Baby Teeth by Zoje Stage
blurb

Looking for some good horror books for the summer! Preferably adult (middle school teacher here; need a break from kid books!) and not super long (like Stephen King) so I can read more than one on summer break. Any suggestions?

Had to pause on this one to get several other books with library deadlines read. Happy to be back in this mysterious world!

Izzy wants to know what I‘m reading. “Any puppies in the story, Mama?” “Not so far, little girl.”

Can‘t wait to start this one! Had to limit myself to 1 book with this paycheck (because I‘d spend the whole thing on books if I didn‘t) & this is the one I chose! #blackprivilege #charlamagnethagod

Just got these books 4 days ago and I‘m already halfway through the stack! Picked up a couple books from the Uglies series and gonna order the rest of the series for one of the books in the pic. Maybe they‘ll get me through April!

iamcourtneyb How‘d you like it? I‘m ordering books 3 & 4 today from B&N. I absolutely love realistic apocalyptic, natural disaster, dystopian Sci-fi novels. So far I‘m hooked on this series! 1y

“And the story goes she never forgave him. She looked out the window her whole life, the way so many women sit their sadness on an elbow. I wonder if she made the best with what she got or was she sorry because she couldn't be all the things she wanted to be. Esperanza. I have inherited her name, but I don't want to inherit her place by the window.”

Not a good book. Hated the 1st one. Don‘t remember why I started the second. Just trying to finish b4 the e-book is due tomorrow. Probably won‘t meet that goal. I hate an unfinished book—even a bad one. Ready for a good horror book next. Wasted 2 weeks on this one.

Intrigued...very intrigued...where is this boat going? What‘s the deal with this tiny crew? Why has no one heard from the main character though she‘s sent several messages to all her close contacts? And the burglary at the beginning of the novel? What‘s the connection? #thewomanincabin10

Enjoying the rest of my Sunday with a Peppermint Mocha & a scary e-book. Weird reading this and trying not to imagine Will Smith as Neville lol.

My favorite app! Just finished “Murder on the Orient Express”. My 3rd Agatha Christie mystery. Not a big fan. I don‘t like how she expects us to solve a mystery when she leaves out so much important information. Like the murderer being someone who was never mentioned or having a bunch of background information that is the key to the mystery that the reader couldn‘t have known. So now, looking for my next read. Any suggestions? #SCRIBD

ErinC What app is this?! 2y
iamcourtneyb Scribd. There‘s a free trial, then its $9/mo or $84/yr. I think you get 6 credits a month and each book I‘ve read so far costs 1 Credit. Great book/audiobook/magazine/newspaper selection! 2y

But there must be something he wants, from me. To want is to have a weakness. It's this weakness, whatever it is, that entices me. It's like a small crack in a wall, before now impenetrable. If I press my eye to it, this weakness of his, I may be able to see my way clear.

I want to know what he wants.

Just got these beauties in the mail. Teaching my 8th graders with #1 & #3 in the fall. #2 was recommended to help me learn to teach the kiddies to love reading as much as I do. Can't wait to dive in! Anyone read any of these?

staci.reads The Book Whisperer is fantastic! 1y
iamcourtneyb I agree! Brought a whole new light to the way I help my students find books they love! 1y
