Book of the Week: Salt to the Sea

So here’s what I’m thinking this week:

    • I’ve got a backlog of Book of the Week videos to vlog about, and Salt to the Sea was not my scheduled book for today…but once I finished it, I knew I needed to talk about it ASAP, so here we are.
    • We experienced a power outage at school this week, thanks to some strong weather in the area. With wifi down, we librarians had no choice but to find a spot of sunlight and do what we do best – read. By the end of the day, I was over halfway through Salt to the Sea and fully hooked. I had to leave at a VERY suspenseful part of the plot, and I’m not exaggerating when I tell you that I thought about this book until I could get back to it the next day. I think you’ll be just as hooked if you pick this one up to read.
    • It felt good to record another video! I’ve been seeing the 25 Bookish Facts About Me videos going around, and I think I’ll probably record my own soon. I’ve really enjoyed the ones I’ve watched, and the “quiz” format reminds me of the AIM profile I spent so much time curating when I was in middle school. If you’ve written or vlogged your own 25 facts, leave me a link!
    • I was heartbroken to hear about Harper Lee’s passing last week. To Kill a Mockingbird is my all-time favorite book, and I think the wisdom left to us by Harper during her time here is a beautiful legacy. In her honor, I added a new quote to my office windows.
Harper Lee window quote
“The book to read is not the one that thinks for you, but the one which makes you think.”

That’s all for this week. The plan is to be back next week with another video. If you’re interested in seeing what I’ve been reading, you can always check out my Goodreads page. As always, thanks for reading!
