It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 6/30/14

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 just might discover your 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. 

Last Week's Book Adventures:
Jen Says: I'm writing this post from Atlanta where I am for the ISTE conference. This conference is completely huge! There are so many people here and I've been doing lost of learning. Last week, I was at the Choice Literacy retreat for contributors. It was so great to be surrounded by other writers and I received a few books that I'm excited to read. Right away, I read Show Your Work by Austin Kleon. It's amazing and I'm so excited to talk more about it. I've had a blog idea rolling around in my head since reading it...I'm sure I'll share it soon! I also received A More Beautiful Question which I have also been reading. I felt like I took a complete detour with my reading compared to where I was going last week in my IMWAYR post, but that seems to be how my life is lately. I'm just going with the flow! We did visit Little Shop of Stories with the wonderfully, kind Laurel Snyder while we were in town and I bought and read Some Bugs by Angela DeTerlizzi. It's super cute and I can't wait to get home and read it with my kiddos!

Upcoming Book Adventures: 
Jen Says: My goal is to finish A More Beautiful Question before I get home on Tuesday. We'll see how I do! I picked up The Red Rubber Ball at Work by Kevin Carroll which looks like a lot of fun so maybe I can squeeze that in, too. There are so many people to connect with here at ISTE that I'm struggling to find reading time but you never know! I do know that I pre-ordered My Teacher Is a Monster! (No I Am Not.) by Peter Brown from my local Indie so I'm going to be reading that this week with my kids. I can't wait to hear what they think, especially Peanut who loves to make paper airplanes!
