It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? From Picture Books to YA!
It’s Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journeys. 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!
Jen Vincent, of Teach Mentor Texts, and Kellee 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
Kellee: A valley of reading to make up for my peak last week—no finished books this week. I blame being sick this weekend, because I usually get most of my reading done on Friday nights and Saturdays. Plus side, I am reading a really great book—Guys Read: Other Worlds edited by Jon Scieszka which, so far, is my favorite Guys Read. I’m really enjoying every story so far!
Ricki: This week, I finished listening to Grave Mercy by R.L. LaFevers. It was dark, mysterious, and purely wonderful. If you like fantasy, I highly recommend it. I listened to a read-aloud of The Other Side by Jacqueline Woodson. This one brought me close to tears. I loved this children’s book. Lastly, I finished Trash by Andy Mulligan. I’ve always wanted to read this one, and I am glad that I did. All three books were great reads.
This Week’s Expeditions
Kellee: This week I am going to finish Guys Read: Other Worlds and then start Stained by Cheryl Rainfield. I also have a pile of picture books I want to read this week. Should be a good reading week!
Ricki: After my husband falls asleep, I steal the Kindle each night and read a bit more of Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater. I also just started The Spectacular Now by Tim Tharp. I read this while my husband has the Kindle. 🙂 Lastly, I just downloaded Enchanted by Alethea Kontis to my phone. This was a free AudioSync book this summer. I plan to start this one on the drive to school tomorrow!
