Due to changing positions at work, I've been struggling to find time to read recently. Finally this long weekend has provided me with an abundance of reading time and I've gotten most of my lesson plans finished. HOORAY! This book is pretty hilarious and so unique. I've enjoyed every bit of it the illustrations are dark, but with a touch of whimsy. #mtanderson #eugeneyelchin #illustratedreading #justread #longweekend #whimsy #comical

"Sadie" was the first book I picked up for summer reading. At first, I was really excited to read this novel. But as I read reviews my excitement waned, there were multiple that said it was underwhelming/disappointing. I almost DNFed this book, but I'm glad I didn't set it aside. and I felt goes in a direction where most YA books don't usually follow. This is not a book for people who like neat little endings. #truecrime #thumbsup #summerreading

The Enchanted April | Elizabeth Arnim

Even though I didn't devote the time to this book that I felt like it deserved, I loved it!! Arnim's novel definitely caught me off guard with it's awkward moments. This is definitely a book that needs to be read on a vacation or during the summer, without distractions.

Although I'm behind for last month's #modernmrsdarcy book club pick, I do enjoy this novel. I can relate to many of the characters and their "anti-social" behaviors. ? #introvert #readreadread #alwaysbehind #workingonit

It's been a bit since I've posted, but that doesn't mean I haven't been reading. :) Lately, I've been working on the goal of getting through the whole Nancy Drew series this year. These are easy reads and so much fun!! #mystery #nancydrew #readinggoal #fiction #girldetective

The Cruel Prince | Holly Black
post image
Pickpick

I have yet to finish this book, but I am confident enough to say that you must read it. If you love action, a strong female lead, and not a ton of sappy romance this book is for you. I've always enjoyed Black's writing style and I feel that this novel is very different than her other pieces. I can't wait to see how it ends and what happens in The Wicked King.

I do feel like there could've been some stronger character development.

This is blasphemous to say, but I have too many books on my shelves; books that I've had for years and haven't bothered to read them. So it is my mission this year to - what I like to call - "Read & Remove" the books in my house. #2019 #readinggoal #readersdilemma #buymorebooks #readandremove

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Yes! I did that last year too, read and donate to the next library sale!!! Great #BookGoal 10mo
RebeccaRoo7 I never thought about the library sale. Great idea! Thanks for sharing!! 9mo

One of my students told me this was a really good book. I just can't seem to get into it. Is it worth finishing or am I possibly wasting my time? #dnf #mystery #movie #asimplefavor

I hate the thought of abandoning a book, but #bookschool for the #modernmrsdarcybookclub has me rethinking some things.

Although I should be reading a different book, I have always loved this novel. So, I put aside The Bookshop on the Corner and picked up #TheDarkHeroine for another read, while sipping on a Hot Toddy. Merry Christmas Eve! #christmasreads #romance #vampires #reread #mylitnight

This was the #Modernmrsdarcybookclub pick for the month of October. I really enjoyed this book andit was so, so easy to read. It made me laugh, made me cry. Even though I am several years younger than #Kellycorrigan, unmarried(at the moment), and am childless, this book was so relatable. It's simply beautiful and am better for reading such a piece of literature. #toppick #october #2018 #reflect #tellmemore

RebeccaRoo7 Yes!! It certainly was. 😊 14mo

I did enjoy this book, but I don't believe it is meant to be read in one sitting. Read it when you doubt yourself, your capabilities, or when you feel like someone is testing your boundaries. It is nice to know that someone else is plagued with the same thoughts that I am.

I needed something easy and fun to read, this book was it. I will admit that every event, situation seemed to fit together too well, but that could be just from me reading more domestic fiction and non-fiction recently. If you are looking for a quick, "on-the-verge" YA romance, you should pick this book up. #octoberreads #ya #romance #pickitup #fall

Since day one I have loved these books. Maybe it's just because I have a thing for folklore and stories of the Goblin King. When I was in high school I read "The Hollow Kingdom" Trilogy by Clare B. Dunkle and have read it several times since. My fiancé bought this for me before he left on his deployment. #folklore #thegoblinking #romance #fantasy #bestguyever #novels #sjaejones #wintersong #series

Beartown: A Novel | Fredrik Backman

I'm listening to the audio book right now and am almost happy that I chose this format instead of reading it. This book gives me "The Chocolate War" vibes, but way more intense. . I'm anxious to see how this ends or even if I will be able to finish it. How did anyone else feel about this novel? #beartown #thechocolatewar #entitlement #fredrikbackman #shame #hockey #whatisthis #audiobooks #reading #ilovereading #audiotrip #unbelievable

How long will it take me to read this novel? That is the question I ask myself whenever I pick it up. I don't plan to rush through it since I have plenty of time and (of course) more books to read. I have started it, and that is the first step. #ilikebigbooks #america #redwhiteblue #herewego #morebooks #tomclancy

RebeccaRoo7 Haha, I have yet to finish it. There are so many other books that I've had to read. 😜 I will finish it....maybe just not for a few more, well, months or years. 9mo

This is the stack of books my fiance gave to me to read while he is deployed. So far, I have finished "The Death of Superman" and am now on "Rainbow Six" by Tom Clancy. Even though I can read fast, this novel is almost 900 pgs. I plan to read this in spurts maybe, but I'm not sure the best way to tackle this monster. Any advice? #army #military #bookstack #truelove #deployment #keepingmebusy

A Madness So Discreet | Mindy McGinnis

So much of the time I feel like I'm broken or I have a "glitch". This YA novel continues to restore faith in myself that I am capable of doing many wonderful things. That I must learn to live and appreciate my mind, body, and soul; to not feel like I'm empty or missing something. Sometimes I think certain books call to me just at the time that I need them. Books make me feel more than human beings ever have. #loveyourself #strength #kindness

Boundaries: When To Say Yes, How to Say No | Henry Cloud, John Townsend
post image

My therapist pretty much prescribed this book to me hoping it would help with my boundaries and my codependency issues. Even though I have been reading it on & off, I cannot ignore that much of what Drs. Cloud & Townsend have talked about is quite relatable for me. If you are struggling in your relationships or recovering from an abusive/unhealthy relationship this book is so helpful. #boundaries #relationshipadvice #recovery #healing

It seems I always have this problem when I am reading multiple books at one time. I can't decide which one to read at a certain time!! There are just TOO MANY wonderful books to read!

This morning I'm just choosing between reading:
Dying to Read - Lorena McCourtney
The Selection - Kiera Cass

But for this week:
A Long Walk to Water - Linda Sue Park
Boundaries - Henry Cloud & John Townsend

This book is probably the first book I've read recently that didn't end the way that I needed it to. It broke my heart and gave me despair.

Who else has had to keep the lights on at night while reading this?? I'm halfway through "I'll Be Gone in the Dark" and it is beyond creepy and so well written. You should definitely only keep this as a daytime read. #michellemcnamara #truecrime #ssdgm #nonfiction #catsoflitsy

KUBuckeye While reading this, I had a few nightmares and was getting pretty creeped out at night ... and then they caught him and I drove and walked by his house - nightmares stopped! Thus, I really can‘t even scratch the surface here of what all of the victims have had to endure. #ssdgm 1y
RebeccaRoo7 Yes, exactly!! There were multiple times where I had to put the book down and refocus my thoughts on something else. But even then...I could not. What a weird coincidence (or not) and no, I can't eithe!. He was/is a sick man. 1y

I picked this book up just because of the title and the cover design. I thought that it might be somewhat like A.S. King's "I Crawl Through It" and it is not. Actually, it has more similarities with "Grasshopper Jungle" by Andrew Smith - all those great Science Fiction elements. #sciencefiction #entertainment #love #pterodactyl #comingofage #readit #alancumyn

Sorry for the poor quality, my camera is a little busted. Anyways, I'm not quite sure if I'm enjoying this book or not...however, I am enjoying my latte.
