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 on the blog: 
The Voting Booth

Last week in reading:
Ruse (Want, #2)

Rebel was a nice visit back with June and Day in the future. I had to read a re-cap before diving in though because it has been so long since I read the first few books. 

Ruse is another YA dystopian, which is slightly bizarre to read since we seem almost to be living in one at this point.

The Book is Anti-Racist is an excellent book because it gives information, but it also provides lots of activities that really help you think through and do your own work around anti-racism.

The memoir Untamed really resonated with me. It also seemed to overlap with The Four Agreements. The first agreement about being domesticated. We are really shaped by many outside forces that aren't always in our best interest.

Fever Year was eerie to read right now. It looks into the pandemic of 1918. It is definitely white centric which is always a disappointment. There is a lot of interesting information that I did not know though.

Here We Are Now was a young adult audio book available on the new online library we have. A young girl connects with her father's family. 

The Coming Week:

Making Comics and The Four Agreements will be in my currently reading stack for a while because they are both basically workbooks that can't be rushed through. I just started listening to Tristan Strong, but should finish it within the next few days. I'm taking a class this coming week, so reading may slow down. Happy reading!

  1. Oh my, I sure hope I get to Untamed before it's due back to the library. I've heard such great things and just realized I only have it for about another week. I need to make this happen! Thanks for sharing, Crystal!
