It’s Monday, [May 27]! What are you reading?


Every Most Mondays, I send out a #booksaroundtheroom via Twitter, so my students can share what they’re reading with the world. “It’s Monday! What are you Reading?” is a meme co-hosted by Jen and Kellee at Teach Mentor Texts. Just like #booksaroundtheroom, it is a way to share books you’ve been reading, reviewing, and loving during the last week. I read a lot, both on my own and with my two kids, Corbchops (1805 days) and The Iza (1049 days). I’m excited to hear what you’ve been reading.

Mon Reading Button PB to YA

Still reading. Been some colds making their way through our house. Which sometimes means, “Sit around reading because you’re sick,” and other times means, “Too tired to read because you’re sick.”

We also went camping in the pouring rain. Before we had kids, I would have just stayed in the tent all day and read or played games. But now we have two little kids, so reading can only happen for so long. I can’t wait for when my kids are old enough to read in a tent all day.

Here’s what I’ve enjoyed during the last week:

Middle Grade:

I finished one middle grade novel and one middle grade activity book last week.

Graphic Novels:

I finished two graphic novels and two mini-graphic novels last week. I love graphic novels!

Picture Books:

I read 13 picture books last week. My favorite three were:


On the TMCE Guys Read blog, I didn’t review anything last week. Which means I will try to write two this week.


Right now When I finish this blog post, I’m still reading:

A Hero’s Guide to Storming the Castle, by Christopher Healy


Book Love, by Penny Kittle


What are you reading?



  1. Great books! Hugo Cabret is one of my favorite. Funny story- I listened to the audiobook and had no idea that there was any illustrations. It wasn’t until I bought the book after reading from a book order that I saw the illustrations!
    Enjoy Book Love- it is amazing!

    • I don’t even know how they would do a Hugo audiobook!

      Really enjoying Book Love. Still relevant to upper elementary, and will be recommending it to all my middle school and high school teacher friends.

      This is insane to me! I would have felt so ripped off if I had listened to this book without the images! Now I’m curious as to how they pulled that off…

    I too love Hugo Cabret and A Big Guy Took My Ball! I hope you enjoy Christopher Healy’s books because I love recommending that.

    So. Are you thinking about doing the MotherReader 48 Hour Book Challenge? Better than Christmas, and coming up the weekend of 7-9 June. I’m out of school, which helps a lot, but it’s great fun if you can do it!
