It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 10/29/12

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…who knows, you might discover that next “must read” book!
After doing the meme for a couple of weeks, we realized this would be a fun meme to start up with a kidlit focus - anyone reading and reviewing books in children's literature - it can be picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels, you name it in the world of kidlit and it's in! We have loved being a part of this meme and we hope you do too!  We encourage everyone participating to go and visit the other kidlit book bloggers that link up and to comment on as many posts as you can. We love talking books and believe in sharing and discussing what we're reading. We hope you join us!

Last Week's Book Adventures:
Jen Says: It's amazing how we get to Monday and I have to think back on the previous week and feel at a loss! Things are still so busy and hectic in my life that it's hard to remember what I've done because so much has happened! I did do lots of reading this week. I finished the audio of Amy and Roger's Epic Detour and then I ended up listening to The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Goth Girl by Barry Lyga. An interesting look into a 15-year-old boys mind! I also read Hattie Ever After by the talented Kirby Larson and loved it! It was my first 2013 read and it didn't disappoint. I'm super late starting to read The Infects but we're reviewing it on Tuesday so I will be reading nonstop tomorrow night!

Kellee Says: Another good book week! I finished listening to Ghetto Cowboy by G. Neri and loved it so much! I bought it immediately and booktalked it as soon as I could because I think it is a brilliant book (and it was checkout before the end of the day). I read another book from the Seven series from Orca publishing, Jump Cut by Ted Staunton, and I really like how each book has a different personality yet are connected. I think I'll do a blog post about the series because I think it is so clever.  I also purchased Brody's Ghost: Book 3 last weekend because I really enjoyed the first two and I was so upset to find out that it ends in a HORRIBLE cliffhanger and there isn't a release date for Book 4 yet. And thanks to a 3 day weekend, this weekend I finished Redwing by Holly Bennett, a unique post-apocalyptic novel with magical realism, and Mira's Diary by Marissa Moss, a time travel middle grade novel filled with history (I loved it!). Lastly, I am so glad that I finally got to Boy + Bot by Ame Dyckman. A great story and wonderful illustrations- I loved it and cannot wait to get my own copy.

Upcoming Book Adventures: 
Jen Says: I'll be reading The Infects tonight so I can review it tomorrow. (That's my life lately...there's just isn't time to get ahead. Send along that time-stop button if you have one, I so could use it right about now.) I'll also be reading Personal Effects this week. I'm not sure what I'll listen to on audio...I know I have Eldest in my car and it might be the right week to delve into some fantasy listening. Happy reading, everyone!

Kellee Says: Currently I am reading Samantha Sutton and the Labyrinth of Lies by Jordan Jacobs and really like the concept. I am not far enough in to have much opinion next to that. I plan on finishing it and reading Audition & Subtraction by Amy Fellner Dominy this week then who knows. With my ears, I am reading The Frog Princess by E.D. Baker and it is pretty darn funny. If I finish it, I plan on listening to Dark Life by Kat Falls (though when I car pool we are going to start listening to The Giver when we drive together in preparation of reading the 4th book together).
