Secrets of the Tulip Sisters - Susan Mallery
Crewel World - Monica Ferris

I am slipping into a reading slump. Nothing is appealing me and I keep DNF'ing books. This week's DNF was Written in Blood (The Others #1) by Anne Bishop - it was wonderful world building but I couldn't stand Meg and her less than usefulness at adulting. I am considering DNF'ing Secrets of the Tulip Sisters by Susan Mallery if I don't get some plot/action going and I am already tired of a side character's repetitive dieting/hating her curvy body. 

 

So I am going to try to read more from Tulip Sisters and start Crewel World (Needlecraft Mysteries #1) by Monica Ferris with the hopes I can finish at least one book before the end of the month. One more week of summer vacation for my son and I may just put off reading to spend a little more time with him and my daughter before school starts up again.

Home to Whiskey Creek - Brenda Novak
Secrets of the Tulip Sisters - Susan Mallery

The kids made it through ju-jitsu (Japanese style) camp with flying colors in addition to their other activities. This weekend is the summer overnight camp "trip" (camp grounds are 10 minutes from my house), which is their first camping trip ever (our Scout pack camps rain or shine). Next week sees more end of the summer activities plus stuff to do to get ready for the new school year. 

 

 I borrowed from the library Secrets of the Tulip Sisters by Susan Mallery (women's fiction), which I will start sometime this weekend, along with the Crewel World by Monica Ferris (cozy mystery). I moved Dark Witch by Nora Roberts back to the planning shelf since I will use that book for Halloween Bingo. I DNF'd Home to Whiskey Creek but will do a review because I have some things to say about that crap. 

 

Have a happy and safe weekend!

SUMMER HOURS AT THE ROBBERS LIBRARY by Sue Halpern
Summer Hours at the Robbers Library - Sue Halpern
Sunny is sentenced to 40 hours per week service at the library in Riverton for stealing.  She shadows Kit, the librarian.  Kit has secrets she tries to hid.  Sunny learns secrets she, maybe, did not want to know.  Rusty, a daily library patron, lets his secrets be known.  They collide and form a bond none expected.
 
I loved this book.  I liked how it was set up by Kit's secrets and by the weeks Sunny worked at the library.  I also liked the story told from the different points of view.  The secondary characters were quirky and fun.  They were honest in their actions and words. 
 
I would like to know what the future holds for all of them.

Basically a study guide
FTCE Educational Media Specialist PK-12 Secrets Study Guide: FTCE Exam Review for the Florida Teacher Certification Examinations - Ftce Exam Secrets Test Prep Team

 

I used this to study for my Educational Media Specialist certification and passed. So... It worked and was worth the ridiculous price I guess.
