I don’t think there has been a publication day I have anticipated more than today in a very long time! 2021 has already been an amazing book year, and February 2nd is an incredibly exciting day for readers. Whether you are looking for fiction or non-fiction, a faster-paced engrossing read, or a layered character-driven novel, a book rich with history, or a memoir, there really is a book for everyone today!
August 2019 vs. June 2020…first and last days of school!
It’s been pretty quiet on here as we wrapped up the last couple of weeks of “homeschooling”. While I don’t think we totally nailed the remote learning curriculum, we all survived and some days even thrived. It’s hard to believe we have 2nd and 5th graders now!
Our wonderful teachers were as supportive as they could be during such new and challenging circumstances and they taught me so much along the way too. The situation truly showed us how resilient kids are and we learned so much from them. While it is easier now to look back on the last few months will rose-colored glasses, I have my fingers crossed that Vermont’s plan to send kids (safely) back to school in the Fall is a go…
I have been waiting for this day for months and it is finally here! Tuesdays are new book release days and this particular Tuesday has such a great and eclectic mix of titles that there really is something for every reader. <3
All these details are coming at you a couple weeks late, but I guess it’s better now than never! While I am working on posting more regularly over on Instagram, posting on here takes a lot more time..which in theory I have more of lately, but the chaos of our days would say otherwise! 😉
Reading has always been one of my coping mechanisms to handle stress but this quarantine really has thrown that for a loop. I have struggled like many to focus which has meant reading has felt challenging at times.
