It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

We are joining the blog trend of Monday posts about what we have read during the last week (7/20/2020-7/26/2020).

Annamarie’s Reading

Picture Books & Readers:

Everything Else:

Note: I squeezed in a few more graphic novels this week. There is a big pile of j-fiction chapter books staring at me that I just haven’t had time for. Listening to a teen book, and will be spending part of next weekend reviewing another teen book, so I’m glad I’m fitting some more of those in this year.

I had a decrease in books with diverse main characters and diverse authors, BUT an increase in own voices, which is a number I really want to pay attention to. Just pulling these stats each week is making me more conscious of my reading choices. Stats:

  • 47 Books Read This Week
    • 23 Books with Diverse Main Character (49%)
    • 12 Books by Diverse Authors (25%)
    • 11 Books by Own Voices Authors (24%) (to the best of my knowledge)

This week’s reading highlights:

Michala’s Reading

Note: I took a few days off from work for a mental vacay and attempted the quarantine cleaning/organization thing that everyone else seems to have done at the beginning of this whole mess. My house now feels extra messy, Goodwill has gotten a lot of clothes from me, I am a craft supply hoarder, and I feel like I haven’t read anything.
