It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? #IMWAYR 10/8/18

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 finished Garbage Island by Fred Koehler this week, and I am SO EXCITED to share it on Friday!


I am so sorry to abandon everyone for the second Monday in a row! I have a big deadline tomorrow for a writing project, so I’m unable to log all of my titles. I have a bunch of wonderful new books to share and look forward to next week!



I am almost done with both The Dollar Kids and Upside-Down Magic: Weather or Not. They are both ones that I will definitely be sharing with my students. Upside-Down Magic, the series, is so fun, but it really does make kids think about acceptance and empathy, and The Dollar Kids fits right into that same vein (though I look forward to see what the resolution is).

I am not sure what I am going to read next. I have two novels to read for potential review for the blog, one novel to read for ALAN, and at least three novels to read for NCTE! I am excited for all of them! (Though the realization that NCTE and ALAN are 6 weeks away is really hitting home!)

  1. I’ll have to check in on Friday for your review of Garbage Island. I’m intrigued by that one! NCTE is coming so fast. Hopefully, our paths will cross there, Kellee!

  2. Love what I’m hearing about Garbage Island — hope to read that soon. And I’ll have to go look up Upside-Down Magic — I’ve not read anything in the series, so I’d love to add this title to my wish list. YAY!
