A Reader's Blog Hop (1)

It's 1 o'clock in the morning and I can't sleep. I've been complaining about how tired I have been all week long, but when the opportunity to go to sleep early presents itself, what am I doing? Playing on the internet. It's pitiful, I know. (At least I'm not on Facebook harrassing my friends this time.)

I found a fun site called Crazy for Books and decided to participate in their book blog hop. After all, this site is meant for readers.


In answer to the blog hop's question:  "What are you reading now and why are you reading it?"

I just finished reading Romeo Romeo (can't remember the author) on my Sony ereader. I'm not a huge fan of romance novels, but this one sounded interesting. I was pleasantly surprised that it only had a hint of the romance genre elements that I don't usually enjoy reading. For something classified as romance, it had a really good plot and likable characters. There was even a nice twist at the end. Before the weekend is over I plan to start reading Fallen Angel by Heather Terrell.

  4. I read Les Miserables when I was in high school. I had a weird fascination with Victor Hugo. I think it all started when I saw the Broadway play version.

    Good luck with the reading. The book is HUGE. I don't know if I would be brave enough to pick it up now to read or not.

This week's question: Do you have any furry friends?


These are my fur babies: 

This is what it often looks like while I'm busy working. As you can tell, productivity is high. 


This is Lilly waiting for her boys to come home. She'll spend the entire day just like this if she's not sleeping next to me in my office. 

This is Roscoe. AKA The Boss. He runs the show around here. And yes, he has a sweater AND a coat for cold weather. 

Armchair BEA 2012 Introductions (day 1)

First, let me start off by saying that I am very excited to be participating in Armchair BEA this year. Since this is the first day of the weeklong event, here are my answers to the interview questions:

Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging?
Well, the answer the first part of that question, I am a middle school Language Arts teacher in Florida (and probably one of the only people in a coastal city that hates the beach). I’ve been married to my hubby for 10 years and have 2 boys. My house is a constant zoo and I’m turning 30 in a few months. There is a mid-life crisis in my near future, I’m sure, but I wouldn’t trade any of it for the world.
I started blogging in December of 2011 out of necessity. Seriously. My students know how easily I am distracted when they ask me about books (I eventually caught on to their tactics), so I started blogging out of a need for more teaching time. (I should go ahead and mention that I never talked books all day—even…

Review: The Search for Delicious

The Search for Delicious Natalie Babbitt
Product Details

Reading level: Young Adult
Paperback: 192 pages
Publisher: Square Fish (August 21, 2007)
ISBN-10: 9780312369828
Source: My personal book


Summary from Amazon: Gaylen, the King’s messenger, a skinny boy of twelve, is off to poll the kingdom, traveling from town to farmstead to town on his horse, Marrow. At first it is merely a question of disagreement at the royal castle over which food should stand for Delicious in the new dictionary. But soon it seems that the search for Delicious had better succeed if civil war is to be avoided.


Gaylen’s quest leads him to the woldweller, a wise, 900-year-old creature who lives alone at the precise center of the forest; to Canto, the minstrel who sings him an old song about a mermaid child and who gives him a peculiar good-luck charm; to the underground domain of the dwarfs; and finally to Ardis who might save the kingdom from havoc.

My Review: I love this book! It is such a fun, easy, and enjoyable r…
