It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? From Picture Books to YA!
It’s Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme started by Sheila at Book Journeys and now hosted by Kathryn at The Book Date. 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!
Kellee and Jen, of Teach Mentor Texts, 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.
Ricki is currently away on maternity leave! She has lined up reviews for the time she is away. While spending time with the newest member of her family, she is also working hard on completing her dissertation and is trying to focus her time accordingly. Ricki is looking forward to returning to share books with you all! Happy reading!

Last Week’s Journeys
As most of you know, I am a pretty big Chicago Cubs fan, so that means that I’ve been a little preoccupied!
On the few days the Cubs had off, I did read The Tapper Twins Go To War (With Each Other) by Geoff Rodkey, and I have to admit that I liked it so much! I loved the multi-formats within the text, the first person interview style, the inclusion of illustrations and photographs, and the voice of the characters.
This Week’s Expeditions
I am still listening to and reading the same books I mentioned last week. I really think I’ll be able to finish both this week.
When I finish Counting Thyme, I have no idea what I am going to listen to, but I will try to find a book on our Mock Newbery List.
After Some Kind of Happiness, I have one more book (by Kenneth Oppel!) to read for ALAN, and I need to read our next Faculty Book Club title.
