It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? #IMWAYR 5/29/17

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


Happy Memorial Day! I’m taking this Monday off to enjoy my three day weekend, but I will update you next week 🙂

Also, just as a heads up, I’ll be taking off two Mondays in June also: one for Future Problem Solvers International Conference (anyone live in Wisconsin?) and the other for the American Library Association Annual Conference (anyone going to be there?).


Happy Memorial Day! I spent the last week working on the details for my sister’s bridal shower that was this Sunday. I apologize that I missed out on visiting blogs last week, but I promise to be better!

I finished listening to The Great American Whatever by Tim Federle. What a fantastic book! I particularly loved that the author read the book. This made it feel quite special. This text provides a lot of great opportunities for discussion, and it would make a great addition to high school classrooms.

I am still reading Scythe by Neal Shusterman. It’s just as good as everyone says. 🙂

  1. Kellee – I’m in WI. 🙂 I hope your time off is great. Ricki, I haven’t tried Scythe yet, but have enjoyed some of Shusterman’s work before.

  2. Ricki, I think SCYTHE is a book I will try and get to this fall. Headed back to FL for the summer and the box of books is packed!
    Hey Kellee, I’ll be at ALA, we should meet up 🙂 🙂 🙂 hee hee.
