Sonnet 42: "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" by Douglas Adams
The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy: A Trilogy in Five Parts - Douglas Adams


The way I (probably mistakenly) see it, the answer 42 represents a view of cheery perfection. It's almost as though it is trying to be as divisible as possible simply to be helpful. Even its name is annoyingly perky. It is the number which represents what the established order (notably religion) has told us represents the universe. It is the number of order, sense and reason. Neither 6 nor 9 nor 54 are particularly welcoming numbers. Douglas Adams seems to like this view of the world. Just like Sirius Cybernetics, we're sold the idea of something being perfect and flawless whereas we all know (even if we are reluctant to truly accept it) that the reality does not match it.

Worst of Friends: Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and the True Story of the American Feud by Larry Day and Suzanne Jurmain
Worst of Friends: Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and the True Story of an American Feud - Suzanne Jurmain,Larry Day

Worst of Friends: Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and the True Story of the American Feud by Larry Day and Suzanne Jurmain is a level S on the Fountas and Pinnell reading level scale. Worst of Friends: Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and the True Story of the American Feud is about two friends who had completely different views. Thomas Jefferson and John Adams disagreed so much about how to run the newly founded United States that they created two different political parties to run against each other in the elections. This book has a lot of history and humor, and ultimately shows a friendship that puts aside its difference to keep their friendship strong. This book would be wonderful for a history lesson to show that not everyone agreed on how this country should run, but it is good to have differences to make the best government and rules. Students could write about a time when they did not agree with a friend, and how they resolved the argument.

good book and characters
Practice Husband - Noelle Adams

Sam is thoughtful, creative, and prone to daydreaming all her life. Sam would never let others see her out of control.  Sam was not the type of person that books are written about but she is the kind that reads them. Sam was introspective, articulate, early to get along with since Sam usually kept her opinions to herself, Sam’s grandfather- Pop- raised her and her two sisters- chelsea and Melissa since their parents had died and he was basically the only family the sisters had. Pop was narrow and judgemental and likes to get his own way. Sam’s older sister Melissa was the only one of the three sisters who had really applied herself and accomplished something impressive in terms of her  career. She had earned herself an exclusive -level position at Pops Home Cooking. Chelsea and Sam were still living on Pop’s money. Pop’s thinks Sam is the good one because she doesn’t do anything bold or adventurous, she doesn’t defy him, and she never makes a scene. Now that Melissa is married Pop is starting on Sam to get married as well as Chelsea. Then Sam brings up a friend of hers- Hunter who needs a job but he just got out of a two years of prison and was on parole he needs a place to live and a job to fulfill some of the conditions of parole but Pop says he doesn’t have fire cons. Sam had known Hunter from HS and she had a thing for him. She had tutored Hunter so he could get good grades to  stay on the football team and for college. Hunter worked hard at the tutoring sessions . But Hunter had Sam in the friend zone. Hunter was from a rich family but when he went to prison they disowned him he wasn’t allowed to even see his younger brother. Sam needed something to push her outside her comfort zone. So now Hunter is going to be Sam’s pretend husband for a year so he can get a job and have a place to live Sam can finally experience parts of life she had only read about before. Hunter ended getting a job with Melissa. Hunter is extremely smart and talented with numbers. While married Sam and Hunter support each other, listen to each other, and they start to care about each other.

I enjoyed reading this book. I liked the plot and the pace a lot. This was a sweet, fun, hot romantic read.  I did get a little annoyed with Sam at times especially the way she overthought things. I liked that we were given enough background on Hunter to understand what happened to him. I loved how Hunter tried to be a good husband.I really liked Hunter and Sam together.I also really liked the hot chemistry between Hunter and Sam. I loved how Hunter tried to be a good husband, If they had only communicated better they would have been happier a lot sooner. I did chuckle at times while reading this. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend.  I would rate this a 4.5 if I could.

Let's Go Play at the Adams' by Mendel W. Johnson
Let's go play at the Adams' - Mendal W. Johnson

I've heard a lot about this book and finally found a copy to read. I have to say I wasn't overly impressed. The kids are nasty, to be sure, especially Paul. He was a true psycho in the making. The other terrifying thing was that the youngest evil kid was only 9! And they were so nonchalant about everything, as if it was just a regular occurrence.  That is what gave me the chills.


But, I just thought the story was too slow and rambled on a bit and I didn't care for the writing style. The copy I had, had formatting issues so it was a bit difficult to read and maybe that's what made it just an ok book for me. I did remind me of The Girl Next Door by Jack Ketchum, which I thought was much better.


If you're into the evil kids bit, this might be for you, otherwise you might want to pass on it.

Practice Husband (Trophy Husbands, #2) by Noelle Adams
Practice Husband - Noelle Adams

 

It's tough to move away from the past when every step finds you within the same place. Hunter and Sam had a destiny. They were meant to be together, but life kept getting in the way. Practice Husband is a chance to start over for two people who never seemed to get it right. Hunter is so much more than his sordid past and with a helping hand from a valued friend, he has a chance to move away from the chains of prison and into the light of the real world. Sam is a bit naive, but her beautiful heart is a treasure just waiting to shine it's value. What began in heartache became an inspiring tale of hope and salvation.
