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.

Last Week in Books:
For relaxation over break, I read quite a few romances. The Worst Best Man was my favorite of the bunch with The Happy Ever After Playlist a close second. I almost didn't keep reading 99 Percent Mine. It was okay, but had issues.
I read two YA books. The Suprising Power of a Good Dumpling dealt with mental health issues and was more serious than I expected. I enjoyed it as a family story with a bit of romance. It was one of K-pop Confidential was a good look into the world of K-pop much like in Shine by Jessica Jung. The storylines are different and are both worth reading, but this just also points out some of the high pressure of the training for K-pop personalities.
I also finished the adult nonfiction collection Freedom is a Constant Struggle: Ferguson, Palestine and the Foundations of a Movement by Angela Davis. This is a collection of speeches that she has delivered over the years. It is truly interesting to see the many connections between these movements and causes that are truly all working toward full freedom.
The Coming Week:
I'm listening to The Fountains of Silence and just started reading The Thirty Names of Night. I have a few other audio books on deck, but am not sure what else I will get to this week. I wish you excellent reading!
