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 Readers. The 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:
Last week I was rereading parts of the books my students are reading for their book clubs. The discussions we've had have been so great. Last week I needed to do some reading for myself so I picked up Keep Moving by Maggie Smith and In The Dream House by Carmen Maria Machado. Both of these are adult books...but I still wanted to share them.
This Week's Adventures:
This week I'll go back to The 57 Bus and I'll be reading and sharing mentor text ideas for Tracy Holczer's new book Brave In the Woods. I also got an early copy of Ann Braden's new book Flight of the Puffin and I'm so excited to read it!
Saturday, February 20th is the next Story Exploratory workshop. This month's theme is Set Your Story Free and it's one of my favorites. We do lots of brainstorming exercises, talk about habits, and write a writer's manifesto. Join our Patreon and you can join the workshop live or watch the replay and of course, you'll leave feeling energized, expansive, and open to living your best life.
Story Exploratory is also offering a For Teachers: Diving Into Mentor Texts Retreat the first weekend in March. I'm thrilled for this virtual opportunity to dig deeper into mentor texts, explore stories, embrace expansion, and help teachers live their best lives. It's amazing how taking time for yourself to do some focused learning can help you go from drained and depleted to confident and energized.
