It's Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journeys. Jen Vincent ofTeach Mentor Texts and Kellee Moye of Unleashing Readers decided to give It's Monday! What Are You Reading? a kidlit focus. It is a great way to recap what you read and/or reviewed the previous week and to plan out your reading and reviews for the upcoming week. It's also a great chance to see what others are reading right now...you just might discover your next “must-read” book!
Last week was my "catch-up" post. It was a big post. Today, I am calling this the comic book/graphic novel edition. I was trying to catch up on some graphic novels and though I did not do as well as I had hoped to do, I did get in some good ones. Also, if you missed out on the Eisner Award Winners, here is a link to the list of winners. I am hoping to catch up on the ones for children that I have yet to read.
My Reviews from last week:
Wish by Matthew Cordell
Space Boy and His Dog by Dian Curtis Regan; Illustrated by Robert Neubecker
What I read:
Little Robot by Ben Hatke (First Second, September 1, 2015) - This nearly wordless, graphic novel about friendship for younger readers is super wonderful. I can't wait to see the finished copy in September.
The Stratford Zoo Midnight Review: Romeo & Juliet by Ian Lendler; Illustrated by Zack (First Second, September 29, 2015) - Shakespeare in a comic book form for kids...simply a lot of fun.
G-Man: Learning to Fly Vol. 1 by Chris Giarrusso (Image Comics, October 2015) - I know a lot of 9 & 10 year olds who will enjoy this series.
Ms. Marvel: Vol. 1 by G. Willow Wilson; Illustrated by Adrian Alphona (Marvel, October 2014) - Why have I not read this series earlier? I loved it. Glad there are two more volumes to read.
Gotham Academy: Vol. 1 by Becky Cloonan, Brenden Fletcher; Illustrations by Karl Kerschil (DC Comics, June 17, 2015) - Another fun new series set in the the DC Comics universe. I may have to get individual issues since volume 2 won't be out until March 2016.
So, what are you reading?
