One Of Us Is Lying | Karen McManus
post image
Pickpick

I really enjoy books where the story is told from multiple perspectives. This one did not disappoint. It is primarily a YA murder mystery, but spans themes of relationships, doping, alcoholism and addiction, lgbtq issues, privacy rights and more. This is an easy one to recommend to my students.

Trollkonstnaren I held the book once in my hand rejected it due to the recommendation for "young". (never judge the book....") So, your honest opinion: do you recommend only for younger audience? 2d
DebbieGrillo @Trollkonstnaren I thoroughly enjoy a lot of YA fiction but I know several adults who have read this one and loved it. My honest opinion is that if you like a good mystery and the themes I mentioned you'd love it. 2d
Trollkonstnaren @DebbieGrillo Ok, thanks :) Perhaps I give it a chance then and let the book speak itself :) 2d

I walked 5.3 K today while listening to the tagged book. #BFCr2 starts tomorrow and I'm so much more prepared this time. Last round, I suffered a spinal injury that persisted for weeks, and I wasn't interested in modifying my goals.

My goals are different this time. I won't be working, so I can expect a bit more from myself. I intend to walk at least 50000 steps a week and read 6 books in 6 weeks.

My summer starts a week from tomorrow and is just shy of 9 weeks. Nine weeks=nine books. I have one that I've been wanting to read for a long time, a sequel to a beloved series that I've been waiting until I had more time, two that I'm considering for whole class reads for my 11th graders next year, and the other five are YA titles that I think I'll love and want to recommend to my students. #summerreads

New Book of Old Hymns | Veronica Brandt
post image

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!
#friYAYintro @howjessreads

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! 2w
Crazeedi Old hymns yes yes yes. Wish I had thought of that, I sing them all the time 2w
RestlessFickleBookHoarder 3. I'm curious to know what books are on your 11th grade curriculum. 2w
See All 7 Comments
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. 2w
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. 2w
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. 2w
RvnclawWhovian Omg old hymns!! My grandma used to play a record all the time, can‘t remember the name of it now though 2w
