It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? From Picture Books to YA! 

It's Monday! What are you Reading? is a weekly blog hop I co-host with Kellee and Ricki from Unleashing ReadersThe original IMWAYR, with an adult literature focus, was started by Sheila at Book Journeys and is now hosted by Kathryn at The Book Date.

Last Week's Book Adventures:
This week I read more of Art Journal Courage and tried some self portraits. That was different and fun. I tried starting The Water Dancer but didn't get very far.

Upcoming Book Adventures: 
Last week was the end of our school year. It was a busy and emotional week and I didn't do much reading. This week I'm hoping to read The Water Dancer because my book club is starting. And I want to read Tell Me Who You Are. I also have some essays on the Internet that I want to read and study as mentor texts.

Last Week's Book Adventures:
Well...I didn't finish anything this week. I'm not even sure I did much reading this week at all. I listened to podcast and I read a little of a new mixed media book that I got called Art Journal Courage that's about it. I did reread some of Your Story Is Your Power and I'm reading aloud Where to Begin to my students.

Upcoming Book Adventures: 
My plan for this week is to finish Becoming and to start The Water Dancer by Ta-Nehisi Coates for book club. I also want to read more of Tell Me Who You Are.

Last Week's Book Adventures:
Last week I finished Cleo Wade's Where to Begin and decided to share it with my 8th graders as our last read aloud of the year. It ties in to themes we have been discussing all year and recently and feels like a great way to send them off on a new adventure. I finished Talking to Strangers and started listening to Yes No Maybe So by Becky Albertalli and Aisha Saeed. I also started reading Becoming by Michelle Obama and Tell Me Who You Are by Winona Quo and Priya Vulchi

Upcoming Book Adventures: 
This week I'll be reading more of Becoming and Tell Me Who You Are and I'll be listening to Yes No Maybe So

The next Story Exploratory workshop is this Saturday, May 16th. If you'd like an opportunity to connect with others and spend a couple of hours writing, please join us! For more information and to register, click here.
