“It’s Monday! What are you reading?” is a weekly meme hosted by Book Date. The folks at Teacher Mentor Texts and Unleashing Readers have given #IMWAYR a new lens by focusing on books for kids & teens. Check out their blogs to see what they’re reading!
Yikes, life has been super busy! In the last few weeks, I haven’t been able to stick to my normal blogging schedule but I’m trying really hard this week to get back on track. I’m excited to talk about what I’ve been reading!

- Better Than the Best Plan by Lauren Morrill
WHAT I’M READING THIS WEEK:
Technically, You Started It by Lana Wood Johnson
I just started this YA contemporary told entirely in text messages and am just about finished! The format makes it a super quick read. It’s all about two teens who form a close bond via texting but with one major misunderstanding: one of them thinks she’s texting a completely different person than who’s really on the other end of the phone.
This is a quick read that I can definitely see teens loving! I appreciate that it has bi rep and demisexual rep, which there is hardly any of in YA!
Thanks I Read YA for the review copy! Technically, You Started It is out on June 25.
Wilder Girls by Rory Power
A part of me cannot believe I’m starting on July releases, but the other part is so excited that I can finally start one of my most anticipated reads of the year! This YA book is about three teen girls in quarantine at their island boarding school as they await the cure for the Tox, a virus that has swept the island. When one of the girls goes missing, her friends must venture outside of the safety of their school to find her.
Described as a feminist Lord of the Flies, Wilder Girls has been one of my most anticipated books for a while! It sounds twisted, spooky, and amazing. I can’t wait to dive in!
Thanks Get Underlined for the review copy! Wilder Girls is out on July 9.
