It's Monday, What Are You Reading?

Hi, everyone! Are you on Spring Break yet? My district has their break a little early this year, so I'm currently enjoying reading as many books as I can in addition to packing because we move at the end of the month. If you're on break, I hope you are enjoying it. If you're not on break, it will be here soon!

Here's what we are reading this week! I've included my own comments below each photo, including the genre.

Happy reading!

  • Thunderhead, the second book in a new trilogy from Neal Shusterman is phenomenal! It is Young Adult, so definitely preview it if you are a middle grade teacher. 
  • Aren't we all excited for The Wild Robot Escapes? I know several teachers in my building are excited to receive it over break and read it while they are off!

  • I recently learned about this YA novel while browsing Goodreads yesterday and then when I saw Haley reading it, I knew the universe was telling me something. Have you ever had those books that just seem to pop up everywhere? This book is about a boy that goes missing and his twin brother sets out to find him. What his brother, Marvin finds is chilling and is a story that has shown up in our news too many times. Grab a copy of this for students that crave more books like The Hate U Give and Dear Martin.

  • Confession: I do not have The Wild Robot Escapes in my hands RIGHT NOW. *However* I have been tracking my Amazon pre-order and it's looking good... my plan is to begin reading it as SOON AS it arrives on my doorstep. Please cross your fingers that the USPS is on top of their game tomorrow! 
  • The Great Alone is not young adult or middle grade, it is an adult fiction story. Which, you may or may not be interested in at all. One of my reading goals this year is to read at least one adult novel per month and considering it is March and I have not begun that goal yet... I'm not doing too well. Oops! Well, nevertheless, this has been a good novel to start out with. I'm about 40% through it and fully invested in the story. I would recommend it so far! 

Have a great week, everyone! 


  1. I think I'm finally sold on the Arc of a Scythe series. I'm seeing Thunderhead pop up all over my reading feed, so I had better get on board. I'll look forward to hearing your thoughts on The Wild Robot Escapes and The Great Alone, next week. I like to throw in some adult books here and there, as well. Fingers-crossed your package arrives quickly! :) Thanks so much for sharing!

    1. The Great Alone was FANTASTIC!! Great follow-up to The Nightingale (although, very different novels/topics!)

  2. Scythe and Thunderhead are SO GOOD!!! You'll be in the "waiting 17 months" boat with all of us just waiting for the next book.
    I'm jealous of Wild Robot Escapes and Tyler Johnson--they are both ones I really cannot wait to read!

    Happy reading this week! :)

    1. I finished Wild Robot Escapes last night and was soooooo happy with it! In fact, I'm pretty determined to read it aloud to my class now. It will make an amazing read aloud!

  3. I've been reading quite a lot of adult novels recently, too. Glad to see Wild Robot here! :)

  4. I'm looking forward to reading The Wild Robot Escapes. My library has it on order but I am way down on the list for it!

    1. I just finished it last night and it was SO GOOD!! Dare I say... better than the first?! How is that possible?!
