This Week’s New Releases:

What I Found Online:

This Week’s Book Haul:

eARC from Berkley (and one of my most anticipated reads!)

I got a surprise package from Helena Hunting with a signed copy of Pucked Love and some swag!
I also got several paperbacks from publishers! It was a good week for bookmail!

Non-Bookish News:

I don’t normally put stock in the ‘full moon makes people crazy’ theory, but this week really tested me! The students were nutty, we had all kinds of issues that we never have, I had 3 irregularity reports to write from the ACT test (that never happens) and I was sick on Thursday. It was just nutty! I will be glad once all this craziness and Halloween are over.

I had to work both Saturday and today which is rough! Saturday I administered the ACT. I was at work from 7:00 am until 3:00 (which is pretty much a normal day!) and today we have Open House. Since I teach in a private school, we have a day where potential students come to check out the school and get some information. Making a decision on which private high school to attend is a big deal. I mean, these parents are going to pay between $8,000-$20,000 a year for private education (and that is just high school-then there is college tuition!). I went to public school growing up so its all strange to me, but private schools are a big deal here. So, we have to meet with potential students and their parents to show them the school, discuss our programs, and answer questions. Since I teach special education, I usually have many parents who want to chat about how students are provided with support. By the end of the 2 hours, my voice will be shot!

I can’t believe it will be November this week! I have to have a full hearing test on Thursday. My hearing has declined significantly. Right now, I am at the upper range of what my hearing aids can do. Sadly, I’m still not able to hear conversations well. So, we will do an updated hearing evaluation and make a decision about where to go from here. The only thing that really stresses me out about it all is the cost. Hearing aids are so expensive and health insurance doesn’t cover a single penny of it.

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. Yeah if I have kids, I will probably put them in a private school or charter school, not a fan of how public schools are now And parents are more involved which I think is a plus. I went to public school but I always felt like I wasn’t really that educated to be honest. In college I had to do a lot of back study work to keep my grades up because there were many things I just didn’t know that I should have been taught. Hope this week isn’t too stressful though. and yeah Halloween can be so CRAZY. I just lock the doors, cook myself some homemade chili and homemade bread and watch some Blackbeards Ghost.

  2. I am always mystified by what is and isn’t covered by insurance. I hope your hearing tests go well. If you need hearing aids, you should consider a Go Fund Me. My friend at work did it to raise some money for divorce expenses. You’d be shocked how every little bit adds up. The Helen Hunting package sounds awesome

  3. A lot of info today! First let me congrat you on Helena’s giveaway. She is a great writer! Then I am sorry to hear about your loss of hearing! Mine is diminishing as well because of “age”. Nothing compared to you though but yes it’s really frustrating. I hope you get some rest this week after having worked so much! Happy Sunday

    • My hearing was always going to be an issue. Hearing loss runs in my family, plus I had a million ear infections as a kid and tubes 3 times. It was bound to affect my hearing. It just sucks that it happened in my 30’s! Thats so young for hearing problems!

  4. I hope this week goes well after a working weekend. I too worked the whole weekend 9-6 on Saturday and 10:30-5 today. But I have tomorrow off! Then 4 more days of work. I hope to catch up a bit and do laundry. Although my daughter has physical therapy in the morning.

    You have some great reviews coming up this week – many are authors I have read. Enjoy your books. Anne – Books of My Heart

  5. WOW what a week at school. Sorry about the hear. Hope it goes well. Ya, I can’t believe it’s almost November. Only 2 months left to this year. ^_^

  6. yeah, the Uber thing was hilarious! My son went to private school until high school. They didn’t offer those classes. That didn’t work well and I eventually found him another private one. He has special needs and never would have made it in public school. Nice new releases. This year has been huge for new books. My book budget feels that. LOL I hope you have a calmer week:)

    • My book budget burst a few months ago! Yikes! Glad you were able to find a good school for your son. Its tough! Not all private schools have special education services and many parents are left with no choice but public!

    Love that UBER thing. Super funny and true! That really stinks about the cost of hearing aids. How is that not covered at all?!? Have a great week!

  8. I saw you had 13 comments on this post and after the ull moon and the week of craziness I decided that was just tempting fate. :LOL SO allow me to take you from 13 to 14. 😉

    Health insurance doe snot cover hearing aids???!!! WTH? I am utterly *shocked* at that. That’s just… absurd. 🙁

  9. Ha I love that Uber quote! So true. 🙂

    Wow that’s… expensive. And even before college. Eek I worry about higher education pricing kids from more modest backgrounds out of an education at all in college. Which I guess is nothing new, judging from the student loan/ debt numbers out there. Anyway… that DOES sound like a long day!

    Good luck with your hearing test! There are so many things that health insurance doesn’t cover in this country…
