It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? #IMWAYR 10/1/18

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.

  • I finished listening to The Young Elites, and if you have read it you know about the tragedy at the end of the book, and I just don’t know if I want to continue the series with the loss at the end. I just don’t know where the series is going to go. But I guess that is why I also need to read the series….
  • I read K.A. Holt’s new book. It comes out next year. You’ll want to read it. I promise!
  • AMULET EIGHT CAME OUT!!!!! My students and I have been WAITING for this book, and I will tell you that it does not disappoint, and now we are waiting for #9….


Hi, all! I am away today because my sister is visiting from NYC for my son’s birthday! Happy reading!



  • Currently on Chapter 6 of Winnie-the-Pooh with Jim and Trent. It is so much fun to read, and I love that Trent is loving it!
  • I cannot wait to start Upside-Down Magic: Weather or Not which I’ll start on my drive to school today. I love the rest of the series, so I know this one will be no different.
  • I started The Dollar Kids this weekend, and I hope I love it as much as Jennie Smith raved about it to me.

  1. Kellee~ Oh NO!! I had hoped to read The Young Elites, but I don’t know about much of anything in the storyline. I can imagine how a major loss would impact whether you want to continue with the series. Aaron has been talking about AMULET and so I have that series on my list — I must be REALLY behind the times. I’ve also heard really good things about The Dollar Kids, so I’m looking forward to it very soon!

    Ricki~ I hope you have a wonderful visit with family!!

    Congratulations to Jana on the giveaway WIN!!

  2. I’m always glad you post last week’s posts – I remember to go back and visit them!
    I can’t remember why I wasn’t a fan of The Young Elites, but I never went back and read more in the series.

  3. Can’t wait to hear about “Orphaned” & your view of “The Dollar Kids”, Kellee. I read Winnie-the-Pooh to my children too. It is wonderful. Hope the birthday celebrations were terrific, Ricki.

  4. I think that’s why I didn’t go on and read more of The Young Elites.
    I’m very sad that my library does not have Weather or Not yet available in audio format. I adore that series and am seriously green with envy that you are about to start this.
    Happy reading to both of you this week.
