Blog Hop and Follow Friday (7)

Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by crazy-for-books. This week's question comes from Somer who blogs at A Bird's Eye Review:
"Do you read only one book at a time, or do you have several going at once?"

Although I have intentions of reading multiple books at once, I usually only read one book at a time. I feel like I'm cheating my book out of something if I share my reading time with another book. If I have to read a book for work, however, I will most certainly read multiples. My brain needs a break from work related reading.












Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by parajunkee's view. This week's question comes from Jess at Gone With the Words:  

How did you come up with your blog name?

 
This is a super easy question for me to answer. The name implies it all. I read at night with a flashlight.  know, very juvenile.  I don't have to hide under the covers when I stay up passed my bed time anymore, but the flashlight habit never died. I loose all my book lights, or the kids break them. Plus, I could never get the stupid things adjusted just right. Half of my page always ended up in shadows.

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. 

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…

The Winner's Crime ( Marie Rutkoski)

Book two of the dazzling Winner's Trilogy is a fight to the death as Kestrel risks betrayal of country for love.

The engagement of Lady Kestrel to Valoria’s crown prince means one celebration after another. But to Kestrel it means living in a cage of her own making. As the wedding approaches, she aches to tell Arin the truth about her engagement... if she could only trust him. Yet can she even trust herself? For—unknown to Arin—Kestrel is becoming a skilled practitioner of deceit: an anonymous spy passing information to Herran, and close to uncovering a shocking secret.

As Arin enlists dangerous allies in the struggle to keep his country’s freedom, he can’t fight the suspicion that Kestrel knows more than she shows. In the end, it might not be a dagger in the dark that cuts him open, but the truth. And when that happens, Kestrel and Arin learn just how much their crimes will cost them.
