Artemis
Artemis: A Novel - Andy Weir

I have no idea quite how to rate this book so I'm going with 3.5 stars. My first impulse was 4 because I thoroughly enjoyed it, but then I finished it, sat back and actually thought. Most of the plot wouldn't have happened if the main character Jazz hadn't been such a petulant asshole, and pretty much everything is her fault. It's hard to feel sympathy for those kinds of characters, the ones that keep making terrible life choices over and over and never seem to learn. And then in the end get away Scott free. Talk about maddening. 

 

But the writing was well done, the plot moved along at nice clip, and the science seemed sound. Not too much over the top like in the original Jurassic Park books where I wanted to gouge out my eyes every time Malcolm talked. I just wish Weir had dialed it down on the bitch scale a bit because Jazz damn near ruined everything and seemed to think she was entitled to no punishment. Talk about arrogant.

 

 

P.S. early in my marriage we had a black pug named Artemis. He was a needy shit but we loved him.

Boxer meets the woman he is supposed to have killed... hijinks ensue
No Good Duke Goes Unpunished: Number 3 in series (Rules of Scoundrels) - Sarah MacLean

Temple fights people who have lost their money with very few exceptions, one is the brother of the woman he's accused of killing years ago, only she isn't dead. She turns up again in his life and he is not sure what to do about her and about their mutual past. She is the one person who doesn't fear him and now they have to learn a way to go forward. I enjoyed it, wanted them to talk a bit more occasionally and sometimes the misunderstandings were more intended for humour than anything else but it was entertaining.

Collection of magazine articles.
Star Trek - All Good Things: A Next Gene... Star Trek - All Good Things: A Next Generation Companion - Titan Books

Spotted this at the library and since I love 'Star Trek' it seemed like it would be a fun read. Since I had not done any research prior to checking out the book I had been under the impression it had been a book specifically about the episode "All Good Things..." but it turns out it's actually a companion book to the 'Star Trek: The Next Generation' series. Oops! My mistake, but no big deal.

 

The book is actually a collection of magazine articles about the show. The actors, the movies, the episodes, the crew, etc. So it really depends on what you are looking for. If you were hoping for "new" information that was not in the articles that's not what this is. But if you're someone who liked the show and missed these articles or didn't want to/could not purchase the magazines at the time then this would be a good read.

 

There are some nice pictures, fun facts and the like. Since it's articles about the show you're not really going to get juicy gossip or stuff that is not going to promote TNG. Some of it was fun and informative, but some was stuff that could be found floating around the internet or some of it just wasn't interesting at all (sorry, I adore Patrick Stewart and Captain Picard but I wasn't interested in Stewart's cat). My own personal preference, though.

 

That's it. If you've already read the articles then you probably would be disappointed but a collector would probably like this a lot if they didn't already have the magazines or want something that has all of them together. The text font was also a bit small (I'm not familiar with the magazines so I'm not sure if it's me or what) and I've noticed some complaints about the formatting (e-book version?) so you may want to find a way to check this out and have a look before purchasing.

You're Not The Only One Having A Bad Day
Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day - Ray Cruz,Judith Viorst

Guided Reading Level: M

Grade Level: k-2

Summary: Alexander is having the worst day of his life! It's so bad, he wants to move to Australia. Let's be honest. Haven't we all had days like this? This book is something that young readers can absolutely relate to, and that's what I love about it! One could teach children that every day will not be perfect, sometimes people go through things. However, these things make you a better person because you learn from them. They're what make you who you are!

Idea: I will most definitely be using this book for a cause and effect lesson. I will also use this book to house a class discussion on what makes a good day, as well as a bad one. The more students are able to relate to the text, the more information they will be able to get out of it!
