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.
The books I have read recently are all so wonderful! I would recommend any of them to anyone! I finished Change Sings, The Magical Imperfect, Battle of the Bands (story collection), Too Bright To See, Ezra and the Mouse: The Search for Lafayette, and Say It Out Loud. I listened to Taste. (I dreamed of traveling to Italy to eat all that wonderful food for myself!) Now I’m starting the next set of titles and that should take me through the end of the year. So much to read! So little time! (And don’t look at my Goodreads account. It’s not updated. I really need to do better with tracking next year.) I’ll be attending NCTE’s Annual Conference this week and I’ll be off for Thanksgiving next week, so I won’t post next Monday. Stay tuned…the first week of December I’ll be back with more reading fun. Happy Holidays!
It’s Monday! What are YOU reading?

I’m so glad you’ve enjoyed the books you’ve been reading, Jennifer! I’ve heard great things about Say It Out Loud and Finding Junie Kim, and Dear Student sounds great as well. And I have also not done a good job of keeping my Goodreads updated—it takes a lot of energy! Enjoy the conference and your Thanksgiving celebration, and thanks so much for the great post!

I use Goodreads as a kind of draft record keeping for when I come to write my blog. Even if I don’t get reviews written, I try to use it to keep track of what I am reading.

I’m finally adding Dear Student to my list – somehow I failed to do that before today. There are times when I get behind on Goodreads, but it really helped me keep things better organized with my various lists and shelves/tags. That’s one reason that part of me panicked when they started doing changes. I hope you have a fantastic reading week, Jennifer!
