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 Hard and Fast by Erin McCarthy which I've already review here.
My next read was Hot Summer Fling by Toni Zuma. This was a short I read for The Book Binge. You can read my review here.
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!
