I am using this time to revisit some of my favorite books from my childhood (I think we could all use some comfort during these times). So, currently I am re-reading to The Magician’s Nephew by C.S. Lewis! Will I make it through all of the Narnia books? WHO KNOWS! But they are available on Libby/Overdrive for you to read OR listen to!
Download the Libby app and revisit your childhood!
I love a good Harry Potter podcast (as you all may know). I’ve slowly been working my way through them over the years but this one is new to me! Check it out:
Goodbye, Perfect by Sara Barnard is a great and different perspective on things we hear about in the news every day: inappropriate relationships with teachers and students.
Eden McKinley knows she can’t count on much in this world, but she can depend on Bonnie, her solid, steady, straight-A best friend. So it’s a complete shock when, five days before the start of their GCSEs, Bonnie runs away with a guy Eden knows nothing about. And it’s the last person she would ever have expected. Her teacher. When the police ask Eden for help – she in unsure where her loyalties will lie and she is forced to question what she thought she knew was right.
Often stories like this are from the first-hand perspective – but hearing from a friend who is witnessing the situation is interesting. A good read for Teens.
Whether or not you are in love this Valentine’s “season”, it is still always fun to read “the greats” confess their love. I’ve been working my way through The 50 Greatest Love Letters of All Time and getting in the spirit. I’ll be honest – I tried a few different “love letter compilations” and this one was the best so far.
So go get inspired!
