Its been a good week back home and of course (of course) I did not get as much done as I always think I will. I did ok but have been battling a head cold nasty sinus thing here for the past three days and has really made me not want to do anything much but sleep and watch 80’s movies. (Hey – do not judge me!) 😀
So here is my week in review:
The Christmas Sweater by Glenn Beck (Bookies book review December read!)
Gourmet Rhapsody by Muriel Barbery (author of The Elegance Of The Hedgehog)
Author Chat with Beth Hoffman (yeah…. that’s right SSSQQQUUUUEEEE!!!)
Almond Peanut Butter Ritz Cookies recipe (Recipe from my friend Heidi and uhhh…. YUM!)
The Witchy Worries of Abbie Adams by Rhonda Hayter
This week I am planning to read:
Grace, 17, loves the peace and tranquility of the woods behind her home. It is here during the cold winter months that she gets to see her wolf—the one with the yellow eyes. Grace is sure that he saved her from an attack by other wolves when she was nine. Over the ensuing years he has returned each season, watching her with those haunting eyes as if longing for something to happen. When a teen is killed by wolves, a hunting party decides to retaliate. Grace races through the woods and discovers a wounded boy shivering on her back porch. One look at his yellow eyes and she knows that this is her wolf in human form. Fate has finally brought Sam and Grace together, and as their love grows and intensifies, so does the reality of what awaits them. It is only a matter of time before the winter cold changes him back into a wolf, and this time he might stay that way forever.
The wolves of Mercy Falls return in this sequel to Shiver (Scholastic, 2009), and familiar characters mingle with more recent recruits into the Minnesota werewolf pack. Sam, now cured of his werewolf affliction, is adjusting to year-round life as a human. His girlfriend, Grace, suffers from headaches and other symptoms that may be related to a childhood wolf bite. When her parents discover Sam sleeping in her bed, they ground her and threaten to keep the two apart permanently. Tremendous angst and declarations that parents just don’t understand ensue. Meanwhile Isabel, whose brother did not survive the meningitis cure that saved Sam, feels a strong connection with Cole St. Clair, one of the newest members of the pack. In his old life, Cole was the lead singer of a rock band. This volatile bad boy is a welcome foil to Sam, who is sulky this time around. The addition of Isabel and Cole as narrators dilutes the intensity of Grace and Sam’s relationship, and the spark between Isabel and Cole remains underdeveloped. The tantalizing possibility of Cole’s true identity being exposed also deserves more exploration.
I am so behind on this series that this week I have committed to it. The third book in this series, Forever comes out in July.
So that is my plan this week… well that, and writing reviews I am behind on. I really hope to get around to all your blogs to see what you are reading as well. I pick up my best book recommendations through this meme! 😀
