It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 11/14/2016

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:
I'm still reading Wonder with Peanut and Little Bean and I are almost done with the 5th Lunch Lady. We're still reading and discussing Launch as a book study. I also started Rising Strong by Brené Brown and it's amazing. So so so so good. 

Upcoming Book Adventures: 
This week I'm excited to keep reading with my kids and to keep reading Rising Strong and Launch. I also bought I Am Here Now: A Creative Mindfulness Guide And Journal by The Mindfulness Project that I'm hoping to start working in.
