Jen at Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee at Unleashing Readers cohost It's Monday! What Are You Reading? Be sure and stop by to see what others are reading and recommending or to participate.
Saturday I wrote a post about celebrations, thanks to Ruth Ayres and her Celebrate This Week Link-up.
I was celebrating the inauguration of my Mock Newbery Breakfast Club. I had a couple of people ask what book titles I was including, so I thought I would write today about those books we WILL be reading.
All of the books were recommended on Goodreads and by teachers on various websites. My goal is to persuade my readers to read books which are out of their comfort zone. These students are high ability, and I want to push them to think more critically about the books they read.
Here's the list I currently have but several more I want to add. I have not read all of them, so I welcome feedback on my choices or other titles you feel I need to find.
