Another day, another YA book for next year‘s planning. Now onto the sequel.

(This series is a little dark for my taste, but... I definitely can see why my students enjoy it.)

One of the few I‘m currently reading. It‘s hooked me, I might be able to finish this tonight. Lately, my thing is heavy YA novels. 🤷🏻‍♀️🤓

It took me more than a month to read this, but that was my problem. Once I had a chance to devote more than 10 minutes to reading, the pages just flew by. This book should be in everyone's hand. This should have been a Netflix series. Not that POS 13 Reasons Why.

I miss Litsy. I've been reading the tagged book for over a month (I love it.) I'm still in a reading slump and this school year is kicking my butt. I love my job. Don't get me wrong. There's just not enough time in the day (and I admit it, I'm too hooked on TV right now.)

Cailey_Mac Sometimes that‘s what you need though; I remember last year there was a 4 month span that I read maybe 2-3 books, but I actually watched tv shows and had a busy social calendar. It sucks, but sometimes change from reading can help rekindle it. 1y
scripturient Don‘t be too hard on yourself. Life just gets in the way sometimes and it sucks but there‘ll come a time when you‘re back in reading mood. 😘 1y
Dragon I‘m a firm believer in mood reading. 🌸🤗🐉 1y

rabbitprincess ♥️♥️ Hope the school year stops kicking your butt soon, and that you're watching some great TV! Reading will come back eventually. 1y
Sace @Cailey_Mac @scripturient @Dragon @Slajaunie @rabbitprincess Thank you! Eventually I might get my reading groove back. Right I just seem interested in other things. 1y
EmilyM I hear you! I have been reading the same book for a month, I started back at school, teaching, and I am teaching a new curriculum so I am EXHAUSTED every night....too exhausted to read. It makes me sad. 1y
Sace @EmilyM PREACH! I have two preps this year. One for a level I haven't taught in a decade and one for a level I taught before going digital so I am doing a TON of planning and prep for both. I'm loving it but it's time consuming and I don't have much attention left at the end of the day. 1y
Bookladylinda I totally get the hanging out in front of the TV, that happens to me too - reading will come back to you, it always does! Hang in there!!!! 🤗 1y
CoffeeK8 I know exactly what you mean, I inhaled all my books in August, knowing I‘d have no time for reading next month 1y
Reviewsbylola It happens to all of us! You‘ll be back. ❤️ 1y
Jinjer Totally get the TV distraction. I just finished bingeing all 6 seasons of Girls. 😳 1y
Sace @Bookladylinda Thanks! 1y
Sace @CoffeeK8 I they to make time but after 2 pages I'm usually asleep. 1y
Sace @Jinjer I'm hooked in a Spanish soap opera 🙄 1y
readordierachel Hang in there! You'll get your reading mojo back. Until then, nothing wrong with TV 😊 1y

This line for Sharon Draper is the culmination of all the little boys and girls that have wanted to talk to me about her books. Well warranted, and so cool to see all the love for a deserving writer. #ncte17 #itsLITerature #teachersoflitsy

Chelleo Sharon Draper taught at my high school. I avoided her class for fear of the dreaded “Draper Paper” but thankfully had another great, but lesser known, English teacher who rapped the Canterbury Tales 😂😂😂 2y
MisterWhitaker @Chelleo sounds like you had the best of both worlds lol 2y

This realistic fiction Corretta Scott King award winning book is another book the is perfect for literature circles in upper middle school. It is about a teenage boy who accidentally kills his best friend when drunk driving. I would use this book in my classroom to teach a lesson and educate my students about this topic. I would show them this drunk driving awareness video that is related to the topic of the book. https://youtu.be/NVJba-2WYEM

MakennaK I will use ELL 11, place language in meaningful context, to really help them understand the message of the book. I'll use UDL 9.3, develop reflection, and have my students reflect and think about the message and lesson in this beautiful book. #ucflae3414f17 2y
DrSpalding Thank you for noting the fact that these books are more appropriate for middle and or high school. She is an amazing author. 11 is perfect! 2y

Tears of a Tiger is a well-written novel. The characters are quite real, although it can be hard to follow. This book is rather heavy in some parts, particularly the ending; it discusses topics such as death, grief, depression, and suicide. If readers have experienced suicidal thoughts, it's best to avoid this book for personal safety because of a depiction of suicide.

This book made me super sad like this story is just a roller coater of emotions but if you really wanna understand things that happen in it you have to read Forged by Fire first then this but over and all the whole series is really good

"Suppose it's more than just thinkin' about death in general. Suppose I told you I sometimes think about killin' myself."
