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.

As promised, we read some Mercy and Narwhal this week! I just love both of these series so much and so happy to read the new Mercy piglet picture book, too–a origin story of our favorite porcine wonder. Also, peanut Narwhal is ADORABLE! Trent also picked out a Pete the Cat book which made me so happy because he has been not wanting to read Pete books.
We finished A Bear Called Paddington! Yay! I think it was a little too long of an audiobook without read along text, but we enjoyed it overall. Then Trent picked out Inspector Flytrap to read next. It is a read along on Hoopla, and he LOVES them. The sloth throughout is definitely his favorite. Angleberger and Bell are hilarious together!
Three upcoming titles!
- Roll With It by Jamie Sumner is a story of a baking-fanatic who moves to a small town that is not very equip to deal with her wheelchair but a rough start does not always indicate the future.
- The second Kitten Construction Company was just as cute and funny as the first. I love this story of inclusion!
- Oh, what a mash up!!!! Mighty Jack and Zita the Space Girl by Ben Hatke is everything readers will want and more! And it made me want to go back and read both series again!
- The Bridge Home by Padma Venkatraman follows Viji and Rukku as the flee their abusive home to live on the streets of Chennai.
- Fear of Missing Out by Kate McGovern is Astrid’s story of living when she finds out she is dying.
Ricki is away on maternity leave and will return mid-June. Happy reading!
