Watchya Readin'? (2)

In Watchya Readin' Wednesday I share what my students are reading. This allows me to focus on what's really going on in the reading life of 7th graders. Hint hint - any publisher or authors reading, this is what 7th graders are REALLY reading not what I, the teacher, WANT them to read :) Let's get started on this week's addition!

This week instead of looking at what they are reading, I asked what they are waiting to read - a book they want to read but haven't been able to yet.  Here's what they had to say:

Maze Runner by James Dashner
Skeleton Key by Anthony Horowitz
Vladimir Tod Tenth Grade Bleeds by Heather Brewer
Stolen Children by Peg Kehret
Breaking Dawn (2 students) by Stephenie Meyer
Tempted by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast (2 students)
Charlie Bone and the Beast by Jenny Nimmo
Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
Series of Unfortunate Events #13 The End by Lemony Snicket
Cut by Patricia McCormick (2 students)
New Moon (3 students) by Stephenie Meyer
Diary of Wimpy Kid 4 (3 students) by Jeff Kinney
Never Slow Dance with a Zombie by E. Van Lowe
Cirque du Freak Tunnels of Blood by Darren Shan
The Ghost of Fossel Glen by Cynthia DeFelice
Blad of Fire by Stuart Hill
Fallen by Lauren Kate

Isn't that an awesome list of books?? I take credit for getting some of these books on the list.  I've talked a ton about Fallen, The Maze Runner and Never Slow Dance With a Zombie.  I will admit that most of these are on my TBR list as well.  How old am I again???


  1. Sounds like you're doing a great job guiding your kids to some great books! Thanks for posting the list.

  2. Young at heart, that's what I tell myself.
