Sorry to say goodbye to Summer Reading..

It has been a summer filled with incredible stories, having read and listened to middle school and YA novels.

I haven’t met my goal of 30 books, but I still have a week!

I think my favorite is Mackenzi Lee‘s: 29283884

The narrator, Christian Coulson, completely brings this character to life!

Other books that I look forward to sharing with my students are…


Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. It took me a few chapters to get into the story, but then…I couldn’t put it down. I always enjoy a good heist story, and this one includes kids with powers! What more could you want? I lost myself in the characters’ interesting, diverse backgrounds and realistic, yet fantastical setting.

The Inquisitor’s Tale. So far, this is my favorite for 4th grade & up. It is historical fiction, funny and magical-and GREAT WRITING. I miss the characters, so hopefully there will be a sequel. The Audible version was incredible!

The Diviners. This historical fiction fantasy is really scary & disturbing in places, so if you are easily creeped out…you might want to pass on this one! I loved the writing! I am currently reading the second book in the series, Lair of Dreams.

I will add more notes later on these middle and YA books!

I am excited to add them to my class library, and I am working to create interesting categories, inspired by this post by Amy Rasmussen

We are Magnificently Confused and Other Names for Bookshelves.


My goal this year is not only to read more but also to blog more! I don’t have a great track record with this!
