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.

Goodness. Sometimes I am apprehensive as I go to read a book lately. I’ve read so many amazing books I worry others won’t measure up. This reading week was bookended by two amazing books: The Runaway King – sequel to The False Prince, being released in March AND Navigating Early. Simply beautiful books.


Up next, one of the classics to work on my book gap challenge, Catcher in the Rye.
Happy Reading!

    I see that Penguin and Pinecone is receiving a lot of love this week, will try to check that one out. I fell in love with Catcher in the Rye when I was a college undergraduate student, perhaps I should revisit it one of these months. Clare Vanderpool's Navigating Early received five stars from you, wow! I hope our libraries get a copy of that one soonest. I loved Moon for Manifest. :)

  2. I will have to get If I Built a House! I used to use Van Dusen's If I Built a Car to have students create a futuristic car (then we also read it aloud when we did an engineering challenge and built cars from recycled bits). Loved it, so I'm sure the house story will lend itself to school in a number of ways too. I have a friend who loves Penguins, I bet Penguin and Pinecone would be the perfect Valentine's surprise.

  3. I am looking forward to reading Navigating Early-have heard much good about it. If I Built A House looks like a good one for inspiring inventions, etc. Thanks, Katherine.

  4. One of these days I'm going to sit by this cart full of historical fiction picture books I checked out from the public library and do some serious work on my book gap challenge. One of these days...

  6. I just read Vanderpools's Newbery book last month, and I'm really looking forward to Early. Sounds good.

  7. Curious to see what you think about Catcher in the Rye. I think I read it when I was much too old!

  8. I have Navigating Early - but since I bought it the library books are higher up my to do list! I'm also putting in a Scholastic order and the Runaway King will certainly be on my order!


    I haven't read Catcher in the Rye in so many years...
