Quantum Waves/vviirruuss: I never forget by Jazalyn
I am going to be very honest here; I avoid reviewing poetry. It’s not that I don’t like it (I am a huge Emily Dickinson fan); it’s just that I have a hard time putting my thought to words. To me, reading poetry is something personal. What a poem might mean to one person might not mean the same thing to another. That is excellent about poetry, but it also makes it so hard to review. So, this review is going to be very short.
vViIrRuUsS was an exciting book for me to read, and it did hit a nerve since we are still, technically, in the middle of a pandemic. The poetry’s range (from anger to love) was terrific.
I am curious to see how her other works are. Like I said above, I usually don’t review poetry, but this book was fresh and innovative. It was fast-paced and well written. I can’t wait to see how her other works are!!!
I would recommend vViIrRuUsS to anyone over 13. Other than language, it is a clean book.
What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? What do you think you’ll read next?
After a week of no school (but they did have virtual learning Thursday and Friday), my kids went back to school on Monday. I can’t tell you how excited I was for them to go back…lol. I love them but they were getting on each other’s nerves and mine.
We’re slated to get hit with another snowstorm on Saturday. Like I mentioned last week, any snow that we get, the city shuts down. My prediction….no school Monday and maybe a 2-3 hour delay on Tuesday. Of course, Miss R is thrilled. She loves snow and days off from school.
I don’t know if I mentioned it but Miss B got on her JROTC air rifle team. She got the email the week of January 10th and she is so excited!! She is also doing JROTC events and going up in rank.
I have nothing really to say about Mr. Z. He’s my low-key, no-maintenance kid. He has discovered a love for zombie books. We had gotten him books 1-3 of The Extinction Cycle series by Nicholas Sansbury Smith for Christmas and he devoured them. BK ordered books 4-6 around New Year and Mr. Z finished them. He’s asking for other books in that genre.
As I mentioned above, Miss R is loving the snow. She has spent hours outside, playing in it. I am liking it because she’s outside and not sitting around with her face glued to a screen. In other news (with her), I got her 3-week progress report for Quarter 3 (they get two progress reports a quarter). Her reading level blew me away. She went from an 80L (Lexile Range)-230L to a 665L-815L. Depending on the site, that puts her at a middle/late 3rd grade/early 4th-grade reading level. I am very proud of her!!
I barely did any reading last week. I was very stressed out (with the kids being virtual). That also led to me developing my first ocular migraine. That lasted for a little over 4 days (Weds, Thurs,Fri, and Saturday) and I am still not feeling 100%. I am also behind on my indie author reviews. Thankfully, they are understanding (stupid migraine)
Review-wise, I am still behind. Because of my migraine, I wasn’t able to write anything (it hurt tolook at the screen). I am hoping to catch up with Random House/SMP reviews by Friday and to have the indie author reviews written by Sunday. I hate being behind!!
BK and I started watching Foundation on Apple Plus but we stopped after the first episode. It was because of my migraine and not feeling well. We also started watching Ted Lasso.
I made the unstuffed shells yesterday. It was a pretty easy dish to make and the kids loved it. Next week, I am making Chile Lime pulled pork. I am not holding my breath with them liking it (they are all very picky) but miracles have happened.
So, that the catch up with me. As always, let me know if you have read any of these books and what you have thought about them. Just a warning, it will basically be the same as last week.
Welcome to Stocking the Shelves. Every Saturday, I will be posting what books I got this week. Stocking the Shelves is hosted byReading Reality. So, here is my list. Let me know if you have read any of these and what you thought!!
