It's Monday! What are you reading?

#IMWAYR It's Monday! What are you reading? Sharing picture books, early readers, middle grade books, and young adult books for readers of all ages. Hosted by and This text is centered over a background of bookshelves.
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 Storygraph account, you can see what I have read recently & click on the books to learn more.

Review of Jo Jo Makoons

Last Week in Books:
Cover images for Snapdragon and The Meet Cute Project

Snapdragon is an amazingly cute middle grade graphic novel with magical realism. The Meet Cute Project is a YA rom-com that was fairly predictable, but of course, it was also cute.

Cover images of Accidentally Engaged and Take a Hint Dani Brown

Accidentally Engaged and Take a Hint Dani Brown are both adult rom-coms with the fake relationship trope. They are both super cute. Accidentally Engaged involves food and there were two recipes at the end--Egg Curry and Parathas. We had a yummy dinner when I tried out the recipes. Dani Brown is one of the sisters from the first Brown Sisters series and was just as fun as that one. I have the third and final book on deck. 

The Coming Week: 
I just started reading a nonfiction adult book called The Loneliest Polar Bear. It was written by the son of a good friend. It's a really great book and it's fun to know the proud mom. :) He wrote the book after creating a five part series about Nora for The Oregonian. You can learn more about that here. Have a great week!


  1. I haven't read Snapdragon yet, but it sounds like one worth checking out.

  2. I really enjoyed Snapdragon.

  3. What a great set of books! I reviewed Snapdragon back in February—it was a really fun read! I'm glad the recipes from Accidentally Engaged were enjoyable. Thanks for the great post!

  4. Bits and pieces of Snapdragon reminded me of Terry Pratchett's witches, but what I loved most was the relationships across the generations.
    Thanks for the review of Jo Jo Makoons. I was excited to see my library has it on order and be the first one on the list for it.
