*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:  Finished Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng. Good one! Family drama. Also started and finished The Last Thing She Ever Did by Olsen. GREAT mystery! Made me want to drive around, sit in my driveway, take the long way home – whatever I needed to do to keep listening. Now listening to Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis. I guess I live under a rock, but I had no clue who Rachel Hollis was until this book started popping up on all of the “we think you’ll like” lists. Really just downloaded it to get it to stop showing up! I LOVE HER!

On my nightstand:  Had to give up on UnSelfie: Why Empathetic Kids Succeed in Our All-About-Me World by Borba. There were great ideas, but then I got to the chapter about reading and books and she lost me. YES! Read books that show kids different viewpoints and types of life and books that model empathy, but don’t worry about what reading level they are on. When she started going on that tangent, I just had to stop. Now I am reading my signed copy of Rebound by Kwame Alexander.

Reading with the toddler:  She’s mixing it up, you guys! Last week, we read (multiple times) The Hole Story by Bright, Jane Foster’s ABC, and Ten Tiny Babies by Karen Katz.
