“Timing is everything, in education as in many other fields. It’s not enough to teach well. You have to teach well to kids who are ready to learn, kids who are developmentally ‘ripe’ for learning.”

Summer Reading Challenge

LDS Publisher is having a fun summer reading challenge. The main gist of the challenge is to read and review fiction by LDS authors. Since most of the books I read are LDS fiction, this sounded like a lot of fun to me! I'm supposed to give a list of which books I plan to read, this is kind of hard because I usually just read whatever I can find at the library. :) These are the books I have recently put on hold though, so hopefully I will be able to read them this summer:

The Icing on the Cake by Elodia Strain - read my review
Previously Engaged by Elodia Strain
Makeover by Shannon Guymon
How to Stuff a Wild Zucchini by Heather Horrocks
Poisioned Pedigree by G.G. Vandagriff
Lemon Tart by Josi S. Kilpack
Her Good Name by Josi S. Kilpack
To Have or to Hold by Josi S. Kilpack
The Actor and the Housewife by Shannon Hale
Austenland by Shannon Hale

So those are the books that I am definitely planning to read, as long as my turn comes up on the hold list. :) If I read any other books that I find at the library, I'll add them to the list as well. Feel free to join in the challenge, you can get the details about it here. Happy Reading!
