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: This week I finished The Forest of Hands and Teeth on audio and then decided I need a zombie-break so I listened to That Summer by Sarah Dessen. I also read Come August, Come Freedom by Gigi Amateau which is historical fiction that I really loved. If you haven't read Kel Gilligan's Daredevil Stunt Show, I highly recommend it. Super fun! I'm still reading Necromancing the Stone, just didn't have much time (again) this week!
Kellee Says: This was a rough reading week for me. I just couldn't find any book to hold my interest. I abandoned almost every book I started until I finally found Beneath a Meth Moon by Jacqueline Woodson which was a wonderful read which grabbed me from the first page and never stopped- I read it in one sitting. I also finished my audio book, The Cat Ate My Gymsuit, and I wish I'd read it when I was in high school because I think I would have really connected with Marcy. Also, I am taking part in the virtual book club discussion of Reading Amplified by Lee Ann Spillane over on Facebook and Twitter and I cannot wait to finish it as I am loving it!

Upcoming Book Adventures:
Jen Says: I still have Rotters to listen to but I also have Ghetto Cowboy and to listen to and I'm kind of in the mood for something shorter so we'll see which I actually decide to listen to. We grabbed some great-looking picture books at the library this week. Oh! I also have the second collection of Archie: The Married Life which I am so excited to read. I am also still reading Necromancing the Stone, Navigating Early and have the second The Hero's Guide to Storming the Castle that I want to read as well.
Kellee Says: Like I said, it has been an off week. I didn't even really start my new audio book, Trash, until yesterday because I was on a music kick. With that being said, I am not going to say what I hope to read yet just in case I abandon it (since I don't like to share which books I abandon). So, hopefully one of them will grab my interest- we'll find out next week!
