It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (2/23/15)

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 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:
I finished listening to Rain Reign by Ann M. Martin. It's completely lovely and wholeheartedly recommended. I spent a lot of time rereading newspaper articles for my picture book research and then have been doodling away with The Doodle Revolution by Sunni Brown. I didn't get as much reading done as I had hoped and I didn't get my reviews up last week but I was productive in other ways and that at least feels great.

Upcoming Book Adventures: 
I'm still waiting for my audiobook to come in at the library so I might have to go pick something else while I wait...but I have no idea what that will be! I'm planning to continue reading The Doodle Revolution and to spend more time with X: A Novel by Ilyasah Shabazz with Kekla Magoon. I also have some more research to do and it's really fun! It's awesome to be researching something I'm super excited about.

By the time next Monday rolls around, it will be March! I'm planning to participate in the Slice of Challenge with Two Writing Teachers where I post a Slice of Life post e.v.e.r.y.d.a.y. We'll see how I do. I've joined in once before and it was definitely a challenge but I remember being proud that I did it and knowing that I learned about myself in general but also about myself as a writer. I'll probably share less book reviews in March but I do have a couple blog tours I'm part of and I'll always and forever do the IMWAYR posts to share what I'm reading. Anyone else doing the SOL challenge?

This Week's Reviews:
Check back throughout the week to read these reviews/posts.
