It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?
Sharing Picture Books, Early Readers, Middle Grade Books, and Young Adult Books for All Ages!

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly blog hop co-hosted by Unleashing Readers and Teach Mentor Texts which focuses on sharing books marketed for children and young adults. It offers opportunities to share and recommend books with each other.

The original IMWAYR, with an adult literature focus, was started by Sheila at Book Journeys and is now hosted by Kathryn at The Book Date.

We encourage you to write your own post sharing what you’re reading, link up below, leave a comment, and support other IMWAYR bloggers by visiting and commenting on at least three of the other linked blogs.

Happy reading!

Our Schneider deliberation is this weekend, so I am rereading and quickly and thoroughly as I can! See you on the other side!


Every Body Looking by Candice Iloh deserves all of the praise it has been receiving. I listened to it on audio and found myself pausing and quietly listening to each word. I loved this book.

When I told two colleagues that I was about to listen to Grown by Tiffany D. Jackson on audio, they both warned me that it was a tough read. Tiffany D. Jackson does not hold back any punches with this book. It sucked me in from the very first words. If you haven’t read this book, I insist that you do.

Lindsay Ward is one of my favorite children’s book authors, so I was so thrilled to see this new book Scooper and Dumper. Ahh, it is so delightful. All three of my kids (20mo, 4yo, and 7yo) loved this one and couldn’t get enough of it. Review to come this Thursday!



I just got three of my ALAN e-galleys in, and I am REALLY excited to start them! YAY!


Thursday: Scooper and Dumper by Lindsay Ward

Saturday: Sofia’s Kids’ Corner: The Amelia Six by Kristin L. Gray

  1. I’m going to see if I can get to Grown by Tiffany D. Jackson on audiobook, this month. Sounds wonderful. Thanks for the shares and for hosting #imwayr — hope you both have a wonderful week!

  2. Ricki – I added Grown and Every Body Looking to my #mustreadin2021 list.
    Kellee – really looking forward to the upcoming ALA Awards! Can’t wait to hear the books you’ve been discussing!
