2016 to-read-wish-list

Published January 10, 2016 by neverwearmatchingsox

With the new year, comes new books.  Some I have been anxiously awaiting (Marissa Meyer I’m talking to you:-) and others I am just finding out about.  Each year on Goodreads I set a goal and in 2015 I almost didn’t make it.  The reason?  OBOB.  I read 12 of the 16 on the list.  That is where most of my summer went.  This year I am going to have to find a new balance and make sure I beat my goal with no worries.  Here are just a few on my list for 2016:

Love spending time on Goodreads~!

Published November 21, 2014 by neverwearmatchingsox

So I don’t always have time to spend looking at my recommendations on Goodreads.  It is something that I need to dedicate time to as more often than not I get some goodies from the site.  My storytime shelf is looking a little sparse so here are the books I am hopeful will take up a temporary existence…..

7870217  Why wouldn’t you love a dancing brontosaurus??

9326273  Just a fun looking book!

~~Book Fair~~

Published September 30, 2014 by neverwearmatchingsox

It’s that time of year again….the dreaded, I mean lovely, book fair.  The kids at school look forward to this every year all year long…as soon as it ends I will get the “When is book fair” question about 100 times.  I love being able to shop from book fair and working it gives me an idea about what the kids are excited for.  Here is my first round of picture book purchases:

My ever growing “to read list”–some of which are now “read”

Published December 13, 2013 by neverwearmatchingsox

These titles have strictly come from Goodreads as recommendations.  I have the picture books on hold and am organizing my thoughts as to which order the others will be read.

Malcolm at Midnight  Replica (Replica, #1)    Replica may be number 1 on my list after I finish Scars by Cheryl RainfieldEverybody Sees the Ants The Naturals  Why We Took the Car

Red Wagon  a fun story that I can use at storytime.

The Great Fuzz Frenzy A story about friendship and fairness that was ok.  Don’t use it at storytime.

 

Max’s Words

max's wordsCheck out this book on Goodreads: Max’s Words http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/74170.Max_s_Words. 

This was on a “word play” list that I found after I read Dear Deer.  Goodreads is a great place to find recommendations.  I encourage kids at my school to join as I feel it is safer than Facebook and the people on Goodreads are on there because of their love of books.  If you haven’t joined yet, you should consider it.
