It’s Monday. What are you reading is a fantastic weekly meme hosted by Sheila over at Book Journey.
Thanks to school, kids, and everything else known as life, I haven’t had much time for reading. I didn’t finish one book last week. I’m really not surprised since this is the last month of the semester and I’m being bombarded with paper after paper to write. I’m doing my best to carve out some reading time for myself.
This week I’m reading (and hopefully finishing):
Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston. I’m in a re-reading sort of mood plus the Classics Club is hosting a sync reading (a stress-free read-along) that’s currently going.
Waiting for “Superman”: How We Can Save America’s Failing Public Schools edited by Karl Weber. I’m reading this for my sociology class.
What It Is by Lynda Barry. This is one of my books left over from the read-a-thon.
The kids are reading:
Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt. My daughter, Piper, is reading this. I hope she ends up enjoying this as much as I did.
Wonder by RJ Palacio. After the lovely Alysia (Little Pocket of Books) suggested that we read this, my son started to. So far, Oliver’s enjoying it.
I’m not the only one in a re-reading mood. My youngest, Avram, loves Zoe B. and R.W. Alley’s There’s a Wolf at the Door. He’s been re-reading it every day. Often times, fairy tale re-tellings are a hit-or-miss. The Alley’s retelling of various stories featuring the Big Bad Wolf are hilarious and a great addition to the genre.
So that’s what we’re reading this week. What are you reading?
