Anyway for those who have read The Book Whisperer, did you know Donalyn Miller has a blog and a challenge. I always look forward to what she has to share. Last summer I completed the book a day challenge and thought I would share some of the great reads I came across, in case you need to add to your summer stack.
First of all, I love to keep track of what I read. I do it in a journal and on goodreads.com. Why both, I am not sure, but I still have a handwritten version going on. Goodreads has lots of ways for finding what to read next.
Reading so many books, often means I can't remember details from a lot of them, so I am sharing the ones, whose titles bring back stories I remember. Numbered, but in no particular order....
1. Queen of Babble series by Meg Cabot. Chick Lit....fun and light reading:)
"An old hound that has been chained up at his hateful owner's run-down shack, and two kittens born underneath the house, endure separation, danger, and many other tribulations in their quest to be reunited and free."
4. Because of Mr. Terupt by Rob Buyea--Seven fifth-graders at Snow Hill School in Connecticut relate how their lives are changed for the better by "rookie teacher" Mr. Terupt. WARNING: Do not read this book without tissue!
-a club born as a spur-of-the-moment alibi after its members are discovered breaking curfew by the Germans occupying their island."
One silver-starry night, a shiny, wooden egg falls from a flying machine high in the air . . . down, down, down through the midnight sky . . . down to the small village of Pumbleditch, where Barkbelly is born. Where he’s the only wooden boy. And where he’s the cause of a tragic accident."
and everything by Sarah Addison Allen
