It’s Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journeys
. 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…who knows, you might discover that next “must read” book!
The lovelies at teachmentortexts.com this would be a fun meme to start up with a kidlit focus: anyone reading and reviewing books in children’s literature. It can be picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels – you name it in the world of kidlit and it’s in! I love being a part of this meme and hope you do too! I encourage everyone participating to go and visit the other kidlit book bloggers that link up and to comment on as many posts as you can. We love talking books and believe in sharing and discussing what we’re reading. We hope you join us!
I feel as though I should be reading more but with spring comes outdoor activities for Girl Athlete and The Boy. I’ve been spending ever-growing amounts of time cheering on mini soccer and softball players. I feel that bringing a book to these events might be seen as unsupportive by my kids and insensitive by the other parents. Over the past two weeks I finished The Aviary by Kathleen O’Dell and The Crown of Embers by Rae Carson on audio (the second book in the series). I was also able to finish Half Moon Investigations by Eoin Colfer.
This week I plan to finish Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta. Game of Thrones will continue to be on my Kindle and something I go to when I’m feeling violent and debauched-which, let’s face it, in May of the school year, is pretty much every day.
