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:

Reading Last Week:

Last week was Social Justice Week at the local university, so I was able to hear some excellent speakers all week long, but that meant less time for reading. What I did manage to finish was excellent though. These two YA books were very different, but had me drawn in and I couldn't hardly put either one down. On the Come Up was real and a little painful, but also powerful. I was stressed and not in the best head space on Saturday, but There's Something About Sweetie helped take my mind off of things. It's a lovely upbeat book that will give readers a reason to smile.

The Coming Week: 
I haven't chosen my books, but I am sooooo tempted to click download on several books on Netgalley and Edelweiss. I'm restraining myself, but it's difficult. There are some really awesome books coming soon, but I have too many to read already. I'll probably start New Poets of Native Nations. Have a great week!

  1. I've not yet read the 1st of the Dimple and Rishi series, but I just now discovered that From Twinkle, with Love is not part of it. I always assumed they went together! *facepalm* I'm glad to have that sorted out. I just got On The Come Up through our e-library, so I hope to get started on that this week. And I understand the temptation on Netgalley and Edelweiss. lol Have a wonderful reading week, Crystal!

  2. I have On the Come Up, will read it soon. You're right, too many books & more on their way!

  3. Thank you so much for the heads up about There's Something About Sweetie. Aside from the teen angst, I enjoyed When Dimple Met Rishi.

  4. On the Come Up is definitely on my TBR pile but when I'll actually get arpund to it is another matter!
