My Monday posts are generally just a highlight of what I've been reading during the week so if you'd like to see all that I've been reading, follow my Goodreads page.
Here are some fun book-related TikToks I made last week:
@bibliophilebeth #booktok #PrimeDayDreamDeals #selfcare #mentalhealth #librariansoftiktok ♬ Reading when the world is a dumpster fire - Frankie Love
@bibliophilebeth When this is the weather in July, you mark yourself as unavailable in your calendar and sit outside and read #librariansoftiktok #schoollibrarian #booktok ♬ original sound - catherineoharasbebe
Last week I reviewed:
Emotional Inheritance: A Therapist, Her Patients, and the Legacy of Trauma by Galit Atlas, PhD
Last week I read and loved:
Hummingbird by Natalie Lloyd
There’s a teacher in the story that says a pen is a direct line to a person’s heart. Well, Natalie Lloyd’s pen draws a whole lot of lines to readers’ hearts.
The Queen of Kindergarten by Derrick Barnes, illustrated by Vanessa Brantley-Newman
|MJ, with her tiara and rainbow-colored braids, absolutely slays on her first day of kindergarten... by being helpful and kind and having a great time while doing it.|
Like by Annie Barrows, illustrated by Leo Espinosa
A picture book that brilliantly sets up the thesis that humans are more alike than different by showing the ways we are alike/different to other objects. A great read aloud for Preschool-1st grade classes.
Bittersweet: How Sorrow and Longing Make Us Whole by Susan Cain
Currently reading with my ears:
I Can Make This Promise by Christine Day
Purchasing books from any of the above Bookshop affiliate links support independent bookstores and gives me a small percentage of the sale.
I love the idea of a pen being the line to a person's heart. Definitely got to read Hummingbird.ReplyDelete
Hummingbird is already on my list. I can't wait to read it. As much as I enjoyed King of Kindergarten, I had a problem with the king idea. I wanted all the children to be kings or queens or whatever - so long as they are all equal.ReplyDelete
I loved I Can Make This Promise. Thanks for the introduction to Bittersweet.
Fun Tik Toks. Thanks for sharing those. I will be watching for Hummingbird and Like.ReplyDelete
I love your TikToks this week, Beth! And these books look great too—I really need to read Hummingbird, because I (along with so many others) have loved Natalie Lloyd's other books. Like sounds like a wonderful read as well! Thanks so much for the wonderful post!ReplyDelete
Everyone seems to have opened When Women Were Dragons! I have to get back to that one. I need to learn to use TikTok, too (but I'm an old lady and I'm fighting it! LOL)ReplyDelete
I'm loving your BookToks--how much fun! :)ReplyDelete
Happy reading this week!
