It's Monday - June 3rd

It was a HOT one this week! At least where I am. Did you all stay cool and read?

Don't forget to check out the other posts at Teach Mentor Texts...

My reading week was slightly light, and it is once again the fault of The Doctor. Doctor Who? Exactly. I'm almost caught up, so that should get better soon...







Humorous Middle Grade

The Barftastic Life of Louie Burger
by Jenny Meyerhoff
Publication Date - June 11th.

This is a GREAT middle grade book. I'll do a full review next week.

(I received an ARC of this book from the publisher)








Creepy Upper Middle Grade

The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls
by Claire Legrand

I won a copy of this one from the author during teacher appreciation week (along with her upcoming title The Year of Shadows - but I have to steal that back from my students to read)

It is creepy as ALL heck - the perfect book for students who like Coraline, Juniper Berry, and Spindlers.

I can't wait to create a Creepilicious display for my room for the fall!








Nonfiction:
Fun, quick read. Subdivided into sections. A great example of how to work through mistakes as well as a good nonfiction text. 











I also did a Marvelous Middle-Grade Monday post today
- check out my reviews of Rump and The Key & the Flame  (both come highly recommended by my younger son)
