What I Might Read Next

What are you reading today?!



It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is where we share what we read this past week, what we hope to read this week…. and anything in between!  This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from!

I love being a part of this and I hope you do too! As part of this weekly meme Book Journey loves to encourage you all to go and visit the others participating in this meme. Book Journey offers a weekly contest for those who visit 10 or more of the Monday Meme participants and leave a comment telling BJ how many you visited.

  1. I haven't read The Loop but I have really loved all of Joe Coomer's books that I have read so I imagine this is a good one too. :-)

    1. We have a bird, so the bird in the book strikes me as a particularly realistic character.

  15. You certainly had a big reading week. I could only ever manage to finish 4 picture books in a week, not 4 grown up books.
