It’s Monday! What are you reading? September 30, 2019

“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!






So many amazing reads! The Arrival of Someday destroyed me, and SLAY is now one of my favorites of 2019. Pumpkinheads put me in such a fall mood!





  • Dear Sweet Pea by Julie Murphy: Julie’s one of my favorite authors ever, and I’m so excited to read her middle grade debut about a girl dealing with divorce (out on October 1). Plus it wins major points for having an orange cat on the cover! Thanks Balzer + Bray for the free review copy!
  • Pet by Akwaeke Emezi: This YA debut about a black trans girl living in a utopian society where monsters have been eradicated has been getting rave reviews. I just started the audiobook and am loving it so far!
  • The Alchemyst by Michael Scott: Totally different from my normal kind of reading, this one’s for the middle grade book club that I oversee at one of my libraries!


What are you reading this week?

  1. The Alchemyst looks interesting! I’m not sure what I’m reading this week yet, but I’m super excited about the new Philip Pullman – so that’s my weekend sorted, for sure!


  2. So many awesome books! Pumpkinheads is so awesome and put me in such a mood for all things fall (even when I live in the tropics lol)! SLAY also sounds so freaking good! Hope you enjoy what you read this week 😊
