IMWAYR: Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, fellow readers!

In an attempt to be more organized about my reading this year, I’m trying something new (we’ll see how long this lasts). Each week I’ll read physical books, listen to an audiobook, and read a NetGalley book, and then share my thoughts. This week I’m still working on 2020 titles while diving into my already-growing 2021 TBR list.

NetGalley Reading: I finished Booked: The Graphic Novel by Kwame Alexander, with art by Dawud Anyabwile. This dynamic duo already wowed me with The Crossover: Graphic Novel Adaptation in 2019 and now they are back to retell the story of soccer player, Nick Hall. I LOVED the story all over again and I can’t wait for students to see this one on January 4, 2022 (yes, we have to wait another year).

Physical Book of the Week: Before the Ever After by Jacqueline Woodson Audiobook: Rent a Boyfriend by Gloria Chao

It’s Monday! What are you reading?

IMWAYR is a weekly blog hop with kid lit co-hosts Jennifer from Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee and Ricki from Unleashing Readers. The original IMWAYR, with an adult literature focus, was started by Sheila at Book Journeys and is now hosted by Kathryn at The Book Date. It’s a great way to share what you’re reading and get recommendations from others. We encourage you to write your own post sharing what you’re reading, link up, leave a comment, and support other IMWAYR bloggers by visiting and commenting on at least three of the other linked blogs each week.

I write about literacy education and my love for reading and writing. My passion is sharing titles I use for school libraries, classroom collaborations, and professional development. My goal is to collaborate, research, and share with other life-long literacy learners. Welcome to my blog!

  1. Before the Ever After was such a good (but painful) read! I hope your new reading plan works out well. I’ve been trying to figure out what to do about all the new books piling up here. I’m thinking of not letting myself buy more books until I finish half the ones I’ve purchased or been given in the last two years. LOL Hope 2021 is a wonderful reading year for you, Jennifer!

  2. I had no idea there were graphic novel versions of The Crossover and Booked—that’s awesome! I’m hoping to read Before the Ever After soon as well. I hope your new weekly reading scheme helps keep things organized! Also, I love your redesigned blog—it looks wonderful! Thanks for the great post!

  3. Thank you for sharing about Before the Ever After. I’ve been wanting to read it for ages and after reading this went to check my library and they finally have it! Whoopee!
