It's Monday! What are you reading?

An image of books has another image on top that explains what It's Monday is all about. You may find the same information in the first two sentences on the post.
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 want to see more of my reading, visit my Goodreads shelves here. The lists of the books in the images below may be found at Goodreads.

There were many really excellent books in my past few weeks, but I am just not able to comment on them right now. I am almost falling asleep sitting up. The first week of school is always draining and the second week is just about to start so I need to get to bed. 

The Coming Week: 
I am still working on finalizing my reading list for the What's New in Children's Lit class I will be teaching through UW-Madison in October so I will try to get to a few more picture books and early chapter books. Have a great week. 


  1. Good luck at school this week Crystal. I remember the beginning of school exhaustion. I'm impressed you managed to get this much posted.

  2. It looks like you've been reading a lot of great books lately, Crystal, but I completely understand why you don't have the energy to write about them! I really hope the second week of school is less draining than the first and you can get a little rest. Good luck, and thanks so much for sharing!
