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: This week’s reading quantity is lower than last week, but the quality is not. I finished Hook’s Revenge by Heidi Schulz, and I was so glad I went along on that adventure! This book was my final book for my Bridging the Gender Divide: Humor and The Art of Engaging All Readers NCTE panel. I am so excited!
Ricki: I finished two INCREDIBLE books this week. First, I finished up Glory O’Brien’s History of the Future. It is both literary and engaging, and I was reminded as to why I love A.S. King so much. I was fortunate to receive an ARC of Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys. Wow, wow, wow! I was awake until 4am this morning because I couldn’t put it down. I know publishers prefer that we review books no earlier than a month before their publication date, so I will have to tie my hands to my chair to prevent this.
This Week’s Expeditions
Kellee: Now I am on to reading the books for my ALAN panel “Keeping ‘Em on the Edge of Their Seat.” First up is Undertow by Michael Buckley. I just started, but I am intrigued so far. After Undertow, I have the other books from the authors on my panel to read then I plan on rereading Eleanor and Park in preparation for the Walden Award panel at NCTE. I cannot believe how close the conference is!!!
Ricki: Kellee, how smart you were to post your panelists as your Fall TBR list! I am in the same boat as Kellee, but I don’t have a fancy link to my ALAN Workshop panel authors. This week, I am going to start with Meg Medina’s Burn, Baby, Burn. You can see the full workshop program here.
