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


Well, my reading slowed down a bit this week because of “Th1rteen R3asons Why” on Netflix. I was obsessed and finished it over four days! I have so much to say about it; I may have to do a post about it!

I did finish the Legend series! Wow! That is one intense story, and I now know exactly why my kids devour it and were so upset that I hadn’t read it yet.


I listened to the audio of The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner. Gosh, I love this book so much. I will definitely be using this book next semester in my courses! There is so much to talk about, and I think it will make for phenomenal conversations.

I read On Duck Pond by Jane Yolen with my boys. My three year old said, “Mama, that book was really, really nice.” That’s a true compliment from him. I loved this beautiful book. It reminded me a bit of Make Way for Duckings, one of my favorites.

Keep a Pocket in Your Poem by J. Patrick Lewis is a fun book. Each spread features a classic poem on one side and a playful parody of that poem on the other side. I enjoyed this one.

Percy: Dog of Destiny by Alison McGhee is a charming book that my sons enjoy reading. The illustrations make us laugh!


This Week’s Expeditions


I started Posted on Sunday–I look forward to reading it 🙂 After I finish, I plan on starting The Sweet Spot by our very own Stacy Mozer!


I am listening to The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. So far–wow. Now I understand why everyone is raving about this book.

  1. I had to laugh– one girl had a birthday, and her friends covered her locker with Post-It notes. I thought “Uh, oh!”, but they were all very nice and kind! It’s a great book. Always love to see what Anderson is doing.

  2. I never read Thirteen Reasons Why so I ordered a copy of the book after hearing such amazing things about the Netflix show. I am looking forward to reading Posted.

  3. Can’t wait to hear what you think about Posted! I have it but haven’t started it yet.
    I really loved the Pocket/Poem book. Brought it in for teachers to use this month. I have Percy to read this weekend.
    Have a good week 🙂

  4. I also adored the Legend series. Not so much Thirteen Reasons Why.
    I’m really really looking forward to reading The Hate U Give. Apparently, so are a lot of other readers. Six copies are on order and there are already 104 holds on these. On a positive note, Posted is also on order and I am number one in line for it!

    • You didn’t like 13 Reasons Why? The show or book? Any reason why?
      I think the Legend series is one of my favorite dystopian series out there!
      I own The Hate U Give, but I havne’t gotten to it… I hope to soon 🙂 Enjoy Posted when you get it!
