IMWAYR: Trying to Get Back in the Game


I’m trying to get back in the game…the READING game. I haven’t had a lot of time to read lately, but today I picked up some books and started to read. Now I’m looking forward to more!

Picture Books are Perfect! You know me. I read The Lost Package by Richard Ho and Jessica Lanan and Unspeakable: The Tulsa Race Massacre by Carole Boston Weatherford and Floyd Cooper today. Both of these books are barcoded and ready for students to read tomorrow.

I’m embarrassed to say that I haven’t read the latest Newbery Medal winner, When You Trap a Tiger by Tae Keller. I don’t know why I haven’t read it. No excuses. I picked it up with the intention to talk about it this Friday for First Chapter Friday.

It’s Monday! What are YOU reading?

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.

  1. I’m so glad I’m not the only person who still hasn’t read When You Trap a Tiger! I’m hoping to get to it this summer. The Lost Package and Unspeakable sound excellent as well—I’ve heard a lot of praise for both of them! I’m glad you’re getting back into reading, and I hope you enjoy it this week! Thanks so much for the great post!

  2. Reading slumps very now and then are normal I think. I find that if I have to read, it can be really burdensome. Picture books help me to, but the best way out of a slump for me is listening to an audiobook.
