It's Monday! What are you reading? is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journeys. Jen Vincent over at Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee Moye from Unleashing Readers decided to put a children's and YA spin on it and they invite anyone with an interest to join in. You can participate by creating your post then visit one of their sites to add your site. Finally, visit at least three participant blogs and comment to spread the love.
If you want to know more about what I am reading, visit me at my Goodreads shelf. Images via Goodreads unless otherwise noted.
The Past Week:
My favorite young adult book this week was the audio of The 5th Wave. I noticed that in the audio, it was sometimes difficult to distinguish between times when a character is actually speaking or is thinking. My favorite picture book was Auntie Yang's Great Soybean Picnic. It has a wonderful sense of family and the excitement of getting together around food. One Came Home and Maximilian were both fun middle grade books too. The one that stopped me in my tracks was Kindred. It was amazing. I am up way too late so I will direct you to my goodreads for the rest of those reviews. :)
The Coming Week:
I am listening to The Lord of Opium in the car and am reading an ARC of Bird from Edelweiss. I posted a trailer of that earlier this week. I just started The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver on audio also. That is the one on a Playaway so I listen to it when I am running. I will also be reading a few more ARCs this week. What will you be reading? Have a fabulous week!
