It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 01/27/2020

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? From Picture Books to YA! 

It's Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme hosted by Kathryn at Book Date.

Last Week's Book Adventures:
I missed last week because I forgot to set up my post before I left for Guatemala. BUT I did read read two amazing books on my flights. I read Tight by Torrey Maldonado which was so good. And I also read A Large Expanse of Sea by Tahereh Mafi which was absolutely awesome. 

Upcoming Book Adventures: 
This week I'm reading The Giver graphic novel and Inward by Yung Pueblo and I'm excited for both!

Last Week's Book Adventures:
Can I be honest? The first week back from winter break kicked my butt. I pulled Sara Ahmed's Being the Change off the shelf for a lesson on circles of obligation and I read a lot of articles about the movie Black Panther and how it was so awesome but also how the people who made it felt about making it. I also reread bits of Harbor Me like Jacqueline Woodson as I made a sample one-pager to share with students. That was my reading this week. :)

Upcoming Book Adventures: 
I really do miss my audiobooks. I was on a roll with them. We'll be reading The Giver in a few weeks so I'll probably grab that to start rereading this week and making plans.

Last Week's Book Adventures:
I spent a lot of time with my family over the last two weeks and it was completely lovely. Believe it or not, I didn't do much reading. I did read more of Juliet Takes a Breath and I started Other People's Children by Lisa Delpit.

Upcoming Book Adventures: 
Hooray for 2020! I loved winter break but am excited to get back to action and back into a routine. My goal this week is to find a new audiobook to read. Any favorites to recommend?

Last Week's Book Adventures:
It's the last Monday of 2019! I've already picked out my one little word for 2020 and am excited to celebrate the new year and the new decade. Believe it or not, I've read some of Juliet Takes a Breath but I'm not done yet! And I have overdue library books so I can't check out any new audiobooks. Gr. I've gotta work on that!

Upcoming Book Adventures: 
I'm still working to finish up Juliet Take a Breath and After the Shot Drops. Happy end of 2019!

Last Week's Book Adventures:
There aren't too many Mondays left in 2019! Looking back now, the year seems to have flown by. In general it was a good year and definitely a good year for reading. This week I listened to more of The Night Circus. It's such a phenomenal book with great description but also amazing as an audiobook. 

Upcoming Book Adventures: 
My students are starting book clubs today so I'm going to be reading what they are reading so I can join in with discussions a little bit. Here's what they're reading: A Long Way Down, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Wave, Ghost Boys, and I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter. Can't wait!

Last Week's Book Adventures:
I just realized I forgot to post last week and I'm late posting this week! Ack! If you're here, thanks for being here! I've read a lot and it feels pretty awesome. So I read a couple of graphic novels: I Was Their American Dream by Maraka Gharib and The Dark Matter of Mona Starr by Laura Lee Gulledge. I also listened to Refugee by Alan Gratz, Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds (reread) and Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell. I started listening to The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern as a reread. I also have been reading When The Shot Drops by Randy Ribay. 

Upcoming Book Adventures: 
This week I'm hoping to finish up When The Shot Drops and to keep listening to The Night Circus. I have students who asked to read To Kill a Mockingbird so I said I would read it with them so we can discuss so I'm going to be reading that too.

Last Week's Book Adventures:
I finished listening to Sing, Unburied, Sing by Jesmyn Ward and it was gorgeous and sad and healing all at the same time. I started listening to Refugees by Alan Gratz and I also started reading After The Shot Drops by Randy Ribay. 

I haven't spent as much time with Milk and Honey or The Wild Robot Escapes but I still have them and hope to finish them up this week.

Upcoming Book Adventures: 
This week I'm hoping to finish up everything I started but it's quite a busy week so we'll see how it goes! I was in New York this weekend and got to visit the Strand bookstore where I picked up America Is Immigrants by Sara Novic which I'd like to explore as well.

Last Week's Book Adventures:
I finished White Fragility this week and Insignificant Events in the Life of a Cactus by Dusti Bowling. I also listened to Sadie by Courtney Summers. Whoa. It's a book version of the podcast Serial and really well done. Just as sad and definitely as intense as Monday's Not Coming but really good and worth reading. 

My younger son and I have also been listening to The Wild Robot Escapes by Peter Brown

Upcoming Book Adventures: 
I started listening to Sing, Unburied, Sing by Jesmyn Ward and have been reading Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur. I also have Refugees by Alan Gratz to listen to as well. (I feel like I'm the last person on earth who hasn't read it!)

Last Week's Book Adventures:
Okay...last week I listened to Monday's Not Coming by Tiffany D. Jackson and let me tell you, it's intense. It's a book that jumps around from the present to the past to the future and all around over and over again until you get to the big thing that happened and what happened becomes clear. It's described as a thriller about murder, neglect, and systemic racism and it truly had my heart racing. And aching. I'll be including this in my presentation at NCTE for Build Your Stack which is about intersectionality in YA. 

I also listened to Carry On by Rainbow Rowell and started listening to White Fragility. My audiobook game has been on point and I've read so many really great books these last few weeks. 

Upcoming Book Adventures: 
I'm going to keep listening to White Fragility and then I have Wayward Son on hold so I hope that comes soon! I also want to listen to Sadie by Courtney Summers if I have time.
