Currently Reading 6/10/13

Once again, it's time for:

hosted by Teach Mentor Texts and Book Journey.

So, Summer Reading began this last week at my library and it has consumed my life.  Also I've had a nasty virus-like thingy for two weeks.  These two things together have caused me to not read as much as I really really want to!  All I've finished this week have been picture books and comic books.  But they have been some excellent picture books and comic books, indeed!

  1. I just read Exclamation Mark and loved it too! But then, everything by Amy Krouse Rosenthal seems to be a winner. And Rose Under Fire! That is my #1 most-anticipated book this year! Can't wait to read it. Looks like you're going to have a great week of reading. I just started Midwinter Blood--it's intriguing but I'm not quite hooked yet. Happy reading!

  2. You have some fun titles here. That Dr. Bird's Advice keeps showing up in lots of people's tweets and posts. I am going to have to get to it this summer too.

  3. I finished Doll Bones last week and loved it. I recently read the first Fruits Basket and enjoyed it. I don't read a lot of manga, so I think I need to read a couple more volumes before I decide how I feel about it. I really liked Alice in the Country of Hearts and have Alice in the Land of Clover at home waiting for me. Feel better and have a great week!

  4. Goodness, what a lot of reading you have accomplished! Yours is the third mention of Eleanor and Park today- cant wait to get to it when summer begins!

  5. I'm not usually a historical fiction fan, but I loved Revolution! There's just something about the way in which this book was written, that really stuck with me. One of my all time favorite books! I'm curious to read what you think about it.
