I just realized that I totally spazzed and never did one of these posts for July. Oops? Nonetheless, it’s time to get back on track, so here is my Monthly Recap for August!
BOOKS READ IN AUGUST:
This Shattered World (Starbound #2) by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner
Between the Spark and the Burn (Between #2) by April Genevieve Tucholke
A Spark Unseen (Dark Unwinding #2) by Sharon Cameron
This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales
CURRENTLY READING/LISTENING TO:
OTHER NEWS AND/OR POSTS OF INTEREST:
For Top Ten Tuesday, I posted 10 Fairytale Retellings I Need to Read and Ten Characters I Just Didn’t Click With – I missed a week due to a mini-hiatus right after I started back to work, and then just flaking out and forgetting to compile a list, so there were only two TTTs last month. I also started a new Mid-Week Musings feature over the summer, and shared Post #5 (wherein I talked about the last book I read that I truly loved).
ANTICIPATING IN SEPTEMBER:
Other Things I’m Anticipating: Honestly what I’m most anticipating right now is the three-day weekend! The start of the school year has been incredibly busy and chaotic and stressful, because I wound up with 28 students in my class, which is about 8 too many. Thankfully the district heard my (and my co-teacher’s) silent pleas for help and agreed to let us open up a third section of 1st grade in our building. So on Tuesday I will go from 28 students to 18 students, which is much more manageable. I’m going to miss the kiddos I’m losing to the new teacher, but in the end it will be so much better for all involved.
Welcome, September! ♥
