It's Monday November 26



It's time for my weekly roundup of reading. Big thanks, as always, to Jen and Kellee at Teach Mentor Texts for hosting this each week. Head over to their blog to check out the other posts.  





Even with Thanksgiving chaos (I had people I love in my house from Monday through Saturday), I had the time to get a few books read. I'm also working today on choosing my nominees for the Nerdies 2012 awards. Go take a peek and give your favorites of 2012 a plug. I'll put together a post later this week sharing my nominees.

Nerdy Book Club Award Nominations Post. 


Another fun thing this week - check out the hashtag #MustacheYouToRead. It is explained in loving detail by @TLT16 on her blog. I got my house guests and my sons to do pictures of our own recommendations. Those will also get posted this week.

Picture Books: 


A Rock is Lively was a contest prize from @loveofxena. It is just as beautiful as everyone has been raving. That and One Beetle Too Many will definitely be making it into a Sci Friday post in the near future. This week's Sci Friday post was a review of Invincible Microbe. Go check it out!


Science Fiction 


I finished Insignia, and Kathy (@thebrainlair) and I posted our third chat. We'll wrap up our discussion of the book this week.







Classics:

As I mentioned on a previous post, I read The Pearl so that I could chat with my son about it. How utterly depressing, though the writing had it's lovely parts. The most intriguing thing (to my geeky self) was the fact that I kept making connections between the pearl and the One Ring of Sauron. Yeah, I'm that excited about Tolkien. Anyone have their tickets for Hobbit purchased yet?







Currently Reading:

I finally got started with Unravel Me as part of the ARC tour. The pace of the story is fast and furious, though I do have some issues with Juliette.










This is a graphic novel. I'm hoping to also find a graphic novel biography of a woman in science, but no one has been able to suggest one for me yet. Any thoughts?
