March Reads

Here’s everything my family read this month. What have you been reading?

I’ve decided to list all the novels my kids are reading regardless of weather they finished them this month. My sixth grader is reading multiple books simultaneously and hasn’t actually finished any of them this month. I am only listing history books that they actually finished. Since there are multiple history books that my 8th grader has been reading all year a few chapters each month.

My 6th Grader’s March Reads:

  • Chains by Laurie Halse Anderson (year long literature study, not finished)
  • Refugee by Alan Gratz (discussing with reading buddy, not finished)
  • Spaced Out by Stuart Gibbs (independent reader, not finished)
  • Hitchhikers Guild to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams (read aloud, not finished)
  • Two Miserable Presidents by Steve Sheinkin

My 8th Grader’s March Reads:

  • Call of the Wild by Jack London
  • York by Laura Ruby (Did Not Finish, he didn’t like it)
  • Lord of the Flies by William Golding
  • The Thing About Jellyfish by Ali Benjamin (just started, not finished yet)
  • Which Way to the Wild West by Steve Sheinkin
  • Red Cloud by SD Nelson
  • Wheels of Change by Sue Macy

My March Reads:

  • The Silk Roads by Peter Frankopan
  • The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker
  • A Gathering of Shadows by VE Schwab
  • A Conjuring of Light by VE Schwab
  • The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton
  • Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World by Jack Weatherford
  • American Gods by Neil Gaiman
  • A Night Divided by Jennifer Nielsen
  • How to Be a Good Creature by Sy Montgomery
  • Lovely War by Julie Berry
  • Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari
  • The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller
  • An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
  • The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers

As you can see, I read a lot of history this month. I’m working on finalizing my oldest son’s 9th grade reading list, especially for world history. I really enjoyed Silk Roads, but I’m not going to assign it to my ninth grader next year. I would recommend it for late high school or adult readers, not high school freshman. I am going to have him read Sapiens and Genghis Khan though (along with a lot of other books).
