#imwayr It’s Monday! What are you reading?! 7.9.18

*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! 

Took last week off (not of reading, but of posting)! My family had some sort of summer crud, but we are MOSTLY back to normal now! Finally!

Listening to: Finished Providence by Kepnes. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this author. This book was great. I already want more! After Providence, I finally read Amal Unbound by Saeed. I let this one sit in my “to read” pile for too long! Excellent story of how one person can make a difference. Now, I’m listening to Bad Feminist by Gay. Another one that I really let sit in my “to read” pile for too long. LOVE her work!

On my nightstand:  Still reading (and very much enjoying) To Siri With Love by Newman. Took a break to read the graphic novel version of Speak by Anderson. So powerful! A must read (and then discuss) for teens – boys and girls.

Reading with the toddler: We are reading Mix It Up by Tulle again and again this week. We read an assortment of awesome picture books and got our huge stack from the library read and returned while everyone was sick…silver lining! Now, I only have SEVEN things checked out and FIVE of them are at the door to be returned! Yikes! Time to get some holds on!
