Signed up for a murder mystery quilt along! Each month I‘ll get a square and a chapter of the mystery! Combines my loves of quilting AND reading. I think this is going to be a lot of fun to quilt and read along to!
I love the bookmark this month!
Over a month ago my cats saw a cat through an open window and then proceeded to get in a bad fight with each other. They‘ve just started being okay being around each other again. We spent a good chunk of today hanging out. I‘m so happy! It‘s been so stressful having to keep them separated.
I saw this in the Halloween discount bin for $6 (from $30!) and had to have it for my shelves. Is it weird to have a Halloween decoration up all year? Haha
Of course I would get over my reading slump as soon as the school year starts. Finished 3 books in a little over a week after struggling to finish pretty much any books. This one was so good. I‘m anxiously awaiting book 2!
Honestly, same, hahaha!
Man, this podcast is cathartic after being the only person in my book club who just really hated Ready Player Two. This podcast is like Mystery Science Theater/Rifftrax for bad books. After this one I may read along with Midnight Sun (I love Twilight but also know it‘s garbage, lol).
We start our school year earlier than most other schools and our days are a bit longer, so I‘m usually off a bit before other teachers. I have two weeks, TWO, before summer camp starts. I‘m almost through the first and while I haven‘t done a lot (and still worked a bit) I‘m making sure to take time for myself. I feel a little guilty, but after this crazy school year I know I need it at the same time!

The amount of references is making me feel like I‘m listening to a Wikipedia article. This would be a DNF if it wasn‘t for book club, and I LOVED the first book. The references are way less organic than in the first book. They don‘t add to the story much in my opinion, just go to show how much pop culture knowledge Cline has. Every time the plot meanders into trivia facts a part of me wants to scream.
Does it bother anyone else when they change the covers for the newest book and then your old covers don‘t match anymore? Like, these are nice covers but I‘m not rebuying the series and now my set is mismatched.
My area got a once in a lifetime winter storm. While it‘s nothing compared to places that typically get snow, we don‘t really have the infrastructure. Over a million without power, including me (the house is 53 and dropping inside!). School has been cancelled the next two days. I guess I‘ll get some reading done!
Phew, not enjoying this one at all. Reading it for book club and I got stuck at the beginning. My audiobook hold came in just in time! While I‘m so frustrated at so many things in the book, I am loving Wheaton‘s narration. I‘ve gotten this far in two days. Amazing what a difference a good narrator can make!
I let my seniors vote this year and they unanimously chose this over Macbeth. Now, I love Macbeth, but I was also think after such a rough year that students may want something lighter. They have been loving their aquatic science class and I think this will be a good connection to that. I‘ve never read it (other teachers at school have used it) so I‘ve got some speed reading to do!
Check out these vintage bookmarks I got at the library when these movies were coming out. I wanted them to last, so I LAMINATED THEM. Since the date on the back says 2001 and it‘s 2021 I think it worked...
It‘s my book club‘s choice so I‘m starting this instead of another book. I‘ve struggled finishing picks from my book club (or any books, actually, this year), but by golly, I‘m finishing this one!
