Be Gentle with Yourself, Librarian

Here is a picture of me doing storytime. Because it's funny.


It's okay if you're behind on your GoodReads goal (I am).

It's okay if you're behind on your RunKeeper goal (I am).

It's okay if you don't finish your Overdrive audiobook before it is automatically returned. You can check it out again and keep going (or move on to something else).

It's okay if your blogging has slowed down to a trickle. You will pick it back up when you want to.

It's okay if you didn't follow your meal plan every day this week. Everyone survived.

It's okay that you woke up at 6am, mind racing, because then you did some yoga to try to reduce that anxiety.

It's okay that you cried with frustration at part of your day on Wednesday because the next day was a new day and it was a better one.

Summer is coming. Be gentle with yourself, librarian.

#middlegrademay

In looking at my reading choices over the past couple of months, I have realized that I have GOT to add some more middle grade books into my reading diet! I've been reading lots of adult and teen books, which have been great, but I need to give myself a little push to pick up more middle grade and keep things balanced.

Here are a few of the books on my middle grade TBR stack!


So, who will join me for #MiddleGradeMay? 

Just read middle grade books during the month of May and post about them with the hashtag #middlegrademay. Do this anywhere you normally post (Twitter, Litsy, Instagram, whatever floats your boat!) and then check out the hashtag to find some more great middle grade suggestions!

It's worth mentioning that when I say "middle grade" I mean books that are aimed at kids in approximately 3rd-8th grade. At least that's what I'm concentrating on reading more of this month. What you choose to read is up to you!

Let's help motivate each other to pick up middle grade books this month! 

What middle grade books have YOU read and loved lately?? I will take all the suggestions I can get!
