Two Writing Teachers
I read picture books and graphic novels to find the "next great book" that I can recommend to my intervention students and classroom teachers.
I read middle grade novels because there's nothing more satisfying than sitting down with an engaging book and being able to finish it across a couple of days.
I really love to read young adult fiction because I will forever remember the crazy fun of my high school brain: school fun, crushes, drama, and dreams of growing up.
I skim and scan children's nonfiction because I'm curious about our world. I'm more likely to read about a science topic compared to history.
Rarely I'll read adult nonfiction or fiction. I'd rather read kid- or teen-centric text. There's enough grown-up worries and drama in the world that I hear about via social media and the newspaper. I use reading as an escape.
I use Goodreads to track my reading, when I finished a book, and what books I want to read. I struggle to leave reviews because I don't want to give too many details away. I also end up sounding like the book blurb. I hope to get better at writing reviews.
