recap: #septemberstories

I really enjoyed participating in the #septemberstories Instagram challenge hosted by librarians Val (sunlightstringer) and Wikk (wkr1990).  I was able to share some of my personal favorites and add to my already-long to-be-read list!  Since I teach middle school, most of my choices are YA, but I threw in some classics, children's books, and adult lit as well.

Here are my choices from the end of the month:

Romantic:  Emma by Jane Austen  || Fantasy:  Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

Thriller/Crime:  The Millenium series by Stieg Larsson 
Makes Me Laugh:  The Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing by Melissa Bank

Makes Me Cry:  The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
Favorite Short Story:  "A&P" by John Updike

Old: "The Charge of the Light Brigade" by Alfred, Lord Tennyson || Children's Book: Olivia Goes to Venice

Best Title:  So You Want to Be a Wizard by Diane Duane
Made Into a Movie:  the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare

Read Over and Over:  The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton
Book I Could Live In:  I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith

Book About My Home Area:  The Wettest County in the World by Matt Bondurant (inspiration for the movie Lawless)
Book I Can Quote:  The Waste Land and Other Poems by T.S. Eliot

Character I Am Most Like:  Hermione Granger!
Shortest Book I've Read:  Good Grief by Granger E. Westberg

What I'm Reading Next:  The Maze Runner by James Dashner || Best Ending:  the Harry Potter series

  1. This was such a fun little challenge! I always love those 30 day photo challenges, but this is probably my favorite one that I've seen.
