It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? #IMWAYR 5/6/19

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.

  1. There are so many new books coming out. I don’t think I’ll ever catch up. The Atlas of Monsters sounds quite appealing! Thanks, Kellee. Have a great week!

  2. I just requested We Are (Not) Friends from my library. Looks like a cute picture book! Thanks for sharing and have a terrific week!

  3. Wow, what a great variety of books you are reading this week! I am interested in The Upside of Unrequited so will have to check out the post on Wed. And I loved, loved, loved Paddington Bear when I was a kid and enjoyed reading his books to my sons, too.

    Enjoy your books this week!
