long time. I know I will enjoy The Coldest Girl in Coldtown. That Holly Black is a gifted writer.
I hope you are having a lovely reading week and if you are not, just remember...
Hope's coming down!
