It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 3/30/2020

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 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:
Oh my goodness. I thought I was going to SO MUCH reading and writing done. But I didn't. I did read some of Don't Keep Your Day Job, How do Do Nothing, This Book Is Anti-Racist, The Crossroads of Should and Must and also Whatcha Mean, What's a Zine? I have read a lot, I just haven't finished anything. 

To say I feel scattered would be an understatement. I don't just feel scattered, I feel confused and whiny and worried and uncertain and scared. I texted a friend who is a yoga teacher to ask her about grounding because I think that's what I need. I need to figure out how to feel grounded amidst all of this. I'm adding that to my reading to do this week.

Upcoming Book Adventures: 
As a teacher and a parent we're starting elearning this week so I'm not sure how that will impact my reading life. I'm definitely going to do some research on different grounding activities and try some out. Two weeks ago I repotted two plants and also started some seeds. I also went out in my back yard and turned over the dirt in some of the big pots we have. That felt good. This week I did a yoga for stress relief class that was phenomenal and I pulled out some big construction paper for brainstorming. I also am doing a paper mache project with my older son. All of this getting my hands on stuff seems to be helping me feel grounded.

Other than that, I'm going to keep on with the books i'm reading and see how it all goes. How are you all doing? I'd love to hear updates and know if you've noticed differences in your reading life. Stay well, friends!
