This review is pending. I have tried to read this book for TWO WEEKS but I can't seem to get passed page 58! I could not get in to this book. I tried. I really did.

I think what was holding me up is the excessive fluff talk in this book. I'm all for plot development, but please don't spend 40 pages talking about the same thing! I think I literally spent 40 pages reading various characters asking Toby (the young werewolf) if he remembers how he ended up naked in a dingo pen. Of course, Toby can't remember. Even I picked up on that after 20 pages! Ugh.

I think I've reached a part that might lead to something interesting, but I'm not willing to try finishing this book just yet. There are too many delicious books out there worth my time. No need to deprive them by drudging through this book any longer.

If anyone has read this book, I would be interested in knowing if it does get any better. Would it be worth trying to read again?

  2. I was really disappointed by this book. I kept hearing how funny it was. I didn't see the humor. The 13 year old kid was annoying in my opinion.
    I feel bad for giving one of my students a hard time about not finishing the copy I gave him. I had to apologize today, since I couldn't even finish the book!

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)

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.

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.
