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


Before starting Legend like I said I was going to, I felt I needed a contemporary YA just to clean my pallet since I’d just read a fantasy novel. I picked up Someone Else’s Summer by Rachel Bateman and it was PERFECT–exactly what I needed. It is a road trip novel which is one of my favorite types of books! It was sad and thought-provoking but also lovely and romantic. It is a special book, and I look forward to reviewing it.

Then I started Legend, and oh man! I can see why my kids want me to read it. I haven’t read a great dystopian adventure in a while; it is nice to be back in this type of genre. I am currently reading Prodigy, and I cannot wait to see what happens!


Hi! I am off the grid this week because my dissertation goes to the committee this Wednesday. Hugs to you all, and I apologize for being so elusive this month!

  1. I loved the Legend series, so glad to hear you like it, too, Kellee. And best wishes Ricki with your doctoral work. Wow, such a tough thing with all you have besides that. Soon, over! At least that part! Happy week both of you!

  2. Legend is one of my favorite series. I wish I knew more people IRL who read it so I could discuss that ending. Marie Lu <3! I really enjoyed Someone Else's Summer too. I thought it was very heartfelt and the romance was sweet.

    • We can chat when I finish! I am on to Champion today!
      And I agree about Someone Else’s Summer! I wish I taught HS, so I could share it with kids.

  3. Someone Else’s Summer looks like a good YA read, although it also looks like I better get a fresh box of tissues ready!
