It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 01/27/2020

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 missed last week because I forgot to set up my post before I left for Guatemala. BUT I did read read two amazing books on my flights. I read Tight by Torrey Maldonado which was so good. And I also read A Large Expanse of Sea by Tahereh Mafi which was absolutely awesome. 

Upcoming Book Adventures: 
This week I'm reading The Giver graphic novel and Inward by Yung Pueblo and I'm excited for both!

Last Week's Book Adventures:
Can I be honest? The first week back from winter break kicked my butt. I pulled Sara Ahmed's Being the Change off the shelf for a lesson on circles of obligation and I read a lot of articles about the movie Black Panther and how it was so awesome but also how the people who made it felt about making it. I also reread bits of Harbor Me like Jacqueline Woodson as I made a sample one-pager to share with students. That was my reading this week. :)

Upcoming Book Adventures: 
I really do miss my audiobooks. I was on a roll with them. We'll be reading The Giver in a few weeks so I'll probably grab that to start rereading this week and making plans.

Last Week's Book Adventures:
I spent a lot of time with my family over the last two weeks and it was completely lovely. Believe it or not, I didn't do much reading. I did read more of Juliet Takes a Breath and I started Other People's Children by Lisa Delpit.

Upcoming Book Adventures: 
Hooray for 2020! I loved winter break but am excited to get back to action and back into a routine. My goal this week is to find a new audiobook to read. Any favorites to recommend?

My goal is to be anti-racist and anti-bias.

Growing up in the 80’s in a primarily white, northern Chicago suburb, my Latinx identity learned to stay quiet and not speak...
