Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you are all well rested and ready to face the week–especially those of you plunging into finals. You can do it! (If you need a break from finals, you may find this Pinterest board highly relatable.)
Last week’s quote came from Treasures of the Snow, by Patricia St. John. Liberty Bluebell, Elisabeth, and Savannah Peran all guessed it correctly. Great job, girls!
This week’s quote comes from a Newberry Medal book that’s filled with adventures and misadventures.
How far I’ve come! I’m the same girl and yet not the same. I wonder if it’s always like that? Folks keep growing from one person into another all their lives, and life is just a lot of everyday adventures. Well, whatever life is, I like it.
What Has My Attention
- Equipping Minds: I spent half of my weekend at the annual MassHOPE homeschool conference. It was great! Carol Brown of Equipping Minds was one of the speakers, and her sessions were fascinating. She’s all about using games to increase people’s cognitive cores in order to make academics easier to process.
- Abaddon’s Eve: Rachel Starr Thomson is one of my favorite speculative authors. She’s trying to hit 15 Amazon reviews for her book, Abaddon’s Eve. As a result, it’s discounted to $0.99 for a few days. I already reviewed it, so I thought I’d reach out to you all and invite you to give it a try.
- Samara’s Peril: Most of my free time this week went to reading my advanced reader’s copy of this book. A preliminary review is up on Goodreads, and I can’t wait to share more with you!
- Box of Sunshine: This care package idea is simply adorable. Now I need to decide who to send one to.
If you want more curated links, the top three links in last week’s post are some of the best blog posts I’ve read in a while.
