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: 
Last Week in Books:

Too many to count, but I really enjoyed the YA books Born to Fly and Raybearer and The Mental Load which is a graphic novel for adults. 

During the stress of the election, I found that picture books were just the thing for those times when my brain felt too scattered for heavier or lengthier texts so I read quite a few of those. I read the longer books over this weekend when I felt my stress level drop significantly. 

The Coming Week: I'm still reading Freedom is a Constant Struggle and How to Be Remy Cameron. I have a committee meeting next week and am trying to read as many kidlit novels as possible between now and then so those should keep me busy. Happy reading!

  1. I'm right there with you with picture books. And just comfort reading in general.

  2. Love many of the picture books you posted!

  3. Yes, I read a lot of picture books, too, all lovely to sit with & enjoy! I have The Black Friend, need to read it! Thanks, Crystal

  4. These books look excellent! I have a copy of Suggested Reading, so I'll need to get to that. I'm glad picture books helped you escape the election stress! Thanks for the great post!

  5. I spent time with picture books and Terry Pratchett last week, but I also managed to get some nonfiction reading in. I finished Caste by Isabel Wilkerson the day the results were announced. Because of it, I wasn't at all surprised by the number of white people who voted for #45. I'm encouraging everyone I know to read it.

    1. I want to get to Caste soon. I am disappointed in white folks, but like you, not surprised.

  6. Wow, you read a lot of books last week! Mental Load sounds good - I have been enjoying lots of graphic novels lately.

    I'm late with my visits, but I hope you've enjoyed your books this week!
