Mythological Mondays (4)


Mythological Mondays is a weekly meme hosted by http://www.abackwardsstory.blogspot.com/. It is used to highlight all things myth related.


I thought rather long and hard about something myth related to post on this week. I didn't want to repost a review or highlight an already over played book. So, I went to my bookshelf, pulled out a book, and started reading covers to see which ones had mythology undertones. This is what I found:

Fury


This book will hit the shelves in August (2011), but it's already receiving a lot of attention in the blogosphere. Rightfully so. Doesn't the cover look amazing? LOVE all that red hair. Not sure what this book is about? Check out the synopsis:

Wondering where the mythology element is? Me too! Ok, I THINK those three girls mentioned that choose who will face the consequences for their actions... I think they are supposed to be something like the Fates. Call me crazy, but I think that's where things are headed with this one. Luckily, I have an ARC sitting on my shelf so I can actually read and find out before August!
Okay, kiddos. That's all I got for this week. If you read this one before me, let me know if my assumptions were accurate!


It’s winter break in Ascension, Maine. The snow is falling and everything looks pristine and peaceful. But not all is as it seems...


Between cozy traditions and parties with her friends, Emily loves the holidays. And this year’s even better--the guy she’s been into for months is finally noticing her. But Em knows if she starts things with him, there’s no turning back. Because his girlfriend is Em’s best friend.

On the other side of town, Chase is having problems of his own. The stress of his home life is starting to take its toll, and his social life is unraveling. But that’s nothing compared to what’s really haunting him. Chase has done something cruel...something the perfect guy he pretends to be would never do. And it’s only a matter of time before he’s exposed.

In Ascension, mistakes can be deadly. And three girls—three beautiful, mysterious girls—are here to choose who will pay.

Em and Chase have been chosen.

  1. You know, when I heard about this one, I thought those three girls were the Fates, too! First thing that popped into my head. I ran and added it to Goodreads that day. Will watch out for more info from you on it (esp. on whether or not it's any good).

    I've done that before, too! Eyed up my bookshelf looking for something to meme. Go us! :)

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…
