Autumn's Kiss | Bella Thorne
post image

This young scholar is head over heels with this author. Young love has a lasting effect on middle schoolers and it‘s interesting to see their relationships unfold.

Crooked Kingdom | Leigh Bardugo
post image

This scholar loves a series. She said Mrs. B, RUN not walk and get book 1. The passion in which she described this series has my heart swollen from the sheer joy of listening to her describe what the series is about and watching a few non-readers ask questions.

Caraval 3. Finale | Stephanie Garber
post image

Finally! This scholar has the best book recommendations and today I was able to take a photo of her with the latest book recommendation. I officially feel old as I am now labeled…”The Book Lady”.

Ms. Han,
I said I was going to read you last year and the year before that but time and other books just kept getting in the way but now…I‘ve been challenged to finish it by next week! Scholar: I bet you won‘t. Me: Watch and learn young grass hopper!

I think every teacher in this building deserves free books and more but my spirit animal deserves the world! She was telling me about this amazing series and turns out I added it to my TBR in 2017.

Lore Olympus: Volume Two | Rachel Smythe

There‘s something about a fresh new copy, spine not cracked that gives me ALL the feels! I am too excited to dig into this and share my thoughts with a scholar who is now about to graduate from high school!! I‘m honored to know her and even more honored that she still values my opinion.

julieclair I love everything about this post! 💝 2w

I‘d Rather Be Reading…A Love Song for Ricki Wilde has me feeling as if I‘m watching a movie waiting for the love connection happen. This slow burn has me curious just enough to push me through and has me wondering where these characters will land.

Do Not Disturb: A Novel | Freida McFadden
post image

Sooo….this scholar was reading as I was passing by and I immediately stopped to see what she was reading. Y‘all!! Of course I was happy that 1. She was reading 2. I‘m reading a book by this same author and 3. She and I immediately started sharing our thoughts about the author and her writing style. I love when I get to connect with scholars about books or anything surrounding books.

What in world!! I‘m hooked and this came highly recommended. I was a little apprehensive as scary, thriller and horror is not my jam but Mrs. McFadden is doing her thing!

My morning read is turning out to be a good one! “I repeat Mama‘s words in my head and maintain a self-assured silence in the face of his inspection, understanding this part of the test. And no matter what he thinks, he must believe I am a confident, competent white woman.” This almost took me out. Shoutout to my sonshine for the cool bookmark. He was all of 6 when this was gifted. He‘s 24 now!

This ride is wild!!! I‘ve read the comments and listened to the stories on how this book sits with you but nothing really prepares you for a book like this…I‘m scared, my blood pressure is high and I‘ve already speculated the worst. The beef folks have with CoHo is unjustified in my opinion as you have to be one deranged individual to write a story such as this!! #cohobooks #veritycolleenhoover #veritybook #verityissogood #mochagirlsreadpicks

Mrs. Bailey has left the building!! I‘m exhausted and the next two weeks will be spent sleeping, reading, and sipping tea. I will finally get to tie up loose ends as a few books have gone untouched as well as binge watch a few shows. The biggest flex will be going to the bathroom whenever I want versus two times a day. 😩

Sundays are for restoration, relaxation and reading. There‘s a kindle paperwhite craze and of course I almost traded my seasoned baby for a new one. I backed out on the 11th hour of prime day and decided that new doesn‘t mean better, even though there are some cool cases that will not fit my 6th generation. She has a new slate (thanks mom) and I can‘t wait to decorate her.

I knew Mr. Cosby wouldn‘t disappoint but after the first four chapters I‘m beyond invested, I‘m stunned in a beautiful way. This may very well be his best one for me and to read my hometown being mentioned on more than one occasion has me geeked. Thank you being shouted to Resist Booksellers for having this on their shelves and for their grand opening being awesome!! Another great outing for Book Pearls!

AmyG I can‘t wait to read this one. It‘s getting great reviews. 10mo

Kindred | Octavia Butler

The night of my last day of school has me starting this beauty. I read this many moons ago so when the graphic novel came out I just had to have it. I am definitely intrigued with time travel but only if I can choose the when and the where. The turmoil the main character experienced was one I won‘t forget and reading it definitely took me on a roller coaster ride.

SamAnne Loved this one. 10mo
