It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 10/19/2015

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 didn't read very much this last week as I was finishing up revisions on my novel. That and the busy-ness that comes with a four-day week made it hard to find time as much as I wish I could have snuggled up on the couch! When I was able to read, I spent time with Another Day by David Levithan and The Cosntruction Zone by Terry Thompson.
