4.22 It’s Monday! What are you reading? #WillinScarlet

A new week, a new batch of books–both books finished and being read. Today is…

Ring-the-Bell Monday & It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

{Sharing what books we’ve read in the past week & the titles we are currently reading.}




{Yes, this is a Robin Hood “prequel” of sorts. It’s fun to see how Cordell weaves a new character into this classic tale. It’s nothing like his Powerless/Super series.  If you like Nielsen’s Ascendance Trilogy—The False Prince & Runaway King—there’s a pretty good chance that you’ll dig this, too. I’m planning on making a little poster composed of the cover and some of my favorite lines (which are often  used to start each chapter. Example: “We’ve all got pasts. It’s what you are now that counts. And what you do.” ~Robin Hood }
[Check back throughout the day for updates of my students’ reading.]
Since last Monday, my A Class has read:
8 books
My B Class has read:
14 books
My C Class has read:
9 books
Well, to be honest, I’m a little unsure. I’m going to dip back into
I’m going to finish George Washington’s bio and then head over to Jackie Robinson’s chapter. I’d like to read it before seeing the movie. Anyone want to meet me at the theater?
I might go for another Battle book if Light doesn’t come in. I also have a couple more ARCs on my iPad:
Out of The Easy

I’m STILL hoping my copy comes in to the library. I’m very excited—and sad—to finish this series. Epic.
{Most of the books I am thinking of reading NOW could go down here, too.}

Before you see what the students are reading… what are you reading? Please leave a comment and let us know—and show the students that reading isn’t just a “school” thing.


(For every parent who leaves a comment with what you’re reading, I’ll give your child a BUSTED ticket…)


[Check back at the end of the day to see the cool spinning pictures of what my students are reading.]

  1. I haven’t read any Matthew Cody books – I got Powerless on audio, so I’ll be listening to that soon. I read Out of the Easy. Really good but definitely upper YA. I’ll be teaching 5th and 6th next year instead of 4th, so I’m looking closely at your Spin Cams to see what your 6th graders are reading!
