I. Love. This. Series. This book is a great addition, and I honestly want to read approximately five hundred more books set in this universe. It‘s so good I can‘t even stand it. 11/10 definitely recommend 👌🏼

It‘s been a while since I participated in a #24b4Monday readathon, so I figured I‘d see what I can do with the long weekend. This book is amazing, and gives me a lot of insight on how the brains of people with autism work. I‘m also submitting this as the book that reminds me of my happy place for #booked2019 because I really and truly love working with the kiddos I work with.❤️

Cinfhen This was an interesting insight into the mind of someone who is usually more closed off. 1mo
rwmg He's great. His later book was very good as well, though both are perhapsnot generalisable. 1mo
MolliesaurusRex @Cinfhen @rwmg it was recommended to me by a coworker (I teach in a school that strictly serves students with autism) and while I know it isn‘t applicable to every one of my students (“Once you know one person with autism, you know one person with autism.”) I feel like it‘s given me a better understanding of some of the things they do. I feel like it should be required reading in my school! 1mo

My boyfriend thinks I‘m extra because I bought a PopSocket for my Kindle. But like, I read one-handed all the time (usually because I have at least one cat laying on my face), & I accidentally drop it all the time (usually on said cat‘s face), so it just makes sense to have a grip. What do you think? #kindlereader #kindlereads #kindle #kindleprobs #layoffmypopsocket #yesmyhairisgreennow #littenquestions

1. I love having a designated space to talk books!
2. I don‘t think there is a single thing I‘m uninterested in.
3. A form of direct messaging would be cool - I‘d like to be able to discuss things further with people but not necessarily through comments.
4. Not as often as I‘d like, but I‘m trying to be more active!
5. Yes, but I never do read-alongs. I always fall behind.
6. Other than messaging, I can‘t think of anything. It‘s already great!!!

I decided to read this because I enjoy the story of Marie Lalurie and wanted to learn more about the facts vs the myth, but I‘m about ⅓ of the way through and not really digging it that much. It‘s readable, but the writing is really clumsy, like a high school research paper. We‘ll see if I can finish it or if I bail...

Guyssssss. My litsyversary was two days ago and it got me thinking of how much more I need to be on here because it‘s been SO LONG.😭 I even missed the Halloween photo challenge which like, hello, Halloween is my favorite, I would‘ve LOVED that. Anyways I gave up on the Crawdads for a while & I‘m moving on to this book for my new in 2019 prompt & I‘m loving it so far! I‘m going to make a conscious effort to be more active on here, too!

TL;DR - Strong National Museum of Play is amazing, and I highly recommend you come to the ROC and visit it no matter how old you are, because you‘re never too old to play. Here‘s a picture from their exhibit One History Place during their Happiest Hour. This chick clearly had too much fun, & so will you.🤣 (4/4) #strongnationalmuseumofplay #visitroc #letmeknowwhenyoudo #litsyplaydateanyone

They also have a butterfly garden that is open year round! It costs extra to go in, but it‘s so cool inside. There are so many species of butterflies flying around. They land on people, and there‘s a section where they have a ton of chrysalises with butterflies hatching (behind glass, of course) and we even got to see one come out of its chrysalis!😍 (3/?)

The genres/settings include the Upside-Down Nonsense House (think Dr. Seuss), Mystery Mansion, Adventure Island, Wizard‘s Workshop, & Fairy Tale Forest (where this selfie was taken after we made crowns, which is an activity that is always out for kiddos). Talk about literal immersion into your favorite books! Literacy is promoted throughout the entire museum, among a bajillion other awesome things kids need to be able to see! (2/?)

This particular photo was taken in their exhibit Reading Adventureland, specifically in the Upside-Down Nonsense House. The exhibit brings to life 5 popular children‘s genres... (1/?)

This was weird. Like, I have no idea what to think of this after reading it. I‘m definitely going to try and watch the show on Netflix and see if I like the story when it‘s told in a different media form.

Like I said last night, so so so cute! It‘s a kid‘s story, so there are some things that are glossed over and not really resolved/dealt with in a realistic way (basically the entire climax), but that doesn‘t take away from how absolutely adorable it is. I‘m using it as my #booked2019 genrebusting prompt because of the combination of text and comic panels throughout the book.😊😊😊

I‘m almost done with this adorable book. I‘m totally loving it. It‘s so cute, and Kate DiCamillo makes Flora such a relatable character. Even William Spiver, who honestly is super weird, is more relatable than people like her parents, who are relatively normal and probably more like us than any of us would like to admit. I‘m thinking I‘ll try & finish it tonight, as it‘s such a quick read, because I have another loan to get to!

I haven‘t been posting on here as much lately, so I‘m going to do a few posts of updates. The first is The Spiderwick Chronicles. I was trying to find an audiobook to listen to while I cleaned last week, and stumbled upon this series. It was one of my favorites as a kid, and Mark Hamill does a tremendous job of bringing them to life. I‘m on book 4 currently, and totally loving it.😍 #audiobooks #audiocleaning #childhoodfavorites

Just finished listening to this one. I typically listen to podcasts on the way to work, but thought I‘d give an audiobook that I haven‘t previously read a try. I spaced out at a lot of different points so I missed a good chunk of dialogue and description and whatnot, but I got the basic gist of the story and the main plot points. I like the movie adaptation from a few years ago better.🤷🏻‍♀️ #booked2019 public domain entry, too

This was very interesting. It was done tastefully, and really captures some of the feeling that follows the suicide of someone (or in the case of this book, 5 someones) that you know. Never does the author try to explain how the parents felt, which honestly was a relief to me. It definitely is something I need to continue to digest, but I was pleasantly surprised in reading this, whether of my reaction or how it was written I don‘t know.

I think I‘ll try this one next. I love the movie, but haven‘t watched it since my grandfather‘s suicide, so I‘m not sure how well I‘m going to do. If I make it, I‘m submitting it for book to movie for #booked2019 - here goes nothing!

monalyisha I‘ve also been worried about how sensitive this one might be or not be. I‘ll be interested in your thoughts. Good luck! (I‘m so sorry to hear about your grandpa. 💕) 6mo
MolliesaurusRex @monalyisha thank you - it‘s been over a year but sometimes it still doesn‘t seem like it happened at all. It‘s a very strange experience. The movie wasn‘t what I would call insensitive - it‘s basically this group of neighborhood boys trying to piece together what happened to this family - but obviously it‘s a trigger for me. I‘ll definitely let you know what I think as I read! 6mo

This one was definitely interesting, but I‘m not totally sure I enjoyed it. I feel like it was all a bunch of teen angst and the only part I related to at my current age is the issue of high school friends growing apart & all of the little things that go along with that. I‘m curious to see the movie, though. #booked2019 #graphicnovel #ontothenextone
