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: YAY! Another good reading week! Maybe it is picking back up–during the first half of my pregnancy I had a really hard time concentrating and not falling asleep when reading, so it made it really hard to read; however, it seems recently that I have been able to read more and it feels great! First I finished girlchild by Tupelo Hassman and it is such a unique novel although I believe it is an adult novel that some young adults will enjoy.
I also read a ton of picture books and enjoyed each and every one of them!: Penguin on Vacation by Salina Yoon, Bogart and Vinnie by Audrey Vernick, Millie and the Big Rescue by Alexander Steffensmeier, a bunch of Seymour Simon books (Penguins, Cats, Gorillas, Extreme Oceans, Extreme Earth, Strange Mysteries, and Out of Sight) and some National Geographic books (Jimmy the Joey, Ye Olde Weird but True! and Space.)
Ricki: This week, I read Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. Wow, wow, wow. This was a really good one. Rowell expertly captures the insecurities, relationships, and overall dynamics of college students. I loved it. I also reread Looking for Alaska by John Green for a class I am observing. It is always great to reread incredible books like this one.
This Week’s Expeditions
Kellee: I can finally read Allegiant!!! I am so excited! That is my only plan for this week! (Read This Dark Endeavor Ricki–everything he writes is amazing!)
Ricki: For the class I am observing, I am rereading Tyrell by Coe Booth. I absolutely love this book, so I am excited. I can’t decide what I will read next. I have always wanted to get to This Dark Endeavor by Kenneth Oppel. It feels like this is the week!
