#imwayr It’s Monday! What are you reading?! 7.22.18

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 Bad Feminist by Gay. Planning to read Hunger soon (it’s been sitting on my nightstand forever)! Also listened to Word by Word by Anne Lamott. It was a recording of a speech she gave at a writer’s workshop many years ago. I love Lamott SO MUCH. I want to read some of her fiction next – I have only ever read the non-fiction, but after hearing her talk about how she writes…I’m going to check it out! I am currently listening to In the Country We Love: My Family Divided by Guerrero. Very relevant right now. Aside: I did not even realize who this person was until looking it up on Amazon just now! One of the main characters in Orange is the New Black. I think sometimes I live in a little toddler bubble.

On my nightstand:  Still reading (and very much enjoying) To Siri With Love by Newman. It is taking me so long, because I fall asleep basically after my head hits the pillow!

Reading with the toddler: She is loving Golden Books! She calls them the books with the glitter 🙂 We have a couple of classics, but then my husband found and purchased all of the Star Wars Golden Books awhile back. So, I’ve been reading those. Not the BEST literature, but if she wants me to read them, sure…why not?
