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.
The Bad News: Spring break was much too short and the weather was not the best. The Good News: I had plenty to read! It’s Poetry Month, so I’ve been digging into former poetry reads and finding new ones. I also had time to listen on Libro.fm and open NetGalley again.
Physical Books: My poetry reads included Alive At The End Of The World by Saeed Jones, Glory in the Margins: Sunday Poems by Nikki Grimes, and How to Write a Poem by Kwame Alexander, Deanna Nikaido, and illustrated by Melissa Sweet.
Libro.fm: I’ve been listening to Hope Wins: A Collection of Inspiring Stories for Young Readers, edited by Rose Brock, narrated by various voices and I just downloaded the long-awaited Harvest House by Cynthia Leitich Smith, narrated by Shaun Taylor-Corbett and Charley Flyte.
NetGalley: I’m still not good at reading on NetGalley, but I saw some favorite authors this week, so I’m motivated. Hidden Truths by Elly Swartz, History Smashers: Christopher Columbus and the Taino People by Kate Messner and Jose Barreiro, and Only Only Marisol Rainey by Erin Entrada Kelly are books I cannot wait to add to the library this fall.
It’s Monday! What are YOU reading?
