It's Monday! What are you reading?

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 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:

My favorite of the week had to be A Torch Against the Night. It was a great follow up to An Ember in the Ashes. They are YA fantasy novels that swept me away to another place. It was on my #MustReadin2017 list so I get to cross one off already.

Next Week in Books: 
I have a lot of books on hold. Several of them are from my #MustReadin2016 list. I am still chipping away at the ones that I really wanted to finish. 
Reading Challenge Updates:
Goodreads Challenge 2017 - 21/550
Diversity on the Shelf 2017 - 12/225 (goal = 50% of my books by and/or about POC)
ReadPOC Challenge - 8/125


  1. Ido have An Ember in the Ashes on my list. Maybe someday? Thanks for sharing about the second book, too!

  2. I can see where Ember in the ashes would be good. I even started it, but it was too violent for me.

    1. I can totally see that. There is a lot of bloodshed. :(

  3. Haven't read this series but will check it out..
    From your list last week, Winnie and The Little Paris Bookshop sound interesting for me.. will be adding them to my list..

  4. I love that book stack for your reading goals in 2017! Enjoy your reading. I find that I turn more to reading these days for my link to sanity. - Myra from GatheringBooks
