Hello December, my birthday month. Hoping for some great reads and to start working on my physical therapy and start walking on two legs again by the end of the month.

Still reading for the CYBILs panel and sprinkled in some fun books too. @TheAromaofBooks #bookspin

Hello everyone! I‘ve been a little preoccupied getting knee surgery before the holidays and am stuck in a brace until about right after Christmas. Hoping I adjust quickly to my new one legged life as I can‘t weight bear on my right and after I‘ve rested more can focus on reading physical books again. I‘ve been listening to some audio and playing games or watching Tv and movies.

Hoping to write soon too!

RinaBrahmbhattBarot Hey! I and my swap didn‘t send the package (I think) because I tagged few times to see what I can select as the TBR was too big and I couldn‘t make out which one I shall purchase…but she was busy with surgery so looks like we mutually decided to skip. Thx for organising it :) 9mo

A little look into my small middle school library. I do have more shelves behind the graphic novels which host my nonfiction but otherwise it‘s not too much bigger than a classroom to be honest. I love my environment and my students and honestly even with the loss in my family and falling last week, I made it into work. Some days were hard but my work family and seeing my students makes it all worth it.

My September TBR was sort of easy to make as I didn‘t read about half the books on my August list due to family loss and back to school adjustments. I finally was able to sit and read a bit today and clean which was great and soothing. Getting ready for the turn of the month coming up this week and #bookspin

On my first day with students, our family was hit hard with a sudden loss that will affect us for a long time. I am fortunate to have a great support system and I‘m excited for my second year being a middle school librarian.

What I am sharing is that I made an affirmation door inspired by another librarian, called the Book Wrangler, so I‘m gonna share that since it‘s all I have from my first week at school.

I had a great reading month in July. 20 audiobooks, 16 graphic novels and 6 novels. I also DNF one book due to animal cruelty and experimentation that was just too much.

Currently reading:

Charisma‘s Turn by Monique Couvson and illustrated by Amanda Jones is a graphic novel that follows a high school girl named Charisma who is dealing with a lot from school and home.

Nic Blake and the Remarkables: The Manifestor Prophecy by Angie Thomas and narrated by Joniece Abbott-Pratt is about a girl whose life is turned upside down when she finds out her dad has been lying to her all of her life.

We Deserve Monuments | Jas Hammonds
post image

I read 30 books in June, woot! One for each day basically.

My fave book of the month is easy to pick - We Deserve Monuments by Jas Hammonds @jashammonds is easily the best book I‘ve likely read this year. Such an important story and I was honored to meet the author at ALA this year!

My runner ups were:

The Sun and The Star by Riordan and Oshiro
Fourth Wing by Yarros

I read so many good books but these were the standouts!

LiteraryinLawrence Wow, how did you read so much?? That‘s super cool. 12mo
Bookgoil @LiteraryinLawrence audiobooks typically it took me the whole month to read my one physical but I plan to work on that in July I have a problem sitting still if it‘s not a graphic novel. 12mo

My two favorite audios of the month are big and at the top - I am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter and In the Lives of Puppets.

my fave graphic novel this past month - Tokyo Rose Zero Hour which really dug into some WWII history I was not familiar with and brought to light a story that was so compelling, especially in graphic format.

Hoping to push my reading more this summer!
