Happy first day of spring! I really do think spring is my favorite season because there is just nothing like watching the earth come alive again. Being out in nature is so good for the soul. I love reading about the beauty of this season as well as the parallels to life. What do you like to read the most in the spring?
From the March 20th entry of the Tennyson Year Book:
“She sees the Best that glimmers
Thro’ the worst,
She feels the sun is hid but for a night,
She spies the summer thro’ the winter bud.”

Our reading struggles. They are ongoing....or are they? FINALLY!!! She loves reading now. She loves reading ingredients on her food, road signs and her teachers comments on her homework. She FINALLY enjoys reading!!! ....and it shows! Level 19 reader!!! #laurenrae#laurengoestograde2#readingisfun#soproud
I was hoping to read a cute piece of chick-lit with some interesting doggy counterparts but I got a hot-mess of stereotypes, uninteresting characters that lacked real diversity, and a plot that went nowhere.
Very disappointed as I had heard lots of praise for this one.
You read that right! If at first you don't succeed try and try again! This applies to books as well. There are so many genres to choose from. If you can't wrap your head around the fictional drama why not try a light-hearted autobiography or a dark historical thriller! What genre have you been pulled to lately? 🧐
thanks so much @new_vessel_press for gifting me this advance copy of the lovely
SLEEPLESS NIGHT by margriet de moor (fiction) a widow desperate to find solace and the answer to her husband’s haunting story + though spare, this gem requires careful reflection on the things left unsaid = 👍🏻
“The fever of sleeplessness drives people to do the strangest things.”
get your hands on this beauty may 7th!
March 20: Cat Wishes is one of my favorite picture books 😻 It’s simple, yet so beautiful and emotionally powerful. A stray cat is granted 3 wishes when he spares a snake’s life. He doesn’t believe in wishes, but thinks differently when they stay to come true. I always interpret the story as- an independent cat is used to being on his own, so he doesn’t get his hopes up for his life to change for the better. He says he doesn’t believe in wishes, yet he still tries to use them and is overjoyed when a little girl embraces him. I may be reading intro it too much, but to me, this story embodies vulnerability and hope. ❤️
Love using @stepintosecondgrade#rootedinreading with this targeted small group! The book selections are great, the cutest posters, notebook activities and worksheets and most importantly- literally jam packed with comprehension, vocabulary and grammar skills!
I don't have brothers! How did I qualify for a son?
This book has helped encourage me to bond with my son in ways I didn't know before- snuggles, Legos, video games, etc.
I recommend it for any Mama of a boy. It's such an awesome book and a great reference for future years.
Sneaky silent e was a blast to learn. 💫 These post-it notes evolved from basic words to group sentences to individual student sentences by the end of the week. We are loving interactive charts this year! #iteachfirst#anchorcharts#phonics

Books have always played a major part of my life. I remember back in elementary school, I would come home literally every other day with another book I found at the library 🤓 I’d be SO excited to open up that front page, start reading, & dive into a new, fantastical world that allowed me to escape my own for just a little bit. ✨ The simple, yet incredible, power of books to help a little gay boy from North Carolina feel loved, understood, and like he wasn’t alone in the universe is just so profound to me. Books were my friends & family when I thought I wouldn’t be accepted anywhere else 🌈💛
That’s why today, I want to announce a new lil initiative I’m starting up with y’all... #EveryonesBookClub !!! ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜 Every month, I’m going to be featuring a book by a historically marginalized author on here, read them with y’all, & have some discussions over Stories, Lives, blog posts, & however else!! This is my way to not only bring more exposure to marginalized authors (which is SO needed today 🗣), but to share stories that bring new perspectives to your bookshelf 📚
The first book we’re going to be reading is The Love and Lies of Rukhsana Ali by @sabina_writer and I’m telling y’all, I’ve already started reading it and it’s gonna be such a gorgeous, heart-wrenchingly beautiful story about a girl who can’t come out to her conservative Muslim parents, keeping a part of her identity (+ her girlfriend 😔👭) hidden from sight. She’s eventually outed to her mother who forces her to fly to Bangladesh to stay with family, where her entire reality is flipped upside down.
I’m SO excited to see where this lil initiative takes us!!! 🙌🏻 So if you want to read this book of the month - just order it via my Stories and use #EveryonesBookClub in your posts/stories 💖✨ Keep your 👁’s & 👂’s out for updates from me!
(FYI - I work at Bloomsbury.) Hello all! Today I’m featuring two of my most recent reads, Toffee by Sarah Crossan and Everything I Know About Love by Dolly Alderton. .
I was very excited to get my proof copy of Toffee through work - I love Sarah’s books and I’ve been really hyped to get my hands on her new one. This is a verse novel that follows a teenage girl who’s run away from a violent home, and finds a friend in a very confused old lady. It’s a highly emotional story with beautiful writing, and I highly recommend reading it when it comes out on the 2nd of May. Sarah’s books are poetry for people who don’t like poetry. Seriously, try it! .
And then there’s Dolly’s book, Everything I Know About Love, which I’ve wanted to read ever since it came out in hardback a year ago. I love a good memoir and this one was exactly what I was hoping for. It’s a hilarious retelling of the author’s twenties, which she spent living and working in London - just like I am, but with a lot more partying involved. Balanced out with some more sobering, emotional moments and recollections of afternoons spent with her therapist, this book was everything that I hoped it would be. It’s definitely one to read, especially if you’re a millennial. .
Which books are high up on your to-read list right now? Do let me know if you’ve read either of these! ☺️ .
