Non-Bookish News:

Parent teacher conferences are over. It was a LONG day of work, but it went well, so its all good. I move grades with my students, and currently I have Juniors and Seniors, so I have been with them and their parents for 2-3 years now. We have a great relationship so I enjoy seeing the parents and we usually have great conversations. Overall, I can’t really complain. I know some teachers in my building had some pretty tough conferences!

I’m getting evaluated this week at work as well. I HATE getting evaluated. I am always afraid they will fire me on the spot. I have been teaching for 10 years but that fear never eases. The anticipation is the worst too. They tell us the week the plan to observe us, but they don’t tell us the day or the class period. Its just terrible. I get so worked up about it. Gah!

Its finally getting cold here and I love it! There was actually frost on the ground one morning! I know its crazy, but I LOVE the cold. I could never move somewhere warm. Its just not me. What is the weather like where you are?

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 want LIE TO ME!!! But I can’t get it!! I’m going to have to actually ask Berkley for it, like in an email. BOOOOO!!! You’re so lucky!!!

    Hey, you’ll do great on your evaluation! You’ve obviously been teaching for 10 years for a reason 😉 HUGS!!!! Hang in there this week!!

    • Awww thanks for the support!
      And I don’t know how, but by some divine intervention I ended up on a Berkley list that sends me the widgets for all their books AND a link to request final copies of paperbacks! Seriously, its unbelievable cool and I have NO idea how it happened. I am afraid they will soon figure out their mistake or something!

  2. Wow…what a busy week you had on the blog! Take a few deep breaths! I’m sure you’ll do fine in your evaluation!! (But I know the feeling…everytime I get called to the boss’ conference room my heart stops!)

  3. It’s gorgeous outside and I am still by the window with it wide open, while my husband is freezing under a blanket in the living room. I could never do hot weather, I need my 4 seasons.

    All those amazing covers! I hope you enjoy the books your grabbed this week.

    Have a great week, Samantha! Happy Reading!

  4. Dark Corners by A.M. Madden is book #3 in the series, right? I really enjoyed the first installment but did not love the next one. So I made a somewhat difficult decision to not continue reading the series. Seeing your rating, maybe I made the right choice.

    • I enjoyed book 1 as well. Book 2 was a bit meh for me, but I decided to give book 3 a shot. I think I can officially say I am not interested in any more books in this series.

    • Thanks for the support! I agree-I think its the people who don’t need to be nervous that are usually nervous! Sometimes when i talk to coworkers who are freaking out I’m like “What!? You have nothing to worry about!”.

  5. I hope they evaluate you at your best time of the day, whenever that is. It is always hard to be judged, I hate it.
    I am liking the cold, but I want to ride my motorcycle too, so I am torn. I love the snow and actually feel pretty acclimated to the cold now, (i am one of the ones without a jacket in 45 degree weather). I wish I could have a few more days to ride tho.
    You got some great looking books, I hope you enjoy them all. Have a great week!

  6. Good luck with evals, I think that would be nerve wracking! How do you expect me to teach with you standing there lol? That would be my thought! But you’ll do fine, you’ve been around 10 years. 🙂 I like the cooler weather too, it’s nice to be able to go without AC after the summer months. Although I’m not looking forward to the dead of winter ha ha.

  7. That’s so interesting that you move grades with your students. Sounds like a great system, stops you get burnt out on teaching the same syllabus over and over, plus you really get to know your students. I love it!

    • Yes, I actually like the change each year. Although, by the time they are seniors, sometimes we get a bit sick of each other 🙂 Its great if you have a group of students you love. But, if you aren’t super happy with a group, it can be rough to be with them for 4 straight years!
