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.

Last Week’s Journeys
Kellee: This week I continued rereading my books for the award committee, so unfortunately I cannot talk about them. What I can share is that I finished an (adult!) Al Franken audiobook entitled Oh, The Things I Know! which, if you like Al Franken, was quite funny. He really knows how to find humor in just about any situation.
Ricki: I am also continuing to reread books for the award committee, and sadly, I can’t talk about them either. We will surely share news about them when we are permitted. I finished The 5th Wave by Ricky Yancey and loved it. I plan to post a review next Thursday to share its goodies. I also finished Relish: My Life in the Kitchen by Lucy Knisley, an excellent graphic novel about Kinsley’s life, told through food.
This Week’s Expeditions
Kellee: I am going to take a quick break from rereading because I got a book from the library that I had been waiting for: Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell. I have heard such great things about it from some people I know who have great taste. After finishing it, I will go back to my rereading though I am almost done. For my audiobook, next in line is a Margaret Cho (adult!) book which I hope is as hilarious as her stand-up.
Ricki: My school librarians gave me one more day to finish Les Miserables, so I will finish that today or tomorrow. Honestly, it has been insufferable, so I’ve been trudging through it for weeks. I always tell my students to put down books they don’t like, but I never seem to follow my own advice! I am also reading Eleanor and Park, like Kellee, and we plan to team up for a review later this month (yahoo!).
