I tell everyone I am @colleenhoover’s biggest fan and I am. I will never stop fangirling when I see her. Or flip the fuck out when I get to eat lunch with her and she directs conversation with me. Or the fact that she remembers my name.
Pairs well with: a bagged lunch
It made me: marathon binge teen movies
Twins Ellery and Ezra travel to picturesque Echo Ridge for an extended stay with their grandmother. The town, also known as “Murderland”, has a storied past of unsolved crimes, one being the twin’s aunt and most recently a high school homecoming queen. As ominous threats resurface, with Ellery among the targets, herself, her brother and their two new friends (one with family ties to a previous suspect) work to uncover the mysteries of both the town they inhabit and their own families’ hidden secrets...I quickly flew through this solid teen mystery and enjoyed reading through the lens of Ellery, a true crime buff. At one point, I briefly began to feel restless and convinced I had figured out the murderer as clues appeared to confirm my suspicions but spoiler- I was wrong, leaving me surprised and chilled by the final words.

Welcome to Wishful, California, where the mountain air is fresh, the people are small-town friendly, and the wide-open spaces will inspire you to find the life and love you’ve been dreaming of…
For accountant Katie Kramer, being the good girl hasn’t added up to happiness. So she’s heading to a quirky mountain town for a new job with an expedition company, hoping to break some rules and make some memories. Enter Cameron Wilder, who’s happy to help Katie do all that and much more. But what happens when love enters the equation?
Dr. Emma Sinclair has swapped a hectic New York City ER for summer in the Sierra Nevadas. In between treating bee stings and stomach flu, she’s clashing with Stone Wilder. The co-owner of Wilder Adventures and Expeditions thinks the good doctor needs to loosen up. But when their connection turns intimate, can he convince her she belongs in this town—and in his life?
The untamed landscape around Wishful is the perfect place for Harley Stephens to study a rare coyote. She isn’t counting on stubborn, sexy travel guide T.J. Wilder tagging along. Since high school, they’ve been circling each other, fending off a raw attraction. And maybe it’s time for Harley to discover just how good it can feel to get a little wilder . . .
Hello! Let’s see if we have anything in common.
👋🏼 My name is Cassie. I’m 26.
👩🏼🏫 I teach middle school Spanish.
🦡 I’m a Hufflepuff.
💜 Purple is my favorite color.
📚 I made this account to connect with other readers and to prioritize reading in my own life.
📖 Last year I read maybe 2 books for fun. Since making this account, I’ve read 21 books so far in 2019.
🇨🇷 I love languages and traveling. I lived in Costa Rica and would like to go to Peru next.
🐶 I have two dogs and a guinea pig.
☕️ Coffee is not an optional part of my day. I prefer it iced even in winter.
👩🏼🎓 I also have a library media specialist license. Working in a school library would be a great job for me, although I also wouldn’t want to stop teaching Spanish. It’s so much fun. 🏂 Winter is not my favorite season, but activities like snowboarding make it more enjoyable for me.
🍁 Fall is the best time of the year. The colors, the flavors and the weather are all amazing. I love wearing scarves with boots.
☀️ I’m not even going to pretend like I don’t love having summer breaks. It’s the best. It gives me time to do things I love and I feel so refreshed when the new school year starts.
🏊🏼♀️ I used to be a competitive swimmer and it has always been my favorite sport.
🦙I just love animals. My favorites are ones are sloths, llamas, manatees and capybaras.
🎧 My favorite kind of music is rock (classic rock, alternative rock). I also love listening to music in both English and Spanish.
👩🏼💻 I have a teacher blog through @miss.maestra although I haven’t updated it in a couple months. Hopefully this summer I’ll have more time to share ideas on there!

I loved the jacket treatment, but the book was a bit of a letdown. The meat of the story in What Red Was is trauma, and a very real depiction of how it's possible for a young woman to suffer in silence rather than telling her truth. What surrounds the visceral description of trauma and PTSD, though, is a meandering tale of posh life in London that doesn't seem to go anywhere. If the story was a photograph, I feel like the subject of the photo was right, but the composition and angle were off. Also, as an aside: can we stop comparing books to The Secret History just because they're set in a UK University? #currentlyreading

I started In Cold Blood a few days ago. I’m taking this book in bit by bit in my workday. It’s such a detail-rich story, so this one requires alert attention. I’m supplementing by reading through the sections I didn’t fully absorb. I’ve made it a rule to not listen to an audiobook without having a physical copy in my possession.
So far, I’m enjoying it, like any good book. It’s a new reading experience to know that the Clutters are not story book characters, but victims. I’m familiar with true crime TV shows, Youtube series, films and podcasts, but reading it like a novel really screws with your perspective on what’s authenticity and what is make believe. When reading fiction, I tend to empathize with both the protagonists and antagonists. To do so here with these “villains” — real life murderers — might be crossing a boundary. It’d be interesting to understand why Capote felt compelled to befriend Perry during his interviews for the creation of this book...
I took this shot this morning on a dim cloud-filled morning. I woke up at six, but I didn’t really climb out of the nest until I could discern the outlines of my furniture by the early morning light. I’d like to be a morning person. I appreciate the idea of completing much of the day’s tasks in the first part of the day but as I pertain to the night owl lifestyle, carpe noctem is more my vibe. I usually stay up till past midnight, writing, researching, editing, listening to music, surfing Youtube for inspiration and general entertainment, caressing my plants, taking breaks from sitting at my desk by doing child’s pose and Russian twists, photographing my cat and the lover boy while they sleep — the usual introverted things. But I do love starting my day with a book, flipping pages in bed or playing from my phone on the go.
Some students think that reading is only to be done by kids when teachers assign homework. To highlight that reading is something that EVERYONE does and to create a climate where learning is celebrated we posted signs outside the teacher's doors that say, "I am currently reading . . . " We laminated these and the teacher's wrote their current reads in dry erase marker. It was fun to wander and look at all the fascinating titles. #marchisreadingmonth#reading#lovetoread#pto#bcstroy#currentlyreading#teachers#teacherscanlearntoo

Does anyone else seem to get lucky and win books a lot? I got this from @shelf.awareness!
The other day I was sitting at the bar of a Brooklyn coffee shop, nervously sipping my latte while I prepared for the launch of #awomanisnoman (which was scheduled to start moments later at @greenlightbklyn), when I looked across the room to find @ffmirza, author of #APlaceForUs , typing into her laptop. I recognized her immediately, and the next thing I knew I had stood up, walked over to her table, tapped on her shoulder, and said, “I’m sorry to bother you, but I just wanted to say that I loved your novel and you’re even more beautiful in person.” She replied, “Thank you so much. Can I give you a hug?” Aww!💕 After a small conversation, I told her I was an author too and that my event was in a few minutes at the bookstore next door. She said she was sorry she couldn’t make it, but she would love to read the book. We said goodbye and I headed next door to @greenlightbklyn to prepare for the event. A few moments later, @ffmirza walked into the bookstore, bought #awomanisnoman , and asked me to sign it. Long story short: you know when you like an author based on her work but then you meet her and instantly fall in love with her character even more? That’s what happened with me. Forever a fan of @ffmirza. ✨

Does this even need a review? 🙃 You all told me it starts getting good from the third book on. Naturally everyone was right 😂 — I totally forgot how good Prisoner of Azkaban is. It’s so interesting to be rereading the series several years later and to now notice the evolution of J. K. Rowling’s writing — it improves with every book! I’m currently 200 pages into Goblet of Fire, which was always one of my favorites. I’m curious to see if that’ll still hold true once I finish it, but so far Prisoner of Azbakan is my top favorite!
It’s been a long time since I’ve done split colors but I’ve never done pink and blue before. 😄
I’ll admit it’s not my favorite even though it looks okay. I wish I’d done lighter shades of pink and blue though. 😂

To get away from what feels like the never ending anxiety attack I decided to spend most of my morning working from a loud and crowded coffee shop. I did a lot of deep breathing exercises and had a really helpful phone call with my therapist — but I think eating one giant slice of double chocolate brownie, a few chocolate chip cookies and a lot of coffee also helped me get out of my head. I've spent so many mornings here that the barista knows both my drink and pastry orders and I don't know how to feel about that. Escaping to a coffee shop whenever I feel anxious or depressed is not a solution so I need to deal with whatever is triggering these feelings. Where do you escape to when you need a break? And how do you deal with bad days?
It's starting to feel like Spring here so I've been taking advantage of it by walking everywhere. I'm hoping getting a lot of sun and fresh air will clear my head. I'm not looking forward to the heatwaves of summer that are sure to hit us hard but I do miss spending a day reading at the park, having picnics on the waterfront, and most of all simply walking everywhere. Is it starting to feel like the last days of Winter where you are? Are you looking forward to warmer weather?
