“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’m on my library’s planning committee for our Book To Action program, and Just Mercy is the book we’re focusing on. I’ll mostly be working on getting teens involved in the project, so I’m reading the YA adaptation to get ready!

Ooh these are cool books! I’ve heard of ‘I’ll Be Home For Christmas’ what did you think of it?
My aim for 2021 is to expand the genres and types of books I read, along with reading some non-fiction and there are several books on here that have already caught my eye. Hope your 2021 is safer and more positive than 2020 has been.
Your books look tempting! Enjoy your week and your books, and here are my WEEKLY UPDATES
Nice looking assortment of books both read and upcoming. Come see my week here. Happy reading and happy new year!
It looks like you have been reading some fabulous books. Happy New Year!
I adored Rachel Lynn Solomon’s debut novel and have been hearing great things about The Ex Talk. Can’t wait to read it! Have a very Happy New Year!
I’m glad you had a good reading week! My sibling actually just bought copies of A Cuban Girl’s Guide to Tea and Tomorrow and Super Fake Love Song, and they’ve also been wanting me to read the Heartstoppers series for a while now (which I should really do). I just got a copy of Deaver’s book I Wish You All the Best, and I didn’t know that it had a sequel! Thanks for the great post, and have a happy new year!
Such a happy collection of books! I love seeing books with happy, joyous people on the covers, it’s the jolt of merriness I need amidst all the doom and gloom these days. ❤
Heartstopper looks interesting, but I’m especially excited about A Cuban Girl’s Guide to Tea and Tomorrow which my library has on order!
