24 Festive Tasks, Door 10 - Bon Om Touk
Summer With A Star - Merry Farmer

Bon om Touk

Book: I choose Summer with a Star by Merry Farmer.

 

Task #2

My kids' Cub Scouts pack had their annual Rain Gutter Regatta in September. Here are their boats, built with help from Dad.

 

Task #3

I really dig a slow, almost misty, rainy day. A day that requires a light blanket, a comfy chair, and tea and scone on a nearby table. Also, a table lamp for enough light to read but not too bright along with a scented candle burning.

The House of the Scorpion
The House of the Scorpion - Nancy Farmer

Another one from NPR's Ultimate Backseat Bookshelf.

 

I've owned this book forever. My grandma gave it to me, and I just never got around to reading it. It would not have appealed to me as a kid, and I had to resort to skimming several times because the story was too graphic.

 

The writing felt inconsistent. Sometimes it was great and I was really immersed in the story. Other times it was so boring it felt like a slog to finish. The pacing was equally inconsistent. There are so many interesting ideas in the book that went nowhere.

 

If I hadn't challenged myself to complete it, I would have quit reading about 100 pages in. I'm not mad that I've read it. I guess I'm just confused why it keeps ending up on best of lists. Has no one written a better kids cloning book since 2002? Maybe it's because I'm not a fan of sci-fi. Maybe I'm just not getting it.
