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: This last week I finished Doll Bones (SO GOOD!). Once I got into it, I couldn’t stop. I then did some rereading in preparation for this week’s reviews: Chatswood Spooks #1 & #2 and Scaredy Squirrel Prepares for Halloween. Finally, I started My Sister Jodie by Jacqueline Woodson and I look forward to finishing it.
Ricki: This week, I read The Declaration by Gemma Malley. I love dystopians, and I have always wanted to read this one, so I was excited when it was assigned in a Methods class I am observing. I decided to read it along with the students because it seemed like the perfect opportunity. My reading group loved it. I also read Reality Boy by A. S. King. She is phenomenal, isn’t she? I loved this book as much as I loved her others, and look for the review this Thursday!
This Week’s Expeditions
Kellee: This week I plan to finish My Sister Jacqueline. I then plan on reading Encyclopedia Horrifica then Halloween Hustle in preparation for more scary reviews. After that I have a pile of four books to read for ALAN and cannot wait to read them: Gorgeous by Paul Rudnick, girlchild by Tupelo Hassman, Loud Awake and Lost by Adele Griffin, and Season of the Witch by Mariah Fredericks. They should last me a couple of weeks 🙂
Ricki: This week, I also plan to read Halloween Hustle in preparation for our Halloween review day. I got caught up in books this past week, but I am definitely excited to get to Hetty Feather by Jacqueline Wilson. Also, I just started a book by my advisor, Wendy Glenn. It is awesome so far (and I say that without bias—it is very engaging, and I can’t wait for bedtime to get back to it!). You can get the manuscript for free at www.swoonreads.com.
