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 go to my Goodreads account, you can see what I have read recently & click on the books to learn more.

Last week in books: 

I got to read a lot of pretty awesome books this week. Guts will be super popular with students. Interestingly, there was a podcast this weekend that would be a great companion. The Daily had a special episode for kids: The Fear Facer. The guest on the podcast is a young girl with OCD who is terrified of tornadoes and vomit. I couldn't help but think of Raina's newest book. I think the episode would really appeal to her readers.
The Coming Week:
I'll be reading Waking Up White, Mindful of Race and The Line Tender. Have a great week!

  1. Ogilvy & Noise are new to me, Crystal, & I have some of the others, still need to read and share them. I loved Guts, bought it for a young granddaughter who adores all of Raina Tegemeier's books. Any I loved Nya's Long Walk, have used A Long Walk to Water often in my classes. Thanks!

  2. Bruce's Big Storm is so much fun. I love all of the Bruce books. Thanks for sharing and have a great week!

  3. Adding I am the Night Sky to my TBR list. Thanks for the review!
