I had a great reading week. Vacation and being in the car for 25+ hours helped! I've read some great books lately. I know I'll have far less time to read with school starting but glad to have read the books I did. Here are some of the great books I've read lately--love and recommend them all. Every single one was fabulous!
I just don't fit enough enough adult fiction so I made sure to do that on vacation last week. Both were great.
Where'd You Go, Bernadette: A Novel
In anticipation of Global Read Aloud in October, I reread
The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane
WOW! I have always loved this book but haven't read it for probably 6 years. Loved it even more this time and am excited to share it with kids as part of Global Read Aloud.
A heartbreaking book set in the Lower Ninth Ward during Hurricane Katrina. Love the main character of this one. A Must Read!
Upside Down in the Middle of Nowhere
A novel in verse that is set in Guatemala during the civil war. A great book--I think this is probably intended for middle school.
Caminar by Skila Brown
A graphic novel (coming out in September) that I loved. Another Must Read!
El Deafo by Cece Bell
