It's Monday! What are you reading?


It's Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme hosted by Kathryn at Book Date. It's a great way to recap what you read and/or reviewed the previous week and to plan out your reading and reviews for the upcoming week. It's also a great chance to see what others are reading right now...you just might discover your next “must-read” book!

Kellee Moye, of Unleashing Readers, and Jen Vincent, of Teach Mentor Texts decided to give It's Monday! What Are You Reading? a kidlit focus. If you read and review books in children's literature - picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels, anything in the world of kidlit - join us! We love this meme and think you will, too. We encourage everyone who participates to visit at least three of the other kidlit book bloggers that link up and leave comments for them.

If you want to know more about what I've been reading, visit my Goodreads shelf.

We finally moved into our new house. We are loving it, but are exhausted and are short on time. I haven't done an update for a few weeks. I also missed the #MustReadin2017 update in the chaos. Here are the posts that happened in the meantime and a few screenshots of what I've been reading in between packing, cleaning and unpacking.

  4. Best wishes in your new home, so exciting, but yes, exhausting too. You have some books on the list I have, and need to read! I just got The Blue Songbird at the library, will read Flying Lessons soon, I hope! Have a great week, Crystal!

    1. Thanks! I really loved Amina's Voice, Flying Lessons and Piecing Me Together, but many of the others were also lovely.

  5. Even with the chaos, you're busy reading! I can't wait to get to Piecing Me Together. Amina's Voice is one of my favorites of the year.

  6. Moving is exciting, but holy moly, is it ever exhausting! I've been in my current home since 2009, and I'm not in any mood to move anytime soon!

    I'm really looking forward to Amina's Voice!

    1. I am taking the opportunity to highlight books more in the house. Our bookshelves were mostly in bedrooms before. Now more are out in public spaces. :)
