reading

This morning I realized i'm currently reading four different books at once, plus I have three that are on hold at the library right now. 
Things are winding down significantly at school. For the first time all year I can leave at 3:30 because i'm done with all my stuff. It's actually pretty glorious. If teaching was like this year round, it would be a lot less painful.
All that said, I have time to read. I have been binging a few TV shows lately, but mostly I read. Here is what i'm reading or is at the library waiting for me...

Mindset: The new Psychology of Success
This is a book that our principal asked us to read and it has really changed my perspective on life, my relationships and how I view work, or any challenge really. It goes in depth about growth and fixed mindsets and how this has impacted many companies and people throughout history. I am actually making my gifted students read it over the summer because I think it's such a valuable lesson.

Book of Mormon Girl
Faith has been something that i've been focusing on lately. I disagree with a few things that the LDS church has done recently, but it's a church I love and cherish at the same time. This is a story about a women's faith journey as a liberal Mormon women. I'm not sure how I feel about it, but I want to be more open minded so i'm reading this book.

Eleanor and Park
I'm only a few chapters into this, but I bought it when I was sick because I had heard so much about it. I just finished another one of Rainbow Rowell's books, so I wanted to keep reading.

A Study in Charlotte
This book is about the female descendants of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson. It's basically like a YA Sherlock novel with amazing female leads and i'm so excited to pick it up from the library. 

Emmy and Oliver
I have had so many people recommend this book to me. I honestly can't piece together exactly what it is about, which is exactly how I like to go into books and movies. If you like Sarah Dessen, you will love this book apparently.

Nineteen Minutes
This is what we are reading for Bon's Book Club this month. It's about a school shooting from multiple perspectives. It is thhhhiiiickkk, so it's going to take me a while to get through. It's a subject that is a little close to home, school shootings are definitely something that frequents my mind, so hopefully I can still enjoy it.

Everything I Never Told You
I'm dying about how long I have to wait for this book. It's about a girl whose body was found and whose parents have to work backwards to figure things out. I love the title of this book, the mere concept of the thing intrigues me.


The Girl on the Train
This is the next book for the book club that I host. It's going to be a movie in October. Basically it's about a girl who sees this couple on the train every day and starts to make a narrative for their life in her head, and then one day the woman disappears. 


Do you see that i've fallen down a rabbit hole? Haha, I do not understand moderation, apparently. What books are you reading right now?
