Greetings from a very snowy Connecticut! I woke up this morning to winter storm Barbara dumping unexpected inches of snow upon us. Good news is school is closed today and everyone (even teachers) love a snow day! So I am here nice and early with a Friday Reads for you. I have been very indecisive… Continue reading A Snowy Friday Reads!
January was a pretty good reading month for me. I read three things…a novella, a short story and one novel. My first book of the year was Maybe Not by Colleen Hoover. Here is an excerpt from Goodreads: Colleen Hoover, the New York Times bestselling author of Maybe Someday brilliantly brings to life the story of the wonderfully hilarious… Continue reading January Wrap Up!
So, I have another reading resolution. I can’t remember how the resolution came to me. I think I was watching Youtube and someone mentioned that Jane Austen only wrote six books in her lifetime (two of them being published after her death). I thought that it would be cool to read all of her novels.… Continue reading 2016: The year of Austen

This month, I got a lot of reading done. Surprisingly, two of the seven books I read this month were nonfiction. As a person who usually only reads fiction, I am pretty proud of that accomplishment. I hope to continue reading nonfiction books in the future. Here is what I read this month! Ms. Marvel… Continue reading June Wrap Up and July TBR!
After an unexpected hiatus, I am finally back! I did not expect to take such a long break. Between teaching 24 fourth graders, going to grad school and just life, I have been very busy. But now it is summer vacation and I want to get back into blogging. This summer you can expect: More… Continue reading Finally! I’m Back!
I had such a great time doing the Dewey’s 24 Hour read-a-thon. I posted a few updates throughout the day, but I got a lot of reading done. When I heard about this read-a-thon, I was excited to join in. Unlike Dewey’s, this is a weeklong read-a-thon that runs from May 11th to May 17th.… Continue reading Bout of Books 13 Read-a-thon!
