What I’m Reading…

So, this section is becoming more and more chaotic by the day, but I’m reading quite a bit right now. Some of it is for school (things that my students are or will be reading), and some of it is for my own personal reading. So until the end of the school year, I’m going to break it down and let you know what titles I’m reading in both areas of my life! Continue reading

What I’m Reading & Writing Wednesday

Hello friends! Welcome to What I’m Reading and Writing Wednesday. It’s been a while. I’m still trying to come up with a blogging and writing schedule that works around substitute teaching. This is a weekly feature (or it’s supposed to be) that is inspired by WWW Wednesday hosted by Sam over at Taking on a World of Words. Another great feature is My Week in Books over at Lipsyy Lost and Found.

Here’s what I’ve been reading…

I just finished…

Girl on a Wire by Gwenda Bond. The biggest thing that I loved about this book was seeing the circus life from the point of view of someone who loves and lives it.

And I also read Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon. I adored this book. While the story of the boy/girl in a bubble is an old one, Yoon brought a fresh perspective and a unique voice to this story. I loved this book so much that I devoured the whole novel in less than 24 hours!

I’m currently reading…

Carry On by Rainbow RowellI feel like I’ve waited so long to read Carry On and when I saw it at the library last week I had to grab it. If you don’t know already, I’m pretty obsessed with Rainbow Rowell’s books and this book had the potential to be my favorite Rowell book yet!

What I’m reading next…

Landline by Rainbow RowellLandline by Rainbow Rowell. I picked this book up over the summer in a bargain books section (and was so stoked!) and haven’t had the chance to read it yet. I think I will need more Rainbow Rowell after finishing Carry On.  (This is not the cover I have, but I love this one!)

What I’m Writing…

TGGC has been slowing down for me a bit as I prepare for NaNoWriMo next month. I need a break from it and to play with new characters and a new world for a while, which I’m pretty excited for. But I would like to finish up chapters 21 and 22 of TGGC before October 31st, so I feel less guilty about doing NaNoWriMo.

I’m writing some posts for the next 10 days of NaNoWriMo prep as well, so stay tuned for those. This blog will be much busier in the coming months.

What are you reading and writing this week?

Hello and welcome to What I’m Reading and Writing Wednesday, my spin on WWW Wednesday, hosted by Sam over at Taking on a World of Words and My Week in Books over at Lipsyy Lost and Found. This week I’m posting it a bit later in the day than usual, but that’s because I spent the morning subbing in a middle school.

So let’s chat about what I’m reading this week…

I just finished.

theassassinsbladeThe Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas. I ended up really enjoying this book, especially the novellas that were a bit longer than the first two. I liked that each story led into the next one. It was awesome to see Sam Cortland (finally) even though I knew what happened to him. Continue reading

The Diviners by Libba Bray. I first read this book way back when I started this blog, already being a fan of Bray’s Gemma Doyle trilogy. See that review here. I must say that I love The Diviners even more the second time around. The characters were so layered and had quirks, flaws, and dark secrets. As some people in my book club have mentioned, I was kind of disappointed in the lack of wrap-up on some of the character’s stories. However I am so excited for the sequel to come out next month and will probably be reading it this fall. Continue reading

What I’m Reading….

I just finished…

Fairest by Marissa Meyer and Hollow City by Ransom Riggs. I will do a book talk for my YouTube channel about Fairest. Hollow City was a really fun read that picked up where Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children left off. I liked this book just as much, if not more than the first book. To me, it felt more urgent and action packed and we got to know the characters a bit more. Continue reading

I just finished…

Miss-PeregrinesMiss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs (finally). I liked this book a lot, but it took forever for me to finish. I’m going to chalk that up to the fact that it was a re-read for me. I usually don’t trudge through re-reads though. Continue reading

throne-of-glass-coverI’ve been meaning to read Throne of Glass for a while now, and with the next book coming out soon, I figured that I should get on it. This book has been sitting on my shelves for a few months now and with the issues I’ve been having with my current read, I needed to set that aside and step into Caleana Sardothien’s world.
