It's Monday, What Are You Reading? August 17, 2015

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

I took a bit of a blogging break for the last few weeks to relax a bit with family. I was able to read quite a few books. I won't list them all, but here are the highlights.
Click on the book covers to read more about them.

Such a sweet wordless picture book.

A moving story of a family forced to sell many of their belongings as they move into an apartment due to financial struggles. 

Loved this middle grade novel. Part fantasy, part historical fiction. 

Halfway through, I did not think I would like this book, but I am glad I stuck with it. It is extremely well-written. Betters for grade 6+ in my opinion.

New middle grade fiction from a well-respected educator/author. Review to come.

  7. Circus Mirandus was such fun to read! Float seems to be the PB of the day - I'll have to check it out!

  8. I still have not read The Greenglass House, maybe someday, Gigi. The new one, Zack Delacruz, is on my list, too. I shared Float today too, and loved Yard Sale & Circus Mirandus. Lots of good books you've shared today. Thank you.
