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:

Creepy Pair of Underwear is a hilarious sequel to Creepy Carrots. My students and I just had to laugh. The illustrations are fantastic. The World is Not a Rectangle is a great picture book biography of architect Zaha Hadid. I love her designs and it's great to have a book sharing her work. 

The Handmaid's Tale is well written and was highly unsettling. It would be disturbing anytime, but in the current climate, it's exceedingly troubling.

The Coming Week: I'm currently listening to They Both Die at the End and it's keeping me enthralled as expected. I'm also reading Pernille Ripp's Passionate Readers. It's inspiring and instructive.

  1. I just read the Hadid book recently. It was truly fascinating!

  2. I can't wait to read Creepy Pair of Underwear to students. I know they will love it!

  3. The World is not a Rectangle is one I want to get. True - Handmaid's Tale would seem very disturbing in this current climate. I read this book ages ago.

  4. I've read The Handmaid's Tale perhaps 20 years back. I have to re-read it. :)
