It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? #IMWAYR 12/19/22

I’m starting my bookish New Year’s resolutions early this year, probably because winter break started this week. My only resolution: blog more. It’s been an inconsistent year, and I miss it.

So where better to start with It’s Monday, What Are You Reading?

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly blog hop co-hosted by Unleashing Readers and Teach Mentor Texts which focuses on sharing books marketed for children and young adults. It offers opportunities to share and recommend books with each other.

Unleashing Readers

This week I’m listening to We Deserve Monuments by Jas Hammonds, courtesy of’s ALC program. I’m at about 73% and only turned it off just now because the protagonists made a decision that makes me nervous. Because, yes, even though I know they’re fictional characters, I still have a hard time watching them step in it.

I’m also reading I Rise by Marie Arnold. In the photo below, it’s hanging out with my great-grandfather’s typewriter.

I’ll throw my academic reading in here too, just for giggles. I’m starting a book called Raciolinguistics: How Language Shapes Our Ideas about Race edited by H. Samy Ali, John R. Rickford, and Aretha F. Ball. I’m interested in the topic, but I’m also interested in how this will influence the teaching of my sociolinguistics class in the spring.

And that’s what I’m reading this week. What are you reading?

Until next time: happy reading and don’t forget to be awesome.
