#IMWAYR Aug 21

It's Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Date. It is a great way to recap what you read and/or reviewed the previous week and to plan out your reading and reviews for the upcoming week. It's also a great chance to see what others are reading right now… who knows, you might discover that next “must read” book!
Our Kid Lit to YA version is hosted by Teach Mentor Texts and Unleashing Readers.

I just flew back this afternoon from my brother's wedding.
Real life reentry ... is not the most fun. Gonna be a long one. Nothing to do but jump in.

Goodbye Days is a YA title I read on the plane. Well written (about a teen who accidentally (?) sends a text while his friends are driving and they have an accident and die) ... and SAD. Gut wrenching. :( Well written but wow :(.

Creepy Pair of Underwear. Ridiculous. Utterly ridiculous. I cannot read it without laughing myself. Can't wait to share it with kiddos. In fact have planned a Skype chat with nieces and nephews because it was delivered Thursday and I was so beflustered from our first day of PD for the year (more on that later) and packing for the quick trip to the wedding that I didn't bring it with me. I SHOULD HAVE.

Nerdy Birdy. Yes, I read them out of order. SO CUTE. Love this one, too.

Nothing Rhymes with Orange. A good one for the beginning of the year and community building/ reminders for kindness always.

Earth Children are Weird is not really for kids. The art is adorable and I may still share it with the upper level grades as a slightly spooky read aloud but unless their parents have made them watch X Files (and let's face it that is not a kid's show) they won't really get it.

This week? I may get some audiobook hours in but that may be it. Crazy long with BTS stuff and then genius church people scheduled something on Saturday. :/ That's a terrible attitude. I get anything in I will be happy. Is what it is, right? More reading time will come in a week or two.


  1. I know you are always very busy, but you might want to think about applying to be a SECOND round Cybils judge. 5-7 books in a month or so? Something to consider.

    1. Hmmm. That is a thought! Would be fun. I applied once ... maybe twice before? I tend to post most of my reviews, short as they are, on Goodreads, though. Then more snippets here. Never have found the right ... groove. Should go back and look. Some are more detailed on here. Question are are they on one I'd be a contender for a panelist. Cause I read some of everything! Picture and mid for school and personal. YA for personal. Hmmmm ... got me thinking now!
