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.

I haven’t yet gotten a good balance of work and reading. I’m reading every day but not much because I fall asleep… I’m chugging along, and I know that time will get on my side again soon!
I loved Little Man Little Man by James Baldwin. It is his one book written for young people, and I am so excited that it is being printed. The illustrations and the writing are both stunning. This book is a gift to the world.
I REREAD If I Ever Get Out of Here by Eric Gansworth. I love this book. After the brave women came forward about Sherman Alexie and I learned more about what he has done with Native authors, I decided to make the switch. This book was a naturally easy choice. My TAs told me they enjoyed reading it even more than True Diary, and I am really looking forward to hearing my students’ reactions tomorrow!
I reread Undocumented: A Worker’s Fight by Duncan Tonatiuh for the second time this week. I love this book—from the words to the illustrations to the accordion-style printing.
LOVING both of these! I think I’ll be able to finish Vincent and Theo by Deborah Heiligman this week (I have about 2 hours left in the audiobook), and I hope to make a dent in The House of Hades.
I am still listening to The Nowhere Girls by Amy Reed. When I first started it, I wasn’t sure if it would be a good audio book. But it kicked into high gear, and it is making for a wonderful listening experience.
