Most Anticipated YA Reads of 2021 (September-December)

Things are going well here. I did a bunch of shopping in the last week to get ready to go back to school. Our house had some leaks from Hurricane Irma and our basement flooded a tiny bit. The roads were crazy though! Broken down cars and flood water everywhere! We’re supposed to have another flash flood this evening from Hurricane Larry, but I’m hoping it won’t be as bad. I had my first week of student teaching this week! It’s been really fun getting to know all the 6th graders at my school. I’m excited to teach and learn from them.

Book Review: Under the Whispering Door

I was lucky enough to get an advanced reader copy (ARC) of TJ Klune’s book Under the Whispering Door from NetGalley, so thank you to them! I finished this book in early July, but in typical me fashion, I haven’t gotten around to reviewing it until now. This book will be released on September 21st, so be sure to preorder it.

I had a wifi-free week last week, visiting Cape Cod with my family. It was nice to get away – one of my first vacations since Covid started. Ate a lot of seafood, went to the beach, read, and relaxed. We came back early on Saturday because of the impending storm on the East Coast. Wasn’t too crazy here though, just two days of rain. Been slowly getting back into things – went to school on Monday and Tuesday to get settled in, but won’t need to go back for student teaching for another week. Today, I’m finally getting around to my laundry from vacation…and catching up on emails. How’s everyone else’s summer been?

It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? #IMWAYR

It’s definitely been a minute since I updated! I thought I’d have more free time come summer, and while that’s true, I underestimated how much I would just want to rest. I worked at my school summer camp last month, which was a blast, but also exhausting. My old car from 2003 also finally gave up, so I was on the hunt to lease something. I finally decided on a white Volkswagen Tiguan and I’ve been really enjoying it so far. Other than that, it’s been a relatively uneventful summer, hanging out with my friends, working on creative outlets, making and jarring jam, and catching up on my Goodreads challenge. How are all of you? What have you been up to this summer?

Top Ten Tuesday: Books On My Summer 2021 TBR

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. This week’s topic is “Books On My Summer 2021 TBR”.

There are so many good books coming out this summer! My focus hasn’t been the best lately, so I’m not sure how much reading I’ll get through. But here are a couple of books I’m looking forward to…

Rainbow Reads: Pride Month Picks

It’s officially pride month and it’s time to do a roundup of my pride picks that release this year (2021). I love that there’s such a diversity of representation in Young Adult LGBTQIA+ books. Every year, it seems to get better, with more and more books with gay, lesbian, bi, trans, queer, intersexual and asexual characters. I even read a Middle Grade LGBT book (Thank A Lot, Universe) this year! This is in no way a comprehensive list, but here are some books I’ve read or plan to read in 2021!
