Brooding YA Hero: Becoming a Main Character (Almost) as Awesome as Me - Carrie DiRisio,Broody McHottiepants,Linnea Gear

Brooding YA Hero: Becoming a Main Character (Almost) as Awesome as Me was hilarious and made me laugh a lot. So it's perfect for this square.

 

 

Book themes for Festivus: Read anything comedic; a parody, satire, etc. Books with hilariously dysfunctional families (must be funny dysfunctional, not tragic dysfunctional). Anything that makes you laugh (or hope it does).

Recipes, Recipes, Recipes, Diet and Gluten Free
Smoothie Recipes for Weight Loss : 30 Delicious Detox, Cleanse and Green Smoothie Diet Book - Troy Adashun
Just Dessert Recipes: The Cookbook For Easy Weekday After Dinner Treats To Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth - Alisha Abbott,Aston Publisher,Amelia Cooke
Crock Pot: 500 Crock Pot Recipes Cookbook - Emily Addyson
Tasty Chocolate Dessert Recipes: Scrumptious Homemade Chocolate Desserts - Nora Aguro
School Lunches: 21 Delicious Gluten Free Recipes - Carrie Adair
Easy Gluten Free Bread Recipes Cookbook:... Easy Gluten Free Bread Recipes Cookbook: So Good Your Family Will Never Know The Difference - Mary Aden

Let me start by saying that School Lunches was an interesting assortment of "lunches" but not something I would have sent to school with my kids (when they were in Public School), because they were just not practical. The other thing with this book is that while they would be good for homeschooling lunches, this book is listed as not available (or at least the copy I got for free is not available). 

 

The other books were quite interesting and I marked quite a few for making with my kids for meals and desserts and for gifting. 

 

I read these all in one sitting, because my asthma started up strong (lots of drugs) and to top it off I got a sinus and ear infection (more drugs). I am just super tired and the birthday curse hit again. The birthday curse is when we celebrate 5 birthday in 3 days (2 on 22nd, my daughter and a cousin's daughter, my bil, my birthday and another cousin's daughter). 

 

I do recommend the books. I thoroughly enjoyed the smoothie book and think I will try making a few of those. 

 

Enjoy

The Carrie Diaries - Candace Bushnell

I wasn't sure how I'd like this book going into it. I've watched the TV adaptation and liked it well enough. It wasn't my favorite, but it was entertaining.

I'm glad I ended up reading the book, because I did enjoy it. It's not the world's best literature or anything, but it is an entertaining read that goes surprisingly quickly despite the long length. It is a pretty relaxing read for the most part, but does bring up some important points. Bushnell incorporates many topics into the text such as feminism, cliques, and power dynamics.

I'll admit the last quarter of the book was kind of a let down. I liked the ending well enough and it was set up nicely for the second book, but there were things that happened that made the book more stressful than relaxing for me. It's not necessarily a critique of the book, just something that interrupted my personal enjoyment of it.

As far as TV show vs. book, I think the characters are pretty consistent although. the show smooshes Lali and Maggie together. Also, Missy doesn't exist in the TV show universe. The mishaps and problems each character faces varies slightly, but for the most part they are similar.

Overall, a very entertaining read.

Need

“Need” is one of the first paranormal books I have read in my life and I can tell you that I really enjoyed reading this book! “Need” is a paranormal book written by Carrie Jones and it is about how Zara White realizes that a mysterious stranger has followed her from her hometown Charleston to her new home in Maine. “Need” is a brilliant book that will be a huge hit for paranormal fans.

What can I say? Carrie Jones has really brought life to this paranormal romantic story. Carrie Jones has made the book extremely intense yet charming at the same time as Zara White is a truly wonderful character in this book. Zara is not afraid to speak her mind as she is genuinely interested in World Peace and she tells everyone her desire to be a pacifist with such passion that it makes her a truly admirable and courageous character. Another character who is truly memorable in this book is Nick Colt as he seems like a mysterious character, but as the story progresses, he becomes a close friend to Zara as he is willing to protect her from any danger. Carrie Jones brings creativity to this book as each chapter is named after various types of phobias that Zara experiences in her adventures in Maine such as one chapter being called “Didaskaleinophobia – fear of going to school” and another chapter is called “Sitophobia – fear of eating.”

For adults who do not like bad language in books, this book has a couple of mild profanities, but the profanities in this book are not as strong as some of the books and it might not affect many adults who dislike bad language in books.

“Need” is a truly mesmerizing book full of mystery and romance that any hardcore paranormal fan will for ages.
