It's Monday! What are you reading? From Picture Books to YA (30)

It's Monday! What are you reading? is hosted by Sheila of Book Journey. Jen & Kellee from Teach Mentor Texts have adapted this to focus on Picture Books to Young Adult Books.

I had one of those weeks where despite reading quite a few books very few seriously jumped out at me.  As a result, I am only sharing two things.  I am looking forward to a better reading week.  

Here are my favorites from my the past week's reading adventures:

Amulet Vol. 5: Prince of the Elves by Kazu Kibuishi - The fifth installment in Kibuishi's popular (and I mean popular) graphic novel series comes out on September 1st.  I can't wait to hold the final copy in my hands.  It was great to read an Advance Readers Copy but I love the color illustrations in the final version.  Readers of the series will love the new volume. 

BabyLit Board Books by Jennifer Adams; Illustrated by Alison Oliver - Classic literature gets a make over in the form of baby board books and early concepts such as counting and colors.  Fun series to read and share.

So, what are you reading this week?

I think I might actually have to organize my books for reading.  It is easy to get lost in the piles of books.  How are you doing with your summer reading?
