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.

Last Week on the Blog:
Last Week in Books:

This was the first longer week of school so I didn't finish any novel length books, but I did read a ton of picture books. Here are some that stood out.

The Coming Week:
I'm almost finished with You Bring the Distant Near by Mitali Perkins and I'll be reviewing it over at Rich in Color next week. I will likely read some more picture books also. Have a great week.

  1. I looked up You Bring The Distant Near, & it sounds very good, Crystal. I enjoyed The Sheep who Hatched An Egg & Please, Please The Bees, too. I hope you had a good week!

  2. I am still grappling with the slow down of middle grade reading since school started! I've got quite the book jam of books that need to be read now :(

  3. I own a copy of the graphic novel version of Kindred - and looking forward to reading it soonest. :)
