It's Monday! What Are You Reading? From Picture Books to YA


I'm back after three weeks of neglecting to post my reads. And, honestly, I'm too tired and swamped with other stuff to go back and try to post them retroactively. Sometimes, you have to cut your losses and move on!

This week it's pretty obvious that I focused on reading graphic novels/comics and books about butterflies. I think I've mentioned before that I default to reading GNs/comics when I feel a bit too overwhelmed to start a chapter book but I need to be reading something. And I have a read-aloud for The Reading Connection this coming week, hence the caterpillar/butterfly-themed books. 

I decided to omit the "What I'm Reading Now" and "What I Plan to Read This Week" sections because having them looming over me unchanged from previous weeks when I know I won't get around to those books makes me feel guilty!

[To rehash the concept :: post what you read last week, what you're reading now, and what you plan to read this week. If you have a review of the book(s), great! If you have a picture of the book(s), wonderful! If you have a book giveaway, fantastic! If you just list the title(s) of the book(s), not a problem! Make it as simple or as complex as you need it to be. At least, that's the message I got. This version of the meme is hosted by Jen and Kellee of Teach Mentor Text, which, in turn, was inspired by Sheila over at Book Journey, who hosts the original It's Monday! What Are You Reading?]
