I know you're dying to know what I read this week and what I will read next week. Because I am that interesting. In my make-believe world, I am down-right fascinating.
Speaking of fascinating, I just (like JUST closed the book) finished "Fallen" by Lauren Kate. It completely fascinated me. I picked it up at the school library during a red ribbon guest speaker which was 1) amazingly excellent and 2) I'm getting the credit for finding her. Right now I'm at the top of my game at work. Which is odd since I'm at odds with a close colleague. Apparently, a year ago I talked to another school counselor at another school who told me about this amazing guest speaker, a former Miss U.S.A. finalist, who had the kids captivated. I said I would love to have her come and speak at my school. Someone sent her an email (me?) and she called the head counselor (who doesn't like me right now) in September and told her I wanted her to come for Red Ribbon Week. Am I amazing, or what?
I just wish I remembered who, when, and where this conversation occurred.
Anyhoo, that's why I picked up this book. I was trapped in the librarian's cubby and started being all ADHD, picking up and looking at whatever book I could find. I'll probably skip book #2 since it doesn't tell the reader much. But I'm hoping book #3 is the final installment and will be at least as good as book #2.
If you are still with me after my little story, please whistle or nod you head.
This week I plan to read:
and I might get to (really hope I do):
I'm also waiting books to come and some of them I'm losing hope.
That's it! Read anything you loved?
