#imwayr It’s Monday! What are you reading?! 5.21.18

*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:  So, last week, I said I was getting ready to start reading Ghost Boys (getting all the buzz). I got into my car to head to the gym and I had not downloaded it! It was sitting in my Audible cart. So sad. It has since been downloaded, however, I am still listening to the one that had been purchased for a summer bookclub instead (it was just sitting there, waiting to be downloaded) – Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson. This book is heartbreaking. Stevenson is a lawyer and social justice activist. He writes about his work with incarcerated people on death row. Many of whom did not do the crimes they are on death row for. Stories like this make me mad. I am reading it for the Book Love Foundation Summer Reading Club. We do not discuss it until the end of the summer, but I am looking forward to that discussion.

On my nightstand:  Finished Rebound by Kwame Alexander. I cried. Started my Book of the Month Club book – The Perfect Mother by Molloy. It is starting to get good…

Reading with the toddler:  Books on repeat – It’s Not the Baby by J. Patrick Lewis and People Don’t Bite People by Wheeler.
