It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 5/6/13

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: Last week I finished listening to The Power of Habit which was really interesting. I find myself noticing habits and routines differently now! I did start rereading From What I Remember... but have been enjoying it and taking my time. It was a nice relaxing week. I said I was going to do Screen Free Week as much as I could, and I did pretty good. My book pics even took a break and it was nice to have the break. We still read, of course, but no book pics to share. 

Kellee Says: This week was a bit slow for me, but it wasn't because the books I read were slow, it is just that I am finding myself too busy to read :( This week I finished up rereading Olivia Twisted by Vivi Barnes and I'll be meeting up with her soon to talk about a Teacher's Guide for the book. It'll be a great addition to a high school- wonderful parallel to Oliver Twist and some great discussion topics. I also read Scaredy Squirrel Goes Camping and I think it is my favorite Scaredy Squirrel book yet! Finally, in honor of Free Comic Book Day, I read Chris Eliopoulos's Mr. Puzzle's Super Collection! which I received from Netgalley which is a super children's comic!

Upcoming Book Adventures: 
Jen Says: I'm going to keep on rereading From What I Remember.... I have the book Quiet to listen to on audio. I also have a few novels we'll be reviewing soon that I'm going to start reading. I have my eye on Felony Bay to read next!

Kellee Says: I have had Ask the Passengers on deck all week, but just haven't started that yet- I'll definitely be starting it tonight. I am still listening to my David Sedaris audio and hopefully will finish it this week. Happy reading!
