Reviews to some of the books read above, plus:
Participated in the Once Upon a Reading Challenge–didn’t meet my goal, but it was a good experience. I think I learned some reading challenges may not be for me, especially the short focused ones.
I am currently working on the Verse Challenge. And read the following novel in verse in July : Love and Leftovers
I am also currently working on the 14 Books, 4 Months, 1 Challenge:
July 1: 20 points, July 31: 60 points
I am a bit worried I may not make this challenge :-(. But, I am not giving up yet!
Intriguing Search Terms Pointing to My Blog:
“push knife in back quote john grisham book”
I must admit, I went and used this search term myself, to see if it would pull anything up. I couldn’t find a quote, but I remember the book and know it probably had something to do with Cowboy…
I ❤ using sayings like “Holy Buckets Batman” when I am speaking or writing. I use them in my classroom quite frequently and my students are constantly giving me new ideas.
“summary of chapter 1 in nevermore by william hjortsberg”
Sadly, one of the books I have read I wished I hadn’t. The novels premise was promising–Houdini, Poe, magic, psi abilities, and murder. Unfortunately, it did not deliver a great read for me.
What I Learned this month:
Just keep moving ahead. There is no outline for tomorrow, there is no forged path. Every day is a chance to move forward or backward and I have chosen it’s all forward from here.
As for blogging, the school year seemed to keep me more on track, however, I am reading far more in summer!
