I love all the seasons, but I especially love spring. I love the new green grass, trees that are budding and flowers! Something else I love about spring is that it is a start over. When spring is here, I am ready to clean out and begin again!
I also love to read new books! We just received 4 boxes of new books and are working on them so that you can check them out! Stop by soon and see what we have. I think you will enjoy them!
Have you read any good books lately! I have just finished reading some good ones. Hotel Ruby by Suzanne Young, Elena Vanishing by Elena Dunkle and I just started Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys. Click on these titles to learn more about these books!All of these books have been great but all of the totally different. But they do have one thing in common. They were all written for Young Adults- That’s YOU!
I have discovered a great way to record what I am reading and share with other friends is by sharing the books I have read, or want to read on Goodreads. I have just set up a book club for Franklin County Students. Check it out at Good Reads! I think you will enjoy it.
Happy Reading! Mrs. Hawkins
