Welcome to my little corner of book heaven. Here's what I read the last two weeks. Don't forget to visit the lovely hosts of this meme - Teach Mentor Texts and Unleashing Readers. There are links to a LOT of posts there!
Just a few titles from the last *coughs* way too long since I posted. Here are some of my favorite reads!
Excellent "starter" science fiction for middle grades. I found the idea of Gabby sitting for alien children quite appealing, and the situations will make kids laugh! (I won a copy of this book in a contest)
Listened to this one, as it was a free YA Sync book. I read this in high school (and college). What a different experience as an adult! I still adore this book, but I kept feeling like reaching through and shaking the main character. "Oh, you poor immature child". I am pretty sure I didn't have this reaction when I read it as a teen.
Come back on the 18th for my stop on this blog tour! I really loved this action packed adventure (I received an ARC from the publisher)
I also participated in this blog tour. I love this author's sense of humor. I can't wait to get this book into kids' hands in the fall (it releases June 23rd - and I got an ARC from the publisher.
I brought this ARC into my classroom and I had a line form. The cover appeal is super strong, especially for gamers. Only 4 kids got through the book before the year was up, but they all gave it 4+ stars. It's marked as young adult, but I found it fine for my strong upper elementary (5th) students.
