It's Monday! What are you reading?

Every Monday, the awesome duo at Teach Mentor Texts hosts their What Are You Reading? meme so that anyone who loves children's literature can share the titles they've recently enjoyed as well as their reading plans for the week!  Thanks, Jen and Kellee!
Be sure to head over to the Teach Mentor Texts blog to find out what everyone else is reading!

Last night, I stayed up (past my bedtime) to finish David Levithan's Every Day-the story of A, who wakes up every morning in a different person's body.  A usually spends his days trying to change as little as possible in the life he's inhabiting, but that all changes when he meets Rhiannon.  This is an inventive and unconditional story about the sacrifices we make for love; a great young adult read!

I also finally read Pete the Cat: Rocking in My School Shoes this week, and it was just as entertaining as Pete's other books.  What a great back to school story!

This week, these two titles are at the top of my TBR pile.  I'll be honest, I'm eager to read The Year of the Book because I'm in love with the cover.  So much for not judging a book by its cover!

I'm also hoping to get back into the swing of reading more picture books this week!

Have a great week, everyone!


  1. Pete the Cat: Rocking in my School Shoes was on my reading list each day since school started. It's a great way to start off Kindergarten, especially on my schedule when I see them first thing in the morning. It's also great because the kids don't say "I've already read that!" Instead I heard, "oooh, Pete!"

  2. I'm a big fan of David Levithan , so this book will be one I will have to check out.

  3. I've heard so many great things about David Levithan, and this book in particular. I should get around to reading his works. I'm glad you shared about The Year of the Book as we will be launching our Books about Books bimonthly theme soon. Will definitely look for this book in our libraries. :)
