Summer Shelfie List

I was not able to write on Days 2-3 of
We were out of town with family.

I was so glad to be able to write this post though.

Reading is one of my favorite things to do - EVER.
However, when the summer comes along,
I am very guilty of doing nothing but reading.
I always have a great "to read" list which usually grows
as the summer goes along.
Here are the books I really wanted to read this summer.

My oldest child has to read Gathering Blue for her high school honors English
class this summer.  I have never read it (and, sadly, she is not a big reader), so I thought 
I would read it with her.  She started today - I have not.

A few summers ago, I read Kiera Cass's series, The Selection
and fell in love.
My husband got this one for me.  
It was so different from any of The Selection books, but it was

Speaking of The Selection....

I am so sad that this series has ended with this book - The Crown.
I have LOVED this series.
I describe it to people as Hunger Games meets The Bachelor.
OH SO good!!
I kind of saw the ending coming, but loved each moment of it anyways!
I will be rereading this series again!

This book was one a friend had recommended.
I bought it.
It sat on my shelf for - forever.
I picked it up, finally, and read it in a day!
Now, I am ready to read the next book in the series,

AND go to the Biltmore.

I do try to make myself a better teacher over the summer as well.
I have been looking/reading this book, The Reading Strategies Book.

I can't wait to be able to implement some of the strategies in it.
I bought this book in order to read this summer since it is the companion to
The Reading Strategies Book.
The day it came in was the day I found out I was moving to second grade, so....

I went home and bought this one.
I guess I need to get busy reading it since school begins soon!
I just can't bring myself to read it yet!

I don't know about you and your school, but 
our school system is making a big shift to writing.
I have been blessed to be part of a system wide book club this summer using 

It has had some great ideas and wonderful discussions have stemmed from it.
I think the best thing I like is having talks with teachers from 2nd grade-6th grade.
We really do learn from each other!

As you can see, I do LOVE to read!
What is on your to read list this summer?

  1. I'm also reading The Reading Strategies Book (once I pick it up from the library that is!). I'm glad to hear there are companion books to it!
