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: Letting Ana Go by Anonymous – this book is written in the form of an “anonymous” diary, which makes you feel like you are reading an actual diary of a young lady with an eating disorder. This book is so interesting, because at the beginning of it you really don’t feel like this girl is going to be the one suffering from an eating disorder…you think that maybe it will be one of her friends, but then after a series of events in her life, she is the one who becomes trapped in an eating disorder. A very good (and important) read for teens. I remember reading Go Ask Alice when I was in high school about a teen who becomes addicted to drugs. This book is inspired by that novel.
Listening to: Fly Away Home by Weiner. STILL! And, you know what? I still can’t figure out if I’ve read it before or not. It’s just one of those story lines that seems to be played out in so many books (husband leaves, wife has to be strong, happy ending)…I should be wrapping it up this week.
PS – Don’t forget – I am participating in Donalyn Miller’s Sixth Annual Book-a-Day Challenge this summer…it will be my third year participating. You can follow me on my library Facebook page, Goodreads and on Instagram to checkout the books I read this summer (#bookaday). I will mention many of the books I read this summer in my #imwayr blog posts, but chances are, I won’t mention ALL of them 🙂
