It's Monday! What are you reading? #16

It's Monday! What are you reading? is the original weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.  It's Monday! What are you reading? - from Picture Books to YA is a kidlit focused meme just like the original and is hosted weekly by Teach Mentor Texts.  The purpose is the same: to recap what you have read and/or reviewed and to plan out your reading and reviews for the upcoming week.

Last week, I was having a lot of work done in my apartment, and my refrigerator went kaputt on me, so I had a lot of waiting time to do nothing but read.  I read and reviewed the following books:

1- Ice Cream Summer by Peter Sís
    Scholastic Press, 2015, 40 pages (age 4+)

2- 101 Things To Do Before You Grow Up by Laura Dower
    Walter Foster, Jr., 2015, 144 pages (age 8+)

3- Pool by JiHyeon Lee
    Chronicle Books, 2015, 56 pages (age 4+)

4- Swimming, Swimming by Gary Clement
    Groundwood Books, 2015, 48 pages (age 5+)

I read but have not reviewed these books:

1- Goodbye Stranger by Rebecca Stead
2- Sunny Side Up by Jennifer L. Holm and Matthew Holm
3- Me Being Me Is Exactly As Insane As You Being You by Todd Hasak-Lowy
4- The Safest Lie by Angela Cerrito

This week I have a lot of picture books to catch up on.  Some of them are

I think it's going to be a good reading week.

What are you reading this week?


  1. All great picture books that I have in my stacks too! I really enjoyed Goodbye Stranger and I'm looking forward to Sunny Side Up. I've heard wonderful things!

  2. Isn't it funny that recent books out are Pool and Float and Swimming, Swimming? All of these I'd like to read, especially here in the summertime, or maybe better in the winter? Thanks for the titles, Alex.

  3. I enjoyed reading your reviews of these "summer books". I do love the pool, and can't imagine having a chlorine allergy that would make me stay out-- ugh! That's cruddy! I'm anxious to read Goodbye, Stranger and Sunny Side Up-- both books are on my TBR list. Me Being Me... is a title I haven't heard about before, but you definitely have me curious about that one. I'm going to have to take a look! Have a great week!
