Not So New News (But New to Me)

I read Carrie Ryan's series a while ago, and always felt like I was missing some of the story. It really bothers me when I feel like there are unanswered questions in a book. I trudged through all three books hoping to find my answers, but they never came. Then I came across this today:


"RANDOM HOUSE PUBLISHES EBOOK ORIGINAL FROM BESTSELLING AUTHOR CARRIE RYAN


(April 5, 2011, New York, NY)—Random House Children’s Books (RandomHouse.com/teens) announces the publication of an exclusive ebook original written by acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Carrie Ryan, entitled HARE MOON: An Original Forest of Hands and Teeth Story (Delacorte Press Books for Young Readers / $1.99), on sale today. The story is available exclusively in digital format and continues the setting of the Forest of Hands and Teeth series. Fans will clamor for this new addition to the three-book series, which concluded in March 2011 with The Dark and Hollow Places. Also included in the series are The Forest of Hands and Teeth (2009) and The Dead-Tossed Waves (2010).

HARE MOON: An Original Forest of Hands and Teeth Story is set in the barricaded village of The Forest of Hands and Teeth, but takes place years before the novel began. Tabitha, an adult character in the first book, is a teenager who dreams for there to be more to her world. This desire pushes her to sneak past her village gates and into the Forest of Hands and Teeth where the undead reach for her from beyond the fence. And where she meets Patrick, who proves there is life beyond her village. HARE MOON answers questions about how Tabitha the teenager became Sister Tabitha of The Forest of Hands and Teeth. Readers will live through the gruesome moment when she realizes just how much she’ll have to give up to live and love among the Unconsecrated."
Finally! Maybe some of my questions will be answered! I want to know why/how the Return occured. Who was the first person infected by it? Sister Tabitha was one of those characters you love to hate, so I'm interested to see the humane side of her. Was there one?

I know that most people have probably already heard about this, but for those that live in a cave like myself, this is new news. Hope you enjoy.

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

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…
