Jen and Kellee host a weekly meme called "What Are You Reading? From Picture Books to YA." It encourages you to share what you read during the previous week and to plan what you're going to read/review during the current week. Thank you, Kelly and Jen, for hosting this fun meme.
Unfortunately, I did not read a lot last week. Fortunately, I gave away a lot of books last week. Below is a recap of the books I gave away on this blog and via spontaneous Twitter giveaways.
