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 finished listening to Life in Five Senses by Gretchen Rubin and I highly recommend it. I started listening to A Very Typical Family by Sierra Godfrey and it’s interesting so far.
This Week's Adventures:
This week I have a very big announcement…I’m looking forward to new reading adventures but I won’t be sharing my weekly reading here any more. I’m not sure what the future holds for Teach Mentor Texts but I do know that I rarely post book reviews and mentor texts ideas and I find myself reading more and more for my own learning and growth and entertainment than reading kidlit. I pride myself on being an educator who reads what her students read and I will continue to do that but I’m also super passionate about being an entrepreneur and nurturing my own writing life at the same time.
In reflecting on all of this, I’ve realized that my energy has shifted and it’s time for a pause in blogging here at Teach Mentor Texts. I’m so extremely grateful for all the fun Teach Mentor Texts has been! I have grown in so many ways thanks to this blog and I appreciate all the connections I have made with other educators, librarians, writers, authors, illustrators…the people memories bring me the most joy. Blogging with Kellee Moye was an especially huge highlight for me. She now blogs with Rick Ginsberg at Unleashing Readers and we have co-hosted IMWAYR. Starting next week, you can go to their blog to read their awesome book reviews and get recommendations and join the link up. It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? Is not going away! I know they will carry on this awesome tradition.
Thank you so much for seeing me, appreciating what I have to say, and sharing your reading and writing passion and knowledge over the years! I will forever be grateful.
If you’d like to stay connected, I’ll be blogging over at Story Exploratory. You can read my first post here. Another great way to stay connected with me is to sign up for my newsletter here. I’m also on Instagram at @jvincentwrites and @storyexploratory.
