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.
From now on, we're going to post our It's Monday! What Are You Reading? posts at 2:00 am eastern, 1:00 am central, 11:00pm pacific. It just gives us a little more time to get our posts up and we hope you'll understand. Other than that, everything will stay the same. We appreciate you understanding and if you have any questions, please let us know. (P.S. This isn't an April Fool's joke! xo)
Last Week's Book Adventures:
I have absolutely no idea where the week went! We had fun with friends, went downtown a few times, got a new minivan (woot!), and watched the Loyola win last weekend and lose this weekend. Oh, and we saw the Wrinkle in Time movie.
I finished my rewrite! 60,655 words. It's pretty wild to think that I wrote the first draft last July and August and that I rewrote the whole thing and have a second draft. I've never ever before scrapped a whole draft and started from new. I went back to my first draft here and there but for the most part, I started from the beginning and rewrote the whole thing. That said, I didn't get much reading done. We have one more day off tomorrow and then it will be back to our regularly scheduled life and I'm looking forward to getting back to a routine. AND, I can easily play my audiobooks through my phone and into my car speakers. Honestly, I'm going to be pinching myself for a long time because I'm just so excited to have a minivan.

Upcoming Book Adventures:
My plan this week is to read more of We Are Okay on audiobook and spend time with Aru Shah and the End of Time. I also have reading to do for class...I'm so so so close to being done with this class. Only four classes left! Of course, I still have a major final project to do and a paper to write this week but that's okay, the end is in sight!
Check back throughout the week to read these reviews/posts.
