Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read.

 

Fun fact: as you are reading this, I’m getting 2 wisdom teeth taken out :S

Update (19/9 @ 6:30pm): I did not get them removed. It’s been postponed to the 10th. Sorry in advance for any wisdom-tooth related queued posts I have.

Hosted by 5 Minutes for Books:

You can participate in What’s on Your Nightstand? in several ways. Choose what’s appealing to you:

  1. Take a picture or simply give a list of the stack of books that you are in the process of reading or planning to read (it might be on your nightstand, on a bookshelf, or like me, under your bed).
  2. Give short reviews of the book or books that you read that month.
  3. Tell about what you are reading and why. I love to read the backstory on books. Did someone give it to you? Are you trying out a new genre at the recommendation of a friend (or website)? Did you stumble across a new author in a used bookstore?
  4. Fill us in on your reading habits. When are you reading these books? Is one reserved for bedtime reading? Does one stay in your car to be read while you are waiting? Do you read just one book at a time?

For many of you, fall is right around the corner. For me, however, it is time for hayfever galore! I’ll be in the mood for contemporaries and sweet romances. Alas, the publishing houses go by the northern hemisphere mood, but fear not! These suggestions will be friendly for both Poles!

Prompt from That Artsy Reader Girl: “in honour of school starting back up soon, come up with your own topic that fits the theme of school or learning! Books that take place at school/boarding school/during study abroad, books you read in school, textbooks you liked/didn’t like, non-fiction books you loved or want to read, etc.”

Hopefully I’ll be like Holly Holliday from Glee, and dress up for my students! 😛

I’m going to be a History teacher, so here are some fun historical-fiction to enjoy within Young Adult Literature.

Mailbox Monday #7

Monday’s are drab, I know. I have something to be peppy for: books <3. Mailbox Monday is a great way to think about all the exciting books coming your way. This Mailbox Monday is a particularly special one, as it’s my birthday this Wednesday. I’ve ordered many books, as a “hey, you have no self-control” sort of thing. Let’s see what’s arrived so far…
