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.

Last Week on the Blog:
Last Week in Books:
Because my sister was here for much of the week, I didn't read much. We were running around Iowa, Wisconsin and Minnesota and having a lot of fun though. Americanized: Rebel Without a Green Card is the memoir of Sara Saedi. Her family moved to the U.S. from Iran. She shares about her life and specifically about the difficulties of fleeing their home country and navigating the intricacies of the immigration system here. The Belles is a unique fantasy. It took me a while to get into it, but once I was there, I couldn't put it down. I basically read it all in one day. The Wedding Portrait is another picture book from the activist who wrote A is for Activist. It's a great look at what activism is and some of the forms it can take.
The Coming Week:
I'm really not sure what I will be reading this week. I have Shadow Girl checked out, but otherwise, I'll need to locate a few more books to read.
