“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!
I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy! It’s definitely a scary, stressful time and I am so fortunate that I still have access to books as they’ve really helped in maintaining my mental health during social isolation.
- A Phoenix First Must Burn by Patrice Caldwell
- The Oracle Code by Marieke Nijkamp & Manuel Preitano
- Rules for Being a Girl by Candace Bushnell & Katie Cotugno
- In the Role of the Brie Hutchens by Nicole Melleby
- Black Brother, Black Brother by Jewell Parker Rhodes
- Snapdragon by Kat Leyh
- The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires by Grady Hendrix
- The Honey-Don’t List by Christina Lauren

I’ve definitely been spending a lot of time reading lately, and there have been so many amazing releases in 2020 so far!
- The Kingdom of Back by Marie Lu
- Late to the Party by Kelly Quindlen
- Mad, Bad & Dangerous to Know by Samira Ahmed
All three of these have been highly anticipated reads for me, so I’m excited to be starting them! Books have really been helping me get through social isolation, and I’m so grateful to have access to them.

Those covers are beautiful, I have never heard of any of these, but now I’m intrigued! Great post!
I’ve got Black Brother, Black Brother and Snapdragon in my stack! What did you think about them? Thanks for sharing with the #imwayr community, by the way!
Nice looking books! I’m doing a lot of rereading right now because concentration is an issue right now. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
So many great books this week! I put Black Brother, Black Brother on hold last week through Overdrive — I”m hoping it’ll be available very soon! Have a great (and safe) reading week, Ari!
Wow, you read both The Oracle Code and The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires, two books on the top of my TBR! I hope you enjoyed them. Have a great week!
Reading is a great distraction, when I can get myself to settle down to it! I like Grady Hendrix’s books; I forgot he has a new one coming out!
I’ve marked a few of your books, know many will be good. I have Black Brother, Black Brother so will get to it soon. Thanks, Ari. Best wishes to you & your family, too. Yes, a scary time!
I really enjoyed Black Brother, Black Brother, one of my favourites this year. I am interested in this Marie Lu book, but haven’t heard much yet. Thanks for the post!
Black Brother, Black Brother is on my list. I am not getting much reading accomplished these days. I’m packing up house to move at the end of the month and otherwise sewing facemasks.
Take care and stay safe.
