It's Monday! What are you Reading? From Picture books to YA is a meme hosted by Jen and Kellee at TeachMentorTexts. Hop on over to their blog to see what others are reading this week!
I really enjoyed all of these books. I don't know what took me so long to read The Bad Beginning, but now that I have I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series. I listened to this book on CD and it was narrated by Tim Curry. He did a FANTASTIC job! I think kids would love the voices he gives to each character, especially his very creepy interpretation of Count Olaf. I read The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind on WeGiveBooks.org. It was a very inspirational story based on real events. Dead End in Norvelt was narrated by the author, Jack Gantos. This was great because he has a very funny voice and I enjoyed listening to him imitating his more youthful self. The Touble with May Amelia was very good, and I can't wait to get my hands on the original! (To see book trailers for the last two books, click here.)
This week I will still be working on Breadcrumbs by Anne Ursu. I am also going to be starting Divergent by Veronica Roth. A could of friends and I decided to start a mini book club, and this will be our first read. Since reading the Hunger Games series, I am totally into this type of genre now and can't wait to start another highly recommended series.
