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.
I’m loving these reads right now! I’m so lucky to have books to read and share, and friends who I can count on to join me. I’m following the plan I set up and it’s working well here in April. Now that spring break is over, I’ll need to keep it up. Will I? We shall see!
Picture Books are Perfect for Middle Schoolers! I’ve been talking about reading picture books in middle school for a long time now, and I still believe that sharing these gorgeous books helps even older students learn and grow. I read these last week, thanks to the generosity of Publisher Spotlight…
Middle Grade Wonders! This week I’ll start reading Those Kids From Fawn Creek by Newbery-Medalist Erin Entrada Kelly. I cannot wait to dive into this middle-grade novel about a new student at Fawn Creek — who moves to Fawn Creek, anyway? I’ll find out! Will this be another title for Newbery?
Yes, I’m STILL listening to Meet Me In the Margins on Libro.fm. It’s a good audiobook and the narrator is entertaining. I want to find a way to listen more often than just driving back and forth to and from work. Audiobooks are still hard for me to find time to read.
It’s Monday! What are YOU reading?

I just finished Fawn Creek last week. As usual, Erin Entrada Kelly knocked my socks off.

What a wonderful set of books, Jennifer! I still haven’t read any of Erin Entrada Kelly’s books, which is shameful at this point, so perhaps Those Kids from Fawn Creek could be a good starting place. Thanks so much for the wonderful post!
