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.

App of the Living Dead by Kim Harrington Drifters by Kevin Emerson Hope Wins by Rose Brock 5 Worlds Book 5 by Mark  Siegel The Marvellers by Dhonielle Clayton

  • Gamer Squad #3: App of the Living Dead by Kim Harrington: This one may be my favorite of the series! Kim Harrington took the same concept of video games coming to life and was able to write 3 very different stories that all were entertaining and just a joy to read. I highly recommend this trilogy for your middle grade readers.
  • Drifters by Kevin Emerson: I reviewed this last Tuesday–check it out.
  • Hope Wins by various, Edited by Rose Brock: Ricki and I will be reviewing this on June 23rd. I cannot wait to share it with you all.
  • 5 Worlds: The Emerald Gate by Mark & Alexis Seigel: I am so glad that Trent told me I HAD to finish this series because I was sure missing out by not reading the finale. The authors just packed so much punch into this series, and it quickly has become one of my favorite fantasy graphic novel series!
  • The Marvellers by Dhonielle Clayton: Wow. The Marvellers is everything the middle grade fantasy world needed and more. Clayton has been so purposeful in her pursuit of creating an inclusive magical school and looking at what a school for global magic would look like. I highly recommend the book, and also check out her interview with We Need Diverse Books (Part 1 & Part 2) because I love listening to her speak about this passion project.

  1. Kellee, all of these books look wonderful, especially the 5 Worlds series—it’s so fun that Trent talked you into reading it! And Ricki, I hope you enjoy your visit with family!

    By the way, I think the link round-up is set not to open until tomorrow the 7th, just FYI. Thank you both so much for the great post!

    • I’d read the first two of the series and he was FLABBERGASTED that I’d never finished. I’m so glad I did 🙂

      I fixed the linky–sorry about that!!!

  2. You have convinced me that I need to read The Marvellers. Luckily my library has it available as an audiobook and it should be ready soon. Unfortunately neither of my libraries has the Kevin Emerson book, but since I haven’t read anything else by him, I can try one of his earlier books while I wait.
