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.

Last Week’s Journeys
I’m writing this quite early because MY PARENTS ARE COMING TO VISIT! I don’t see my parents anywhere as much as I wish I did because they live in Baton Rouge, but I get to have them here with me for 5 days, so I wanted to blog before they got here.
I finished reading the Mock Sibert books that I requested from the library, and they were all brilliant. I am definitely buying Jazz Day and I Dissent for my classroom, and Giant Squid and Radiant Child for my household.
I want to read everything by Matt de la Peña. He has a way of writing that just brings voice to whomever he chooses. This is my last #mustread2016 book I’m reading because I left the other one at school 🙁
I now can definitely see why Ghost was a National Book Award Finalist and is on so many Mock Newbery Lists including my club’s. I couldn’t put this book down. If you haven’t read Ghost’s story: PICK IT UP!
We are so lucky to get some amazing books for review, and I read two of them this week that I’ll be reviewing in January: Zack Delacruz Just My Luck by Jeff Anderson and Frightlopedia by Julie Winterbottom.
Whoops. I started five new books this week and finished none. This is a common theme for me, lately!
This Week’s Expeditions
I am currently reading The Seventh Wish by Kate Messner (I just started), and I plan on reading more choices from my Mock Newbery Club after I finish it.
I am still enjoying For White Folks Who Teach in the Hood…And the Rest of Y’all Too: Reality Pedagogy and Urban Education by Christopher Emdin.
I just started Enter Title Here by Rahul Kanakia, and I am loving the strong voice. The narrator is very entertaining, and I find myself smiling often.
