It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Another blogger suggested a weekly reading list, and it sounds like a good idea, so here's my first one.

Last week, I finished:
  • Plum Spooky by Janet Evanovich (review will be posted this week)
  • Things That Are by Andrew Clements
  • Things Hoped For by Andrew Clements (both sequels to Things Not Seen - reviews to come on my Great Books for Kids and Teens blog)
I just started The House at Sugar Beach: In Search of a Lost African Childhood by Helene Cooper, a memoir that my husband gave me for Christmas. It's very interesting so far.

And I hope to start an audio book this week, too: The Mysterious Edge of the Heroic World by E.L. Konigsburg, a classic kid's author.

So, what are YOU reading this week?

    Oh man, you are already at Plum Spooky! I so want to get caught up with this series...totally love it!

  2. I love it, too! And Plum Spooky opens with a monkey, so you justknow it's going to be fun!


  3. Last week I read:
    Sunday - Running with the Buffaloes
    Monday - Autobiography of a Fat Bride
    Tuesday - Father of the Bride
    Wednesday - Little House on Rocky Ridge
    Thursday - Homesick; A Memoir
    Friday - Fanny and Sue
    Saturday - Born on a Blue Day

  4. Wow, Angie - a book a day? I'm impressed! And I see that A Book a Day is also the name of your blog...I'll have to check that out.


  5. I'm taking forever reading PUBLIC ENEMIES by Bryan Burrough. I read A Room on Lorelei Street, by Mary E. Pearson. I'm a quarter into What I Saw and How I Lied by Judy Blundell. (The last two books, Erin handed me and told me I should read.) I've only read one Andrew Clements book, No Talking. I loved it. I should read some more - which are your favorites?

  6. Hi, Sherry -

    I've also recently requested some books at the library based on Erin's recommendations - I really enjoy her book blog.

    Most of Andrew Clements' books are for younger kids - about 3rd through 5th grades - but we all really enjoyed Things Not Seen (see the review here on my blog), his first book intended for middle-grade/teen readers. And I liked his two sequels as well - I'll review those here soon.

    Hope you're feeling better!
