Hush, Hush

I so need to rest of this series before I start reading this. But hooray for finding a copy at BAM for $3.

Found this one in the book room at school: 


How awesome, right? A retelling of Beowulf from the monster's point of view? Fabulous! And the best part... There are like 100 of these in the book room. So if it's as awesome as I think it will be, I can read it with my students! Win!

It's back to school time, so my book networking has lulled. I didn't think anyone would want to see my work related reads, but trust me, there are plenty. More than plenty, really. I will be busy for some time. =)


  1. I need to read the Hush Hush series too! Great deal! Enjoy!

  2. A retelling of Beowulf? Wow! That does sound awesome. Hopefully it is much easier to read. :P


    P.S. Beautiful blog.

  3. Hehe I love Hush, Hush :) Patch <3 Can't believe you got it for $3 at BAM! I have a BAM nearby, but I haven't been to it since I'm sad it replaced the Borders there lol. Hope you enjoy all of these, happy reading!

  4. Oh Hush, Hush. I want to read that book too. I have Crescendo on my shelf. Good luck with all your work and I hope you find lots of time for fun reading.

My 13 reasons why you should avoid Netflix's 13 Reasons Why

If you subscribe to Netflix, you should know about the book to film adaptation of Jay Asher's novel, Thirteen Reasons Why. I remember reading the book years ago on a recommendation, and fell in love with the story. It took me through so many emotions as I read Hannah's story. You can see my thoughts on the novel here, because this post isn't about the novel per se.

This post is about what bothered me about Netflix's attempt at capturing this story. So here goes, my 13 reasons why I shouldn't have watched "Thirteen Reasons Why" on Netflix.

1. The language. My goodness, the language. I understand that teenagers curse worse than sailors in many situations, but if you aren't bothered by the ridiculous use of the f bomb as both an adjective, verb, and general space filler-- there is a problem. I stopped counting in one episode its use because I reached 20 before the half way point. Twenty! I don't think they even bothered to come up with other words. …

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…
