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:
Goodbye Days was a tough book to read. There is quite a bit of emotion to handle as the main character is dealing with grief and guilt. It was a powerful book and worth the read though. I loved Sing, Don't Cry and Now. They will be released later this year. Sing shares a story of the author's grandfather. I loved the connection to music. Now is a great book about appreciating the moment happening now. Carrot & Pea was a very cute friendship story I shared with first & second grade. It made us giggle & smile.
I'm still reading Miles Morales (A Spider-Man Novel) by Jason Reynolds from NetGalley and am enjoying it so far. I'm still reading Emotional Agility - an adult nonfiction book, but haven't made much progress. I'm still listening to Afterworlds and am about 3/4 through. I want to finish all three this week.
