It's Monday! What are you reading?



I’m joining Jen & Kellee (and many other bloggers) in discussing what we are reading this week. Join us! Go to their site and link up your own blog.

I love how my “reading weeks” have a different feel to them each week. This one was more about chapter books. My goal had been to focus on Newbery, but I only got one Newbery finished. Will refocus on Newbery this week before I leave for vacation.

Here’ s my reading week:

Favorite Book would have to be:


Other good reads of the week:




And here’s hoping more Newbery books are finished by next week! 
Have a great reading week!

    Yay!!!! This Is Not My Hat! Brilliant, right? I love it. That is a book that i wish I had more stars to give than 5. It makes me want to rethink all of my ratings because there are some 5-star books on my list that don't compare to This Is Not My Hat. It deserves a 5-star + in my book.

    Bink and Gollie is super cute, too. They need to crank them out a little faster. So great. I actually saw the first Bink and Golly in paperback now. I love it as a paperback. :)

  2. I'm happy to see a 3-star rating on a Newbery . . . currently struggling with Waterless Mountain. I need to move the Bink and Gollie books up in my TBR; I'm sure my youngest would adore them.

  3. Oh, Waterless Mountain is sooooo hard! I actually didn't mind Call it Courage but to go from 3 to 4 stars is big for me. I would have probably put it at 3.5 if I could do 1/2 stars. And you would love Bink and Gollie. So cute!

  4. Cindy gave a copy to Donalyn and I pestered them both until I could read it. So wonderful!!!

  5. Is that a new book by Klassen? Thanks for all the great books, Katherine. You are helping me find some good ones for my middle & younger grade search. Bink & Gollie, the Fletcher book & The Year of The Book all look good.

  6. The Horton cover looks incredible! Can't wait to read that one!

  7. Is Horten's Miraculous Mechanisms the one Tony recommended? I need to read it soon!
    Moving Day is a great introduction to novels in verse, or poems that go together to tell a story. Same for Emma Dilemma.
    Enjoy your reading week!

  8. Linda - it is! It's his companion book to I Want My Hat Back. It doesn't come out until October but someone had an ARC when I went to All Write. So good!

  9. Shelley - it was terrific and will be a series. Can't wait to share with my fifth graders.

  12. LOVE the new Jon Klassen! And love your snapshot from your Goodreads shelf! What a great idea.

    Have a fabulous reading week and if you get a chance stop by There's A Book to see what I'm up to as well. :)

  13. Bink and Gollie is probably too young for my students (as is the bunny detectives), so why do I want to read them so much?

  14. So many good books on the list! Looking forward to reading Year of the Book- I want to read that and Letters to Leo this summer.
    Jealous about Hat and Blink & Gollie and glad that Tony recommended Horten- it looks great!

    Happy reading this week Katherine! :)

  15. Read Bink and Gollie! They are "too young" for my readers as well, but I adored it. Short, so you can get back to the books for your students quickly. But what a wonderful read!

  16. I keep hearing about Year of the Book - I need to add that to my ever growing pile.
