You know that scene in Pretty Woman when Richard Gere’s character, Edward, calls into work and says, “I’m taking the day off?” That’s how I feel today. After reading for a week straight for different purposes, I took this evening to complete other tasks: phone calls, emails, dishes, laundry…

I do have a plan for this week’s reading, though. I have Trevor Noah’s Born a Crime (2016) on my desk, and I want On the Come Up by Angie Thomas (2019) next.

It’s Monday! What are you reading?

It’s Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme 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 your next “must-read” book!

Kellee Moye, of Unleashing Readers, and Jen Vincent, at Teach Mentor Texts decided to give It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? a kidlit focus. If you read and review books in children’s literature – picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels, anything in the world of kidlit – join us! We love this meme and think you will, too. We encourage everyone who participates to visit at least three of the other kidlit book bloggers that link up and leave comments for them.
