    I just finished Fragile by Lisa Unger and I was hooked from the first page. I don't see how anyone wouldn't be. She is a wonderful writer and the people of the town called The Hollows spoke to me. It is a character-driven mystery and a sequal is out now. I can't wait to start it.

    If my practicum, my university classes, the English Honor Society, and my actual job that pays me didn't keep me so busy, I would be reading either Passenger by Alexandra Bracken or More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera. (I've started both but haven't found time to finish them.)

    Now I'm reading Alice Hoffman's latest, Probable Future. It is filled with her usual magical realism and fantastic.

    I'm reading Hidden Figures. My mom got it for me on Amazon. I need to pick it up more often. I always have my kindle with me but I never seem to pull it out :(

    Just finished 'The Nest' and now reading 'Before the Fall'. I've been enjoying spring G break reading on my veranda.

    I'm re-reading "A Mind for Numbers". It's a book on how to best learn maths and sciences. Preparing for next year.

    How is the book? I'm a big fan of Carol Dweck and especially Jo Boaler, but haven't heard of this book before. (Plus, bonus points for saying "maths" instead of math :))

    It's really good. Definitely worthy enough for re-reading. After I read it the first time, I made a lot of changes in my classroom procedures to better help students learn such as more frequent quizzes.

    I just finished reading The Roanoke Girls by Amy Engel. A bit disturbing at times but a really gripping book. One of those books you have to read the whole thing quickly because it bugs you not to know how it ends LOL
