It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? #IMWAYR 8/12/19

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.

Tuesday: Student Voices!: Pros and Cons About Digital Schools by Maelynn

I’m back!!!
Thank you so much for understanding about my summer. It has been an eventful one. First was ALA then we moved then we were out of town for 16 days and then we had the loss in our family. On top of that…

I am now the librarian at my school! AH! I am so excited (and nervous)!
So that meant I had to move at school also.

Now, I have been away from IMWAYR since June 17th, so I am just going to share the images of the books I read (top are the most recently read). Check out Goodreads to see more about them:


Wow, Kellee! I can’t get over that list!

My son is obsessed with High Five by Adam Rubin. He loves the interactive nature—he gets to create a silly chant and high five the characters on the page.

All three of my boys were cuddled in the bed and captivated by Moonshot by Brian Floca. I think he is one of my favorite picture book authors. I am in awe of his talent.



Currently Reading: Six Goodbyes We Never Said by Candace Ganger

Currently Listening: Planet Earth is Blue by Nicole Panteleakos

Currently Reading with Trent: Science Comics: Polar Bears by Jason Viola


I was in a bit of a reading rut post-baby. If I Was Your Girl by Meredith Russo is pulling me out of it. I am really looking forward to listening to the rest of this book!


Tuesday: Student Voices: “We Shouldn’t Be…” (A Poem) by Monika & Jordan with an image by Serine

Thursday: Moonshot: The Flight of Apollo 11 by Brian Floca

  1. Kellee~ That’s a LOT to do in one summer. Wow. You have so many wonderful titles on your list, so I’m glad you were able to keep up with reading during all the craziness. Congratulations on your new job, too!

    Ricki~ I totally thought the “High Five” image was in response to Kellee. LOL!!!!!!!! I’m going to try to hunt down Moonshot by Brian Floca as I beg my littles will love this one, too!

    Hope you both have a great week!

  2. Congratulations on your new position. I’m sure you’ll do a wonderful job! Love your list of reads! Thanks for sharing and have a great start to your school year!

  3. Kellee, I feel you. I did something similar over on my post. It’s been a busy, busy summer. Yay for your new role. I Wish You All the Best and Love From A to Z are two of my favorites that you read. I need to get my hands on Guts.

    Ricki, I also enjoyed Moonshot. Floca is good at picture books. If I Was Your Girl is an emotional read.
