Book Journey, Jen over at Teach Mentor Texts along with Kellee and Ricki at Unleashing Readers also host a kidlit version of It's Monday! What are You Reading?
My Monday posts are generally just a highlight of what I've been reading
during the week so if you'd like to see all that I've been reading,
follow my Goodreads page.
Happy ALA Youth Media Awards Day! I am so excited because on this very day, I will be in Chicago in the very room where the Youth Media Awards will be announced. I can't wait! On Friday I posted my hopes and wishes for the awards this year so we'll see if any of them come true.
Last week I finished reading with my ears:
Positive: A Memoir by Paige Rawl
A page-turning book that I
couldn't put down (or couldn't stop listening to as it were). Paige
Rawl's experience with bullying in middle school because of her HIV
Positive status is heart-wrenching. I couldn't help agonize over how the
adults in her life wronged her so so profoundly.
Favorite picture book from last week:
Zombie in Love 2+1 by Kelly DiPucchio, illustrated by Scott Campbell
Strange but also funny and endearing. Not something I'd usually think to describe a book about zombies.
The War That Saved My Life by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley
Currently reading with my ears:
Kinda Like Brothers by Coe Booth
