What I’m Reading [46]

What a tiring week! I really do love teaching research and it’s important, but this is always where I start to flag. Most students are working independently at this point so the students we’re working with are the ones who are lazy or struggling and it’s just super draining work. They’ll be better off in the end though. I’m just glad I’m saving my weekends for fun things like putting together my new bookshelves and getting caught up on blogging. I actually have the whole week’s posts scheduled! That’s huge! Also, look at these gorgeous shelves!

New Books


Jefferson’s Daughters
Not sure if I’m actually going to be in the mood for this any time soon. I might be able to start it this month and read throughout the whole month. It just depends on how many times I get to renew it.

No Justice
I’m glad I got this one so quickly. I’ll definitely make some time one weekend or evening to read it or at least take a look at it and see if I can buy it for my library.

Escape from Aleppo
If I can take it, I would love to read something about Syria. My past tries at this topic haven’t worked out because the stories ended up being so dark (which I know sounds ridiculous since people are actually LIVING this stuff).

A Tyranny of Petticoats
I’ve wanted to read this for a while so I finally checked it out!

The cover drew me to this one. I saw it in the middle school library relatively recently so I decided to get it from the library and read it.

Very Very Very Dreadful
Not sure if I’ll actually read this one or thumb through. I think I’d like to buy it for the library.

What I Read

Bingo Love
So cute! I’ll be writing a quick pick about it in a couple of weeks.

What I’m Reading


Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda
I just love this book and all the movie excitement and marketing made me want to read it again so I decided to go ahead and start.

Flying Lessons and Other Stories
I started this because it was due at the library soon, but I ended up having a renewal so I might not read it super fast. It’s been pretty great so far, though.

Comics for Choice
Informative and infuriating, I can already tell this is going to be an important comic.

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck
So far this is in a similar vein to Sarah Knight’s The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F**k. It has a few differences, so we’ll see. Not sure if I’ll finish it yet.

What’s Next


A Few Red Drops
I need a new nonfiction and this one probably needs to get back to the library soon, so it’s up next.

From Twinkle, With Love
This is expiring soon, even though it comes out in May. I have to go ahead and read it so hopefully I won’t get too far behind with other books.
