These two events always mark the start of SUMMER for me so I am joining in this summer reading linky hosted by Jodi from The Clutter Free Classroom. It’s a party/giveaway combo to find out what personal and professional reading you have in store for summer vacation. Click HERE to join in!
Moving on to my leisure reading…Am I the only one who feels like I do not have time to read for fun until summer vacation rolls around?
I am a HUGE Jodi Picoult Fan! Her stories always central around highly controversial issues and she captures the grey areas so remarkably. I’ve read almost all her books but I still have a few that I haven’t and Perfect Match is the next one on my list.
I can’t wait to see what everyone else is going to be reading so I can add to my list!
I've read No More I'm Done and LOVED it! I hope you like it!
So glad I found your site! I am rereading D5 again this summer as well. And I love Jodi Picoult, but you're right – summer is the only time for leisure reading! Oh and we celebrated my dad's birthday this weekend too!

I heart Jodi P too . . . I have read all of them except her newest one. Not so sure how I feel about the whole wolf thing. You will love the Hunger Games. I waited to jump on the bandwagon until last month and it only took me four days to finish the series. I am your newest follower 🙂 Pop in for a visit if you get a chance.

LOVED The Hunger Games trilogy!!! I also LOVE LOVE LOVE Daily 5. Unfortunately, I won't be able to use it next year but I am hoping to make my new principal a believer. I am your newest follower and would love for you to check out my blog!!
I'm loving this linky 🙂
Lisa- Thanks for the recommendation, it's at the top of my list!
Sara- We're like two bloggers from the same pod!
Kelley & Cindy- I've heard HG is a super fast read and I'm excited to be in the know. I never got on board with Twilight series but I have high hopes for Hunger Games!
I am also re-reading The Daily 5 and I just received the Cafe! I also held out on the Hunger Games, but read through it very quickly and will probably read the rest of the series:) I have never heard of No More I'm Done, I will have to check it out.

Just found you! I like the name of your blog.
LOVED the Hunger Games.
I like Jodi's books, but some I avoid 'cause they're such tear jerkers.

Been meaning to pick up a Jodi Picoult book. The "No More I'm Done" book looks like it would be really good. Hunger Games is really great. I want to also read Gregor the Overlander by Collins.

I thought I was the only one who hadn't read Hunger Games yet. I'm about 1/3 of the way through and for the first time ever want to jump the end so I can know what happens (I won't do that-but very, very tempted :).
LOVE Teach Like a Champion! Wonderful read for all educators.
You will love the Hunger Games!
