What I Read
These were all read either for choosing next year's middle grade OBOB titles (Oregon Battle of the Books) or for round 2 judging for Cybils for YA fiction. As such, they were all good. One was my first "all the stars" book of 2021, but I'll tell you which one later. :)
I've started reading my final two Cybils books. I'm listening to Furia on Overdrive and just started Sia Martinez and the Moonlight Beginning of Everything. They both seem good so far, but there are some AMAZING books on the list already so I'll have to see what I think.
I also have a bunch of OBOB books to keep reading this month, and picked up several at the library the other day, with more coming soon. I am kind of looking forward next month when both of these duties are done and I can read whatever I want. I've gotta say, for all that I've read some terrific middle grade books for OBOB, I hope I can shift to the high school group next year.
- My sister and I spent about four hours this afternoon/evening sitting by a fire in my backyard, bundled up in blankets. We started with tea and moved on to wine, and it was wonderful.
- My family got an Echo Dot for Christmas, and my favorite thing to do with it this week is to ask it every day, "Alexa, who's the president?" It makes me happy every time she tells me.
- All my book orders came in at once, and I processed about 35 new books for my classroom. I get to share them with my students next week, and I hope they'll be excited!
Have a good week!
