    No blog so here goes:

    After looking rough my list of books read so far this year, none screams at me like others have in years past (like Cutting for Stone did, or Unbroken, etc). I read some good stuff, but nothing that was earth shattering. So I’ll choose a few books that I FINALLY went back and finished (or rather, restarted and read) because I’d either started but wasn’t in the mood for so set them down, OR had read half of with my son a few years ago but we never finished it and I really wanted to read the second half. So I’m most thankful for these books I finally read in their entireties AND I ended up liking all three of them A LOT: Mockingjay; Death Comes to Pemberley; and The Swiss Famiky Robinson (unabridged, and the one I half-read with my son). A bonus? That they no longer linger on my “reading” lists on Goodreads. It’s finally all cleaned up and truly on,y what I’m actually reading and/or listening to. Yay!

    I’m not “officially” participating (but I am reading and finished three books so far this weekend). I hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful and that you are kicking ass on your own reading this weekend!!

    Can’t get to the blog right now but wanted to enter. One of the books I am most thankful this year is Maplecroft by Cherie Priest. Kiddie Borden made a great protagonist and it was such an interesting twist on the tale. Can’t recommend it enough.

    I think the book I am most grateful for this year is Summer on the Short Bus by Bethany Crandell. I read it in May and loved it so much I read it with my summer school students. I think it is a really important book about bullying, stereotypes, judging others, and how we treat others. It was an absolute emotional roller coaster. It was a phenomenal debut and a book that I loved and that really truly made an impact on my students.
