Got some pickups from the library ❣️ I decided that I should try and pair fast paced books with the nonfiction to help me work through both simultaneously. I'll see how it goes 😅 I think it's going to be tough for me to put down the quick reads and be more deliberate about getting through the nonfiction. Wish me luck! 😂

Teacher | Sylvia Ashton-Warner
Pickpick

A little bit old and outdated, but it does have some brilliant ideas about how to step away from standardized education and more toward a naturalistic learning process. Children will learn many of the academic skills that are required to be successful in traditional primary school without doing it explicitly. They practice vocabulary, pro-social behavior, storytelling, and so forth through play. Ashton-Warner really taught me to embrace the chaos!

In the Spirit of the Studio: Learning from the Atelier of Reggio Emilia, Second Edition | Lynn Hill, Lella Gandini, Louise Cadwell, Charles Schwall
Pickpick

I read this over the semester to help me think about how I was stimulating children's creativity through art and expression, and I thought this gave me a big hand in NOT being so hard on myself. I had more limited resources but made the best out of what I had. I ended up using a lot of recycled and natural materials in the classroom! The children had plenty of time to really dig into their works, and they loved it when they could take it home. A++

Her Deadly Secrets | Laura Griffin
Mehso-so

I have got to say...I was a bit disappointed by the end. The book focused SO heavily on the romance and the attraction that it was hard to enjoy it as a murder mystery/thriller. Every other line was how much the girl felt insecure and remembered how he touched her that one night and he was all trying to protect her and so on. Yeesh! But I guess I should have looked up the author before reading and not just taken the synopsis for truth. :x

Sharp Objects: A Novel | Gillian Flynn

Mehso-so

I listened to this all of yesterday while I cleaned up my whole room (part of why I haven't been on Litsy has been lack of motivation which has been a tough thing I've been dealing with for over a couple of months). I have to say, while it was interesting, it wasn't as intense as I thought it was going to be. I also felt like the reveal was rushed right at the end without letting the reader do a little bit more digging. All in all, though, solid.

I can't rave enough about this book. I am so glad that I found it and that I was able to share this with some elementary-age children. When I asked them what the story meant, they definitely understood that autonomy and being able to do what you want is important. They also recognized that it's not helpful to be mean - people who want to follow their dreams should be able to follow their dreams. A lovely read for the young ones!

Wow. Wow. Wow. I loved this 3-person perspective-taking novel on the women who were behind the downfall of Gilead. I will say, Atwood clearly catered to the people who have been watching the HULU series. Aunt Lydia finally making amends, June's daughter Hannah (Agnes in the novel) being courageous as ever, and Baby Nicole trying way too hard to fit in with Garth and stand out against the Pearls/Aunts.

My little reading kit. I decided that I wanted to start using an actual dictionary so I had less of a reason to get on my phone while reading (which then distracts me with notifications and I stop reading altogether).

I realize that I forgot to post this one! To be quite honest, I loved this graphic novel. From the aesthetic and feel of the book to the story of loss, confidence, and triumph, I can't express in words just how much I loved it. I would even venture to say this might be on book that I would be willing to re-read again and again.

I thought that this was a great read as millennial who is dealing with many similar problems (worry about student debt, probably spending way too much on things I don't need, etc). I empathized with the author often, especially when she recounted struggling with her mental health and addiction while trying to figure out what she loved and who she was. I especially found the list at the end helpful as I move toward spending less. Recommend!

I admit, I am such a happy human with sappy YA. This book was basically perfect. I loved the cast of characters - they felt real and honest - and I frankly didn't know who Blue was until he was revealed. I couldn't believe that I didn't pick up on the major hints the author sprinkled throughout (just like Simon didn't)! I'm so glad for the representation, the dialogue about our assumptions, and the adorable romance (of course). So much recommend.

JoyBlue I *did* guess Blue's identity; but, it didn't diminish from my love of this book. 😉 ❤💛💚💙💜 4mo

I'm already loving this book and feeling a slight affirmation as a queer person. Why do we have such a compulsion to gender the individuals in front of us?

I often find that people assume me to be a "ma'am" or a "she" when sometimes I really just feel like a 'they' ? even this shrugging icon is distinctly 'female'!

Question for folks who use NetGalley! I am a casual reader (and by no means make money from reading books) and am curious whether NG is fine for casual readers or if it's just meant for folks who read professionally/are educators/librarians/authors, etc. The sign-up page makes me feel like it's meant more for people who can reach a wide audience (people not me haha). Thoughts? I'd ask, but the site required you have an acct to reach them. Thanks!

Megabooks I want to know this as well. I don‘t have a blog anymore. Am I still eligible? 4mo
ReadingOver50 I am more of a casual reader and I use NetGalley. Initially I requested too many books and it became a bit stressful to keep up with them all. Now I read 1 or 2 per month from NetGalley. Don‘t worry if you get rejected for some books. Just make sure you review the ones you get. 4mo
LogiKitty @Megabooks @ReadingOver50 thank you so much for this response! When you review all the books you receive, does that get you more books in the future? Also, is there a certain amount of time you have to read the books by? 4mo
ReadingOver50 @LogiKitty the more reviews you post the better your chances of getting new books. They keep track of how many you request vs how many you review. And since most are ARCs they want the review posted by publication date. 4mo
LogiKitty @ReadingOver50 thank you so much! 4mo

It wasn't half bad, and I hadn't expected the twist when it came, but it certainly wasn't as “thriller“ as I had expected. I found Lo to not be a very enjoyable/likeable character. There was SUCH a heavy focus on her diagnosis and the believablility of her story because of her mental health condition that it drove me nuts. I feel like the author kind of used it as a crutch. And overall, she was a bit too nosy for my taste. Overall, decent, though.

jb72 Yeah I wasn‘t thrilled with this book either. I felt like the MC could‘ve and should‘ve known better about many things in the book (like taking meds and drinking). 4mo
LogiKitty @jb72 agreed! Which is funny because she rationalizes it and tries to make a good argument for why it's fine for her (since she's done it for so long) 4mo

All the Rage | Courtney Summers

This rounds out my readings of all the C. Summers books. Just as the others did, this one had me stopping, crying, and feeling a lot of hurt. #MeToo shouldn't have to be a movement, but this book just exemplifies why it is and how even the ones who are supposed to protect us don't believe the stories of horrific acts of sexual violence on female bodies. How it breaks people and makes them do anything to feel normal again in their skin.

LogiKitty [Quote: “I think wildly that I could reach through and grab her wrist, like I could stop her and take her away, because no one else is doing it. Because no one else did it.

I put my hand to the screen, covering hers. We‘re wearing the same color nail polish.“]

This passage reminds me of an article I read during a training... About how we demonize people who are struggling for the vices they have when maybe that's the only current comfort they have. It's a good read to get a different perspective.
