Friday Five

1. Next Monday is the first day of school!   **Not that I'm counting or anything...

Here's me:


This will be the first time in seven years that I haven't been teaching.  I plan to use this time to finish my latest project and to start a new more adult novel set in Italy!

Crossing fingers that son does well in the public school system.  He wants to go, so that's half of the battle.

2. Finally finished copy edits on the sequel to NO MORE GODDESSES!


3. Finished reading WAKE THE HOLLOW by Gaby Triana:

YA Books Central review: http://www.yabookscentral.com/yafiction/20357-wake-the-hollow

Teaser: Suspenseful jaunt through modern day Sleepy Hollow where a centuries old mystery is met with paranormal elements.

4. Picking up some graphic novels.  This one was on a recommend list from YALSA : http://www.ala.org/yalsa/ggnt/nominations





YA Books Central review: http://www.yabookscentral.com/yafiction/20350-prez-vol-1

Teaser: Rapier wit is woven throughout this graphic novel. Some is biting and others show how desensitized some people are to using drones in war. The bottom line is some will do just about anything for money.

Biting tale with a new heroine in a future that might not be too far off for us.


5.  Just starting this one:

This is one of those types of books I totally LOVE: a psychological thriller where a teen can 'see' who a serial killer will target during her sleep.  She decides to follow him and finds out not all is what she thought.

YA Books Central review coming soon!

**Guilty pleasure:

After I take son in to get his blood drawn, we plan to hit the nearest Starbucks for one of their yummy drinks!
