It's Monday! Here's What I'm Reading

Jen at Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee at Unleashing Readers cohost It's Monday!  What Are You Reading?  Be sure and stop by to participate and see what others are reading and recommending.

This weekend I read Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library.  What a fun book! This book is creatively crafted, woven with puzzles, videos games, book titles, and intrigue.  The main character, Kyle, resembles many of the students I have had throughout my years of teaching.  He would rather be playing videos than read a book any day.  I just have to chuckle when he says, "I'll have to put that one on my reading list."  

If you have reluctant readers, especially boys, then this book might just be the answer to get them going.  Although some of my 4th graders could read this book, I think it is more suited for 5th grade to middle school students because of the difficulty of keeping track of all the twists and turns in the plot.  

On deck for this week - two more books that I have heard so many good things about.

Happy Reading!


  1. I don't read a ton of middle grade (I am a teen librarian), but I have read all three of these titles and loved them all! You have some great reading picked out, I hope you enjoy!

  2. I haven't read The Rump, but the other two were wonderful. Doll Bones gave me the creeps, though!

  3. Well, I have all three & want to read them, just have been busy with some others. I think I might read about Mr. Lemoncello first, sounds so cute!
