It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? From Picture Books to YA!
It’s Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme started by Sheila at Book Journeys and now hosted by Kathryn at The Book Date. 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!
Kellee and Jen, of Teach Mentor Texts, 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
This week was not a very successful reading week. I read every day but not for as long as I wanted to, so I just didn’t finish anything. I did go to see Steve Martin and Martin Short though! If you have a chance, don’t miss it!
I’ve finished most of the coursework for my classes, so my pleasure reading is much more open now! Phew! Once I get the Spring grading done, I will feel even more accomplished!
The Nest by Kenneth Oppel was a creepy book. I loved every minute of it and highly recommend it!
All American Boys by Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely. What a fabulous book. I am so glad that it is so well-loved by other readers. I listened to the audio, and it smacked me in the face. I’ll be adopting this book for curriculum.
This Week’s Expeditions
I’m currently reading:
Camp Rolling Hills by Stacy Davidowitz which is a drama-filled summer camp story.
My plan this week is to finish Camp Rolling Hills and hopefully its sequel also. Happy reading this week!
I’ve been savoring Invisible Fault Lines by Kristen-Paige Madonia. I look forward to reviewing it next week. It’s excellent.
