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: 

What I enjoyed in the past few weeks:
Max Loves Muñecas by Zetta Elliott - lovely early chapter book
Everyday People ed by Jennifer Baker - anthology of short stories (not Kidlit)
Ordinary Hazards by Nikki Grimes - YA memoir in verse
My Fate According to the Butterfly by Gail D Villanueva - middle grade contemporary novel
Waking Up White by Debby Irving - adult memoir
My Furry Foster Family by Debbi Michiko Florence
The (Other) F Word: A Celebration of the Fat & Fierce ed by Angie Manfredi

The Coming Week:
These are the books I'm currently reading. I'd like to get to at least one or two of the books on my #MustReadin2019 list too. Happy reading!

  1. I've been looking forward to reading My Fate According to the Butterfly. I was glad to see you loved it on Goodreads, Crystal! Hope your reading week is great and that you get to some titles on your #MustReadin2019 list. I am afraid I'm going to have to bump a couple into 2020, but I'm trying...

  2. It's taken me a while to get through your post today Crystal because I've jaunted off to read about most of these books. Ordinary Hazards was already on my list, but I've added quite a few more after my visit here.

  3. Say Her Name sounds like my kind of read! My Fate According to the Butterfly looks like such a sweet read. Thanks for sharing! Have a great reading week!
