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 cannot wait for break because these last couple of weeks have seemed so hectic! I have mostly read picture books and haven’t really been able to just sit and read. I hope to end the year with a high note during break though because I plan to fill it with read! I am still reading Persepolis but WILL finish it this week. I did have a chance to read a wordless graphic novel Fish Fish Fish by Lee Nordling which kids will definitely love. Trent and I read some books that are perfect for this time of year: Santa Goes Everywhere! by Brian Biggs, Catch That Cookie! by Hallie Durand, and The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg. The Polar Express took a couple of days, but it was such a joy to read it with me. I actually have a silver bell, so when Santa gave the silver bell to the boy, I gave one to Trent and now have a super cute and special photo.
Ricki: Uh oh. Please don’t judge me, but I didn’t finish any of my books this week. This is a consequence of the fact that I am reading six books and listening to three more.
This Week’s Expeditions
Kellee: One more week of school until I can read a lot more. I am going to finish Persepolis. That’s my plan right now. And, of course, reading with Trent.
Ricki: Like many readers, I have a list of books that I never got to. Get ready and hang onto your chair… I have never read Harry Potter. I fell asleep during the movies, so I never had interest in reading the series. I am listening to the audiobook in my car right now.
