It's Monday...What are you reading?

   I finished Ten by Gretchen McNeil.  I don't want to say too much because don't want to give any of the plot away.  My first copy has already been snagged before I even got it on the shelf.  I have another copy order and several who already are wanting to read it.  I can't wait to talk to someone who has read the book.  I talked with Mrs. Matzke already.  She loved the book.  I loved it, but I didn't like the ending.  She loved it because she couldn't see the final twist coming.  That's probably why I didn't love the ending.  I don't like huge surprises. 
    I also started and finished Promised by Caragh O'Brien this weekend.  (Exciting weekend, huh?)  This book is the third in the Birthmarked trilogy.  If you haven't read Birthmarked, you are missing out.  (Aubrey...)  I'm also not going to say too much because I don't want anyone reading the first or second book to know how those books end.  Let's just say that I had too many questions left after I finished this book.  I'm also looking forward to talking to Cheyenne about this book and finding out her thoughts.
     Right now, I'm reading your sentences from the worksheet, "What Power is Often Made Of".  I'm amused how many of you think that you might become infamous someday from robbing a bank.  I'm hopeful that none of you become infamous for that!  I'm also learning about exciting incidents that have happened to many of you.  I'm not sure that losing your phone is exciting though.  I'd classify that as frightening!
     So...what are you reading?  Be sure to put your name at the end of your post and to make a connection to another student or parent's post.
