It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? From Picture Books to YA!
It’s Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme started by Sheila at Book Journeys and now hosted by Kathryn at The Book Date. 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!
Kellee and Jen, of Teach Mentor Texts, 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
Wow. Count Olaf is terrible! My student says to not give up, so I am moving on, but I am having a really hard time with all of the horrible things that are happening to these children. A table of my students who have read it and I had an interesting conversation about perspective: theirs vs. a mother’s/teacher’s.
Hi, all! I am away for the next two weeks and unable to post. I was at ALA Midwinter this past Sunday and Monday, and my sister is visiting from NYC this weekend through Wednesday. I look forward to catching you all next Monday!
This Week’s Expeditions
- I am ready to make an official statement about something: I read books much more and much quicker when they are e-books, and I still comprehend them as well, and I like it! *gasp!* I had Mez’s Magic as a hardcover at home all week, and I just didn’t have a ton of time to read at home; however, I bought the ebook Saturday, and I have read more in 24 hours than I had all week. My phone is just everywhere with me, and I can easily read in bed, so it is just so much more efficient for me. That being said, I am loving Mez’s Magic, and I cannot wait to finish it now that I am chugging along. I had hoped to read one more Schrefer book before our Skype on Friday, but I don’t think that’ll happen, sadly.
- I am moving onto Series of Unfortunate Events #2. I’m trusting my kids… We’ll see. So far the adults in the book aren’t failing the kids as much as in the first.
- I have so much to choose after this. We’ll see!
