Friday Five

1. This week's Spring Break so I've been kicking back and not answering anything that has to do with

a. Education
b. State Testing
c. Lesson plans


2. Got this fab box of books from the lovely YA Books Central:

**Reading REBELS BY ACCIDENT-Miriam is an Egyptian teen who ends up being sent back to Egypt to live with her grandmother after getting in trouble.  Then she gets caught up in the Egyptian revolution.  I really wanted to read this one as Eihab, my brother-in-law is an Egyptian national and has lots of extended family still in Egypt.  He kept me up to date on what was going on during the revolution.


3. Also been going to Omar's Exotic Bird store and playing with these cockatiels.  Husband says it's about time to get another one.  They're so cute, smart, and inquisitive.



4. Been reading CHARLIE, PRESUMED DEAD:

This novel feels very similar to Gayle Forman's JUST ONE DAY only this time it's two girls searching for the truth behind Charlie(their boyfriend) death.  Seems Charlie was dating both of these girls at the same time and only at his 'death' do they meet.  But Charlie's not the only one with a secret.














5. Finished reading HOTEL RUBY in a few hours.

Seriously, loved this read which had a Stephen King feel going for it. Not too gory, more psychological horror. Just how I like them!

















**Guilty pleasure:

I'm going to 'treat' self to this new facial my doctor's office is doing.

Next week the school district close to us is having Spring break.  So this will be interesting as son's friends attend their high school and middle school.

Wishing break would last longer!
