It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? #IMWAYR 6/10/24


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.

Happy reading!

It’s my week off! 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.


This week, I finished the third book in the Court of Thorns and Roses series. I think I’ll take a break before I continue forward, but I’ve enjoyed the series! I don’t typically like high fantasy, but I’ve really enjoyed the way Sarah J. Maas worldbuilds.

My oldest son and I have been racing each other to finish The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan. He was extremely hesitant to read a fantasy, but he felt very connected to the main character, Percy, so he gave it a try. He was reading for hours at a time! I hadn’t read this book in over a decade, so I enjoyed rereading it!



I just snagged a bunch of new ARCs from my office, and I plan to get started on those this weekend!

  1. That’s so lovely that your son resonated with Percy Jackson, Ricki! It’s been a bajillion years since I read those books, but I loved them once too. Also, for last week’s posts, I literally came over here from a review of Camp Prodigy, so I enjoyed checking out the author’s guest post! Thank you both so much for sharing and for hosting us!
