It's Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme hosted by Kathryn at Book Date. Kellee Moye, of Unleashing Readers, and Jen Vincent of Teach Mentor Texts decided to give It's Monday! What Are You Reading? a kid lit focus. We encourage everyone who participates to visit at least three of the other kid lit book bloggers that link up and leave comments for them.
Last week, we a super busy week, so I didn’t get through as many books as I hoped. Also, I started several books and rotating through them.
Here’s what I read this past week…
Another by Christian Robinson (Simon & Schuster, March 5, 2019) - This comes out tomorrow and is a wonderful wordless picture book.
Becoming by Michelle Obama (Random House Audio, 2018) - Audiobooks tend to take awhile for me to read since I don’t have a particularly long commute and I tend to save them for when I will be in the car for a bit longer. I enjoyed Obama’s narration of her memoir.
Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow (Nevermoor #1) by Jessica Townsend (Little, Brown Books for Young Children, 2017) - A friend recommended the audiobook and I am only listening to this on longer drives. It definitely has a wonderful narrator and the premise of the book is fascinating.
Iliad by Gareth Hinds (Candlewick Press, March 12, 2019) - I recently received this book from Candlewick and it is a beautiful companion to Hinds’ Odyssey graphic novel.
The Library Book by Susan Orleans (Simon & Schuster, 2018) - This is one of 12 books on my adult book reading challenge for the year.
Deep Work: Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World by Cal Newport (Grand Central Publishing, 2016) - My one little word for this year is FOCUS. I have a few books that I have marked to read on the topic and this is the first one. I will probably follow up with a separate blog post in the future.
So, what are you reading?
