My classroom is not a quiet, orderly place.
Students are constantly moving, thinking, talking, reading and writing.

This year I haven't spent enough time with books.  Yes, I'm reading picture books to my class every day (it's the BEST part of our day), but I haven't done much reading for myself.

Before I tackled shoveling the 5 inches of snow that fell today (UGGGHHH), I spent a good amount of time on Goodreads, trying to find my next read.  My favorite genre is young adult/teen fiction.  Give me a juicy boy-meets-girl story any day and I'm one happy camper.  (I'm a hopeless romantic.)

Thanks to spring break, I already devoured Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins.  I'm pretty sure I've read this book before, but that didn't matter -- it was great.  I was excited to learn that there are three more books in this series (hooray!).

If you have any teen or young adult reads that I need to binge read this week, please leave them in the comments!  I have read most of John Green's and Sarah Dessen's books, the Hunger Games and Divergent triologies. 

On to my next book!  


  1. No matter which book you choose, you will enjoy it - just because it's for you. Enjoy

  2. I'm just assuming you've read all of Rainbow Rowell - and if not, do!! Lucky, lucky you to have so much time to read!

  3. Having time to read a good book is the best treat of all! Enjoy your reading and your spring break.

  4. I have Andrew Smith's books on my list. I have never read any of his but so much has been in the media I think I need to. Enjoy your reading time - I know how sacred it is.

  5. I have a whole stack here but no extra time. One day I will get that time to just sit and read and no one to interrupt a full day of binge reading ... one day. Enjoy your one day today, tomorrow and the next!

  6. The best part of reading is getting away to someplace else! Enjoy your "time away"!
