SOL 14: 5 Books on my To Read List.

This post is part of the 9th Annual Slice of Life Writing Challenge.  Thanks to Two Writing Teachers for their hospitality and support!  Join Us!

9th Annual Slice of Life Story Challenge Invite

February brought a frenzy of reading.  I love that my son's 5th grade language arts teacher honored a competition proposed by the 5th graders:  Who can read the most minutes in February?  The only requirement?  Read outside of school time, share your minutes.  Winner?  Got to read the most minutes.

I love that nearly all the teachers participated.  It's truly a staff that seeks out more reading.

More often than not, Big A and I would giggle and hold up our books to see if we could get the other one to read.  We were constantly asking each other, "What did you read today?"  "How much did you read today?"
Now that March is here, my minutes have fallen off the cliff!  I'm hopeful that spring break will jump start some of my reading again!  Here are 5-ish books that are in my TBR pile:

On Friday night, Big A and I were out together.  A little dinner and the book store of course.  I picked this one up.  It's been on my radar a bit, and I really can't leave the book store without picking up something.

Okay Slicers.  A few of you have been blogging about this book.  I was holding it on Friday night.  I almost bought this one too.  You influence my book purchasing!  


The rest of these books have primarily been shared by my sister.  She's an avid reader too, and generously shares her books when she's done with them.  When we are with my mom, we each have a book stack to pass around.

What have you been reading?  Is there anything that you would recommend based on what is already here?

Joy!

  1. I need to read Pax, still haven't! The Guernsey Literary . . . is terrific. I think my daughter read The Goldfinch about 3 times. Others are new. How great that you all share your books. And love that about the minutes challenge, & your son holding up the book to remind. Very fun. Happy Reading, especially on your break!

  2. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society surprised me in many positive ways. The Goldfinch was thick, the topic was not of my interest, but the text was so well written that I kept reading. The other books are new to me. Title sharing is so exciting. Happy reading!

  5. I am anxious to hear what you think about Pax. I of course, loved it! But I love those books that take hold of my heart and squeeze it. I am currently reading Hour of the Bees which many people have been "buzzing" about and just bought the second in the Masterminds series by Gordon Korman. The first one was amazing! Great middle grade read. Happy reading!

  6. Pax is a yes!

    I finished The Goldfinch but resented the fact that I did read all the way to the end. One of less than a dozen books I have wanted to stop reading in my adulthood!

  8. I love Kristin Hannah's books. She wrote Firefly Lane, which sticks with me after seven years (I remember where I was when I finished it.)
