I had planned on gathering all the pictures for this week but three things happened. The flu attacked my two sisters and my mother and I had to hold their hair and fetch ginger ale. My job is slowly killing me as we had a sports expo in town and they all had to eat at my restaurant. And I got in to a very awesome twitter conversation about awesome 80's movies and the people (HOPE!) who haven't seen them. So here it is again in list form. I promise next week I will be a better blogger.
I finally got the long-awaited, much-anticipated and oh so lovely 20 Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler. It came with the absolute loveliest note and I am in love with the 5 pages I have read. (see above for excuses as to why I am only 5 pages in.) It is also sorta her fault since she was part of the twitter conversation!
- No Laughter Here by Rita Williams-Garcia (from the amazing Melissa Walker)
- Something Happened by Greg Logsted
- The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein
- Interred With Their Bones by Jennifer Lee Carrell
The next three were sent to me by Karen from Bookin With Bingo and if you haven't checked out her blog, do so ASAP!
Smart Girls Marry Money by Elizabeth Ford and Daniela Drake
Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen (such a pretty cover)
Nothing is Quite Forgotten In Brooklyn by Alice Mattison
and from the library
Charmed Thirds by Megan McCafferty (I am slowly catching up on this series!)
I also bought myself the Twilight DVD on Thursday. I hadn't bought anything for myself in months and I thought that was a great little present for the crap week I was having. So YAY TWILIGHT and the amazingly funny commentary with Rob and Kristen!
