WAITING OUT WINTER by Kelli Owen
Waiting Out Winter - Kelli Owen

A few years ago we had an invasion of caterpillars that was so bad we would be driving over a carpet of them to get into our garage. Seriously, our blacktop was a moving wave of caterpillars. It freaks me out to this day, but hey-at least they didn't fly. Just think about how hard it is to avoid flies!

 

WAITING OUT WINTER is about an invasion of killer flies; a government experiment gone wrong, (don't they always?) However this isn't your average romping, chomping creature feature. This is a quiet little horror story, taking place during an apocalypse, but focused on the disaster from a small town and family point of view. It's not gory, but it is poignant, sad and scary.

 

This was a short, entertaining story and only my second from Kelli Owen. I recommend it and I will be on to the second novella shortly!

 

You can get a copy here: WAITING OUT WINTER

 

*I bought this book with my hard earned cash and Kelli Owen was kind enough to sign it for me. Thank you, Kelli!*

Waiting is not Fun
Waiting Is Not Easy! (An Elephant and Piggie Book) - Mo Willems,Mo Willems

Review:

When Piggie makes Elephant wait for his surprise instead of just giving it to him, Elephant struggles with waiting.This is a good book to teach your students about patience. This is a such a sweet book to encourage students that waiting may not be easy but it is worth it in the end.

 

 

Leveling System:

 Lexile- 250L

 

Classroom Activity:

One activity that I would use in my classroom is that when students are having to wait their turn, such as if they are waiting their turn to speak, we will discuss how important it is to wait and how it sometimes it might hurt their friends feelings if they are not patient enough to wait their turn. This is a great activity to do at the beginning of the year when you are introducing your classroom rules.

The Hail Mary
Waiting Series Book 3
Adult Contemporary Romance, Coming of Age Trilogy
 
Sixteen years is a long time. In a marriage, it’s a milestone. On the gridiron, it’s a miracle. Reed Johnson wants more time for everything, but time is funny that way.
 
It can be cruel.
 
With a body that can’t quite take the hits it used to and a heart tired of being torn in two different directions, Reed is faced with a reality he’s not quite ready for—life without the game. He became a man under Friday night game lights and in college stadium tunnels, and without the grit and the glory that’s earned ten yards at a time, he’s afraid of what kind of man he’ll be.
 
But there’s more than a game at stake now.
 
Reed’s wife, Nolan, is afraid too. She’s seen what can happen when the love of her life pushes himself too hard, and she can’t escape the nightmares she relives after almost losing her entire world to one single play on the field.
 
There is no compromise when it comes to football. Same goes for the heart. You’re either all in, or you get crushed. For Reed and Nolan, the clock is ticking down. Time…it does that. One way or another, they’re going to have to make a choice.
 
This is their hail Mary.
 
This is win or lose.
 
(The Hail Mary is book 3 in The Waiting Series, which follows high school sweethearts Reed Johnson and Nolan Lennox through football, life, love and everything messy that goes along with it. The series begins with Waiting on the Sidelines and Going Long.)


 
 
  
 
The Hail Mary (The Waiting Series Book 3)The Hail Mary by Ginger Scott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is book #3, in the Waiting On The Sidelines series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. To avoid spoilers, and have a greater understanding of the series, I recommend reading this amazing series of books in order.

Reed & Nolan's story continues in this book with their relationship and where they are now. What was life like for them after college? Where is Reed going after football? Are they doing well? Is there love still strong?

Nolan is a good match for Reed. This story is so perfect on many levels. First of all, it shows some of the hardships they face. It highlights how they work things out. What support system they have, and more. I loved reading about some familiar faces and encourage you to read this incredibly emotional and sexy series.

This is a really good story with a lot of honesty. I loved how real the characters feel to me. Like if they were here in the room, we would be conversing about the story itself together. I also really love that there was no holds barred. These characters have been through quite a bit - and no I won't give spoilers - so I ABSOLUTELY encourage you to read.

Review of Waiting for the Barbarians by J.M. Coetzee
Waiting for the Barbarians - J.M. Coetzee

This was my third book by J.M. Coetzee and it was the best of the three I have read.  This book looks at a magistrate for the British Empire living in a frontier settlement of an African nation.  The book examines his anti-colonialist views at the end of a long life and career, and it also has a deeper look at his personal thoughts about the local people and his age.  I won't say much more as to not give anything away, but I would say this is a dark story that probably is not taught enough in history classes today.
