It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 06/15/2020

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.

It's a great way to share what your reading and get recommendations. We encourage you to write your own post sharing what you’re reading, link up below, leave a comment, and support other IMWAYR bloggers by visiting and commenting on at least three of the other linked blogs.


Last Week's Book Adventures:
I'm behind on The Water Dancer for book club but I've heard it's getting good so I'm looking forward to getting caught up. I reread more of This Book is Anti-Racist by Tiffany M. Jewell. I also listened to The Last Black Unicorn by Tiffany Haddish on audio and started listening to More Myself by Alicia Keys.

Upcoming Book Adventures: 

I'll be reading more of The Water Dancer this week and listening to More Myself. I have Little Fires Everywhere to listen to on audio when I'm done with More Myself and I also still would like to read more of Black Enough

I'll also be doing some research as I prep for my 5 minutes for NCTE's Build Your Stack virtual event on Tuesday, June 30th. I'm sharing "Mentor Texts for Nurturing Teacher and Student Writers". Click here to check out the other presentations and to register. I'm sure I'm going to be furiously adding books to my list of books for summer reading.  
As I mentioned last week, if you are looking for books to read as a way of doing the ongoing work to be anti-racist and anti-bias, Kathy Burnette from Brain Lair Books has a list of book recommendations for you. You can find it at: This List is Anti-Racist. Here is a list of Black-owned, independent, book stores if you are looking for something closer to you. 

Also, two books, Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson and The Hate You Give by Angie Thomas, were made into movies and are now available to stream on a variety of platforms. I suggest you look for them and watch them if you haven't seen them yet. 

What are you reading this week?
