Top 5 vacation spots for mermaids: A Spalsh into Summer event kickoff

Splash into Summer
 
 
I love the summer for many reasons, and the Splash into Summer event ranks very high on that list! I am super excited to be a part of this event for the third year. Splash into Summer is hosted by Bonnie at A Backwards Story and Angel at A Mermaid Vision Books.  
 
 
Angel is highlighting mermaids in Asia today on her blog. Yours truly is guest posting at A Backwards Story today. Since summer time is all about vacations, my post spotlights the top 5 vacation spots for mermaids (or mermaid wannabes). Some may surprise you...
 
 
For instance, you may not think of the frigid waters off the coast of Alaska as a high-ranking vacation spot for the merfolk, but it is. In fact, several books have featured that setting. For instance, the mermaid army in Sarah Porter's Waking Storms hide out in Alaska before moving down the coast. Then there is the latest Emily Windsnap book (Emily Windsnap and the Land of the Midnight Sun) which features Alaska as the setting. What other proof do you need?
 
Maybe you prefer warmer temperatures for your vacations. Don't worry! I've got you covered. Just hop over to A Backwards Story to see the top 5 warm weather hot spots for anyone with flip flops or fins.

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)

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…

The Winner's Crime ( Marie Rutkoski)

Book two of the dazzling Winner's Trilogy is a fight to the death as Kestrel risks betrayal of country for love.

The engagement of Lady Kestrel to Valoria’s crown prince means one celebration after another. But to Kestrel it means living in a cage of her own making. As the wedding approaches, she aches to tell Arin the truth about her engagement... if she could only trust him. Yet can she even trust herself? For—unknown to Arin—Kestrel is becoming a skilled practitioner of deceit: an anonymous spy passing information to Herran, and close to uncovering a shocking secret.

As Arin enlists dangerous allies in the struggle to keep his country’s freedom, he can’t fight the suspicion that Kestrel knows more than she shows. In the end, it might not be a dagger in the dark that cuts him open, but the truth. And when that happens, Kestrel and Arin learn just how much their crimes will cost them.
