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.

  3. Welcome to the hop and thanks for stopping by. Sorry you didn't like I Capture the Castle :( I saw Les Miserables on your bookshelf and I don't know if you've read it or are about to, but I have it on my 2011 TBR pile. I a little nervous... Have a great week!

  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 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. 

Book Blitz: Visions by Lisa Amowitz

Vision by Lisa Amowitz Release Date: 09/09/14 Spencer Hill Press
Summary from Goodreads: The light is darker than you think…

High school student Bobby Pendell already has his hands full—he works almost every night to support his disabled-vet father and gifted little brother. Then he meets the beautiful new girl in town, who just happens to be his boss’s daughter. Bobby has rules about that kind of thing. Nothing matters more than keeping his job.

When Bobby starts to get blinding migraines that come with scary, violent hallucinations, his livelihood is on the line. Soon, he must face the stunning possibility that the visions of murder are actually real. With his world going dark, Bobby is set on the trail of the serial killer terrorizing his small town. With everyone else convinced he’s the prime suspect, Bobby realizes that he, or the girl he loves, might be killer's next victim.

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…
