Shiver by Maggie stiefvater- Werewolf story – slowish start but more and more interesting towards the end. I belive the next one in the series focuses of different characters.
Lockdown by Alexander Gordon Smith – teen prison story – compelling read but I am not sure if I liked it
Ghost and the goth Stacy Kade A cheerleader becomes a ghost and it looks like she has a reason to stick around … silly, but fun.
Spray by Harry edge ( really can you believe the name ) and elaboration of the game Assassins, a pretty good excuse for putting mysterious characters together
4 for august … Is there time for one more?
This was written by a friend – It looks like her 7 year old chevy is going to be junked, because they no longer make the gas pedal – that is used on a number of
chevy cars. she had been thinking Camero – now she is thinking mustang…
That is where I am now. Last weekend of big walks until THE WALK. I feel like I can do it now ( but no I’m not packed yet ), and I am mentally prepared. It is sort of constantly hovering in my mind. I’m making list in my brain and checking things off. making decisions. Planning all my next steps, so on the day of the walk ( which starts at an hour when I can’t even see yet ) I just have to walk . ( or as al the promo and safety videos say ‘walk and pee’ ) .
My sister K found this – and I like it a lot
Here are two important lines:
As a rule of thumb, your clothing (with the exception of your jacket, sneakers, fanny pack, sleeping bag and air mattress/pad) should fit into a paper grocery bag (just to measure). If you’ve got more than that, you may be bringing too much.
You will not lose weight during your Walk. I realize that this is not what you were hoping to hear, but I thought I’d mention it anyway.
I haven’t exactly been mainlineing this show – but pretty close. I watched the premiree – it looked fun , but never go around to watching more. last night I finished season 1 and started season 2. Basic impressions:
1) the adults act like teenagers. the most annoying aspect of the show
2) season 1 got bettter.
3) the best thing they did for Sue was giver her a softer side – it made her mean more fun.
4) this is the earwormiest show ever. Sorry, Journey is not my favorite.
5) It is very powerful when Raw emotions are expressed in song on this show. I’m not sure why it works so well, but it really does.
All in all ,Im enjoying the Show. It isn’t on th elevel of BTVS or Firefly. But it is entertaining and I don’t tend to poke at the computer when I am watching it – rare these days.
Only two to add
I reread The Corinthian by Grogette heyer – I just really needed a comfort read , something that I could pick up for 5 minutes and not care how far I got
and I am Almost finished with Deadline , which is the follow up to Feed by Mira Grant. great – I wasn’t sure I was going to like it as much as Feed, but I am – the big problem , It is no fun to read it in short chunks.
So 4 books in July plus 50 for the rest of the year.
