It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 10/14/13



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: I started Doll Bones and am really liking it yet. Still in the exposition (loving the kids!), but love how it is written. I also read the picture books we’re reviewing this week: Scary Places Map Book, Night Horse, Now Open the BoxThe Scary Places Map Book was a reread and I just love how fun it is—I look forward to sharing it and the others with you this week.

Ricki: This week, I read Man Made Boy by Jon Skovron. High school English Teachers will particularly love the connections this one has with FrankensteinThe Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and classic mythology. Check out my post on Thursday for more information about the book!

This Week’s Expeditions

Kellee: I am going to finish Doll Bones, and then my next book is My Sister Jodie  by Jacqueline Wilson. Jacqueline Wilson is a well-loved UK MG author and I look forward to being introduced to her. [I still haven’t worked on my presentations for NCTE yet, so I need to get on those too!]

Ricki: I am going to read Now Open the Box by Dorothy Kunhardt, a classic children’s book that has been republished, and then I am going to read Jacqueline Wilson’s Hetty FeatherKellee and I are excited to read and learn about this beloved author. I also started reading the ARC of Reality Boy by A.S. King. I am hoping to finish that by the end of the week. So far, it is incredibly good!

  1. Snatchabook looks fun in an old-fashioned way. I plan to read it later this month. You all have mentioned so many I don’t recognize. The Scary Places Map Book sounds interesting. A.S. King is such a great writer. I am looking forward to Reality Boy.

  2. Jacqueline Wilson seems to be mentioned a lot this week. I wonder what I’m missing out with her and her books. Now Open the Box looks fascinating.

  3. Jacqueline Wilson blog tour this week, that’s what! iPad giveaway and reviews of lots of her books! Not only that, but remember to nominate your favorite books of the past year for the Cybils awards! (

  4. The Scary Places Map Book is one I’m sure to find. I looked it up-sounds very fun! Doll Bones-still on the list, but maybe soon. I’m also reading Jacqueline Wilson’s books, & enjoying their different kind of British flavor! Looking forward to seeing your posts too!

  5. Kellee Enjoy Doll Bones. I’m anxiously awaiting the paperback release so that we can purchase multiple copies for our Student Book club. Ricki – I am such a fan of A.S. King – Reality Boy is on my TBR list!

  6. Looking forward to learning more about Now Open This Box!

    I haven’t done IMWAYR for awhile. But then something reading-related happened when I was reading aloud to my daughter today. I figured this reading community might be able to relate.
