Reading progress update: I've read 332 out of 332 pages.
Wyrd Sisters - Terry Pratchett

One of those Discworld books that only get better with every single reread.  Pratchett absolutely hit his stride with this ... one of my all-time favorites, by far not for the Shakespeare references alone.

Success
Simply Irresistible (Flatiron Five) - Deborah Cooke

Tyler finds himself trapped in a mess of his own making.  He solves it by asking out the smart and beautiful Amy.  He has wanted to talk to her for a while.

 

Amy always feels like she is not enough.  She has trouble from her past that she hopes to never see again.  Will getting involved with Tyler's plan ruin everything?

 

Loved this story.  So excited to read the rest of the series.  These characters were so meant to be.  I loved the humor, the heat, and the sexy was out of this world hot!  I thought is was great and cannot wait for the next book in the Flatiron Five series.  I give this a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Unconventionally Honest
The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life - Mark Manson

I recently finished listening to "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck" in audible. I used to listen to a little while of it whenever I walked my dog, and it took me quite a long time to get to the end. 

 

I found this book to be very fun to hear. It has many interesting ideas and views that actually make you reflect for a while on how you see the world, in a hilarious but honest way. Some of the main focuses are how you choose your values (how you measure yourself and your success) and, well, how you choose what to give a f*ck about. Mark Manson's narrative voice kept me engaged at all times, as he did not leave his ideas in just theory, but used anecdotes (many times funny, many times painfully honest) and examples to help explain his point. I personally loved all the historic figures and various people he mentioned to illustrate his ideas. Reading or listening to a narrator who was not afraid to curse or to laugh at himself was very refreshing, and in my opinion this was a great companion for my walks.

Sideways Stories From Wayside School - Louis Sachar,Adam McCauley

Wayside School was supposed to have 30 classrooms all next to each other on lone level, but in an architectural accident it was built sideways instead. Now 30 stories high with classrooms one on top of another hilarious stories begin to emerge. 

 

Along the way we meet Mrs. Gorf the meanest teacher of all and Todd who always gets sent home early. John who can only read upside down and more kids from this crazy mixed up school. 

 

A great independent reader for students. Students can practice their predicting skills as they try and figure out what will happen to Wayside next. Then they can try and create their own sideways story to include or illustrate what they think Wayside looks like.

Diary of a Wombat - Jackie French,Bruce Whatley

Read along as a wombat takes us on a journey of her week - digging holes, sleeping, eating, and training the new neighbors. Wombats can get into lots of trouble during the course of a week.

 

Students will laugh as the wombat wreaks havoc. After reading students can write their own animal diaries and come up with fun scenarios for their animals to be in.
