Envy: A Luxe Novel by Ann Godbersen- My favorite guilty pleasure books! This is my relaxing and fun read for the week,
Spaces & Places: Designing Classrooms for Literacy by Debbie Diller- I will be moving classrooms next year (and moving from a 2 hr block of Language Arts to 1 hr) so I am starting to think about how I want to arrange my space.
Skeleton Creek by Patrick Carman- An interesting new concept for reluctant readers and mystery-lovers, this middle grade mystery combines online videos with a creepy mystery. I am intrigued!
What are you reading this week?

These books are such a guilty pleasure for me. Girls in ball gowns, dashing young men, and scandalous behavior- all in 1899. Nineteenth century time is the epitomy of romance and intrigue, and Godbersen does a great job of including the names of various Manhattan families like the Vanderbilts and the Astors. I was especially excited to see a mention of the resort town of Lakewood, NJ as I went to college there!
Fans of The Luxe will not be disappointed by Rumors: A Luxe Novel (The Luxe). The drama is in full force and all of our favorite characters are back. Readers will be swept into the parlors and ballrooms of Gramercy Park, NYC, where gossip is currency and money isn’t all one needs to attain a place in high society. I am already awaiting the next book after this ending. What a cliffhanger!!
My only disappointment is that Rumors: A Luxe Novel (The Luxe) is a bot shorter than the first novel. I wanted the story to continue!!
