I got my second COVID shot on Wednesday, and I was feeling all:
But then on Thursday I felt pretty blah from the shot (nothing extreme or unexpected) and arguably did not feel very invincible. But one day of discomfort is better than the alternative, and hopefully I’ll be able to try licking wild animals or eating pizza off the ground very soon.
Who needs some teen books suggestions?? Uh, only ME all the time. The kids are like me, in that they’re never satisfied with all the books we have in our library. They need new and exciting books on the regular. So I was very excited when Leslea Wahl reached out from CatholicTeenBooks.com to share Treasures: Visible and Invisible a new compilation of eight St. Patrick’s inspired stories from some of the website’s authors.
It’s a great introduction to multiple authors and their writing styles and includes a mix of historical, contemporary, and dystopian fiction. Find one story you really like, and explore that author’s other titles on the website. There’s so many great books, and if you’re not sure what your kids might like, they have themed book packs. Plus there’s book clubs and audiobooks– pretty much anything for all the older kids in your house who will otherwise just sit around and read manga or comics. Addie is a fan of Corinna Turner’s I Am Margaret, and was pleased to see a selection from her in Treasures.
If you have some teens looking for some good reads, leave a comment below saying “I NEED BOOKS FOR MY TEENS!” and I’ll select a random winner to get a free copy of Treasures. (Open to continental US readers only-sorry!) Now closed!
Short post this week so I can make up on missed sleep! You can fill in the gaps by sharing some of your favorite teen reads in the comments below, or in your own post which you can link up below! (More of my favorite book recommendations here.) Be sure to include a link back to this post so your readers can find the rest of the Quick Takes. I look forward to reading your posts!
