It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 10/31/2016

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. 

Announcements:
Have you seen that the Nerdy Book Club has a podcast? I'm not a super-regular listener of podcasts but I've enjoyed each and every episode from The Nerdy Bookcast so far. And at nErDcamp this summer I got to read one of my favorite Nerdy Book Club posts for the podcast. It was posted this weekend: All Books Count is the name of the episode if you'd like to check it out. I also recently shared a review of Also an Octopus by Maggie Tokuda-Hall and illustrated by Benji Davies at Nerdy Book Club too. 


Last Week's Book Adventures:
Last week, I read mostly with my kids. Peanut and I are still reading Wonder and he's so into it. We've had lots of good discussion and it's been so cool. He also zipped through Ghosts so now he's given it back to me so I can read it. I'm loving it as much as he did. He said it's the first book he read that he really wanted to read and couldn't stop reading. So cool. 

Afterwards, we went and looked through all the graphic novels we have and he decided he's going to read Sisters now. While we were looking at graphic novels, my six-year-old joined us and we read most of Bird and Squirrel this weekend. I love it so much! 

Also, I'm still reading Launch for book club and it's been great discussing with colleagues. 

Upcoming Book Adventures: 
Um, I'm trying last week again...it was just a whirlwind of a week! I'm hoping to keep reading Wonder and to explore graphic novels with my kids while also getting to Be Light Like a Bird and Root Beer Candy and Other Miracles.
