It's Monday, What Are You Reading?


It is Monday and again I am joining in the meme over at Mentor Texts.

This last week I've been reading...

First in a series by Morris Gleitzman about Felix and Zelda two children caught up in World War 11 in Poland.  They are on the run from the Nazis.  Each chapter begins with Once....

An amazing book, while it is a horrendous read in one way it is a heart warming one as well, and I love how Gleitzman adds humour to it.





Then....

I had a plan for me and Zelda
Pretend to be someone else
Find new parents
Be safe forever

Then the Nazis came

Another amazing book in this series, it takes up immediately from Once, so I was very pleased I didn't have to wait and could start it straight away.  However didn't like the ending!  So sad, so shocking.

This coming week I would like to plan to read Now the third in the series by Morris Gleitzman. However it is out at the library so I will need to wait.  In the meantime I will read   The Spindlers by Lauren Oliver.

  1. This looks like a great new series. What age group do you recommend it for?

    1. about 12 years and up to adulthood. I think a 12 year old would want to talk about it to an adult who has read the books, as it may disturb them.

  3. Hi there Kathryn, I know of Morris Gleitzman, but I haven't read any of his books yet. Your recommendation makes me want to borrow these books from the library right away. Sounds like a pretty heavy read. One that my eleven year old daughter and I might enjoy and have long conversations with.

  4. Love the covers you shared of Morris's series; mine looks different. I have only read Then; I need to read the rest of the series.

    Happy reading this week :)
