It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 04/18/2016
It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? From Picture Books to YA!
It's Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme hosted by Kathryn at Book Date. 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:
This week, I enjoyed reading my finished copy of The Wild Robot by Peter Brown but I'm still finishing it up so my review will go up this week. I'm fascinated by Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer and really enjoying it.
Click on any picture above to go read my review/post.
Upcoming Book Adventures:
This week I'll finish up The Wild Robot and continue reading Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. And then, because I usually reread favorite in April, I think I'm going to reread The Pull of Gravity by Gae Polisner.
