What I am Reading Wednesday...

I am stealing this idea from one of my favorite bloggers:

Juice Boxes and Crayolas

Go ahead and click on her blog. She's a teacher and a runner and her blog has a little bit of both!

I am enjoying my second week of summer.  I am still job hunting, but with the market being flooded here and a lot of school districts having layoffs, who knows?  I am still praying for some job dust to come my way!   In the meantime, I am enjoying reading every afternoon!

I just finished the second Shades of Grey book. LOVED IT!! I loved it more than the first. I am waiting for my third book to arrive in the mail. Thank you Ebay gift card!!

Here are some books my friend gave to me:



Plus, I checked out a book from the library by another author I have followed for awhile. I also have this book on my shelf because I saw another teacher blogger was reading it. It sounds like a good one!



This is another trilogy, so I guess I will be buying the next two books. Of course the third one does not come out until November!!!

Well, that is what I will be reading for awhile! What are you reading?

Happy Reading !!

I am offically on summer vacation.

Today is the last day of school where I have been substitute teaching. I am sure the teachers are just as excited as the kids! My teacher friends work until Friday. Hopefully it will be a quick week for them!  

I do not know what I will be doing come September, but I keep praying I will have a full time job teaching. Send me job dust fellow bloggers!

Happy Summer everyone!!

Happy Reading!

  Summer Reading Linky Party 

Here are my summer reading plans:


I just started Fifty Shades of Grey.... I like it so far ( wink, wink )



I read the first book by Lauren Oliver in this series. I was so good. It was recommended with the phrase, " If you loved The Hunger Games, try this book."


I am sure I will have to continue reading the "Shades" books once I finish the first one.


Who doesn't love a good Emily Giffin book?

I am sure I will read whatever I can get my hands on this summer!

Happy Reading!
