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.
Last Week in Books:
The Radius of Us will likely be the book I review for Rich in Color later this week, so I won't say much except that I read through it in one sitting for the most part. It was compelling.
The Inexplicable Logic of My Life was a gorgeously written book. I loved the characters and wanted to stay in that space with them. Benjamin Alire Saenz is such a fabulous author. His characters are living and breathing and above all his writing can be so incredibly beautiful.
Stand Up and Sing! is a great picture book bio of Pete Seeger. It gives readers a sense of the man and his motivations.
The Coming Week: I recently got an ARC of #NotYourPrincess by the editors of Dreaming in Indian and Urban Tribes. I will read it slowly so it may take more than a week. It's a collection of essays, artwork, and other submissions so it's nice to take it a bit at a time. I'm still reading Miles Morales in fits and starts. It's on my phone so it's my emergency book right now. I'm enjoying it, but I hate reading on my phone for long periods of time so it's slow going. I am likely to start When Dimple Met Rishi because it finally comes out this week!!! We have two more weeks of school, but I am getting super excited for Summer #Bookaday. Here's a great post about it from Debbie Ridpath Ohi. I'm getting my list of books ready for some great reading this summer. I hope you have a great week!
