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.
It’s Monday! What are you reading? has a new button! Make sure to grab it and update your blog post.

Last Week’s Journeys
Kellee: This week I read a SUPER CREEPY book. Now, I am quite sensitive to ghost stories and other horror things, but the book must be super good if it is affecting my dreams. I cannot wait to share Ghostlight with you on Friday. I also read Princess in Black and the Perfect Princess Party by Shannon Hale & Dean Hale, Francine Poulet Meets the Ghost Raccoon by Kate DiCamillo, and Sparky and Tidbit by Karthryn O. Galbraith for last Friday’s post. I think I can blanketly say that I enjoy everything that Shannon Hale and Kate DiCamillo write.
Ricki: This week, I started by reading a book about potty training (Oh Crap!). The author made me laugh, and I feel as prepared as I could be! I also read several picture books with Henry. We read Red: A Crayon’s Story by Michael Hall every night. I’ve mentioned this book on the blog before, but I continue to love the depth to this book. Every time I read it, I think critically about the world. Henry is also obsessed with the Playtown series by Roger Priddy. These are my favorite lift-the-flap books and are great for young kids.
This Week’s Expeditions
Kellee: This week I hope to read Hook’s Revenge by Heidi Schulz, Crenshaw by Katherine Applegate, or Read Between the Lines by Jo Knowles. I want (need) to finish all three of these by the 23rd (or at least two of them), so I need to read as much as I can this week. I am very much looking forward to all of them.
Ricki: I am loving A.S. King’s Glory O’Brien’s History of the Future. Next, I am excited to read Like Water on Stone by Dana Walrath. I’ve heard it is incredible.
