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 am currently staying out at Disney World with Jim and Trent because my (crazy!) husband is running the Dopey (5K on Thursday, 10K on Friday, 1/2 maraton on Saturday, and marathon on Sunday). I will update you on my reading next week! Have a wonderful week!!!
Ricki: I read some great books this week! I finished Kekla Magoon’s How It Went Down. In light of the recent protests, this was an incredibly insightful book. The point-of-view shifts every 2-3 pages, which was very thought-provoking. This is the first book that I have completed from my #mustreadin2015 list. Yahoo!
Henry and I loved Matt de la Peña’s new picture book, Last Stop on Market Street. It is a beautiful book that we’ve read at least eight times this week. I can’t wait to review it. We also really enjoyed Peter H. Reynolds’ The Dot. We read two other picture books, but I don’t have a lot of nice things to say about them, so I am leaving them off of the list this week. I like to stick with the good recommendations! 🙂

This Week’s Expeditions
Kellee: See above. I apologize in advance if I am not able to comment on as many posts as usual as well. Happy reading!
Ricki: I can’t decide which book to read next. Would anyone recommend a book I should put to the top of my #mustreadin2015 list? I’d like to tackle another in January to stay ahead of the game. I trust my blogger friends’ advice, and many of the books on that list are popular books that I just haven’t gotten around to reading!
