It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? #IMWAYR 2/3/20

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.


Tuesday: In-Class Youth Media Award Reactions by Ricki

I haven’t been able to blog really in January, so I have so much to catch you up on! If I was to share everything I read, it would be a super long post, so I think the easiest is to just share a link to my 2020 Goodreads challenge so far:

Most of January, I read Mr. Putter and Tabby by Cynthia Rylant with Trent and reread books for the Schneider Award, but this last week, since the ALA YMA, I’ve been reading some things I have wanted to catch up on:

And they were all brilliant. All HIGHLY recommended.


Oh, I love these books, Kellee! I am unable to post this week because an evil cold/cough with a fever is running its path through my family. I am trying to do some extra work because I think I’ll need to stay home tomorrow with (at least) one of them! Thanks for understanding!



(Finally!) Reading: The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan

Listening: Everlasting Rose by Dhonielle Clayton

I am so sorry to say that I’ll be gone again next week; I’ll tell you why the week after!

  1. I just learned of Say Her Name for the first time, today. So I hope to read that one when we get it. It’s been such an exciting week in the kidlitosphere and I’ve definitely added some new titles to my list (or bumped them up, for sure). Thank you for hosting #imwayr!!

  2. I have the Belles series to read. You’ll have to tell me more about it sometime!
    Ricki, Hope your house is germ free soon! Never fun.
