Kimberly at Caffeinated Book Reviewer hosts the weekly Sunday Post link-up, and Deb at ReaderBuzz expanded Sunday Salon from a FB group to a link-up as well.
What I Read
Wintersong, The Astonishing Color of After, and Tosh Hearts Tolstoy. These have all been nominated to be on the 9-12th grade list for our state battle of the books next year. My favorite was Tash Hearts Tolstoy.
What I'm Reading/What's Next
I've started reading Frogkisser! which is on this year's 6-8th grade OBOB list. I'm also looking forward to diving into Leigh Bardugo's first adult novel, Ninth House, and then another bunch of potential future OBOB books.
- I've started knitting again, and am working on a pair of fingerless gloves for myself and a scarf for my sister.
- Saturday I hosted my second "read-in" at school, and it was so fun. I didn't get very many kids, but it's the first day of a week off, so I know some families were leaving town, etc. They read and did crafts and giggled and listened to music. I was especially pleased because I've been frustrated that my OBOB club is 100% white, but this gathering was 100% Latinx. Our school is nearly 50/50, with slightly more Latinx, so I want to see better representation at things I organize.
- Last Monday was Latvian Independence Day, so I told my classes stories about Latvia, which made me happy.
Have a good week, and enjoy the turkey if that's your thing!
