Last week I finished reading:
Son of the Mob by Gordon Korman- Funny title that involves a high school romance between a boy whose dad is a mobster and a girl whose father is the FBI agent investigating him.
Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen- I listened to this title as part of my #bookbootcamp project about romances for tweens/teenagers.
The Bronte Sisters: The Brief Lives of Charlotte, Emily and Anne by Catherine Reef- I read Wuthering Heights as a teenager and loved it. Being familiar with the work of one of the authors made me want to read this book. It was interesting. I am not sure how many middle schoolers have read Wuthering Heights. And if they haven't read it, would they would be interested in reading about these authors? I guess I will find out.
Cow Boy by Cosby Nate- Short, funny graphic novel. I liked the artwork in several of the stories in the book.
Guitar Notes by Mary Amato- I LOVED THIS BOOK. I first heard about this book on the Teen Librarian Toolbox when they blogged about it here. I finally got my hands on this book and I could not put it down. Definitely adding it to my list of romance titles for teens.
The Ghost of Graylock by Dan Poblocki- Scary. Students looking for a ghost and mystery story will enjoy this book. I wish I had not waited so long to read it.
I read these books to my son:
Owly: A Time to Be Brave by Andy Runton
Martin de Porres: the Rose in the Desert by Gary D. Schmidt
I'm currently reading:
Enchanted (Woodcutter Sisters #1) by Alethea Kontis
Starting my reading slow.
