The Stranger | Harlan Coben
post image

I ran out of audible credits already 🤷‍♀️ so I had to go with a freebie. This is what I came up with. I‘ve never read Harlan Coben but I know others who have. My thoughts so far: 6 chapters in, the main character chick apparently fakes a pregnancy and a miscarriage. Husband falls for the whole thing soup to nuts and now, two years later, a stranger tips him off. He confronts her and now the crazy wife is missing.

5feet.of.fury I liked this one! 2mo

I have a group of students who love this series! Now I‘m helping them walk through the origami instructions that are included in the books. 😀 Such a good series for reluctant readers.

Addison_Reads I read this series with my nephew several years ago. They are all such fun reads. We did all the origami as well, although I wasn't very good at it. 2mo
Elizabeth2 My youngest son devoured these when he was younger, along with the Jedi Academy books. He always had a book on his hand in those days. Not so much anymore at 15. 2mo

Tattooedteacher @BarbaraBB Yes! The picture book is dubbed as the companion book for the middle grade novel. 2mo

Super cute quick read aloud. Of course I had to. Rhythmic and rhyming. Third graders love it.

I can‘t say I loved this book (mostly bc I did love Cerulean Sea), but I was intrigued by it. Liked the characters, though their development could have occurred in a shorter book. It was more like a stroll through the personal reflection of Wallace, who has died. Even though it‘s fantasy, the ending didn‘t match with the entire story. While it‘s handled respectfully, there are issues of suicide, death, depression, murder, illness & grief.

I don‘t typically read memoirs but #readingafrica2022 introduced me to this one. This was one fantastic memoir! Like, I would read/listen again. The fact that Trevor Noah himself read the audio made it even better. It‘s funny, sad, and frankly, unbelievable. Highly recommend.

I won‘t say too much as this was my choice for #LMPBC, but I will say that it‘s worth a read. There were some inconsistencies. I felt like it was more of a middle grade read with the exception of a single steamy scene. Curious what my group members think once they read it.

So I started this audio last night. It‘s included with an audible membership, so I figured why not. It‘s a modern version of Alice in Wonderland. The MC great great great grandmother was the Alice who “inspired” Lewis Carroll. Now generations later the family tree is suffering. It‘s is the first book of a trilogy. #impulseread

Twainy 🎃 I had fun reading about tea. I still feel I know nothing about it. 😆 It just occurred to me that I might have been asking the wrong question. I should have asked what‘s the most common tea not what is the best. I think I started a feud between 2 coworkers with that question 😆 I had fun! I‘m not sure what I was searching for when Sticker pens came up 😂 I hope you have a Happy Halloween! 🤗 7mo

Technically, if I have to choose I prefer witches. I really prefer witches and vampires, which is why the tagged book is a witch favorite of mine. Funny story: when my Language Arts Supervisor started in my district, we had a discussion about books and he recommended the tagged book. Didn‘t think I‘d like it, but figured I had to give it a go bc, you know, supervisor. I figured he‘d ask what I thought. I did and he did. 😀 🧙
