Summer Reading

I've always loved to read. When I was in the 5th grade I was in the local paper for having read the most books in the town library's summer reading contest (I know - dork alert) There was always a list of books that we had to read for school each summer which I generally had finished within the first two weeks so I could go on to read whatever I wanted. Now, while I still love to read, it seems like the summer is the only time I actually read for pleasure. The school year is filled with planning, and grading, and the only books that I seem to read are the ones that I assign to my students. This summer I have decided to read the entire Harry Potter Series (something as an English teacher I should have read a long time ago) and several others. Any recommendations? What are you reading?

Here are some of mine

1. Harry Potter and The Sorcerer's Stone J.K.Rowling

2. Where are you now? Mary Higgins Clark

3. Whatever it takes Paul Tough

4. Readicide Kelly Gallagher
