Well good morning everyone and Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there!
(Do any dad’s read my blog? If so, let me know!)
Getting new books is like getting tasty treats that I can’t wait to devour, hence the name of this post “Tasty Treats”! (I am working on a Tasty Treats banner…well my husband is working on it for me!) This morning I wanted to share all the fun books and audiobooks I got-my-hands-on this past week. So what are we waiting for!?
Every thing in this stack is a title on the 2012-2013 Florida Sunshine State Book List. These are some of the books I need to read since I’m a school Media Specialist and the Battle of the Books team coach. Not only will I be reading and reviewing these books over the summer, but I’ll also be writing a ton of trivia questions from each book for my team to study. Lets look at the covers shall we?
The following titles are the Sunshine State books that I already had in my Media Center catalog.
The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
The Mostly True Adventures of Homer P. Figg by Rodman Philbrick
A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park
The Juvie Three by Gordon Korman
Some of the books on the list were not already ones I had in my Media Center, so I’ve had to go buy them, like the books below.
The Trouble with Half a Moon by Danette Vigilante
90 Miles to Havana by Enrique Flores-Galbis
Charlie Joe Jackson’s Guide to Not Reading by Tommy Greenwald
How Lamar’s Bad Prank Won a Bubba-Sized Trophy by Crystal Allen
I addition to all these middle grades titles I also needed some Young Adult audiobooks in my life. If I read just YA or just MG I get kinda bored with the one genre, so I have to mix it up now and then. Since the summer is a time full of middle grade reading, and I needed some new audiobooks to listen to while running, I decided to pick up some YA listens from my local public library.
Beastly by Alex Flinn (currently listening to)
If I Stay by Gayle Forman
So, there you have it – my recently received tasty treats! I know I’ll be having fun attacking these over the next few weeks! What fun reads did you get this week?
