Let It Snow 
by John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle



When you see the names John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle all together on a book, you pick it up and read it.  Shoot, just one of their names alone ALWAYS leads me to pick up and read whatever book it is.  They are some of the biggest and best names in YA...and for good reason.  Their stories are amazing.

So, when I found this book last year I knew I HAD to read it.  Christmas stories by some of my most favorite authors?  Yes, please!

The 3 stories did not disappoint at all.  There's laughter, romance, great characters, and of course, delightfully happy Christmas endings.  The best part for me was the interconnected story lines and characters.  Quite clever!

Let It Snow is exactly the type of book you want to curl up with under a warm blanket by a fire with a warm drink during Christmas break.  Seriously.  Take a little bit of time to relax and enjoy these magical Christmas stories this December.      

Pick up a copy at your independent bookstore or at your local library.

Enjoy and have a wonderful Christmas!


Info from GoodReads
Sparkling white snowdrifts, beautiful presents wrapped in ribbons, and multicolored lights glittering in the night through the falling snow. A Christmas Eve snowstorm transforms one small town into a romantic haven, the kind you see only in movies. Well, kinda. After all, a cold and wet hike from a stranded train through the middle of nowhere would not normally end with a delicious kiss from a charming stranger. And no one would think that a trip to the Waffle House through four feet of snow would lead to love with an old friend. Or that the way back to true love begins with a painfully early morning shift at Starbucks. Thanks to three of today’s bestselling teen authors—John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle—the magic of the holidays shines on these hilarious and charming interconnected tales of love, romance, and breathtaking kisses.

Ch-ch-ch-ch- changes...

This space looks a little different.  The url has changed (no more thelibraryfanatic.com) & the title is yet to be determined... (If you have any great suggestions, please let me know!)
I've found myself singing this Bowie song quite a bit: "Ch-ch-ch-ch-Changes  Ch-ch-Changes (Turn and face the strange)..."

While I didn't go back in time to make it happen, there has been a BIG change in my life.

I recently accepted a new job with Five Star Technology Solutions as an Associate Director of Innovative Learning for Northwest Indiana.   With a mission of "creating awesome learning experiences for kids", how could I NOT want to be a part of this fabulous company?


Monday marked the beginning of my fourth week in this new position.  It also marked the beginning of the 2016-2017 school year for my children.  Taking them to school and even going into my former building where I had worked and practically lived the previous eight years was the true test.  Would I be sad …

1-2-3 Wonder

Collaborating is one of the aspects of teaching that I most enjoy.  As a school librarian, I have the unique opportunity to collaborate, teach, and work with many different teachers and students in my school building, grades K-12.  This school year, one of my professional goals is to collaborate outside of my school and even outside of Indiana. 

When David Etkin mentioned on Twitter that he had an idea for a Wonder extension lesson, I immediately said "I'm in!"  We talked it out a bit and decided to recruit a few more people to the collaborating party from the #WONDERschools initiative.  Davidforced  persuaded Reilly into participating in this project with her 5th grade students.  

We worked together in Google Docs on the lesson idea, questions, and discussed how to best implement this in our classrooms.   Then we decided how to combine and showcase what was done in each of our classes. The cool part of this collaboration was that we used several methods of communication: …

The Curse of the Were-Hyena

Book mail is (obviously) some of my most favorite mail to receive.  When this book arrived, I immediately opened the package to find this super fun book.  I put it on my TBR shelf, promising myself I'd get to it soon but I needed to continue to concentrate on finishing up my YA reads for the Eliot Rosewater committee (our state YA list).  
A few days later my son and I realized we needed a book to read together.  We'd just finished one and had neglected to pick out a new one.  Mom to the rescue!  I grabbed The Curse of the Were-Hyena and began reading it to him as our nighttime story.  After only a couple of pages, we were both hooked.  Many giggles and gasps as we fell head first into the engaging story.  The next morning he asked if he could take it to school to read.  That's when I knew he was REALLY hooked!  That afternoon/evening, I had to read to catch up with what he'd already read so we could continue to read together at bedtime.  This proved to be a lot of fun …
