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 have to go back to work this week after taking 2 weeks off and I know I’m going to be dragging. I have a super busy week with programs, school visits, participating in an interview panel and just catching up on work in general. I’m hoping to at least finish these 2 books this week.
Here’s what I’m currently reading:
Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan
Am I one of the last people left who haven’t read this yet? I’ve had a copy of this book for years but never got to it. The teens in my Teen Advisory Board at the library requested to watch this movie in January so I finally had a reason to read the book. I will definitely finish it before our movie day!
Grasshopper Jungle by Andrew Smith
Grasshopper Jungle is the book club selection for one of the clubs I run at a local high school. Honestly, I would never pick up this book on my own. But my favorite thing about book club is letting the teens choose the books we read, especially when it forces me to read things I wouldn’t otherwise. I’m not super into this book but I am looking forward to our meeting this week and I can’t wait to hear what they thought of the book.
