This is a short school week, so there’s plenty of time for reading. This past weekend I finished Maybe He Just Likes You, Things You Can’t Say, and More to the Story (Hena Khan’s newest comes out tomorrow!). All three of these are going into the middle school library as soon as possible. All three of these are excellent stories. All three of these are important books.
I received a beautiful book over the weekend and I’m absolutely in love. Ashley Bryan’s picture book autobiography, Ashley Bryan: Words to my Life’s Song is joyful, creative, and wonderful — just look at the cover! I can’t stop smiling when I glance over at the book. I can’t believe I haven’t read it before; it was published in 2009 (Atheneum). Thank you, Donalyn Miller, for the #bookaday giveaway.
Next up is The World Ends in April by Stacy McAnulty. It’s coming out tomorrow, too. (Random House Books for Young Readers) There are LOTS of book birthdays in September and October, by the way. Get ready! (That’s my pep talk to myself.)
It’s Monday! What are YOU reading?
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 I decided to give It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? a kidlit focus. If you read and review books in children’s literature – picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels, anything in the world of kidlit – join us! We love this meme and think you will, too. We encourage everyone who participates to visit at least three of the other kidlit book bloggers that link up and leave comments for them.
