It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? From Picture Books to YA!
It’s Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journeys. 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!
Jen Vincent, of Teach Mentor Texts, and Kellee 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.

Last Week’s Journeys
Kellee: I’ve had a pretty great reading week! I read two novels, a nonfiction book, and a picture book… not bad 🙂 The two novels I read were quite different: My Sister Jodie by Jacqueline Wilson was a realistic fiction novel about two sisters trying to find themselves and Gorgeous by Paul Rudnick. The nonfiction book was called Encyclopedia Horrifica and I can see why so many of my students are drawn to it. Finally, for our Halloween review, I read Halloween Hustle by Charlotte Gunnufson.
Ricki: This week was a busy, busy week for me. I had to finish midterms and then I had my baby shower. 🙂 I read the manuscript of In This Moment by Wendy Glenn on www.swoonreads.com (a Macmillan website). It was fantastic. If you like meaningful, quality YA romances, this is a great book for you. My review will be up next week. I am just about done with Hetty Feather by Jacqueline Wilson. It is such a fun story. I can’t wait for Kellee’s and my double review this week!
This Week’s Expeditions
Kellee: Gorgeous was the first book in my 4 books pile in preparation for the ALAN Workshop. Next is girlchild by Tupelo Hussman followed by Loud Awake and Lost by Adele Griffin then Season of the Witch by Mariah Fredericks. I hope to finish them all this week! *Fingers Crossed*
Ricki: As I get more and more exhausted, my reading seems to fall. I have wondered if I should start reading my YA books to my belly. I may start with Halloween Hustle, which will be our Halloween review book. I also want to start If You Find Me by Emily Murdoch. I have heard it is quite good. Has anyone read this one yet?
