What are you reading?

“It’s Monday! What are you Reading?” is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. It is a chance for book lovers to share their reading accomplishments as well as what is on the proverbial nightstand. She even does a giveaway. Subsequently Jen and Kellee at Teach Mentor Texts added an opportunity for those reading kidlit to join the fun. Since I read both I will post to both. Check them out, join the conversations, and discover more great books.

Here is what I have read in the past month.
An * indicates my ‘must own’ list, either for myself or my classroom library.

Planting Dandelions by Kyran Pittman

The Unwanteds by Lisa McMann

*Poison Study by Maria V. Snider
The start of a series. I am anxious to read the next two.

The Memory Keeper's Daughter by Kim Edwards

*Everyday Editing by Jeff Anderson
I am looking forward to incorporating these ideas into my classroom this year.

Inside the Kingdom by Carmen Bin Ladin

Product DetailsiWrite: Using Blogs, Wikis, and Digital Stories in the English Classroom by Dana J. Wilbur

*The Digital Writing Workshop by Tony Hicks
This book gave me ideas, sites, and things to ponder for my classroom this year.


  1. Quite an array, Kristi. I am interested in the IWrite book, looks interesting!

  2. I remember enjoying The Memory Keeper's Daughter, but it's been ages since I read it.

    Have a great week of reading!
