    I'm reading Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh, HP5 (reread) and Morning Glory by Sarah Jio.  They are all pretty good.  Hyperbole is hilarious!  I adore HP so I'm loving my reread.  I just started Morning Glory yesterday afternoon so I'm not very far in, but it seems pretty good.  They are 10-12 for the year.
    @KrsCrp83 I have this waiting for me at the library! I am looking forward to it.
    Just read her blog.  It is all recycled material.  

    Yep. I was a little disappointed.  It's still funny, but there really wasn't much new material.
    That is kind of disappointing. At least I know now.

    I think it sucks that people are spending money on this book when they could just read it for free on her blog.  So NOT cool.  (I am glad that I didn't buy the book and was able to read it for free).

    "People talk about escapism as if it's a bad thing... Once you've escaped, once you come back, the world is not the same as when you left it. You come back to it with skills, weapons, knowledge you didn't have before. Then you are better equipped to deal with your current reality."

    Again, I agree.  J loves Allie Brosh so I bought it from him.  He never reads anything, so to see him kind of meh on it because there was nothing new was sad (for him) and annoying (for me).

  • I am still working on A Storm of Swords and O is for Outlaw.  I am loving the Game of Thrones book and the Sue Grafton one is just ok. I also start another Pretty Little Liars book but I can't remember the name of it.  It is my favorite series right now and I am also watching it on Netflix which is why I'm not getting much reading in right now!

    They are #13 - 15 for the year.

  • I'm reading Children of the Storm, it is #31 for the year and it's good so far.

    I'm finishing up Zombie Fallout 2, I really love this series, I've actually laughed out loud a lot during these books.  It is #32 for the year.

    I have only read one or two of her blog posts, so it's new to me, and I got it from the library.  But I would have been extremely annoyed if I'd paid for it.  That is not cool.

  • I started reading Auntie Mame last night and I'm having a hard time putting it down.  It is amazing!  I love the movie of the same name, and so far they did a great job staying true to the book.  Love it!

  • I'm reading The Yard by Alex Grecian at home- it's good but two of my holds just came in so I may set it aside to read them (Cress by Marissa Meyer and Dust by Patricia Cornwell).

    At work I'm rereading The Witch of Blackbird Pond and designing a unit for one of my students.

    I'm just finished listening to Red Lily (#3 of the In the Garden trilogy) and Monday I'll start Pardonable Lies (#3 of the Maisie Dobbs series)

    Reading: I'm going back and forth between The Hundred-foot Journey by Richard C. Morais, my Daughter of Smoke and Bone reread and Indexing by Seanan McGuire. All are good. 

    Listening: I just finished up Ignite Me, the last book of the Shatter Me trilogy by Tahereh Mafi and oh my gawd, the drama in that one! I did really like parts of it, but all the drama and back and forth was exhausting. I almost felt like I'd been injected with 17-year-old hormones or something. And the way one character changed felt manipulative to me to make someone else look better. 
    This afternoon I started Breakfast at Tiffany's by Truman Capote. It's narrated by Michael C. Hall and I'm loving it so far.

  • I'm rereading A Shot of Sultry by our very own Macy Beckett. I read book one on Wednesday and will read book 3 next. It's been a stressful week with work/school assignments so I needed something light and funny to read. This series was perfect :)
