It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 12/27/2021

 

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 you're 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 Adventures:
I finished Aristotle and Dante Dive Into the Waters of the World and I absolutely LOVED it. I also finished The Queens of Animation and enjoyed the behind the scenes stories from female artists at Disney. I'm listened to Big Magic for the 3rd or 4th time at least. Something new always stands out to me every time I read it.

This Week's Adventures:

This week I'll be reading BrenĂ© Brown's new book Atlas of the Heart and re-listening to Big Magic. I also need to read the graphic novel version of Speak and I still have After the Shot Drops to finish up. 

It's the last Monday of 2021! It's fascinating to me that one year can go by so slowly and at the same time so quickly! Thanks for visiting and sharing what you are reading!

Last Week's Adventures:
This week I listened to more of Aristotle and Dante and also did some podcast listening. I read My Shouting, Shattered, Whispering Voice by Patrice Vecchione, it's all about writing poetry and I enjoyed it. Then I started reading The Queens of Animation. I'm about halfway through and it's so interesting.

This Week's Adventures:

I'll finish The Queens of Animation and then I have Speak the graphic novel to read and Brene Brown's new book, Atlas of the Heart. And I plan to finish listening to Aristotle and Dante. We are on winter break and I'm soaking up all the wonderful time off!

Last Week's Adventures:
Well, it was a busy week! I ended up rereading parts of When Things Fall Apart. I might reread it every night because it's such good learning and it calms me. For my audiobook, I ended up putting on Elizabeth Gilbert's Big Magic again.

This Week's Adventures:

Students are in graphic novel book clubs right now and I've never read the graphic novel version of Speak by Laure Halse Anderson so I need to read that. I really do love this new Aristotle and Dante book so maybe I'll go back to it too.

Last Week's Adventures:
I'm still listening to Aristotle and Dante Dive into the Waters of the World and I absolutely love it so far. I finished reading What Would Frida Do? and highly recommend it. It's a great blend of Frida's life and how we can be inspired by her today. I also finished reading When Things Fall Apart and also recommend it. Self care is not easy but I found that this help me reframe things and think of how to adjust my mindset. Speaking of teacher self care, I'm offering a Teacher Wellness Gathering this Thursday, December 9th. There are two options, one is an in person gathering and the other is via Zoom. You can find more information below and sign up here (in person) and here (virtual).

This Week's Adventures:

I'll be listening to more of Aristotle and Dante and then I'd like to finish After the Shot Drops but I'm also to start The Queens of Animation that I'm reading for research for a project I'm working on.

Last Week's Adventures:
Progress! I finished listening to Amira and Hamza: The War to Save the Worlds by Samira Ahmed and it was super cute. And I started listening to Aristotle and Dante Dive Into the Waters of the World by Benjamin Saenz (narrated by Lin Manuel Miranda!) and I love it so much. I am almost done with When Things Fall Apart and am halfway through What Would Frida Do?

This Week's Adventures:

I'm excited to finish listening to Aristotle and Dante Dive Into the Waters of the World this week and to finish reading When Things Fall Apart and What Would Frida Do? I'm really enjoying both of these - the first is great for overall navigating life right now and the other is great for thinking about creativity.

This week I finished listening to Wild Tongues Can't Be Tamed and I've been reading When Things Fall Apart by Pema Chodron before bed and am close to finishing it.

This Week's Adventures:

I'm in the zone to finish a few things I've had around the house but haven't gotten to yet. Here are four I'd like to finish this week, or at least make progress on: When Things Fall Apart, After the Shot Drops by Randy Ribay, What Would Friday Do? by Arianna Davis, and The Queens of Animation by Nathalia Holt. And then on audio, I'm going to listen to Amira and Hamza. I'm hoping to settle in with the longer weekend. I hope you find time and warm, cozy spots to read in this week!

Well, I'm still listening to Wild Tongues Can't Be Tamed. It's interesting to hear stories that are similar to mine. That's still a super new experience for me but so needed.

This Week's Adventures:

Once again I'll be listening to more of Wild Tongues Can't Be Tamed and then to Amira and Hamza next.

I enjoyed Best Nerds Forever and then started listening to Wild Tongues Can't Be Tamed which is a collection of stories from the Latinx diaspora. I'm really enjoying it so far. 

This Week's Adventures:

I'm looking forward to listening to more of Wild Tongues Can't Be Tamed and finishing reading Brown Girl Dreaming with my classes this week. I'm hoping to read Amira and Hamza: The War to Save the Worlds when I'm done. The description says fans of Aru Shah will also like this book and I LOVED Aru Shah so I'm excited.

I'm still in a bit of a reading slump except for reading Brown Girl Dreaming with students. :)

This Week's Adventures:

To get out of my slump, I think I need to find something short and super engaging to read. Have any suggestions?

Last Week's Adventures:
Gah! I have come to realize that when I pick a book that I'm not jiving with...I don't get reading done. I'm making the executive decision to pause listening to Lupe Wong Won't Dance. I've been listening in Spanish and I think that's why I'm struggling. I have to pay a lot more attention in Spanish and that means it's not as fun. I'm also reading Equity-Centered Trauma-Informed Education by Alex Shervrin Venet and it's so great but it's a lot of deep thinking which I can only handle so much of right now!

This Week's Adventures:

I'll keep reading but I did also check out Grown by Tiffany D. Jackson and I've liked everything I've read by her so I might have more luck with it then the others right now.

I forgot to post last week! I listened to Fake ID by Lamar Giles and read Quincredible and Be More Chill as a graphic novel. I was so happy to do some short reads. That has been my key to success with any kind of reading lately. 

This Week's Adventures:

I'm now listening to Lupe Wong Won't Dance/Lupe Wong No Baila and reading Success is for You by David Hawkins and Equity-Centered Trauma-Informed Education by Alex Shervrin Venet. I need both of this soooooo much. This year is no joke! Thanks for stopping by and sharing your reading life with me/us!

Last Week's Adventures:
This week I listened to I'm Not Dying With You Tonight - soooooo good! And I also finished listening to A Song Below Water by Bethany C. Morrow. I had started it but never finished it. I loved the book but the fantasy part of it had me a bit confused. Not sure if it was me not paying enough attention or the way it shifted but it took me a long time to figure out the fantasy part of it. I also started listening to Concrete Rose by Angie Thomas.

This Week's Adventures:

I'll finish listening to Concrete Rose this week and then I'd like to listen to Lupe Wong No Baila (Lupe Wong Won't Dance) by Donna Barba Higuera. I'm still reading After the Shot Drops because I am just not the best at physical books lately but I'd love to know what happens in the story so I'd love to make it a priority.
