#imwayr It’s Monday! What are you reading?! 6.4.18

*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:  Finished Gertie’s Leap to Greatness by Kate Beasley.  Great book – can totally see this in a 3rd – 5th grade classroom as a read aloud. ESPECIALLY if you happen to have a southern accent. Also finished Hello, Universe by Kelly this week. This is the book that won the Newbery Medal this year, so it’s a good one! Now I’m taking a break from KidLit to read Stephen King’s newest book, The Outsider. I think I’m starting to get to the Stephen King part of the book…up until now it reads like a “who done it” crime thriller (which I like), but I know there’s go to be something more and creepy and I cannot wait!

On my nightstand:  Had to give up on – The Perfect Mother by Molloy. I’ll go back to it. Reading Towers Falling by Rhodes. After reading Ghost Boys, I just had to read more by this author.

Reading with the toddler:  She is LOVING City Block by Franceschelli. I think it’s the size of the book? And, maybe because there are so many pages dedicated to food? My girl loves to eat! I put the others in the series on request at the library.
