It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a meme started by Sheila at Book Journeys. Jen and Kellee at Teach Mentor Texts put their own spin on it by focusing on picture books to YA. Jen has been pestering me (and I mean that in the nicest sense of the word) to do this meme for a few weeks now, so I think I’ll go ahead and do just that today.
What I Read Last Week
Prodigy by Marie Lu
I loved this book, and I have a review forthcoming closer to the release date, which is set for January 29, 2013.
A big thank you to Jillian Heise and her #ARCtours!
The Waiting Sky by Lara Zielin
I thought this was a great book as well. It is an issue book — the issue in this case being alcoholism. The book does a great job of focusing on how the disease affects the family members, and that they need help, too. I’ll post a full-length review soon, as the book releases this week.
What I’m Reading This Week
The Lost Code by Kevin Emerson
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
(another #ARCtours book that I’m hoping to have in my mailbox today!)
Those are all my reading plans, but I’m sure more books will pop in and show themselves.
Have a great week of reading, everyone!
