First Day Jitters - Julie Danneberg,Judy Love

I would use this in grade K-6 because it is so necessary for kids to feel like it is normal to be nervous for the first day class. This bool also allows those students who are not nervous understand where the "new" kids or the kids who are very shy feel. This would be something I would read on the first day of school

First Day of School Jitters
Look Out Kindergarten, Here I Come / Preparate, kindergarten! Alla voy! (Max and Ruby) (Spanish Edition) - Nancy Carlson,Nancy Carlson

This is the BEST book to read on the first day of kindergarten. Almost all children are nervous on the first day of school, but especially kindergarten since most of them have never been to school before. This is a book I would read to ensure my students that there is nothing to be nervous about at school. I will make sure that all of my students know that our classroom is a safe place and that everyone is loved. I also love that they have this book in different languages and will accommodate all students. It is a great read!

First Day Jitters - Julie Danneberg,Judy Love

I could use this book on the first day of school to read aloud to my class. I would make jitter juice before I read the book so they could drink it while listening. The intended grade level for this class could be first, second, or third grade. The guided reading level for this book is L.

Brief Thoughts: Bridal Jitters
Bridal Jitters (Harmony #0.5) - Jayne Castle

Bridal Jitters

by Jayne Castle

prequel novella, book 0.5 of Harmony series

 

**This series is also known as the Ghost Hunter series, and intersects at various points throughout with the Arcane Society series, written by Jayne Ann Krentz as Amanda Quick.   Jayne Castle is another of Jayne Ann Krentz's pseudonyms.

 

Virginia Burch, a psychic archeologist, can't believe her luck when she meets Sam Gage, a ghost hunter and owner of prime real estate in the Old Quarters of Cadence, above the Dead City.  He offers her his space to live and start up her business.  What follows is an even more intriguing proposal-to become his wife.  Strictly for professional reasons, of course.  Their marriage of convenience would lead to a very lucrative business partnership, Gage & Burch Consulting. Until something throws a wrench into the plan: the undeniable sensual energy that naturally exists between them-and a love so strong that it could wake the ghosts below.



Bridal Jitters is a pretty good introductory to Jayne Castle's Harmony series (also known as Ghost Hunters series).  It's a very straight forward telling, basing off of a romance with a "marriage-of-convenience" trope, which actually means something slightly different within the scope of the story's world.  Bridal Jitters doesn't dwell too much on world building or back history of the Harmony world, but we get a sense that it takes place sometime in the future and that psychic energy and psychic powers are very much a norm here, as are alien beings and something called UDEMs, unstable dissonant energy manifestations, that they also call ghosts.

I'm not entirely sure what the timeline of this world is, and DID have a little trouble figuring out what was going on in the very beginning, but afterwards, things started making sense. So in a way, I kind of liked the rapid-fire way in which everything was just introduced as if it were all normal, everyday occurrences.

First and foremost, though, I understand that this book was really a paranormal romance set to the background of a paranormal romantic suspense. Virginia and Sam were a nice couple, but nothing out of the ordinary as far as romances go.

But still, Bridal Jitters did very well setting the stage for the rest of the series and I'm quite interested in continuing on.

(AUDIOBOOK REVIEW) BREAKING MEASURES BY: EMMA RAVELING
Breaking Measures - Emma Raveling

 

So I am so excited to say that I have had my very first audiobook experience, and I liked it! I already knew I loved this story, as I read the kindle version, but I have been on the fence about audiobooks from the get go. I was concerned that I wouldn’t like the narrator, or that it would be too hard to really get into the story as I would likely be doing other tasks while reading…which is just so different from my normal reading experience of basically shutting everything else down and fully immersing myself in the book. Honestly though, I had none of those issues with Breaking Measures. I even thought that the narrator gave this story an extra little flare that I didn’t even know I wanted. I could easily envision her as Leila, she really fit this story perfectly. Like I said, this story is incredible, and if you’re an audiobook lover than I highly recommend getting the audiobook version of Breaking Measures, you won’t be disappointed!

 

Buy it on Amazon:http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B017Y37Q02?keywords=breaking%20measures&qid=1448839175&ref_=sr_1_1&sr=8-1
