The Writing Circle | Corinne Demas
Pickpick

I really enjoyed the book. I enjoy reading about writers and, for some odd reason, psychopath women. The ending felt a little too convenient, but overall, I loved this book for a rainy Saturday read.

The kids are playing on the porch, and we‘re enjoying the peonies we just picked while I read a couple more chapters. I‘m really enjoying _The Writing Circle_ so far.

I like the parallelism, rhyme, and imagery here. #shakespearereadalong

This is the first book I‘ve read from Goethe. I never worried about reading translations before, but now that I‘m reading in Spanish, I‘m starting to realize how much the translations change from the original work. However, I did really enjoy this book. I was really upset about the baby‘s death and how no one seemed sad about it. I haven‘t read any literary criticism about the novel, but I‘m guessing he modeled it after a Shakespearean tragedy.

“Nay, faith let me not play a woman; I have a beard coming.” #shakespearereadalong This whole section about the part assigning was funny.

Elements of Style | William Strunk, E B White
Pickpick

I‘ve read this book several times, and I‘m always blown away by how short and thorough it is. The writing is beautiful, and the student and teacher partnership between the authors is touching.

What makes a book good? It‘s really a mystery. I‘m trying to pick books for a new class I‘m teaching in the fall, and this classic book is just so good. Trying to decide if I think my students will enjoy it. Anyone had good luck with teaching with this one? #teachersoflitsy

Moving the Mountain | Charlotte Perkins Gilman
Pickpick

The only work I had read by Gilman was her short story “The Yellow Wallpaper.” I really enjoyed this feminist utopia. I don‘t think it would work, but it is a fun idea. My one complaint is the ending felt rushed. @SerialReader

This is the first book I‘ve read in Spanish. I started it in November, but I‘ve taken my time and only read about three pages at a time. I thought the stories had good cliffhangers, and I was actually curious about what was going to happen next. I felt as if it were a good way to learn new vocabulary since he repeated words throughout the stories. #spanish #learningasecondlanguage

House of Mirth | Edith Wharton
Mehso-so

It took forever for me to be interested in this book. I love Wharton‘s writing style, but I just felt sorry for Lilly. And I totally called the ending. It reminded me of of the ending of _The Awakening_.
