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.

I am back from SAN DIEGO, and what a wonderful vacation it was! And now back to the regularly scheduled program:
This week with Trent, we read primarily Fly Guy books because he checked out a BUNCH from the public library. He even read a couple to me! I’m so proud of his reading progress!
- Elizabeth Acevedo’s upcoming YA novel-in-verse is just as special and brilliant as her first two novels. It delves into so much–family, identity, economy, womanhood, and sisters. Be excited to read it!
- I love that Ellen Hopkins wrote a middle grade that will soon be published! Closer to Nowhere does what her YA novels do, discuss topics that too many people are afraid to discuss, but just for a younger audience. You’ll want to read this one, too!
I am with my sister-in-law and brother-in-law this weekend, so I’ll share more next week!
- Slowly but surely reading: The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan
(I should finish it this week hopefully!)
- Listening: Everlasting Rose by Dhonielle Clayton
(I’ll probably finish this this week also!)
- After that, I have so many choices! Schneider reading will become very real soon, so I am trying to get some non-Schneider reading in as much as I can 🙂
Tuesday: Dream Big, Little Scientists Michelle Schaub, Illustrated by Alice Potter
Thursday: Trent’s Favorite Reads as of his 6th Birthday
Sunday: “Daylight” by Barbara Dee, Author of Maybe He Just Likes You
