I missed August's Currently, so I'm really excited to jump back on the Farley train! :)
Anybody else enjoying a Labor Day on their own? My sweet boy is out peddling wine and I am enjoying a rare day at home on my own. DVR, oh how I've missed you! Law and Order:SVU, Weeds, NY Med... we're catching up today!
And Mr. Adam Levine. Sigh. I love my husband. I do. But that man? (Fans self.) This album is a lot of fun.
Anyone else starting ITBS and COGat this early? I totally forgot to cover up/turn around charts/etc. before I left on Friday. Blaaaaaaaaah. These poor kiddos. They are not ready for 8 days of testing. We've barely gotten 5 minutes of reading stamina down. HA!
I, however, have been a reading FOOL. I'm pretty sure my sweet boy is going to stop being so sweet if I don't stop buying new books. Here are a few of my (non-teaching related) recent faves:
Just a few notes about the titles:
Gone Girl: Super suspenseful, dark and twisted. I could not put it down. This is my "must read" recommendation for all of my friends.
Lone Wolf: The newest Jodi Picoult novel. I love, love, love Jodi Picoult. You should love her too. She creates characters and story lines that make you question where you stand on current issues. I love books that make me reexamine my own outlook on the world.
Come Home:Lisa Scottoline manages to interweave families, mystery and suspense. It's like super-hyped up chick lit. Love it.
Defending Jacob: A district attorney's 14-year-old son is charged with murder and he has to become a defense attorney in order to save his son. Again, a few dark twists and turns along the way... are you sensing a pattern? :)
The Light Between Oceans: After years of trying to start a family, a lighthouse keeper and his wife find a boat washed up on their shore. The man inside the boat is dead, but a newborn baby is alive. I'm only a few chapters into this one, but it's really really good!
Bared to You: If you, um, like the 50 Shades books then you should, um, read this one. Seriously. ;-)
Fantasy football!!! I've always had to play with my sweet boy and a bunch of other guys. I'm so excited that some of my blogger peeps had the bright idea to start a league of our own. The draft is today and I can't wait!
We also have a new Book of the Month at school, One Smile.
Since we are a Leader in Me and 7 Habits school, we dedicate each month to a different habit. One Smile supports Habit 1: Be Proactive. Be on the lookout for some lessons on how I'm bringing this into my classroom!
Go link up! It's fun to peek through everyone's lists. Most importantly... remember the RULE of 3!! :)
