I hadn't heard of that book, though it sounds interesting. I am going to check it out at the book store - I am in need of a good kids book to buy for my sons friend's birthday.. she likes animals.. the picture one said from 0-2 years.. so it's probably to young as she's turning 4 and the other one says from 6-8 yrs. recommended.. Hopefully if they don't seem appropriate then i will see something else that catches my eye.. though either might be perfectly fine!! we shall see..
That would be a hard feeling...I am in the stage of wanting time alone. Funny how that is, I was thinking last mother's day that all my mom wants for mother's day was to spend time with her kids and all I wanted was to have them go out! My husband had it planned to take them to his mom's and asked if I was sure that they could leave me on mother's day.. I was very grateful! Got to spend a wonderful night with my mom!
I doubt I have any Happily Ever After books that you haven't read... but if I think of some I will be sure to suggest! It is exciting that she's college bound though.. I never went and have no idea what it would be like. Lots of hard work I imagine.
I just scanned your newly added books and saw a new Johanna Lindsey! Wow.. that's a nice cover ;) I recently saw the movie "The Lincoln Lawyer" and heard there was a book on it. It was a great movie... I see you read some John Grisham - I think this is kinda along those lines (though haven't read the book) it is by Michael Connelly - I thought it was a Grisham, probably because Matthew McCaughney was in a time to kill and this one.. ok I am totally starting to ramble now..I thought you might enjoy it. Have you read any Lisa Kleypas? I tried her out and thought she's pretty good. Historical Regency's but she's got a good sense of humour. I am still on the hunt for some good highlanders! Alot of the ones I've read lately are Scottish men from the highlands living in Regency England - dressing and acting like Englishmen - well except for there accent.. which lets face it I don't hear unless it's written like that or I REALLY remember to concentrate and try to conjure it up lol! BOO! I say! :) Give me some medievel men in kilts on horseback! ;)
Ok I am off to play my silly addiction on facebook hahaha! Have a great day!
Hi Nicki, Thanks so much for the reccomendation - I read the synopsis and it does sound good! I will check it out soon. I am just waiting for my book (a trilolgy of the sweet valley highs) to come in.. I was invited to a group on here that is going to re-read some of them. Though I didn't read any when I was younger! So we'll see how it goes haha! Things are good here, the weather is getting nicer here which is a welcome change from the cold and rain and my boys are itching to go out a play every chance they get. In the next month or so I am looking to renovate my front gardens! They will look So much nicer when they are done!
What about you? Any big plans?
I really enjoyed "Found" quite a bit and I will definitely read the next 2 books in the series. We just recieved an order of about 800 children's and teen books (thanks to Mr. White and another generous donation) so I have seen a lot of great books lately and have read a few (quite a few added to my TBR also!). I just finished "Accomplice" by Eireann Corrigan and if your teen group does not have a lot of young teens in it that might be a good one for them. I can see where there would be a great opportunity for discussions of ethics, morals, guilty consciences, etc. The reasons for what the 2 girls did is rather silly but the story is great. I'll let you know when I read others that I enjoy.
Everything over here is just fine. Bernie is still doing well but being closely monitored to make sure that darn pancreas doesn't cause more problems though he will have to live with chronic pancreatitis. Jessica is getting married in April so that means we will be making a trip to DC. Austin is 4 now and attending school where Becky teaches (basically a school/day care for employess of the NSISD). And I'm still fat, dumb and happy!
Things here have been busy also, haven't even had a chance to read much :( but that will change shortly, I will get a few more moments that I am able to read which is good cause I got some books for Christmas! I am looking forward to spring (yes I know I still have some months to go) but it will be nice to have a bit warmer weather :) Hope you get some time to steal for yourself to read something good!
Hi Nicki! Everything is going well here. So far so good with all of Bernie's tests - one more to go in November.
How does your week look the week of the 18th? I am going to try to come see you and your library if one of those days is good for you. Just let me know.
Hey, just browsing and I saw your bookshelf. Saw you have some Fablehaven there. I grew up with Brandon Mull; he actually helped me with a book of mine called Billy: Messenger of Powers, so it was nice to be able to read and enjoy his work so much! Anywho, cool shelf, thanks for letting me nose around!
