The new books on my shelves and my week in a nutshell.
Life and Blog
Life: Sorry for the radio silence, I’ve been slammed and exhausted from the first two weeks of school. The school year is off to a good start. I have a great bunch of students and am settling into the ole routine.
What I’m reading: I’m finishing up Gone for Good, which I’m enjoying and recently snagged I Speak Boy.
What I’m watching: I’m on the last season of Elementary, which I’m a bit sad about. It’s mostly on as background noise, but it’s been great background noise. I’ll seriously appreciate that there is zero romance between Holmes and Watson.
New books: Taking a couple weeks off means the books have piled up. I’m on my phone once again so will not be adding links.. So without further ado, I hope you’re all having fabulous weekends!

I was so excited about this one and started it a couple months back. Despite reviews that said “keep reading when the cat starts narrating” it is exactly where it lost me lol. I might give it another shot.
