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 Adventures:
I am on a huge audiobook roll! I finished listening to This Is Our Rainbow and it is such an awesome collection! Definitely recommend. I also listened to You Should See Me in a Crown by Leah Johnson, Shuri by Nic Stone, and Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas. I have to say I was not prepared for Cemetery Boys to have me freaking out the way it did. It was phenomenal and You Should See Me in a Crown was fabulous as well. I feel super lucky to be able to share such amazing books with students. Most days I find myself marveling at how far books have come from when I was a kid in the 80’s. 

Although I adore all the newly published books, I did also decide to listen to Jonathan Livingston Seagull this week because I’ve noticed birds popping up for different reasons and it’s a book my dad recommended to me when I was young. 

Our school participates in Battle of the Books and I’ve already read some of the books we have on our list but I also listened to two picture books: Above the Rim by Jen Bryant and Unspeakable by Carole Boston Weatherford. I’ve started Twins by VarĂ­an Johnson for BOB as well. 

This Week's Adventures:

I’m making progress with The Storm Runner by J.C. Cervantes still and plan to finish listening to Twin. After Twins, I plan to read Mac Undercover and A Thousand Questions by Saadia Faruqi (also on our BOB list). Happy reading!

Last Week's Adventures:
This week I finished That Way Madness Lies and then I cruised through a few more audiobooks! I read Pax which I had never read before and it was so good. And then I also listened to Remarkably Bright Creatures which I absolutely loved. I also was able to listen to The Incredibly Dead Pets of Rex Dexterity which was an entertaining mystery. 

I’m still working on The Storm Runner and I’m really loving it but reading a physical book for sure is harder for me than audiobooks.

This Week's Adventures:

I’m planning to continue reading The Storm Runner and then I downloaded This Is Our Rainbow and I’m excited to listen. I love anthologies and seeing what shorter texts I might be able to incorporate into my classes as mentor texts.

Last Week's Adventures:
I’m 2/3 of the way through That Way Madness Lies which has been fun so far. I especially love the spin on Romeo and Juliet. I’m also still reading The Storm Runner

This Week's Adventures:

I’ll be finishing up That Way Madness Lies this week and hopefully spending more time on The Storm Runner. Reading physical books isn’t as easy for me during the school year. Audiobooks help me stay on top of my kidlit reading! I did get an ARC of Fregona by David Bowles that looks so fantastic that I might have to sneak it in asap.

Last Week's Adventures:
I was determined to finish Love In English by Maria E. Andreu this week and I did. It was super cute but also an interesting perspective on coming to the United States and learning English. I’m really close to finishing my Babysitters Club reread too.

This Week's Adventures:

We had our library visit on Friday so I checked out The Storm Runner by J.C. Cervantes which I cannot believe I haven’t read yet. I bought it two years ago and gave it to a student and I’m not sure I ever got it back. But I have it now! I also started listening to That Way Madness Lies, an anthology edited by Dahlia Adler that  has 15 retelling of Shakeapeare’s classics. It’s unique so far and interesting!
