It's Monday and time for What are you reading? Link up with Jen at Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee and Ricki from Unleashing Readers to see what others are reading.
I was out for snow/ice last week on Wednesday. Did I spend time cleaning or working on lesson plans for this week? Of course not!!! I read the Matched series I had ordered for my middle school students. I think they'll be perfect for my uppers who loved hunger games.
If you haven't seen them:
Matched, Crossed, and Reached by Allyson Braithwaite Condie.
In the three books you learn about Cassia has always been a loyal citizen of the "Society". Upon her matching day she's excited to learn she's been matched with her childhood friend Xander, but a second match is discovered, with Ky. Cassia has to deal with her feelings for both boys as she discovers things in the Society are not as perfect as they seem.
Loved them. Great series for your upper grade students.
Keep Reading. With this crazy winter weather what else is there to do...
