Today I start a new school year with my 2nd grade Jedi padawans. I’m super excited to be teaching and (hopefully) making an impact in my student’s lives. In the middle of setting up my classroom, I’ve also been busy writing and reading.
As for what I’ve been writing, I can’t tell you. *grin* That’s top secret information reserved for my brilliant agent. Lucky (or not so lucky!) agent man has been getting some projects from me in his inbox lately. Honestly, every time I send my agent something, this is my thought process:

I also have converted my dining room table into my new research center. It’s full of books, old letters and butcher paper. If I can pull this project off, you all owe me stacks of chocolate. I’m trying to keep this outlook:

My reading pile has been stacking up, too, with tons of ARCs of books coming out later this year and into 2014. Such great stuff coming up!
In the video below, I talk about three books:
RED by Alison Cherry
NEARLY GONE by Elle Cosimano
THE PROMISE OF AMAZING by Robin Constantine
All three of these books are amazing.
What have you been up to?
Great reviews, Christina!
Happy new school year! And very cool about the secret projects!
You’re so darling, Christina! And so on the ball! Beep, I need to get my act together and get involved in these ARC tours for crying out loud! I want to read all three of these books so bad.
Thanks girl! Yes, I have a bunch of balls flying but it makes my days exciting too. You should get involved in the ARC tours. They are a lot of fun. Plus you can see my crazy comments. LOL.
Great video, Christy! Those books all sound awesome!
And I love being in the know on the secret. 😉
Love the gifs! Best of luck on the school year! I’m right in the middle of getting ready and really could use a few more weeks of break 🙂
Great reviews. I love how you managed to make me want to read those books without a single spoiler. 🙂
PS: Sorry I’ve been mia here. I did campnano and then I had a “stack” of middle grade books waiting on me for reviews.
I want to read all of these.
I met old and new students today. I hope it’s great school year for all.
I echo your crazy on the school year, and raise you a wedge of cheese! I can’t even look at another book until I get through the stack of 70+ sitting here. Life seriously needs a pause button.
These books sounds pretty awesome, thanks for sharing Christina and good luck with your 2nd grade padawans! 🙂
