Friday Five

1. Well, got back from specialist.  Good news?  Thyroid is fine.  Nodules haven't grown.  Dr. said chances are really good that they won't be cancerous.


Not so great news: My blood count shows that I'm at a higher risk for diabetics.  My mother is diabetic.  Her great-grandmother died of complications of the disease.  I'm Latina. Even doctor told me my culture puts me at a great risk.

Then she noticed my liver count is up.  This means yet another ultrasound just to be sure it's nothing serious.

Like son told me, "Mommy, it sucks to be you this month."

Need to concentrate on the good news.

In the meantime, reading always helps me when I'm kind of down:

2. Right now reading:

Total love the voice in this paranormal series that is DEAD LIKE ME meets YA.

3. Also reading:

Another fun Cybils nominated read.  Witty banter and a setting that is Veronica Mars meets Twilight only written better.

4. Finished reading:

Intriguing dystopian tale.  I picked this galley up at ALA12.

5. So want to see this:

**Guilty treat:

I want to see the second and final BREAKING DAWN movie but will wait till next week.

Will pick up the latest PEOPLE mag as Channing Tatum is the Sexist Man of 2012:


Next week will be better. Then you can tell your son it's "great" to be you.
I just finished a zombie book which I ended up skimming through because despite great writing I just hate violent battle scenes.
Now I'm going to reread CROSSED in preparation for the next book.

Thanks! I saw your book BURIED featured at my local library! I told the new MG reference librarian. Very exciting!
I'm glad that the thyroid, at least, is looking good. Hope all your tests are negative! Much luck with writing, health, and all else.
