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:
We had our first snow day on Friday! It's been a while since we had a snow day and it made for a long weekend at home. We read more of Laura Shovan's Takedown and Peanut is really loving it. I finished David Elliott's Bull - definitely YA but also definitely fun. I would have loved reading this in high school along with the more traditional mythology we read. It's like Hamilton meets the Minotaur and I'll share more thoughts this week. Little Bean and I also read Comic Squad: Recess and talked about how to move through the text and the importance of looking at the words and the pictures. I mentioned that I know some teachers who try reading graphic novels and they don't know how to read it and he giggled.

Upcoming Book Adventures:
I got soooooo much writing done last week...the end of this rewrite is totally in sight and I have a paper due for class on Wednesday so I'll be writing a ton but I hope to read I Am Alfonso Jones and I'd really like to start The Education of Margot Sánchez too. I'm also so excited to see what books win awards this year. Can't wait!
Check back throughout the week to read these reviews/posts.
