The Lost Girl read-along: Week 7 (finale)

This week we are finishing The Lost Girl. That's chapters 8-12 of part 3 in The Lost Girl. If you missed out on last week's discussion, you can view it through the links below.


As you read this week, think about this question: Given the opportunity, would you have the Loom stitch an echo of a loved one? Why or why not?
I would also like to know what you thought of The Lost Girl. Want to read another dystopian for the next read-along? 


For week 7, we will be finishing The Lost Girl. I will post the discussion questions next Sunday, so check back then to post! Remember, you get 2 entries in the giveaway for every comment you leave on the blog, plus an additional 1 entry for posting on the Facebook page (LINK HERE). So don't be shy! It doesn't matter when you post either, just as long as it's before we finish the book.

Happy reading!

  1. Although it would be tempting to be able to never lose someone I loved, I would not create an echo. there are too many variables, and the echo would never really be that same person. Part of life is dealing with loss and grief, rather than hiding from it.

    I absolutely LOVED this book! I rarely cry while reading, but I just couldn't seem to help myself. It was sad, hopeful, and beautifully written. I will link up my review as soon as I have it written.

    I am looking forward to seeing what others thought of this read, as well as what the next read along pick is.

  2. I can't wait to read your review! I had to sit down and write right away when I finished, but it was so hard to find words to do this book justice. That ending! I really hope there is another book in the future.

    I'll give you a hint for the next read-along: I'm leaning towards "Shatter Me" by T. Mafi. :) But Orleans was awesome, so I'm really tempted to cover that one.

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…
