It's Monday! What are you reading?

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

I had a bit of time at the library today so I read a bunch of picture books and a few nonfiction too. I got to remember how much I love Owl Moon for both its words and pictures. I then experienced Golem for the first time. Those two definitely deserved their shiny Caldecott stickers. I noticed that Golem was very Frankenstein"ish." It was a great story along with the fantastic illustrations.

I really enjoyed my lengthier books this week also. I will put up a review of Bird very soon. Nothing Can Possibly Go Wrong brought me lots of smiles and the Warrior Heir sucked me in. I didn't get a picture of it up there, but I also finished Stuck in Neutral today. Phew. That one is tough. There was a lot to think about.

The Coming Week
I am listening to The Lord of Opium and am on the final disk. I am also listening to The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver. I plan to start Open Mic next and I have a professional book I am reading called Privilege, Power and Difference. Today is Multicultural Children's Book Day so I am also going to read a few multicultural books for that.

What will you be reading this week?


  1. The Warrior Heir series continues to do well with my fantasy lovers. The author is from Ohio, so that's a good connection for us!

    1. I noticed the setting was Ohio, but didn't realize she was from Ohio. I was born there and don't see many books set there.

  2. I love Amy Krouse Rosenthal! Will check out I Scream! as well as David Wisniewski's Golem. Thanks for sharing! I have two picturebooks featured in my Monday Reading this week! =)
