June Wrap-Up

Check out my reading wrap-up for the month of June!

May Wrap-Up

I’m definitely feeling a little burned out as we head into June, but I’m ready to finish the school year strong! Something that really helped me get through the last month was all of the great books that I managed to read. Check out my latest blog post to learn more about the books I managed to read in May and my reading/blogging reflections moving forward!

Top 10 Tuesday: Books with Nature on the Cover

Welcome to Top 10 Tuesday! This is a weekly challenge hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, and this week’s challenge is about books with nature on the cover!

This was such a fun prompt! At first, I was trying to think of books with flowers or greenery on the cover. But then I realized that nature could mean so many different things! I had so much fun scrolling through my “Read” shelf on Goodreads looking for beautiful depictions of nature. So, here are my top 10 in no particular order!

Top 10 Tuesday: Most Recent Reads

Welcome to Top 10 Tuesday! This is a weekly challenge hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, and this week’s challenge is about my most recent reads!

I’ve been a little behind on my blogging lately, but I’ve still been managing to read in my (minimal) spare time! Thank goodness for being able to listen to audiobooks during my commute to work. Here are the 10 books I’ve read most recently!

April Wrap-Up

As May begins, I’m taking time to reflect on my reading and blogging during the month of April. I blogged less and read more, but I learned a lot and am excited to make some changes moving forward! Read my blog post to learn more!

March Wrap-Up

Happy April everyone!

Did March feel really long to anyone else?

I’m experiencing some big changes in my job, and I think the stress just felt never-ending this month. But oh well! It’s a new month full of new opportunities and new books! Change is always scary but I’m hopeful it’ll lead to some positive things.

Unfortunately March wasn’t my greatest month of reading. My stress led to more TV and videogame time than usual, and there were even two books I DNF (did not finish), which literally never do. I hate giving up on a book before finishing it, but I realized that I deserve to read books I enjoy, and it’s not worth it to spend time reading something that I dread (or end up not reading at all because I dread it that much).

I think part of the reason I wasn’t super thrilled with my March picks was that I chose to focus on middle grade books this month. I took many books home from my classroom to read during quarantine, and I want to be able to read and return them to my classroom before the end of the school year. While I love middle grade books, I tend to get a little restless when I read too many in a row.

I’m excited for my April reads though! I’m planning on reading the next book in the Uglies series (which comes out in less than a week) and I’m also hoping to read The Glass Castle. Other than that, I plan on just reading whatever I’m in the mood for!

Without further ado, here is my wrap-up of all the books I read in March:

Top 5 Saturday: Books with Fire on the Cover

Welcome to Top 5 Saturday! This is a weekly challenge hosted by Devouring Books, and this week’s challenge focuses on books with fire on the cover.

I struggled again with this one! Maybe it’s because I can’t tell from just the spines, and I typically don’t like to take books off my shelves unless I intend to read them? Or maybe I just haven’t read many books with fiery covers! However, I did manage to scrape together a list of five books with some fire on the cover. So, in no particular order, here they are!
