It's Monday, What Are You Reading-September 28, 2015

Please visit the amazing blogs: Teach Mentor Texts and Unleashing Readers who host this terrific meme each week.

Here is my reading from last week. 
Click on the book titles to learn more about them. 

Very cute, short picture book about what it might be like to do household chores after shrinking down to a few inches.  Fun for grades PK-2. 

Kids will love the big, collage-style pictures in this book. Can the book-eating zombie change his ways and read books instead of eating them? Grades K-2. 

A very powerful novel in verse for middle schoolers. 

A really interesting book about what it might be like to live on Mars. Good for late elementary or middle school. Review to come.

Currently Reading

And a boatload of research articles for my research project on goal setting. 

What are YOU reading friends?


  1. I haven't read George Shrinks in a really long time! It is cute.
    I bought Underground Abductor, would love to get to it at some point :)

  2. I hope you will be sharing some of your research findings! I always love your perspective on things. Happy Reading!

  3. Some of my students pick up the Hazardous Tales, but they are really challenging, and I don't think that some of them actually read them. Combine that with the fact that they fall apart if someone looks at them, and I don't have a good reason to buy them.

  4. I'll look forward to what you share about goal setting, Gigi. Thanks for all of these, most interested in the Buzz Aldrin book. I'm excited to see The Martian, wonder if we will ever get to Mars? Have a good week!

  5. Nice assortment of books. Came see my week here. Happy reading!

  6. A book about a book-eating zombie looks like a fun choice for October - spooky but not too scary for smaller readers. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Yikes - I haven't read any of these - they're all new to me! I've never read any of the Nathan Hale books - I know I should! I Want to Eat Your Books looks funny. ;-)

  8. I am sure the Mars books would be all the rage now that The Martian is being shown in the cinemas and the new discovery about water on Mars :) Great to see the new William Joyce title - have you heard of The Shrinking of Treehorn by Florence Parry Heide and illustrations by Edward Gorey? That one is a keeper too.
