Book Update: June 2014

Here we are at the end of June already! Thanks to an eight-day vacation with limited Internet access, I read a TON this month–mostly quick, easy fiction. For your sake, I’m going to limit this update to the top 10 books of the month. (But if you really want to see everything that I read, you can check out Goodreads.)

2. You’re Smarter Than You Think: A Kid’s Guide to Multiple Intelligences by Thomas Armstrong–4 stars

Written for children, this book is a great primer on Multiple Intelligences–a great read for adults, too.

3. Notes from a Blue Bike by Tsh Oxenreider–three stars

4. The Everything Homeschooling Book by Sherri Linsenbach–four stars

5. A Fall of Marigolds by Susan Meissner–four stars

This book is a fabulous historical read–it really piqued my interest in Ellis Island history.

6. The In-Between by Jeff Goins–four stars

7. Right Where I Belong by Krista McGee–four stars

The entire trio of books is a quick, fun read, but this one was my favorite.

The author is a children’s librarian and ASL interpreter–great tips for integrating sign language!

What I'm Reading: July 2014 (Lone Star Signers)

Here’s what’s cooking for July! I think Goodreads is starting to get a good “read” on me–the recommendations are starting to make me happy on a regular basis.

What are YOU reading this month?

    • It was lovely to lay down each afternoon with a book and read, read, read. Plus…you know…28 hours in the car (plus day trips). 🙂

  1. I am reading Susan Branch’s ‘A Fine Romance’. It’s her diary/art journal from her recent two month trip to England. I give it 4 stars, but I have spent time in England – so I get it. And I LOVE Susan Branch! Thanks for the reviews. I love to read and I spotted my next read!

    • Sounds like a fun read–I’ve requested it from the library! 🙂 Hoping to make it to England sometime in my life.

    • I have been reading a lot of non-fiction! I think it’s the best way to get in “professional development” as a homeschooler–free and on my own schedule! I’d love to hear which books/movies you recommend…
