Friday Love

It has been so long since there's been a {Friday Love} post, or really any post. May has never been my favorite month of the school year. I'm hoping this gets me back on track.


Julia on Jeopardy. We all know I love Jeopardy. Julia has been the returning champion for 19 nights. The best part is she seems so normal. She is stealing Ken Jennings spot in my heart this week.


Fresh Herbs. My garden is growing quickly. It has been so nice to go clip some basil or cilantro dinner this week. Basil really just tastes like summer!


This Contest. I entered this week. I love DALS, and I'm really excited about the potential of this!


The Book Thief. I just started reading The Book Thief this week. I love the way the book is written with Death as the narrator. It's hard to stop reading. It's getting me excited for summer reading. Any suggestions? I want to start making my list. I need something happy and light after this one.

  1. For summer reading:

    -The Lathe of Heaven by Ursula Le Guin - possibly one of the most mind boggling and existential books I've ever read. It's really short, too. It's not a 'light' book, so maybe read something else before it.

    -Haroun & the Sea of Stories by Salman Rushdie - One of my all time favorite books. It's loaded with figurative language, is a hell of a lot of fun, and is one of the most clever stories told. I did it as a read aloud for my 5th graders for 3 years and they absolutely loved it.
