It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 6/24/13

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...you just might discover the next “must-read” book!
Kellee Moye, of Unleashing Readers, and I 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 visit at least three of the other kidlit book bloggers that link up and leave comments for them.  


Announcements: 
Kellee's new blog with Ricki Ginsberg, Unleashing Readers, is live today! I enjoyed working with Kellee for the last two years. We have done a lot of great things together at Teach Mentor Texts and I'm so appreciative to have had the time to collaborate so closely with her. From visiting Unleashing Readers, I can already tell she is going to build an amazing resource there. While Kellee will not be blogging at Teach Mentor Texts any more, we will be co-hosting the It's Monday! What Are You Reading? meme. You can add your link at Teach Mentor Texts or at Unleashing Readers and it will be added to the same list. I wish Kellee the best! Make sure you head over to Unleashing Readers to visit!

Congratulations Erin and thank you again to Kristen Kittscher for the signed book to giveaway!

Last Week's Book Adventures:
Jen Says: Teachers Write is here! I'm so excited. I thought I was going to read Write Away but Save the Cat! Goes to the Movies came in at the library so I read that instead. I'm seriously in love with the ideas in Save the Cat! and this second book clarifies those ideas. Loved them both and am so anxious to get to work on revising now. I finished listening to Eon and I started listening to Eleanor & Park. I'm loving it already and anxious to see what is going to happen between the two now that I'm about half way in. Yesterday, I read through a great stack of picture books, many that I'll be reviewing in the next few weeks.
Kellee Says: It is with excitement and a heavy heart that I have to say: Today is my final day on Teach Mentor Texts. Jen and I have decided to part ways and today I am starting my new blog Unleashing Readers with my friend, Ricki.  Jen and I will continue to host IMWAYR together and will periodically post reviews together. I hope you hop on over to Unleashing Readers to see what we have going on there.

Upcoming Book Adventures: 
Jen Says: I'm going to continue listening to Eleanor & Park (yay!). I'm still reading the text book for one of the courses I'm taking this summer (not so yay...) but I did start The Center of Everything by Linda Urban and Lonely Hearts Club by Elizabeth Eulberg and I hope to keep reading them. For one of my courses this summer I have to read Flipped by Wendelin Van Draanen so I'll be reading that as well. I keep saying I'm going to read Popular Clone and maybe this is the week it actually happens! And, finally, Teachers Write is here and I do want to read Write Away so that's on the list, too!

Kellee Says: Please check out Unleashing Readers to find out!
