One of my goals was to read 20 Unread Audio Books this year. 🎧 📚 Swipe right for a closer look at what I’ve read so far. 👉🏻I love @audible, but I had to stop my subscription this year so I could catch up on all the books I hadn’t read yet. They were starting to overwhelm me. Most of what I’ve read this year, I have really enjoyed! I could listen to @bryancranston narrate anything. (He read his autobiography and The Things They Carried - a reread of one of my favorite forced reads in high school.) Misery and I Am Legend were SO INTENSELY GOOD. The Song of Achilles was beautiful in every way. Little Women was like spending time with an old friend. And Daisy Jones and the Six was so fun! I loved all the narrators and found myself wishing the band was actually real. The only book I didn’t love was The Dutch House. I kept listening because it was narrated by Tom Hanks, but the story was kind of dull. Have you read any of these? What were your thoughts? It’s ok if you disagree with me! #bookstagram #readlikeateacher
Happy Valentine’s Day! Hello, three day weekend! 🤪
Living life on the wild side with not one, but TWO 7-day library loans! Believe it or not, I’ve already finished both. 🤪 I really enjoyed The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware. She can be hit or miss for me as an author, but I enjoyed this one! I was definitely hoping for more with Ninth House based on so many positive recommendations, but it honestly didn’t do much for me. Still need to read both of Josh Malerman’s books! He wrote Bird Box, which Netflix adapted into a movie... and I LOVED that book! Hopefully these don’t disappoint! Do you make time to read for pleasure during the school year? For me, it’s one of my most important forms of self-care!
Whelp, I suppose this IEP won’t write itself. 😭 Anyone else choosing to tackle some work stuff today?
Looking for ideas for 2020! 📚 My favorite overall so far (bc it’s not Dec 31st yet, right?!) was Circe by Madeline Miller. And my favorite guilty pleasure books were the first three Outlander books I read. Definitely want to finish that series! How about you?

What are you currently reading? I’m trying to knock out Where the Crawdads Sing today (because it’s due back at the library tomorrow). I’m not sure how I feel about it yet. I was hoping I would love it more because it has so many positive reviews. Have you read any of these?! What did you think? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #currentlyreading #readlikeateacher #bookstagram #readmorebooks #bookshelf #bookstagrammer #books #read #reading #currentread #bookish #igreads #bookstack #teacherreads
And the winner for Best Teacher Costume goes to... 😂🤣 SWIPE RIGHT 👉🏻 to see it in action. Bonus costume at the end because it’s too good to leave out! Did YOU dress up this year?
So this happened yesterday. And I freaking love it! The words are from the song my husband and I danced to at our wedding. I also love the permanent reminder that no matter how bleak the metaphorical winters are in our lives, the hope for rebirth and renewal is always there just beneath the frozen earth. #gemcitytattooclub #tomwaits
Feeling cute. Might get a tattoo later. IDK.
