#imwayr It’s Monday! What are you reading?! 4.2.18

*Links to books mentioned below are to my Amazon affiliate page! I use any money I make with these links to purchase books for my weekly giveaway! It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? From Picture Books to YA!

It’s Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme hosted by Kathryn at Book Date. It is 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 are the smart folks behind giving It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? a kidlit focus! Join me! 

Listening to: I finished This Book is Gay by Juno Dawson and Cultivate: A Grace-Filled Guide to Living an Intentional Life by Casey last week. I enjoyed both, but This Book is Gay was my favorite of the two. Like I said last week, it should be in every public library YA collection and in every high school library…and probably in many homes with a teen or young adult. It is a book aimed at young adults about simply being gay – history, resources, what life is like for a LGBTQ+ person. Cultivate is a self help book for women who are just in the thick of life. I liked it enough to finish it…if you sit down with a devotional every morning, this book is for you. Right now, I am listening to Emma in the Night by Walker. Just started it yesterday – I want to keep listening! A mystery that already has me wanting more.

Reading with the toddler: My dad bought Beat Bugs All You Need is Love for the toddler for her birthday and she LOVES it. We tried watching Beat Bugs on Netflix once and she wasn’t into it (I was! I love the Beatles…like…a lot), but maybe we’ll give it another go.
