It's Monday! What are you reading? Is a wonderful community of readers, teachers, and librarians. Hosted by Jen over at Teach Mentor Texts along with Kellee and Ricki at Unleashing Readers, participants share their reading adventures from the past week along with their reading plans for the week ahead.
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.
Last week I had the pleasure of announcing ALAN's Amelia Elizabeth Walden Award. Go check out my post to find out who the winner is...
2020 Amelia Elizabeth Walden Award Winner
If you are a teacher, professor, or librarian and you love YA lit, consider applying for the 2021 Walden committee.
Last week I finished reading:
On the Horizon by Lois Lowry
|This book defies genre and format. It seems like a novel in verse, but it's not long enough to be a novel. It's also not a poetry collection because it still tells a story. It's hard to understand what this book is until you read the author's note at the end, which is a great reminder to always read the backmatter.|
Currently (still) reading:
Dancing at the Pity Party by Tyler Feder
Currently reading with my ears:
Clap When You Land by Elizabeth Acevedo
