It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? From Picture Books to YA!
It’s Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journeys. It is a great way to recap what you read and/or reviewed the previous week and to plan out your reading and reviews for the upcoming week. It’s also a great chance to see what others are reading right now…you just might discover the next “must-read” book!
Jen Vincent, of Teach Mentor Texts, and Kellee decided to give It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? a kidlit focus. If you read and review books in children’s literature – picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels, anything in the world of kidlit – join us! We love this meme and think you will, too.
We encourage everyone who participates to support the blogging community by visiting at least three of the other book bloggers that link up and leave comments for them.

Last Week’s Journeys
Kellee: Last week I finished The Cure for Dreaming by Cat Winters. Wow! Winters sure knows how to tell a compelling, bit-odd, unique story! So glad I read it, and I have loved talking about it with my student who also loved it.
With Trent, we read Fox in Socks by Dr. Seuss over a couple of days. Man, what complicated tongue twisters! But they are actually kind of fun to read. Next to that, we reread whatever book he chose for us.
Ricki: I have been writing a grant related to young adult literature, so much of my time has been spent on that. I am looking to do some pretty hefty research and want to pay my participants. I did read one fun book I received from Macmillan called Presidential Misadventures: Poems that Poke Fun at the Man in Charge. The book features a short poem and humorous drawing about each president. I learned a lot and giggled quite a few times. I read this one aloud to my son and husband, and they enjoyed it. 🙂
This Week’s Expeditions
Kellee: I am currently listening to The Family Romanov by Candace Fleming, and I am just enthralled in the history of the Romanov family. It is just as juicy as any fiction book out there! I also am about halfway through Breakfast Served Anytime by Sarah Combs. I really like the smart, funny female lead in this one. I look forward to finishing it this week.
Ricki: I am still reading Life in Outer Space by Melissa Keil and listening to East of Eden by John Steinbeck (22 or 23 discs, so it is a long endeavor).
