I can’t believe the month of July is almost over! I have to go back to work on August 6th, so that means my SUMMER is almost over. How did THAT happen? I’m not ready to go back at all. I still have so much to do to get ready for my students! Friday I went to a local Teacher Supply Store and spent far too much money on things for my classroom. Now I just need the custodians to finish cleaning my classroom so I can actually get in there to start prepping.
I really didn’t pick up that many new books in the past two weeks, which is good because I still have plenty to read. I have almost cleared out my Library Pile, though, so that’s exciting! I just have one book left to read (which I just picked up this week), and one other to finish. Success!
Library Picks/Received for Review:
- All Our Pretty Songs by Sarah McCarry (from St. Martin’s for review)
- Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler
- Starling (Secrets of the Eternal Rose #3) by Fiona Paul (via giveaway from Paper Lantern Lit)
- Shadows of Glass (Ashes #2) by Kassy Tayler (from St. Martin’s for review)
Thank you to St. Martin’s and Paper Lantern Lit for the ARC/finished copies! Twenty Boy Summer was recommended to me by Molli at Once Upon A Prologue after I asked her which Sarah Ockler book I should read first. I really hope I like it, because I’ve heard lots of great things about her.
- Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge (Edelweiss)
- Uninvited by Sophie Jordan (Edelweiss)
- Panic by Lauren Oliver (Edelweiss)
- Persephone’s Orchard by Molly Ringle (e-book)
- Her Dark Curiosity (Madman’s Daughter #2) by Megan Shepherd (Edelweiss)
Thank you SO much to HarperTeen and its imprints! I am stupidly excited to read Her Dark Curiosity in particular, because I can’t wait to see how Juliet’s story continues.
I also picked up Season 10 of Law & Order: Criminal Intent from Amazon. I was a huge fan of this series until they started splitting the episodes between the two teams of detectives. So when I heard that the final season was going to feature a reunited Goren and Eames, I eagerly watched each of the episodes, and then waited extremely impatiently for the DVD release. Goren and Eames will forever be my favorite set of L&O detectives, although Benson and Stabler are a close second.
What did you get this week? Please link me! I love looking at everyone’s hauls.
