A brand new year is upon us my friends. And what better way to kick off the first week of 2019 than to look at some fantastic blog posts!

I hope all of you see great success in 2019!

My Favourite Book Review This Week…
Book Review: The Twisted Tree – Chrikaru Reads
The structure of this book review is what made it so interesting for me. Not only does Chrikaru offer their own opinions about the book – discussing her first impressions, what she liked about it, what she didn’t etc. – but she also discusses how this book can be used within a classroom. Better still, she recommends other book blogger reviews, so that anyone can get a well-rounded opinion before deciding to read. Thoughtful, succinct, and very well written, this is a great review to kick off the New Year.
