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: 

Middle grade was the winner this week. I really enjoyed reading A Good Kind of Trouble, Right as Rain, and Mech Cadet Yu. I'll review Hungry Hearts at Rich in Color at the end of the week (I had an ARC from NetGalley). The rest of the books were okay, but not super noteworthy. I did really like Skyward, but it was creative nonfiction and the author did not explain what was fabricated and what was fact. It would have been amazing otherwise. 

The Coming Week:

I'm still reading The Happiness Trap and I have just started Winnie's Great War. I am taking a class this week and that has me busy Monday through Thursday, so I'm not sure about getting a lot of reading accomplished. Have a great week!

  1. I remember really enjoying A Good Kind of Trouble, but Right as Rain keeps getting knocked off my current reading list. I'm hearing good things and need to bring that one back to the top. Thanks for the reminder and have a wonderful reading week, Crystal!

  2. I really enjoyed A Good Kind of Trouble and Right as Rain. I liked Stoddard's first book but this one resonated even more with me.

  3. I. Want. That. Cake!
    Right as Rain is on my to read soon, and I look forward to it!
    Happy reading this week :)

  4. Looks like a fun reading week.

  5. A Good Kind of Trouble caught my eye as well as Skyward - but did note about the creative license and the nonfiction part. Will try to look for these in our library, but I suspect we don't have them yet. Great cake too!
    Have a great reading week!
