Monday Book Tally 9/17
First book tally of the year!!!
I’m almost finished with Patrick Ness’s Monsters of Men – the final book in the Chaos Walking trilogy. Ness is quickly becoming one of my favorite YA writers.
I also read a very cool picture book about the life of Charles Darwin. It’s called The Tree of Life. It’s a very creative book that uses a multi-genre approach to storytelling – illustrations, bits of his journal, letters. If you like science or biographies and are looking for a unique and informative read, check this book out. It’s available in our class library.
Here’s our book tally for this week:
