IMWAYR: So Many Books! I Cannot Keep Up!

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.

Every time I think I’m “catching” up, I’m “coming up short” instead. HA! I have to finish Coming Up Short, so I can put it on the shelf tomorrow for students. They’re going to love it! I love Laurie Morrison’s style and this middle-grade novel is also a Junior Library Guild selection, so you know it’s going to circulate in the library!

I’m rereading Worser by Jennifer Ziegler this week so I can take my copy to the National Book Festival on Saturday and have it signed by the author. I cannot wait to get my hands on They Call Her Fregona by David Bowles, too, who will present with Jennifer, and I’ll finally get to meet both of them IRL (in real life)!

It’s Monday! What are YOU reading?
