We love s’mores- ooey, gooey, sugary goodness! And, Autumn is the time these delights usually show in stores. This fall we’ve paired delicious s’mores (the perfect autumn treat!) with books that we love. If you have followed the Princessreadsalot Presents recommendations, you’ll know we like to include a variety of books for teens. The listContinue reading “Read S’more: Princessreadsalot Presents!”
I love summer, and as a teacher, summer has been my time to revive my creativity, read what I want, and enjoy the outdoors. At the moment, we’re in the middle of a heatwave, and we’ve spent the last three days sitting in the middle of our freezing cold splash pad and eating popsicles. IContinue reading “Books to Read Based on Your Summer Drink Order: Princessreadsalot Presents!”
Did you know that International Sherlock Holmes Day is May 22nd (Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Birthday)? Sherlock is my favorite detective, Watson is one my favorite sidekicks, and Moriarty will forever be my favorite villain, so today I am going to celebrate with some fun Sherlock Holmes adaptations and food inspired by the books. CheckContinue reading “Share a Meal with Sherlock: Princessreadsalot Presents!”
When I started writing these book and drink recommendations, it was Fall of 2020. Fall drinks and spooky books are pretty easy to match up. And winter books with an array of holiday drinks weren’t too hard either. Spring, on the other hand, wasn’t quite so clear. Not everyone has a spring PSL, and if books mention spring, it’s usually glossed over. WIth that being said, I have taken some creative liberties with this post. I’ve decided that high school graduation and prom are two spring events (which you’ll see below). Books that cover the course of a year without much mention to the season are also included. And, there are few books that remind me of a blooming spring. With the creative liberties that we’ve taken, this might be our best post. We hope you agree!
Did you make a 2021 reading goal? Do you have a plan for completing it? I like to start my year with short books to give myself a head start. January in Minnesota means lots of snow and coldness, and a nice bowl of soup is a regular (almost daily) meal. So I have combinedContinue reading “Stories to Read While Your Soup Simmers: Princessreadsalot Presents!”
Winters in Minnesota start with dark afternoons and freezing cold temperatures and then lead us into feet of snow dropping. Black Friday is usually freezing cold and occasionally dangerous for the folks waiting outside. And, that cute New Year’s Eve outfit usually needs a few extra layers before we head out to celebrate! So, tuck yourselves into your flannel blankets, pick up a steaming or caffeinated drink, and settle in with a sweet story. These books are sure to warm your heart!
What does fall mean to you? The beginning of a new school year? Mystery thrillers? Ghosts, witches, and zombies? Pumpkins? I love fall, coffee, and mystery thrillers – making this blog my favorite thing to discuss. Along with Vanessa (@nessas.lair), I made (and drank!) these fun beverages; if you want to know how to make them, check out Vanessa’s blog: https://nessaslair.com/ So, maybe I have some expertise based on the numerous drinks and mysteries I have consumed?
I’m a sucker for a good ADULT rom-com.
This list however, is NOT adult. As a middle school English teacher, I frequently have students who want cool adult looking covers and resort to what their parents are reading. For that reason, I like to have extra copies of these
books and is a list that I recommend to all 6th through 8th grade students asking for a romance or rom-com!
I work hard to find books that meet the interests of my 7th and 8th grade students. This spring I participated in Y’All Stay At Home an online (because of the pandemic) book festival. After hearing authors pitch their books, I pre-ordered a couple. As a teacher who has to pinch every penny, I amContinue reading “5 Teen Books I Have Preordered for Fall 2020: Princessreadsalot Presents!”
