It’s Monday! What are you reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila over at Book Journey.
Last week I read:
The Crane Wife by Sumiko Yagawa (fairy tale)
Seed by Seed: The Legend and Legacy of John “Appleseed” Chapman by Esmé Raji Codell (children’s non-fiction)
Seven Fathers by Ashley Ramsden (fairy tale)
Little White Duck: A childhood in China by Na Liu and Andrés Vera Martinez (children’s non-fiction)
Cardboard by Doug TenNapel (middle grade graphic novel)
Let’s Sing a Lullaby with the Brave Cowboy by Jan Thomas (children’s fiction)
The Three Bully Goats by Leslie Kimmelman (fairy tale retelling)
Fabulous Fishes by Susan Stockdale (children’s fiction)
Zora!: The Life of Zora Neale Hurston by Dennis Brindell (middle grade/YA non-fiction)
Fifty Cents and a Dream: Young Booker T. Washington by Jabari Asim (children’s non-fiction)
The First Year of Homeschooling Your Child by Linda Dobson (non-fiction)
Usborne the Children’s Book of Art by Rosie Dickins (children’s non-fiction)
Favorite Book(s) of the Week:
I was trying to narrow this down to just one book but I couldn’t. Little White Duck, The Crane Wife, and Seed by Seed were my favorite reads of the week.
Since one of my current reads, Far From the Tree, is a tome (900+ pages), last week I decided to read other books at the same time. The next thing I knew, I’m reading four books at a time and that doesn’t include all the children’s books.
I’m currently reading:
Far From the Tree by Andrew Solomon (non-fiction)
The Twelve Tribes of Hattie by Ayana Mathis
Mysterious Tales of Japan by Rafe Martin (folklore)
The Little Red Guard: A Family Memoir by Wenguang Huang (non-fiction)
It’ll probably be Howling’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones. I plan on reading it with my daughter soon. After seeing the movie trailers for Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia, I think I’m going to add that to this week’s reading pile too.
