#IMWAYR ~ Reading/Listening ~ The Best Medicine

What an amazing week I've had!  It culminated in a relaxing weekend, with beautiful spring-like weather, walks with my dogs, reading, reflecting, writing, bookstore browsing, doing yoga, and of course, spending time with family.  

Last week I missed posting for #IMWAYR because I was recovering from a sinus infection.  I came home from school and a visit to my doctor last Thursday and headed to bed.  So, the next day was a sick day, spent in bed.  The day was spent napping.  When I wasn't dozing, I was lost in the world of story ~ listening to audio books.  My sick day reading/listening took me into the weekend and provided some of the best medicine.  Here are the books that kept me company  . . .

This book is truly AMAZING!  It has touched my heart in more ways than I can even say.  It is truly a book that has had personal connections for me.  I plan to write more about the impact that this middle grade novel has had on me.  It is a real life changer.  

This is a fun early chapter book that so many of my students adore.    I wish books like this and characters like the Princess in Black were around when I was first venturing into reading chapter books. 

This book was silly and heart-warming.  It is the perfect "next read" for Mercy Watson fans!  And it is also a step up in the beginning world of chapter book reading. 

I had to read a picture book, too and I hadn't ever taken the time to read this sweet book. 

I am now anxiously awaiting the publication of the second book, The Unbreakable Code!  I loved so many things about this book.  It will be so much fun to booktalk and recommend this title.  There are so many fun things about it ~ mystery, books, adventure, friendship, and I am traveling to California this summer and hoping to get to San Fransisco! 

Make sure you check out everyone's post for #IMWAYR!  I know I always add books to my "to read" list on GoodReads and/or in one of notebooks.  Happy Reading!
