I cannot say how happy I am to actually have time to be reading now that school is out. Taking some time to relax and read while I get my car taken care of.❤️🚗 #schoolsoutforsummer #teachersoflitsy #readingmyanxietyaway #finallyrelaxed #kindlereads

Well I haven‘t posted for 5 months (#teachersoflitsy) but I‘ve read two books this weekend and am back in the swing of reading thanks to summer break(🙌). This was the last book I posted and I‘ve finally finished it tonight!

This was probably my favorite in the Grishaverse so far as I‘m more familiar with the world and terms. Not sure I loved the final surprise but I‘ll save final judgment for when I read the sequel.

Julsmarshall Glad to see you back! 1d

Too tired to even haul my butt to the beach so in between naps on my parents‘ front lawn, I read this decadent (though oddly full of typos) book that caters to my royals obsession.

On a related note, while I was opening my swap packages this morning, Faela (oldest stepdaughter) was practically drooling over it. Parents and teachers, who would be interested in doing a kids‘ book swap (if one doesn‘t already exist). I know my girls love getting mail and reading, and I know all of us teachers spend a butt ton of money on classroom libraries. #teachersoflitsy #litsyswaps #parentsoflitsy #momsoflitsy #dadsoflitsy #kidsoflitsy

SmartSassery I was thinking this for my little as well. 😍💕 Even a small penpal group. 3d
MolliesaurusRex @SmartSassery yesss! Obviously some planning time would need to go into it but I think it would be so great. I know as a stepmom and a teacher, I want to encourage as many children to read as much as they can as humanly possible! 3d
SmartSassery They would love it. I think this is a great plan. 3d

69/419 or 16% done with my #dickjourney . Currently Dillon and I are driving through Alberta in route from AK to ND. We've already driven 2070 miles! Moby Dick is a good read for the trip because: A. I have to finish it by fall to teach it somehow, and B. Dillon has read it before and thus is entertained by my reading sections aloud dramatically! #roadtrip #Canada #antitranscendentalism #teachersoflitsy

1. Old hymns. They make me emotional but I feel guilty sometimes because many of them carry messages opposite to my core beliefs.
2. Summer with autumn a close second. #teachersoflitsy
3. I'm a super eclectic reader, but YA. I teach 11th grade English.
4. First day at school without students. Hoping I can talk my colleagues into going out. If not, home for leftovers.
5. Will do!

lahousewyfe So there with you on those old hymns. I grew up with them and even have a CD of my uncles singing them. Those melodies are so sweet, but the words...oh my goodness. Amazing Grace always makes me cringe! 4d
Crazeedi Old hymns yes yes yes. Wish I had thought of that, I sing them all the time 4d
RestlessFickleBookHoarder 3. I'm curious to know what books are on your 11th grade curriculum. 4d

DebbieGrillo @RestlessFickleBookHoarder there are no specific required books on our curriculum. Our curriculum in New Brunswick is quite Progressive and it focuses on skills and literacy rather than literature. This year I Read To Kill a Mockingbird with my 11th graders. Next year I am considering The Marrow Thieves or The 57 Bus. TKAM is comfortable for me but they don't love it. I will also do Macbeth. 4d
Hoopiefoot Right there with you on old hymns. Grew up in the church & my first job was a church pianist. I‘m not religious any more but they‘re ingrained in me like nothing else. Often find them popping into my head on long hikes & runs. 4d
RestlessFickleBookHoarder I wish our district didn't have required books. Actually ours has a list teachers can choose from so I guess that's better than nothing. TKAM is a 9th grade book here, but in my not and English teacher opinion there are better options than that. 4d
RvnclawWhovian Omg old hymns!! My grandma used to play a record all the time, can‘t remember the name of it now though 4d

It's fitting that I finished this at the beach today. Thankfully I didn't encounter any pirates or sea dragons in the process 🐉 This book is exactly what I expected and wanted it to be: a fun, female-centric adventure. It's refreshing to read #YA that isn't even peripherally about romantic relationships. I knew Felicity would be an interesting protagonist, but Monty still makes me laugh out loud.

4. #pokemongo or is that what the cool kids are doing? I'm too old.
