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 Blogs:
Last Week in Books:
There were too many books this past week for me to talk about all of them. If you want to know more about a specific title, visit my Goodreads shelf. The standout biographies were the ones about Keith Haring, Leontyne Price, Lena Horne, and Jesse Owens. I also enjoyed the two memoirs I read that were young readers editions, The Distance Between Us and Misty Copeland.
Nikko Draws a Feeling was a cool one and I loved Nope! I think we have all been in a position of fear when trying something new at some point and this book illustrates it well. Cat Knit was super cute and of course I picked it because I knit.
The Coming Week:
I'll be reading the graphic novel version of Kindred and finishing The New Jim Crow. I hope to start Bad Feminist also. Beyond those, I am not sure what will come my way.
