IMWAYR: Many Book Birthdays!

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.

Physical Books: I love celebrating book birthdays! I read Dan Santat’s graphic novel/memoir, A First Time For Everything, before meeting him recently at Anderson’s Bookshop in Naperville, IL. He is so kind! I got my Fanta sticker and a signed book, which is already moving along at school. This week (tomorrow) there are four (4) notable middle-grade book birthdays! Rosewood: A Midsummer Meet Cute by Sayantani DasGupta, Squished by Megan Wagner Lloyd and Michelle Mee Nutter, Good Different by Meg Eden Kuyatt, and Change the Game: A Graphic Novel by Colin Kaepernick (all from Scholastic Press). I’m still listening to Finally Seen by Kelly Yang. I haven’t been in the car much, so I’m not finished yet.

NetGalley: I haven’t started Dear Medusa yet, but I will this week.

It’s Monday! What are YOU reading?
