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.
Continuing: I’m still reading Crash From Outer Space by Candance Fleming. It’s an interesting nonfiction book that tells the stories of the people who discovered debris from unknown flying objects (NOT saucer-shaped, as the newspaper said) and all of the weird and wacky facts about alien life, Roswell, New Mexico, UFOs, news reporting agencies, and government officials. Very cool! My middle school students are going to love it! (Coming October 4th from Scholastic Focus)
Me (Moth) is amazing! I can’t say anything specific because whatever I would say would spoil it. Let me just say, this title deserves all those awards it received! Excellent read!
I still need to read Tangled Up in Nonsense, but I got distracted when I took a weekend trip and read Amari and the Great Game on NetGalley instead. I loved the action, adventure, and Amari! This is book two of the Supernatural Investigations books by B.B. Alston. It’s coming soon – August 30th, from Balzer & Bray, and I cannot wait!
It’s Monday! What are YOU reading?

OMG yes to Me, Moth. Probably my favorite book I’ve read this year.

This Amari book is on my list, but after reading what you had to say about Me Moth, well I had to check it out.

Crash from Outer Space sounds like a great read—I read another book by Candace Fleming, The Curse of the Mummy, for the Cybils last year and thought it was surprisingly compelling. I also made note of Me (Moth), which I have not tracked down despite its many awards! And I’m glad to hear you enjoyed the second Amari book too. Thanks so much for the wonderful post, Jennifer!

Hey Jennifer! I’m so sorry you’re having trouble with that—I’ve been noticing a lot of people are having trouble commenting for various reasons, so you’re definitely not the only one. I was able to submit a Name/URL comment of my own, so trying in another browser might be helpful! You could also set up a Blogger profile and comment with that, although sometimes that only works in another browser as well. Let me know if you’re still having trouble and I can troubleshoot!

This is wonderful list and “Amari” is one of my favorite book. After read completely to the ending of this book makes you want to have more of the story, it made me very excited for the next installment. This series keeps on getting better.
