treatbadgeIt’s Treat Tuesday! What are you reading….I mean eating?!

Thank you Shannon Houghton for the awesome meme picture! Check out Shannon’s fabulous blog!

The Year of Billy Miller by Kevin HenkesThe Year of Billy Miller by Kevin Henkes goes well with chocolate pudding.  I am treating myself with some chocolate pudding since I have been getting up early and working out. I love to work out! Why? Well, because I read at the same time of course! Getting healthy and reading at the same time! Bliss….even at 6 in the morning.

I ADORE The Year of Billy Miller by Kevin Henkes. A classic, sweet, simply wonderful story about Billy, his family and his year as a second grader. All I can say is pre-order this book now! It is goes on sale on September 17, 2013. I just can’t wait to read this book aloud to my second grade students.

RumpAnother book I loved reading this summer was Rump: The True Story of Rumpelstiltskin by Liesl Shurtliff. I had a great time talking about this very funny book with other readers on Twitter for the Virtual Book Club chat. Here is the archive of the chat! Such a fun time! A huge thank you to Liesl Shurtliff for joining us!

Doll BonesThe next Virtual Book Club chat will be on Monday, August 5th at 9 p.m. EST on Twitter. Just use the hashtag #virtualbookclub to join in. We will be talking about the book Doll Bones by Holly Black. So please join us! Everyone is welcome!

SideKicksI am also getting ready for the Sharp-Schu book club by reading Sidekicks by Dan Santat and Bobby vs. Girls (Accidentally) by Lisa Yee and illustrated by Dan Santat!
