It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? From Picture Books to YA!
It’s Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journeys. It is a great way to recap what you read and/or reviewed the previous week and to plan out your reading and reviews for the upcoming week. It’s also a great chance to see what others are reading right now…you just might discover the next “must-read” book!
Jen Vincent, of Teach Mentor Texts, and Kellee decided to give It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? a kidlit focus. If you read and review books in children’s literature – picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels, anything in the world of kidlit – join us! We love this meme and think you will, too.
We encourage everyone who participates to support the blogging community by visiting at least three of the other book bloggers that link up and leave comments for them.

Last Week’s Journeys
Kellee: I started Doll Bones and am really liking it yet. Still in the exposition (loving the kids!), but love how it is written. I also read the picture books we’re reviewing this week: Scary Places Map Book, Night Horse, Now Open the Box. The Scary Places Map Book was a reread and I just love how fun it is—I look forward to sharing it and the others with you this week.
Ricki: This week, I read Man Made Boy by Jon Skovron. High school English Teachers will particularly love the connections this one has with Frankenstein, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and classic mythology. Check out my post on Thursday for more information about the book!
This Week’s Expeditions
Kellee: I am going to finish Doll Bones, and then my next book is My Sister Jodie by Jacqueline Wilson. Jacqueline Wilson is a well-loved UK MG author and I look forward to being introduced to her. [I still haven’t worked on my presentations for NCTE yet, so I need to get on those too!]
Ricki: I am going to read Now Open the Box by Dorothy Kunhardt, a classic children’s book that has been republished, and then I am going to read Jacqueline Wilson’s Hetty Feather. Kellee and I are excited to read and learn about this beloved author. I also started reading the ARC of Reality Boy by A.S. King. I am hoping to finish that by the end of the week. So far, it is incredibly good!
