TSS - This & That


The Life

 Things have been truly hectic in this part of the blogosphere.  End of the year wrap ups means kids are DONE learning (thru conditioning of the our state test being the end-all-be-all) and ready to play.  Which means, there's more discipline issues which lead to very exhausted teachers.  Throw in a crunched track season and various social engagements, I have been EXHAUSTED.  

Plus, as a Gemini, I admit I fall into extremes.  Right about now I'm in the social butterfly swing of the pendulum.  Reading has been down.  Blogging has been affected.  Blah blah blah.

No apologies here though.  Because amidst my exhaustion I'm having fun with friends and my students.  I can't help it.  

I'll probably not be around for the next week.  I do have two reviews scheduled for this week but that's about it.

The Blog
 
Since I missed TSS last Sunday, here are my reviews from the past two weeks:
  • Sing You Home by Jodi Picoult - such a fantastic JP novel.  Highly recommend.
  • Wings by Aprilynne Pike - kinda disappointed in this one, folks.
  • Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher - ummm, where is his next book? Love it.
  • Bliss by Lauren Myracle - surprised and impressed; check it out.
  • Lost Time by Susan Schmid - 'nother disappointment; read for kids book club.


The Books

This week, I finished

Nothing?! Life, man. Sometimes it gets in the way.

This up and coming week, I plan on reading

  • School's Out Forever by James Patterson (Book Two in the Maximum Ride series)
  • Great Expectations by Charles Dickens (I would like to finish this today or tomorrow!)
  • Lonesome Dove by Larry McCurthy (for Ready When You Are, CB's Hop Along, Git Along challenge.  Did I mess that up?!)

  1. It's good to be a social butterfly from time to time. We cannot live on the computer alone. Or at least we shouldn't. ;P

  2. This time of year is inevitable hectic for anyone involved in education in any way! I'm glad you've been at least having fun amidst the exhaustion, though :)
