It's Monday, What Are You Reading is a weekly blog meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journeywhere you list the books you read last week and the ones you hope to read this week! This is my first time participating, should be fun!
Read Last Week:
Midwinter of the Spirit - Phil Rickman: I read this author a very long time ago, and something about these dreary gray rainy days of April made me check him out again. I am glad I did- this book is part of the Merrily Watkins series. Merrily is a Deliverance priest in England, or what we would call an exorcist. Very interesting book.
Catherine, Called Birdy - Karen Cushman: I work in an elementary school library, and try to work my way around the books, especially the Newbery Award winners like this one. I loved how it was written in journal form, our students love that style. It was also an easily read depiction of life in England in the 13th century for a girl of minor nobility.
Adventure Divas - Holly Morris: To be honest, I expected more from this book. I enjoyed parts of it, others just left me bored. I wanted it to be as fun and adventurous as the cover and title make it out to be, which it wasn't, and to introduce me to the lives of great women throughout the world, which it did.
A Crown of Lights - Phil Rickman: Another in the Merrily Watkins series.
The Orange Eats Creeps - Grace Krilanovich: I heard about this through NPR, I am very excited!!
Watership Down- Richard Adams: One of my favorite books ever, top ten for sure. I reread it every year around this time. I love rabbits, and this book gives them great feisty personalities. This book also probably influenced my decisions regarding animal rights and vegetarianism. Love it, love it.
So there it is, my lists. What about you, what are you reading? I would love to know!
