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.

Sorry for still being away from the blog, but with the ALA Youth Media Awards right around the corner, I am deep in my reading for the Schneider Family Award, so I will be back next week!
I saw some favorited lists for the Printz, and I got ambitious and started five of those books this week. I did not finish any yet. Whoops! I am so excited for the YMA announcements tomorrow!
I reread #NotYourPrincess by Lisa Charleyboy and Mary Beth Leatherdale, which I am writing a paper about, and I reread Piecing Me Together by Renée Watson, which I am teaching the next two weeks!
I am probably going to stop everything I am reading to read whichever books make the YMA lists. That’s typically what happens for me after the awards are announced.
Tuesday: In-Class Youth Media Award Reactions
