Its Monday, What are you Reading?

It is Monday and again I am joining in the meme over at Mentor Texts.
Hop on over and join in over at the Mentor Text Blog. Just click on the picture 

And so the final post of the year 2012.

This week I read One For the Murphys by Lynda Mullaly Hunt.  Oh my, what a wonderful book. What a story, that could just so pull at my heartstrings.  Did I need tissues? Yes. A very special book to end the year on. I began it with Okay for Now by Gary Schmidt and I end it with this one. As it happens for me, the two best of the year.

Plan for this week, something a little less draining! So, I am going to read The Recruit by Robert Muchamore. The very first in the Cherub series. Two of the boys in my class this year highly recommend this series, so I need to taste it so that I can steer others in the class towards it.


  1. Wow, your post really makes me want to find this book. Thanks for sharing. Happy New Year.

  2. Emotional books can be just what I need sometimes. And of course they tend to be memorable. Happy New Year!

  3. Terrific 'bookends' for your year, Kathryn. Happy New Year!

  4. Hi there Kathryn, glad to hear about your beginning and ending book for 2012. I am not familiar with One Murphys but it sounds like a lovely tear-jerker. Would try to see if we have this in our libraries.
