What I'm Reading Wednesday - The Raven Boys, Feeling Good, Black Ants and Buddhists, See Me After Class, and Shiloh

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

I don't know if it's because of spring break, the fact that I'm reading this book in hardcover instead of on my kindle, or the book itself but I'm really struggling to get into this book. Maybe it will fare better this week. 

Feeling Good by David D. Burns

Unfortunately this book puts me to sleep when I read it right before bed (which is my prime reading time) so it's slow going. 

Black Ants and Buddhists by Mary Cowhey

Starting to read this one again! Especially now that I'm taking over more subjects in my student teaching, this book is really helping me develop my outlook as well as pedagogy. 

See Me After Class by Roxanna Elden

This book is pretty much an easy read that helps me vent. As the author put it, it's "hard liquor for the teacher's soul". I don't agree with all of the attitudes she has toward teaching but it makes me feel better about my mistakes as a student teacher. 

Shiloh by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor

This is my current read aloud with my third graders. I remember reading it in elementary school, it's such a sad book. I don't remember the ending though, so I'm excited to read it again! I just hope I don't cry in front of my students.
