This is my first attempt at a "It's Monday, What Are You Reading?" post. I've looked at some other blogs, and am feeling a bit overwhelmed at how inadequate my blog seems, and how much has changed in the past year that I've been neglecting blogs. So these are my stumbling first steps. I may not get all the attributes or links right, but I'm learning.
It's Monday, What Are You Reading? is hosted by Jen and Kellee at Teach Mentor Texts.
It was originally hosted by Sheila at Book Journey, but Jen & Kellee put a Picture Book to YA spin on it.
Since school ended on June 14, I've been trying to do #bookaday. Between wrapping up school and trying to get ready to move, I've not had the time to read that I would like during vacation. I keep reminding myself that it is only June and I still have two months ahead of me! My strategy for summer reading is to alternate between books I need to read for school and books I want to read for myself.
Clicking on the book's title will take you to it's page on GoodReads.
