Summer Reading Wrap Up

I think I did fairly well in my Book -A-Day attempt. As school starts next week my reading will be shifting to essays and papers written by 12-14 year olds!

I am always on the look out for good books to recommend to my students and to just plain enjoy myself and I am participating in The Contemps challenge (click on the badge to the right to learn more) and I'm hoping to do more blogging about books, particularly YA and Middle Grade books. Therefore, I will still be doing much reading!

So here are the books that I've read in the past two weeks:

Picture Books
Dog Loves Books by Louise Yates
Library Mouse by Daniel Kirk
Library Mouse: A Friend's Tale by Daniel Kirk
Whiteblack the Penguin Sees the World by Margret and H.A. Rey

YA Novels
Wicked Girls by Stephanie Hemphill (novel in verse)
Diamond Willow by Helen Frost (novel in verse)
Shakespeare Bats Cleanup by Ron Koertge (novel in verse)
Shakespeare Makes the Playoffs by Ron Koertge (novel in verse)
Graceling by Kristin Cashore

YA NonFiction
The Journey That Saved Curious George: The True Wartime Escape of Margret and H.A. Reys by Louise Borden

Since school let out in June I have read 70 books. Not bad.

I'm in the middle of Charles and Emma: The Darwins' Leap of Faith by Deborah Heiligman and City of Bones by Cassandra Clare.
