Non-Bookish News:

I’m so excited for October! It starts my 3 favorite months-October because it finally gets cooler, November because of Thanksgiving, and December because its my birthday and Christmas! I am a huge fan of winter, so I love the cold, dreary months. BRING IT ON!

It did finally cool off here! It was really nice last week-chilly in the morning, and a high in the 70’s. This week it goes back up to the 80’s (boo) but at least it won’t be miserably hot. Whats your weather like?

It was a bit of a stressful week at work-the ‘newness’ of the school year has worn off and the kids start acting out a bit. If you have ever taught sophomores, you know that has to be like the worst age. Freshmen are immature, but they are still scared. Seniors might have senioritis, but they are mature and can be reasoned with. Juniors are so stressed out because they finally understand why they need to care about their grades so they are too busy to act up. But sophomores? They are just out of their minds. Still immature but they think they aren’t. They don’t care about their grades yet, and they think they are invincible. They were REALLY trying my patience this week. Thankfully, they are the only group acting up (in a few months, the seniors will be the difficult ones! Then the last month of school its the Freshmen. They all take turns).

I’m ready for #ARCtober! I am hoping to make a dent in my seriously overdue pile of ARCs. Its a problem! I only have a few scheduled reviews for the month so I am not beholden to a super strict schedule this month. I’m thinking I might even avoid signing up for reviews in November/December too. Next month I’d like to do the “Read a series” challenge to catch up on a few I haven’t finished!

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. That first paragraph is also me! I love the cold weather and the early nights. It just so cozy. This is my favorite three months of the year. We should be related really, my sister loves the summer and all things hot, humid and the sun!!! I think she was adopted! 😉

    Good luck with the school year I don’t teach but if I did I always prefer the younger kids the older ones scare me lol

    Good luck with ARCtober, I don’t read that many ARCs anymore but it should like such a fun challenge. If you are in the COYER group feel free to share it there, if not I can share it. 🙂

    Have a great week, Samantha! Happy Reading!

  2. I’m looking forward to the cooler nights. It’s still muggy and 70s here after the sun sets. Not so eager for winter though. LOL But i do like getting out my winter clothes. There’s usually some new stuff I picked up on sale and packed away for the summer. And I like all of my boots! LOL My ARCS are still a mess. I won’t be grabbing any new ones until I get caught up. I just keep telling myself that………..

  3. I love those three months as well. I hate summer with a passion. Just don’t like driving when it’s icy or snowy out, but other than that I say bring on Winter!
    I hope you do well with your arcs. I try to keep no more than 4-5 at a time. Or less, but it’s a struggle at times to do that.
    Have a great week!

  4. You know what, this is the start of my favorite three months of the year too, because I will get to see my daughter each month. Yeah for the final quarter of the year! Good luck with the kids. Hopefully they settle in. If not, at least you have breaks in Nov and Dec to look forward to. I hope you conquer ARCtober too!

  5. I just love fall time too….I am so glad we are in for cooler weather …I am done with all the heat hehe Hope you have a fun time and get some great progress on your ARCtober challenge.

  6. I love this time of year too- from now right up until Christmas. then I just want to fast forward to spring lol. But October is the BEST.

    That’s funny about sophomores- and yeah doesn’t sound wrong either. 🙂

  7. I love the end of the year, too! There’s so much stuff happening. Sorry that the kids are acting out. I was probably one of those sophomores. I definitely didn’t care about my grades or about listening to anybody. Good luck with #ARCtober!

  8. Oh goodness, I can still remember my sophomore English class. Our teacher retired at the end of the year because we were terrible students to her. I still feel bad about that. I wasn’t one of the bad kids but I didn’t speak up nearly enough. She hated our entire class. Even the good kids. Haha.

  9. Being a teacher is far from a stroll in the park! I have the utmost admiration for them. And yes so many things happening at the end of the year. Have a great week!
