Playing Catch-Up

Leave a comment

Whew, it’s been quite a week! I just started classwork for a Reading Endorsement through my school district so I can finally do what I was born to do– be a reading teacher. As a result, I’ve read hundreds of pages this week… of textbooks… booo!

Today, I shall play catch-up on the blog and do the memes I missed in additon to giving an update of what I’m reading. You can expect a review or two on Sunday!

So, let’s go.

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

This Monday I was in the middle of “The Night Circus” by Erin Morganstern. Shockingly enough, I really wasn’t thrilled with this book. But, more to come in my review on Sunday… {ooh, anticipation!}

Top Ten Tuesday!

This week’s list is the Top Ten Characters I Would Crush On If I Were Also a Fictional Character. Um, I don’t need to be a fictional character to crush on these “people” but let’s run with it.

1. Ronald Weasley: Ron’s always been my go-to guy… funny, goofy, not super aware of how good looking he is, and definitely kind-hearted.

2. Peeta Mellark: He’s a baker and good at decorating cakes. I mean, DUH.

3. Finnick Odair: Can I use “DUH” again as a reason? No? Okay, fine. Finnick is a typical sexy “bad boy” with a heartwrenching back story. LOVE IT. LET ME FIX YOU.

4.  Gilbert Blythe: Anne of Green Gables is one lucky girl. Gilbert is the childhood sweetheart type that I’ve had a crush on since my mom read me the first book when I was in elementary school.

5. Cas Lowood (Anna Dressed in Blood): Cas is a ghost hunter. Pretty cool. He’s funny, sarcastic, snarky, and pretty much my husband IRL.

6. Matthew de Clairmont (A Discovery of Witches): Matthew and I go back and forth. He is that high school boyfriend that you have issues with (“let me do my own thing, Matt!”) but that you can’t help but love. Plus, he’s a vampire. Whoops- spoilers!

… I can’t believe it but that’s all I’ve got, folks. I’m pretty pick about my men and these are the top 6 that made the {current} cut.

Still with me, dear reader? Okay, good. I’d do a Booking Through Thursday post but didn’t like the topic for the week so Imma skip it.

What I Finished This Week: The Night Circus by Erin Morganstern

What I’m Currently Reading: Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore

I think I’ll end it here for now. Like I said, look for a review on Sunday.

And, I’d be a terrible person if I didn’t share: the top 1,000 NOOK books are 50% right now. It’s Friday, you just got paid, right? I’m an economics teacher and I’m here to impart some wisdom — always pay yourself first. That means, pay yourself in books. GO GO GO!
