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 (10/5/2020-10/11/2020).

Annamarie’s Reading

Picture Books & Readers:

Everything Else:

Note: Lots going on in real life. Reading is still happening, though I’m currently just trying to power through the books that have sat on my nightstand or all of the ebooks that are due back essentially tomorrow. Not a great showing on diversity in my reading this week, though the chapter books that I read are all diverse authors and/or own voices, and all three are titles I want to book talk to kids, so I call that a reading win.

Make sure to stop by on Tuesdays for short reviews of some of these titles!

Stats for the Week:

  • 29 Books Read This Week
    • 11 Books with Diverse Main Character (38%)
    • 7 Books by Diverse Authors (24%)
    • 6 Books by Own Voices Authors (21%) (to the best of my knowledge)
