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.

Reading Last Week:
I read a lot this week, but there were definitely some standouts for me. The two that had me laughing were Mother Bruce by Ryan T. Higgins and I Really Like Slop by Mo Willems.
In the Footsteps of Crazy Horse by Joseph Marshall/ illustrated by James Mark Yellowhawk was a quick, but excellent book about the life of Crazy Horse through a modern day grandfather-grandson road trip. Hiawatha and the Peacemaker by Robbie Robertson was another great look into Native history.
Gone Crazy in Alabama by Rita Williams Garcia was a satisfying conclusion to the Gaither Sisters series.
A Northern Light by Jennifer Donnely was a great historical fiction/mystery.
A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki (adult fiction) was relatively mind-blowing. There are layers and layers to this book. I really adored the first part of the book. The later part I didn't enjoy as much, but overall, it was still an amazing experience. It's very unique.
The Coming Week: I'm listening to An Ember in the Ashes and may continue that into next week since it's lengthy. I'm also in the middle of a collection of Filipino short stories. Other than that, I will try to read a few more Printz books. Happy reading!
