It’s Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme started by Sheila at Book Journeys and now hosted by Kathryn at The 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 the next “must-read” book!
Jen, of Teach Mentor Texts, and Kellee and Ricki, at UnleashingReaders decided to give It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? a kidlit focus.
I’m so excited that it’s the week of Halloween. It’s officially my favorite time of the year and I hope to see lots of costumes at the library this week. I spent the weekend watching Halloween episodes of my favorite TV shows and getting in the spooky spirit.
Here’s what I’m currently reading:
The Royal Runaway by Lindsay Emory
This is my adult fiction library book read for the week. I love stories about contemporary royals and this one has already been so fun. It’s about a princess and a spy trying to unravel what happened to her runaway groom. I’ll read anything that says it’s for fans of Princess Diaries and The Royal We
Ash by Malinda Lo
Somehow I got both of my teen book clubs that I run at the library to read this YA book. It’s a lesbian, feminist retelling of Cinderella. It’s something I would normally never pick up on my own (just because I don’t read much fantasy-esque books) but I’m really enjoying it. I can’t wait to hear what the teens think of it.
So Done by Paula Chase
I just started this middle grade novel and I hope to finish it before my e-book check out expires. It explores friendship and growing up. It’s about two best friends that seem to be growing apart while dealing with their own secrets.
