Wow. Ok, so that month-long absence was unanticipated. I wish I had oodles of books to tell you about, but I’ve been in a sad cycle of starting and abandoning audiobooks for the past month. I was all in on a super demanding semester that drained my energy and filled my brain with theory and methodology and plans, but did manage to work my way through a few books:
Life’s Work: A Moral Argument for Choice by Parker, Willie
The Dark Net: Inside the Digital Underworld by Jamie Bartlett
Marlena by Julie Buntin
And right now I’m nearly finished with The Fact of a Body by Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich, which I am LOVING.
Work keeps going, but I have a week until summer classes start back up and I’m really hoping to get a few afternoons of lazy reading. Without days in classrooms collecting data, summer means more project development and manuscript writing, which should also be a bit more book friendly. I’ve been swimming in literature on teacher perceptions of teacher-child relationships and have some research ideas brewing, which is the best feeling. So, I’m also assigning myself a ton of articles and processing time to really let things take off.
Though I haven’t been reading as much, there are a few books I really want to chat about. I’m hoping for the focus to sit down and gather my thoughts sometime soon.
Tell me all about what you’ve been reading and loving lately!
