Friday Five

1. This week has been busy with reading Cybils books.  I thought I'd share some of my reads!

**Can you see a trend here?

THE HIT by Melvin Burgess

This futurist world is set in a very depressing UK where only a select few make it while the rest are struggling.  Add to the mix a drug that gives you a surge of emotion/energy/life.  Wouldn't you want to at least try that?  But there is a condition.  The 'Death' drug lasts only for a week, then you're dead.

This unique take on the very satiated dystopia market kept my attention with all the twists and turns.












2.  THE BODIES WE WEAR by Jeyn Roberts

Another dystopia novel, with another type of drug, but this one 'promises a glimpse into heaven.


3. WINTERKILL by Kate Boorman

A futurist world in a commune like society.  Emm resists the urge to go into the forbidden forest.  The same forest that was her grandmother's downfall.  When the leader of the commune offers his hand in marriage, Emm knows this will wipe the slate clean of her family's shame.  But the forest still calls out to her...














4. DREAM BOY



When the exact boy of her dreams 'shows' up in her high school,  Annabelle, isn't sure what to think.  Things are amazing at first but then the nightmares come.

5. Today we are scheduled for a mega storm.  It hit yesterday up North in Sacramento/San Francisco area.  Send positive thoughts our way that this doesn't lead to more flooding.  Somehow son and husband think we should just wait and see what happens while I'll be sandbagging some more.


**Guilty Pleasure:

Not sure if I'll be able to do that today considering the huge storm and all.  Tomorrow though I did sign up to attend the December OCCRWA meeting.

Writing coach Lynn Lorenz will present “Front-End Load Your Manuscript” in the morning and “Plotting by the Seat of Your Pants” in that afternoon at the monthly meeting of the Orange County Chapter of the Romance Writers of America. It begins at 10 a.m. at the Brea Community Center, 695 E.
