It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?
For readers of all ages
It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly blog hop we host which focuses on sharing what we’re reading. This Kid Lit version of IMWAYR focuses primarily on books marketed for kids and teens, but books for readers of all ages are shared. We love this community and how 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. The Kid Lit IMWAYR was co-created by Kellee & Jen at Teach Mentor Texts.
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.

This is my week off, but I’ll be back next week! To learn more about any of these books, click on any title/image to go to the book’s Goodreads page or check out my read bookshelf on Goodreads.
I am so excited to see which books are honored tomorrow in the ALA Youth Media Awards!
I finished Heaven & Earth Grocery Store by James McBride. I really loved this book and find myself recommending it often. The writing is beautiful, and I liked learning a bit more about a moment in history.
I reread Courage to Dream a third time to prepare it for the college and high school students. It stands up to the rereading, and I am still glad we chose this book.
I also read four new picture books, but I am going to record those next time because I can’t remember the titles of two of them, and they are in my office!
- Reading: Everything We Never Had by Randy Ribay
- Listening: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson
