Stacking the Shelves is a weekly feature hosted by Tyngas Reviews. This meme allows us to share the books we've recently added to our shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks! *Clicking the link of a book's title will take you to Goodreads.
Hello, again. So, I only have one more day of student teaching. One more day! This semester absolutely flew by! I leave for NYC on Wednesday with some of my students to go see 4 Broadway shows (Peter and Starcatcher, Big Fish, Kinky Boots, and one with a foreign name I can never remember). We also get to go the MET--which I am beyond excited for--and other touristy things like that. Never in my wildest dreams did I think my student teaching would end on such an amazing note.
I can't get too far ahead of myself, though. I still have one more paper to crank out and still have to put together my Student Teaching Portfolio that I have to present to my department on Tuesday. So I do have a long weekend ahead of me (although with that rainbow at the end, plus, you know, getting my masters in a week I know better than to complain about 1 more long weekend).
On the book and blog front, I posted a review for the book Ink is Thicker Than Water on Thursday. It is by the same author as The Reese Malcolm List (which I loved). Ink is also definitely worth reading although I do have to admit I don't have the same love for it. I snagged a couple of great books this week. I did already read one and am hoping to post a review on Monday, but school work has to come first, of course.
Hope you are all having a great weekend!
Roomies by Sara Zarr and Tara Altebrando
I've already read this. I enjoyed it, but it wasn't as fun as I was expecting. This sounded like total fluff, and while it wasn't super serious or anything, it was deeper than I was expecting.
Control by Lydia King
After her father dies, a teen's sister is kidnapped by people who believe her DNA holds a powerful secret.
What I bought
The Robber Bride by Margaret Atwood
This may be my favorite book of all time. It's awesome and amazing and mind-blowing. I have this is in hardcover and mass market, but found it for $2 at HPB in trade pb which is my preferred format. How could I pass that up?
Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
I've read this book about a girl who is relieving the day she dies over and over, but I didn't own a copy. Again, $2.
What I snagged from the library
Meant to be by Lauren Morill
I've heard good things about this book about a girl who finds love on a class trip to London. It looks cute.
Welcome Caller, This is Chloe by Shelley Coriell
I really liked Goodbye, Rebel Blue, so I decided to check out another one from the author. About a girl who joins the school radio station.
The List by Siobhan Vivian
I actually read this one last year with my teen group, but I really liked it and have been thinking about it lately, so I decided to give it a second look.
So that's it for me this week. I'm pretty excited about what I added to my shelves. What did you add to your shelves? Link me up!
