Since I read way more things than I actually review I thought I would share those with you too. I am a huge believer in not reading something that I don't like and I share that philosophy with my students, so here is where you will find the titles I didn't finish and why. This is what I've read so far:
Death by Bikini by Linda Gerber: I did finish this one, but it really didn't do anything for me. I thought it would be funny and fluffy, but it just fell flat. The mystery was too transparent and the main character was far too serious. I would have to give it 2 out of 5 stars. It was Just OK.
One Day and One Amazing Morning on Orange Street by Joanne Rocklin: Still reading and hope to finish this weekend. This is a Tween read that I think would make an excellent classroom novel. The characters are well written and the plot is quirky and fun. Expect a full review when finished!!
If I Stay by Gayle Forman: I know I have been talking about this one A LOT - but it was just that good!! Here is what I wrote on Good Reads after I finished:
