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 now...you 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.

On the Blog:
Last week in books:
I read Yes No Maybe So for the Rich in Color March book discussion. It's a really great YA that gives a look into activism along with a sweet relationship. I got a copy of Feast of Peas by Kashmira Sheth from the publisher. It's a fun and humorous picture book I'll be reviewing soon. Curses and Kisses is another ALC (Advanced Listening Copy) that I got from Libro.fm for teachers. I wanted to read it because its' by Sandhya Menon, but didn't realize precisely what it was. I know it's problematic, but Beauty and the Beast was always my favorite fairy tale. I loved it because it was the only story I knew that wasn't love strictly because of how someone looks. Anyway, this is the first book in a YA series that consists of modern retellings. This has many similarities, but is also its own unique tale. I laughed aloud many times and had many smiles. It's light and perfect reading for relaxing. Let's Make Ramen! is a very fun graphic novel cookbook. I tried one recipe and it was yummy. It begins with a history of ramen and is extremely thorough in the different components. "All the Real Indians Died Off": And 20 Other Myths About Native Americans is by the Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, the same author of An Indigenous History of the United States. It digs into the many stereotypes and myths about Native people.
The Coming Week:
I am still reading new Eric Gansworth memoir Apple (ARC from Edelweiss) and am listening to The Gravity of Us via Libro.fm. I just got approved for American as Paneer Pie so I may start that one too. Have a great week.
