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.

The Past Week on the Blog:
The Past Week in Books:
I finished reading two books for book clubs and both were pretty intense and were both realistic fiction. The Vanishing Half
is a fiction book for adults about two young Black women who run away and the very different choices they make as they live their lives. Ace of Spades
is YA and was about two Black students at a predominantly white private school. Their lives start unraveling and it is actually a thriller in some ways.
I also read Interior Chinatown
which was a National Book Award winner. It was quite unique in that it was written in script format though it wasn't strictly a play. Like the other two books I read, there is much to think about in this book around race and how the US culture operates.
Finally, I also finished another YA book If You, Then Me
and will be reviewing that at Rich in Color later this week.
The Coming Week: I have several books left to read from the book stack above, but am not entirely sure what I will pick up next. Have a great week!
