It's Monday February 4th

It's Monday - and we all know what that means, right?

 Big thanks to Jen and Kelle at Teach Mentor Texts. Head over to their blog for more great reads. 

Yes, back to work - but it's also time to share what I've read this week. Hopefully you can find something new and interesting to add to your own list!


Nathan Hale's Hazardous Tales: One Dead Spy

I loved this graphic novel! I am probably going to write up a full review. In the meantime, do check it out. It really brought history to life.

Babymouse is always a good read. This didn't rank up there as one of my favorites, but it was still fun. 
Newbery Challenge! 
Dear Mr. Henshaw was an enjoyable reread for me. I read it on Monday, after the excitement over the awards had died down a bit. 

Awards Reading! 
I kept clicking "request hold" as I watched the ALA awards. These are the books I've read so far from my hold shelf list. I also have Hand in Hand, Titantic, and Electric Ben on my "to read" pile.

Other Reads: 
I FINALLY caught up with the 5th book in the Nerdy award Middle Grade category -
One for the Murphys. Loved it!
You Are Stardust - another excellent picture book exploring deep thoughts and scientific concepts.
Pinned - for my Book Gap Challenge (sports books). I enjoyed it, but it didn't rank up there as a new favorite.




On the Blog This Past Week:

Week 2 of the 3 week Batty About Books discussion of Geeks, Girls, and Secret Identities





My Sci Friday review of a fabulous upcoming middle grade Science Fiction!




 A story with deep thoughts about infinity and "forever" - I reviewed Infinity and Me on Wednesday and linked to Aly's Nonfiction book reviews at Kid Lit Frenzy.

A random teen handed me this graphic novel at the library, so of course I had to read and review it! Filled with dark British humor, and set in Victorian London - The Professor's Daughter was a quirky delight for YA and adult audiences.
