Sharing a love of literacy with fellow readers and writers

IMWAYR: Happy Spring!


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.

It’s Spring! If the snow and cold ever go away, I’ll believe it. Ha! Happy fourth quarter of school, happy spring, happy reading! School is super busy until spring break now, but I’m still on track with my reading.

Physical Books: I received a lovely book mail package today with the new book, The Carpet: An Afghan Family Story by Dezh Azaad and Nan Cao, published by Abrams Books for Young Readers. It’s the story of a family who lives on their carpet, and wherever they happen to be, the carpet brings them “home.” I love hearing about family traditions and cultures, and The Carpet is perfect for sharing.

I’m still reading Rosewood: A Midsummer Meet Cute by Sayantani DasGupta. It’s perfect for catching that spring/summer vibe. I’m still listening to Finally Seen by Kelly Yang and I LOVE the characters! The narrator (Cindy Kay) is good and I’m enjoying my commute to work while hanging out with Lina.

NetGalley: I’m reading Dear Medusa when I can. I feel for Alicia early in the book. This one is sad and scary and makes me angry. I wonder how long it will take to get challenged or banned. (I’ll be mad about that, for sure.) I’m still a fan of this cover! Perfect!

It’s Monday! What are YOU reading?

  1. Finally Seen is on my list. I can’t imagine that I won’t love it!

  2. I have Finally Seen & need to start it soon, Jennifer. Will look for Dear Medusa, sounds intriguing. The book banning is so sad to read about. I’m glad to read your words about it, too!
