Hidee Ho Neighbors! Wassup with your bad selves? Are you all having good weekends? Hope so.
It was a pretty normal week for me here in Tracy Town. My boss finally got back from her 5 week Sabbatical. I swear it didn’t seem like 5 weeks went by. 🙂
This weekend I made an impromptu trip to visit Holly. We had a great time. I drove to her place (about 3 hours away from me) yesterday. I was lucky enough to catch the tail end of Daphne’s visit with Holly so we all went out to dinner last night and had Mexican food – yum. Then my youngest and I went back to Holly’s and I invaded her book room. Oh it’s so beautifully stuffed with books! lol Then today we went back to Holly’s and I invaded “the room” again. Needless to say we had a great time talking books and I borrowed some great stuff. My youngest had a fab time with Holly’s Rock Band – she got pretty good on those drums! lol
Ok – so on to what I read this week:
Holding Out for a Hero by Ana Leigh was my first read of the week. This is a book that I read for The Book Binge. The book releases on Tuesday and the review will post that day as well.
Next up was Hero by Perry Moore. This is a YA novel that I read about on Kris’s blog (click the link to see her thoughts). It’s a book about a teenage boy who is discovering he has super powers but he has to keep that info from his dad because his dad was once a superhero and was later spurned by the super hero League. He also has to keep the fact that he’s gay from his dad. It’s a book about a boy coming into his own and the relationships that are forming the person he is becoming. It’s an incredible read and I recommend it. Although it doesn’t seem totally dark and has humor in it, it’s definitely not a happy tale. Rating: 4.5 out of 5
For Tracy’s TBR Challenge Read for the week I chose Naughty Neighbor by Janet Evanovich. I have to admit I picked this one because it was short. lol A story about a screenwriter and his neighbor who start off by hating each other but come together to try to find out what happened to a pig. Sounds cute, and it is. Rating 3 out of 5
My last read was Under Fire by Jo Davis. I’m having mixed feelings about this second book in her series. I think I’m going to review it this week but I truly can’t decide whether I liked it or not – and I’m definitely having problems rating it. hmmmm….need to ponder.
So did you read anything good this week? What was it? Tell all!
