Huzzah, summer is here! I am really hoping to get my read on heavily…I’m so pleased I’m now 29 books into my 52 book challenge (one of my New Year’s Ambitions), and holiday time seems like the perfect time to read on and get plenty more books under the belt. I’m aiming to read ten books over the summer (getting me *thisclose* to the forties). Here’s part one of the summer list:
I am so enjoying this series! I’m about two-thirds of the way through Book 4 (A Feast For Crows) just now, and I know that as soon as I put it down I’ll be dying to go on to Book 5! Am a bit worried after that though – the next two books are yet to be released!
I love reading about religion, and I’ve heard great things about this book. Some reviews I’ve seen are comparing it to the excellent Under The Banner of Heaven, which is a stunning piece of reportage. Looking forward to getting my teeth into this!
I bought this book (and its sequel, Kiss My Math) months ago, but have been so busy this school year I haven’t read them yet! I’m hoping to read this over summer, KMM over the autumn, revise my GSCE maths in the spring, and to sign up for an A-level course next autumn. I used to really, properly love maths, but I had some very poor teachers in senior school and I lost all the joy of it. Since becoming a teacher, the passion has been re-awakened, and I’m excited to see what happens next! Maths FTW.
I’ve been a longtime fan of the website Go Fug Yourself, and meant to buy this when it first came out….but my good intentions were for naught! Very much looking forward to a good, trashy, fun read!
A couple of friends recommended this – far from encouraging laziness, it’s more about empowering students and encouraging them to think independently. A huge focus for me as a teacher. Looking forward to picking up some new tricks to take into the classroom!
