My Week in the Books {15}
Posted December 4, 2017 / Books & Reading, My Week In The Books

What Happened: This week was a “get back in the swing of things” week. After a lovely week-long Thanksgiving break, I had to figure out what my plans were for this month. And let me tell you, there are a lot! I got a lot of planning done for this upcoming week which I can’t wait to share with you! I also created a school library Instagram (follow us @tarranthslibrary) and started using social media […]

Reading Round-Up: November 2017
Posted December 3, 2017 / Book Talks, Books & Reading

Reading Round-Up is an end of the month recap of my reading life, including books read, reading stats, and reading challenge updates! It’s just an easy way for me to track my reading life! November felt, overall, like a month of rejuvenation for me. I got some much needed rest, some much needed mental health recovery, and some much needed reading time. I am going to keep up this rest and recovery through December, in […]

Monthly Stack is a new monthly feature where I will share some of the new month’s releases I am looking forward to the most. I will highlight a handful in the hopes of sharing my interest, either personally or for my school library! December is the lightest month of publishing of the year. So this post will also feature 2017 releases that I didn’t feature/know about for my other Monthly Stack posts. Covers link to […]

What Happened: I had the entire week of Thanksgiving off. And I took the entire week off. I had a couple of chill days where I read a lot. I had a day of running errands and cleaning the apartment. I spent a few days at my parents house for Thanksgiving. I played games. I watched football. I enjoyed the fall weather. It was a lovely break from real life. But tomorrow it is back […]

What Happened: I HAVE MADE IT TO THANKSGIVING BREAK! Y’all, I really don’t think I have needed a break from school as much as I do this week. This week was accreditation for the school, so things were just a little extra hectic. But we survived. And to end out the week, I created a life-size Candyland board on International Game Day. The kids came in all day and played! It was so great to […]

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme create at The Broke and the Bookish. Today’s Top Ten Tuesday is: Ten Books I Can’t Wait To Read Aloud to My Future Children! Ever since I read The Reading Promise a few years ago, I have been thinking about all of the books I would get to read aloud to and with my future children. I am looking forward to these special memories that we will […]

My Week In The Books {12}
Posted November 6, 2017 / Books & Reading, My Week In The Books

What Happened: I’ll be honest: I am tired. This time of the year is always exhausting. The lack of sunlight doesn’t really help. I am just in “trying not to get sick” mode right now (but I do feel a sinus infection coming on). I did do a little bit of after Halloween retail therapy this week though. That made me happy.  And my school’s football team made the playoffs! They have been working really hard […]

Reading Round-Up is an end of the month recap of my reading life, including books read, reading stats, and reading challenge updates! It’s just an easy way for me to track my reading life! My reading life took a hit this month because of my #31nightsofhorror movie challenge. But that’s okay. I am prepped and ready to read a lot in November. 🙂 Also, I didn’t finish a single audiobook this month! I got 14 […]
