June Reading Recap

How has your June been?
I've gotten a lot read this month, but not too much written. I feel like I'm a little behind in my reviews, but part of that is I'm deciding to not work a review so that I can read more.  I'm currently okay with this set up.  I'll take a few days out of the month to go on a writing frenzy and get as many drafts out as possible and then just need to go back and edit closer to publication time.  This is working well.

Other Posts and Highlights

Favorite Links
So most of my links that I bookmarked have nothing to do with reading...just one!  But it's summer and I tend to be a bit less focused in my online wanderings. 

We all need something funny now and then.  If you haven't seen the T-Rex compete on American Ninja Warrior, you need to.  It'll make your day.

As if I needed another excuse to buy more books!  Epic Reads has a list of Winter YA cover reveals!

Anybody out there struggling with their summer fitness goals?  No?  Oh, yeah.  Me neither.  I liked this list of fitness tips for the reluctant exerciser.

For my teacher friends out there who started their summers off by heading to pinterest or google to research and find more interesting ideas for their classroom in the fall, here are a couple links that I found that I think will be helpful for me.

From  Do you notice all your students?  I mean really notice them?  Even the quiet ones?

From  Making connections with your students that are meaningful is difficult.  It's something I want to work on a lot more next year.  I feel like I didn't do a great job of that last year.
What's Coming Up in June
Although I'm never really sure what I'll be reading and when it'll be posted, here are some books on my TBR for the next month.

I am finally finishing this book.  I'm actually currently reading it, but it's taking a long time...

I just started The Mark of Athena and I am reminded of how much I love Rick Riordan!  This is the 3rd book in the Heroes of Olympus series.  I read the first two within the past year, but I just can't convince myself to spend so much concentrated time on the whole series.  So I'm spreading it out.

This is one from my classroom that I need/want to read.  It's been on my list for awhile now and really needs some attention.
There will, of course, be many more!
