Mid-book Review: Jane Jones: Worst Vapire Ever

Last night on Twitter I promised something new and exciting on the blog today. I thought it was revolutionary last night, but today I realize it's just clever. Sleep and coffee do wonders for your thinking. I usually have my students write mid-book reviews as part of their weekly reading activities. It's a lot of fun to watch how their opinions of the book will change as they read. So, I thought I would use my same activity for some of the books I read.

My first mid-book review is for this great little number called Jane Jones: Worst Vampire Ever. This book is delightful. I'm really enjoying it so far. The MC is clever and extremely self-conscious for a 90 year old vampire. Obviously, I can't tell you much about this one yet, but I can promise there is a lot going on. First off, Jane isn't happy being a vampire because she's allergic to blood. That really sucks for a vampire (no pun intended). When she finds an article by a doctor claiming to have a cure for vampirism, it's huge. Enter lonely vampire heart throb Timothy, and plot numero uno in the book begins.

But wait, there's more! A human boy named Eli seems to have a crush on Jane (and befriends her on Facebook). They're working on a project together that could unearth Jane's tragic past. Oh, and the evil teenage vampire psycho, Astrid, is using this to make Jane's life a living hell. (I'm on a roll with these puns today.) Did I mention the once favorite history teacher turned arch-nemesis? Yeah, she's causing all kinds of trouble too.

 I'm having a lot of fun with this one. It's a quick, light and breezy read. Nothing heavy. Minimal blood sucking, which I like. I'm not big on horror books. I like my monsters to be loveable, which Jane certainly is.

More to come when I finish the book....

Blog Tour: A Perilous Journey of Danger and Mayhem (Christopher Healy)

It is 1883—the Age of Invention! A time when great men like Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, Nicola Tesla, and George Eastman work to turn the country into a mechanical-electrical-industrial marvel: a land of limitless opportunity. And it all happens at the world famous Inventors Guild headquarters in New York City—a place where a great idea, a lot of hard work, and a little bit of luck can find you rubbing elbows with these gods of industry who will usher humanity into the bright promise of the future.
Unless, of course, you’re a woman.
Molly Pepper, daughter of brilliant but unknown inventor Cassandra Pepper, lives with her mother in New York. By day, they make ends meet running a small pickle shop; but by night, they toil and dream of Cassandra shattering the glass ceiling of the Inventors Guild and taking her place among the most famous inventors in America.

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.
