First book of 2020, and I enjoyed it. Strout has such a way of drawing you into the everyday lives of her characters. I couldn‘t help but feel for Olive and share in her joy and pain throughout the story. #bookly #booklyapp
Finished book one of #24B42020, and it was a powerful read.
Looking forward to a cozy Friday night reading and joining in the #24B42020 readathon!
I‘m all set to have a winter break full of hygge! Cozy slippers, hot beverages, books I‘ve been wanting to read, and a new fictional hygge book 😍 Thank you so much @Dogearedcopy 🎄📚🎄📚
I thought I might have seriously injured my foot, but, thankfully, there‘s no fracture. I am kind of annoyed the doctor said I should ice it and rest. You mean I have to stay in, cozy up, and read the new Margaret Atwood all weekend? Such a bummer.....

I‘m not a fan of fireworks and loud noises, so this is how I do 4th of July....curled up in my closet with earplugs and a great book 😂 Thinking this might be a wonderful spot for a reading nook 🤔 Happy 4th of July to all those celebrating and happy reading to everyone else!!
I set a summer reading challenge for myself...reading a YA book for each day of break. I‘m a couple days behind, but this was a great first pick! A book about fighting censorship and finding one‘s voice.
Thoroughly enjoyed seeing Madeline Miller tonight! Her presentation makes me want to read all the epics. At the very least, I want to revisit The Iliad before diving into The Song of Achilles.
Took way too many naps to make the full #24in48 but I had a blast hanging out and reading with my sister @CaitMobley this weekend! Finished two books and am halfway through the third. I loved seeing everyone‘s posts!
I‘m not going to make 24 hours, but I will read on until midnight 📚📚📚📚 #24in48
The first of many cups of coffee this weekend ☕️ I had every intention of starting the first book for #24in48 last night but fell right asleep, so let‘s try this again. I‘m going with a quick read and one I‘ve been looking forward to!
When my student found out I hadn‘t read this one, she was horrified and excitedly gave me her copy to read over winter break. I‘m so glad she did! This book is a treasure ❤️
A huge thank you and big hug to @Ashley31 for such thoughtful, amazing #LGPOG Secret Santa gifts!! It was the perfect package....three books I‘ve been wanting to read including the new Kate Atkinson 🤗 Ghirardelli hot cocoa ☕️ and the softest fleece bookshelf blanket 😍😍😍 I‘m so touched by your kindness, Ashley 😘 Merry Christmas to all my bookish friends 🎄
I haven‘t wanted to simultaneously praise a book and throw it out the window in a long time 😂 I couldn‘t put it down and think it‘s the most well written psychological thriller I‘ve read in a loooonnng time.....right up until the last sentence 😡 *cue book being thrown out window * I‘m giving it a pick because it stirred up so many strong emotions and pulled me out of a reading slump 👍🏻 If you‘ve read it PLEASE tell me thoughts on the ending!
Okay literary friends and #teachersoflitsy....I‘m looking for a short story that uses flashback that would be appropriate for a middle school audience. I immediately thought of “An Occurence at Owl Creek Bridge,” but I think the content is a bit too dark for my 7th graders. I would love any and all ideas 😘
It been too long since I‘ve posted...I‘ve been in a #bookslump this year. Starting this spooky one for a #readalong while enjoying my pumpkin spice toast and coffee with pumpkin spice creamer 🎃🎃🎃#somuchpumpkin
This is my final time for #24in48 📚📚📚 Even though napping got in the way of making the full 24 hours, I had a blast reading all weekend with my sister @CaitMobley ❤️ Three books finished and two books started.
The epigraph for this book says it all...a cozy little book about home and family. #24in48
If you‘ve not read this lovely little book that has flown #undertheradar, you are missing out! It is described as as “a hilarious and moving story of one girl‘s fight for freedom of expression and a linguistic tour de force sure to delight word lovers everywhere.” If you enjoy books written in letters and/or untraditional formats you will love this one!
I wouldn‘t be comfortable recommending this YA to my middle schoolers due to certain content, but I personally found it gripping and it had a unique story line. A great summer porch read! #summereading2018
I will read anything Clare Mackintosh writes! I finished this last night and woke up thinking about it. She writes the most unexpected plot twists and I‘ve yet to predict one. Hers are the kind of books you go back and reread to figure out just how she did it. Having said that, this one wasn‘t her best, but still a solid psychological thriller. If you read the book please help me out...I have some spoiler-y questions below 👇🏻 #summerreading2018
