With bible school, in-services and the holiday, I didn't make last weeks post. These are the titles I've read for the last two weeks.
Out of my mind by Sharon Draper
Loved it so much, I devoted an entire post to it! 5 Stars
Serpent's Shadow by Rick Riordan
I finally finished the Kane Chronicles - Serpent's Shadow by Rick Riordan. Loved it. Another homerun for Riordan.
Colossus Rises by Peter Lerangis
Lost in Babylon by Peter Lerangis
At the request of one of my students, I ordered the first 2 books of Peter Lerangis's series Seven Wonders. Colossus Rises and Lost in Babylon were both good reads. I really think my Rick Riordan fans will enjoy this new series. I'm really looking forward to book 3. It was published last May. Might have to sneak that one in my cart at Amazon or Barnes and Noble. I don't know if I can wait till fall to order it.
Prodigy by Marie Lu
This is the second book in her Legend series. It moved along better than Legend. I'm giving it 4 stars. My upper grade students will enjoy this one. Not for the lower grades...
Flora & Ulysses by Kate DiCamillo
FUNNY!!! My thoughts - Scaredy Squirrel meets middle school. Totally enjoyed this one. Perfect for my middle grade students who enjoy humorous stories. 3rd grade and up
Mouseheart by Lisa Fiedler
This one will be perfect for my students who enjoy animal fantasy. Maybe a cross between Erin Hunter's Warrior series and Brian Jacques' Redwall. I liked this one much better than the Warrior series. Looking forward to book 2 next March. Thanks, Ms. Yingling!
Finally I finished Belly Up by Stuart Gibbs
This one was interesting. Funny but slightly gross. The scene about the hippo guts will have my 4th graders laughing their heads off. Great mystery for the middle grades.
