What Are You Reading ... I Can't Lie!

I have a HUGE stack of books sitting next to my bed, I can't lie about that! It includes ...  The Gallaher Girls Series  by Allie Carter !!! 
{that's just part of the pile , not to mention my downloads}

Yes, yes I do!!!
 A friend hooked me on them. Of course they are waiting patiently to be read. 
They are marked as Middle Grades+ , 6 grade and up.
The first book is called 

I'd Tell You I Love You, 

Cammie Morgan is a student at the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women, a fairly typical all-girls school-that is, if every school taught advanced martial arts in PE and the latest in chemical warfare in science, and students received extra credit for breaking CIA codes in computer class. The Gallagher Academy might claim to be a school for geniuses but it's really a school for spies.

So what is you pile????

My downloads right now include ... 1. Blue, Lilly, Blue by Maggie Stiefavter 2. The Scorch Trials by James Dashner {I can't lie again , I watched The Maze Runner and was hooked BEFORE reading the book}  3. Never, Never by Colleen Hoover 4. Panic by Lauren Oliver 5. Barbecue and Bad News by Nancy Naigle

Happy Book Snail Mail

I came home today and checked the mail as I usually do.  Today wasn't an ordinary day though because I found a box that contained one of the greatest things ever ..... A book! Not just any book, but a brand spanking new up opened except to be signed of course by one of my most favorite ladies ever!


That's right! You guessed it! The NEW Save The Date by Mary Kay Andrews!!!!!

She was in Raleigh at Quail Ridge Books in Raleigh this week!!  Unfortunately my daughter was going to be playing in a softball  tournament that kept me from going. (RATS! ) So I contacted her and as always was delighted to hook me up with a signed copy! I already had a digital copy, but my Mom still likes to read a good ol' fashion book and I love a signed copy for my bookshelf! :) 

So thank you Mary Kay Andrews a.k.a Kathy Hogan Trocheck for being as awesome as always! I look forward to the next time our paths cross and to reading Save The Date!! 

A savannah florist is about to score the wedding of a lifetime—one that will solidify her career as the go-to-girl for society nuptials. Ironically, Cara Kryzik doesn't believe in love, even though she creates beautiful flower arrangements to celebrate them. But when the bride goes missing and the wedding is in jeopardy, Cara must find the bride and figure out what she believes in.  Maybe love really does exist outside of fairy tales after all.

Summer Reading

I will be adding the Sumer Reading 
to the Sumer Reading Page this week!!!

Watch for it!!!!!!!

What are you flipping 
through this summer???

The Fault In Our Stars

One of my high school students has bugged me all year to read The Fault In Our Stars. I kept putting it off and reading something  else , ect. Then another student started reading and RAVED about it. Ok, I said Ill get to it. Then my daughters teacher read it and said it was amazing and a "must read."

FINE ..... I'll READ IT !!!!!!! Ummm fact of the matter I wanted to read it before the movie came out ,but when I finally picked up 2 weeks before school got out I COULD NOT put it down!!!! 

You felt totally connected to each and every character in the story and even though the story line at some points  has a bleak outlook , you want more. It's a different ending and leaves you with a great feeling of appreciation for those around you in your life and that things could always be worse. 

Definitely a 5 Star read!!!

I can only say that I hope the movie does the book justice!!!

In The Fault in Our Stars, John Green has created a soulful novel that tackles big subjects--life, death, love--with the perfect blend of levity and heart-swelling emotion. Hazel is sixteen, with terminal cancer, when she meets Augustus at her kids-with-cancer support group. The two are kindred spirits, sharing an irreverent sense of humor and immense charm, and watching them fall in love even as they face universal questions of the human condition--How will I be remembered? Does my life, and will my death, have meaning?--has a raw honesty that is deeply moving.
