In two words… Wiped Out. I had a FANTASTIC weekend hanging out with good friends at the cabin and we ran around and biked and explored Minnesota and I have massive tan lines and now, home, unpacked, laundry done, dinner cooked, dogs walked…. I am wiped out. Again. AND I am not complaining…. I love the amazing people in my life.
This past week in books was nothing impressive. I am reading and I did read… and I am still reading, just not as much or as quickly as I would like to. Here is what I posted this past week:
Along For The Ride by Sarah Dessen (Camryn’s YA Review)
Objects Of My Affection by Jim Smolinski (Can anyone say “hoarder?”)
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn – seriously the go to book of the month – perhaps, the year!
AND, if you have read Gone Girl, talk to me about it on this Spoiler Page – open discussion on the book!
Yeah…. that’s it. I am still (STILL) reading Yes! Chef, and listening to a couple audios that I think will finish soon so here is what I think is up next:
Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs back into his life – dressed like a ninja and summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge – he follows.
After their all-nighter ends and a new day breaks, Q arrives at school to discover that Margo, always an enigma, has now become a mystery. But Q soon learns that there are clues – and they’re for him. Urged down a disconnected path, the closer he gets, the less Q sees of the girl he thought he knew.
Flying through this one on audio right now!
Marcia Brady, eldest daughter on television’s The Brady Bunch, had it all. But what viewers didn’t know about the always sunny, perfect Marcia was that off-screen, her real-life counterpart, Maureen McCormick, was living a very different – and not-so-wonderful – life. Maureen tells the shocking and inspirational true story of the beloved teen and the woman she became.
Maureen takes us behind-the-scenes of America’s favorite television family. But the real story begins after The Brady Bunch ended. Maureen found herself tangled in a fast-paced, drug-fueled Hollywood existence that ultimately lead to the biggest battle of her life.
There is no question: Maureen McCormick is a survivor. Here’s the Story is the empowering, engaging, shocking, and emotional tale of Maureen McCormick’s courageous struggle over adversity and her lifelong battle to come to terms with the idea of perfection – and herself.
It was just another ordinary day at McKinley High—until a massive explosion devastated the school. When loner David Thorpe tried to help his English teacher to safety, the teacher convulsed and died right in front of him. And that was just the beginning.
A year later, McKinley has descended into chaos. All the students are infected with a virus that makes them deadly to adults. The school is under military quarantine. The teachers are gone. Violent gangs have formed based on high school social cliques. Without a gang, you’re as good as dead. And David has no gang. It’s just him and his little brother, Will, against the whole school.
In this frighteningly dark and captivating novel, Lex Thomas locks readers inside a school where kids don’t fight to be popular, they fight to stay alive.
Keira Johnson, a 50-year-old mother of two grown sons, believes she lives a good Christian life without secrets– until she discovers a life-jarring fact her late mother kept hidden all her life. Kiera was born out of wedlock, and the man she had always known as her father had adopted her as an infant.
Meanwhile, Keira’s beloved 17-year-old niece, Kirsten, has just discovered an unwanted pregnancy. Her boyfriend, Jose, is bound for college and Kirsten does not know what to do. As the family comes together for a reunion, Keira and Kirsten struggle with their fractured pasts and jumbled present. Will truth and honesty be the catalysts that allow the entire family to find peace?
That is probably more than enough for the week. I have a 150 mile bike ride next weekend that will keep me busy and this week has a couple little challenges but nothing major
