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 In the Country We Love: My Family Divided by Guerrero. This is an important story about the kids left behind when parents are deported. Guerrero tells her personal story of being left behind has a young teen. The audiobook was a little much sometimes (sort of like listening to a teenager recording herself doing voices and play acting), but the story itself outweighs any sort of annoyance happening in the actual reading of it. Great one for teens and young adults (or anyone, really) who needs to learn more about this issue so that they can express their feelings with their vote. Guerrero also shares resources and places to go for more information. Now I’m listening to The Book of Essie by Weir. Just started it and I can tell I am not going to want to get out of my car – I’m going to want to stay just to listen.
On my nightstand: Almost finished with To Siri With Love by Newman. It is taking me FOREVER, but when you are the before bed book, maybe a page a day gets read?
Reading with the toddler: Book – o – Masks over and over and over and over…
