I feel fortunate that headaches seem to come and go quickly for me, so I’m hoping this one is the same!
Breakfast this morning was warm and comforting. Perfect for a headachy girl!
I made a batch of my almond butter pancakes topped with a bit of maple syrup.
Nice and filling!

- The Mirrors at Barnard Hall by Jenny Hickman
The mirrors at Barnard Hall show reflections of the present… and visions of the past. Callista Franklyn’s return to her family’s mansion in the English countryside stirs up more than old memories of imaginary childhood friends. Callista finds the very real, and very handsome, Nick Dalton in the reflection of her antique mirror.
Historical records say Nick died in 1902, but Nick is convinced otherwise. Callista is intrigued by Nick’s claim that the year is 1902, so she investigates and uncovers a timeline of suspicious crimes and enchanted mirrors that link her to the twentieth century.
She also discovers that she’s falling for Nick, who is condemned to be murdered in August. As the date of Nick’s impending death approaches, Callista must decide if she is willing to risk changing history and erasing her place in the modern world in order to prevent the tragic crime and save the man she loves.
- 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher
Clay Jensen returns home from school to find a strange package with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside he discovers several cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker – his classmate and crush – who committed suicide two weeks earlier. Hannah’s voice tells him that there are thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. Clay is one of them. If he listens, he’ll find out why. Clay spends the night crisscrossing his town with Hannah as his guide. He becomes a firsthand witness to Hannah’s pain, and learns the truth about himself-a truth he never wanted to face.
- Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
I have a curse.
I have a gift.
I’m a monster.
I’m more than human.
My touch is lethal.
My touch is power.
I am their weapon.
I will fight back.
No one knows why Juliette’s touch is fatal, but The Reestablishment has plans for her. Plans to use her as a weapon. But Juliette has plans of her own. After a lifetime without freedom, she’s finally discovering a strength to fight back for the very first time—and to find a future with the one boy she thought she’d lost forever.
