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.

  • More Mr. Putter and Tabby from Cynthia Rylant! I just love these books and so does Trent.
  • I mentioned to Josh Funk that Albie Newton was the one of his books we didn’t have, and VIOLA it ends up at our house. I just love Josh’s books. They’re so fun but also have good messages. This one is no different.
  • I cannot wait to read the second book in Hope Larson’s Compass South series. This story of two twins on a crazy sea and land adventure.
  • Oscar the Octopus by Matthew Van Fleet takes us through the months and fun sea creatures. Trent and I had a great conversation about where these creatures’ habitats are and where we think the Oscar lives.
  • Lenny’s Book of Everything by Karen Foxlee is about Lenny Spink. “Her little brother, Davey, suffers from a rare form of gigantism and is taunted by other kids and turned away from school because of his size.”


I am with extended family this weekend, so I am unable to post, but I hope you all have a wonderful week!



  • Reading: Serious Moonlight by Jenn Bennett

  1. So many of these books are new to me!I went off to read about Lenny’s Book of Everything and ended up lost in scientific details about gigantism – something I had no idea about before today. Isn’t being a reader the best?!

  2. Wow, that’s quite a talk to just mention a book you don’t have an BOOM it suddenly appears. Please teach me your ways! 😉 And my gusy loved The Adventures of Captain Underpants. That’s one series that will have to remain in my house until the kids are grown up and can fight over who gets it. Have a great week!
