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.

Journey of the Pale Bear by Susan Fletcher was even better than it sounded! I can’t wait to review it for you!
Another Day by David Levithan was quite interesting because it looked at the exact time frame as Every Day but from Rhiannon’s point of view. I look forward to reading book 3 now to see where it all goes.
I REREAD Piecing Me Together by Renée Watson in preparation to teach it this week. I am really excited to talk about it with my college students. My fingers are crossed that they will love it as much as I do.
My son and I finished our read-aloud of The Super Life of Ben Braver. This book makes an incredible read-aloud for a 4-year-old, even though it is written for upper elementary schoolers, in particular. My son absolutely loved it and can’t wait for the next book to be released in March!
I adored King Ben and Sir Rhino by Eric Sallier and look forward to reviewing it later this week!
I’ve only start The Young Elites (audiobook) but am not far enough to have an opinion quite yet (though I will say it reminds me a bit of Graceling). The others will hopefully be read this week!
I also wanted to extend a formal apology for not stopping by as many blogs on Mondays for the next couple of months (and last couple of weeks) as I always intend to. Trent has started t-ball, and practice is on Mondays, so it really adds another layer of rushing to the first day of the week. If I missed/miss your blog, please know that I love you being part of the community—thank you for being you! You are appreciated.
I am still reading Sadie by Courtney Summers. Ordinarily, this book wouldn’t make it more than a couple of days with me. The suspense is phenomenal. Yet, I am also reading dozens of articles to prepare a manuscript that I am writing, so I am trying to balance my reading.
