Non-Bookish News:

What a busy week! It was the last week of the quarter at school, so it was a mad dash to get everything done. I did go on a field trip on Wednesday with the students in the Physics class. We went to see Hidden Figures and then heard a retired NASA pilot give a talk about his experiences. I hadn’t seen the movie previously and I loved it! What a great movie! And the pilot that talked to us had great stories as well. Overall, one of my favorite field trips. This week, I will accompany the senior class to a nearby Mosque. We are a Catholic school, and the seniors all take world religions as a class. So, they examine Islam, Judaism, various Christian denominations, Buddhism, and Hinduism. Its a great class and I am really excited to see the Mosque and hear more about Islam. Even though I am Catholic, I think learning about other religions is so fundamental to making the world a peaceful place.

It was a pretty low key week otherwise. It has warmed up again. Saturday and Sunday are suppose to reach nearly 80. I’m over it. Where is fall? And then I saw on the weather channel’s winter projection that we are going to have above average temperatures this winter! I was so sad. I need snow! We didn’t get any last year and I was counting on it!

Next weekend will be crazy busy. I have to supervise the ACT on Saturday and run a high school placement test prep class. Then Sunday we have Open House. This is where prospective students and their parents visit the school to get some information. So, its gonna be a long week without a day off! That means 14 days straight at work. Sigh. When will I read?!?

So, whats new with you this week? Did you read any of the same books I did? Did you find any great book deals I need to grab ASAP? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I’m interested to hear what readers are thinking about the new K. Bromberg book and am loving some of the covers for your Audio Arcs (especially that red dress!) Your field trips also sound like fascinating fun – I would have signed up for Hidden Figures + NASA discussion in a heartbeat! Hope you find some reading-time in the week ahead and have a great week! <3

    • Oh Cuffed is SO EMOTIONAL!!! I was not prepared for all the feels! Lots of triggers though, so if you are someone who needs to know, check out my trigger warning when the review posts on Tuesday.
      Field trips are part of the awesomeness of teaching! Its great!

    • Oh I am glad you had a similar experience in Catholic schools. Sometimes they get such a bad rap, but the school I work for is Franciscan and very open/welcoming. I think its so great the kids get to talk to those with different religious beliefs.
      Yes, we have already had 9 weeks of school. It feels like MUCH more… Is it Thanksgiving break yet?!?

  2. I wish I had been on that field trip. I listened to the audiobook of Hidden Figures. There were these awesome inspirational parts, but then there were a lot of info dumps. I heard the movie is much better. I went to Catholic school, and I remember learning about all religions. I think learning about different religions/cultures/etc is a way to build bridges and maybe erase some of the bias that exist, but that is just my opinion. I used to proctor the SATs when I was teaching, and I did the extended time room. That’s a long day, but I was paid we’ll. Can’t wait to hear some of your thoughts on your new books. Mistletoe Me Baby caught my attention.

    • Yes, I think my students get SO much out of really learning about other religions and then talking to believers of other religions. Its a wonderful opportunity. Yes, the extended time room is a long day, but the pay is GREAT. Since I am the admin for the ACT, I get paid as an admin with an extended time room so its totally awesome. The money comes in handy (especially since I want that new Kindle Oasis!)

  3. You have some great books to look forward to! I’m especially excited to see how you get on with your new audiobooks! I hope you have a great week! 🙂

  4. What a cool field trip! I haven’t seen Hidden Figures but I noticed that it’s on HBO this month so I need to make a point to sit down and watch it. Those Explained by a Gansta videos are a riot. Hope the next week goes smoothly for you… and that you manage to find even a little time to read!

    Awww, I’m glad that you enjoyed Hidden Figures. That’s a movie that I really enjoyed as well. That sucks about you working that long week with no days off but I know that you’ll get through it because you’re the bomb!

    I haven’t read much lately, only An Ex for Christmas by Lauren Layne so I haven’t read any of the same books as you but the books you read look fabulous.

    I hope you have a wonderful week and that work isn’t too hard to get through, Samantha. Happy reading!

  6. Wow! What a book haul!

    I haven’t seen Hidden Figures yet but it’s on my watchlist! I’m glad to hear you enjoyed it. What a fun field trip!

    Good luck with your busy week this week! I hope you find some down time to recharge – and read of course!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog

  7. I really, really need to catch up on Nalini Singh’s series as I enjoyed the first book a ton. I’m in the mood for a good paranormal romance so I need to hit my library and grab book two soon. It looks like you have tons of great reading ahead of you. Enjoy!
