#imwayr It’s Monday! What are you reading?! 3.17.14

What Are You Reading? was first hosted by Sheila at Book Journeys. If you’d rather follow folks who are reading books for grown ups, you should follow her Monday meme. I am  participating in the kidlit version of this meme (although sometimes I actually read books for grown ups).

In Print: Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins. I saw Perkins at YALLFest in November and have been wanting to read one of her books ever since. I like this book…I would have LOVED this book as a teen. A sweet love story. 

Listening to:  Flora and Ulysses by Kate DiCamillo. This is this year’s Newbery Award Winner. I wasn’t sure how this would go, listening to this book, since it is a mix of comic-type illustrations and words…a lot of the story is in the illustrations, but I’m loving the audio version. Cannot wait to pick up a print copy to see what I’m missing in the illustrations!  

At school: Still sharing books by Matthew Holm! He’s coming to my school on March 25!

    Listening: Just finished Emerald Atlas read by Jim Daley!! Grabbed the sequel this morning when I arrived. Outstanding reader, great story.
    Print: Picked up Ghost Hawk by Cooper
    For some reason, find myself captivated by adult books this past month. Time to slow down the adult titles and move back to kids. 🙂
