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!


Thursday: Promise Boys by Nick Brooks



This is my week off! I will return next week!

To learn more about any of these books, check out my read bookshelf on Goodreads.


I REREAD Firekeeper’s Daughter by Angeline Boulley because I am teaching it this week. I’ve read this book three times now, and it holds up each time!

My oldest son and I really love these Unsolved Case Files books by Tom Sullivan. We can’t wait for the third one to come out! It was a lot of fun read Escape at 10,000 Feet. I wasn’t aware of this historical story, but my partner told me it is famous. I guess I missed it somehow!

My middle son loves this book, Thunder Cluck: Smart vs. Strong by Jill Esbaum. It’s a fun story, and I love early readers in the graphic novel form!

My book club reads adult (rather than young adult) books, so I get looped into an adult book every month now. This month, we read Pip Williams’ The Dictionary of Lost Words. I wish I’d known it was somewhat based on a true story before I started reading it! The author’s note at the end was great. I loved the book, but admittedly, it took me some time to get into it.

Tuesday: Nonfiction Picture Book Round Up!: The Universe in You by Jason Chin; Of Walden Pond by Lesa Cline-Ransome, illustrated by Ashley Benham-Yazdani; Polar Bear by Candace Fleming, illustrated by Eric Rohmann; We’re Not Weird by Michael Garland; & The Science of Light by Margaret Peot

  1. The D.B. Cooper story was huge when I was in middle school. There’s another similar book about the Gardener Museum Heist that was fascinating. On the down side, my students keep losing these books!
