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.

If you want to know more about what I've been reading, visit my Goodreads shelf.

This Week in Books:

I've read a lot of picture books lately and have been enjoying them. Lucía is fabulous. I also really liked The One Day House and Creekfinding. My two middle grade reads were excellent too - Clayton Byrd Goes Underground and Stef Soto, Taco Queen.

The Coming Week:
I'm reading Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kemmerer and am loving it. She shares some wonderful wisdom. I'm looking forward to starting The Library of Fates this week. I'm not sure what else will fall into my hands. Have a great week!
