From the Library:
Still Star-Crossed by Melinda Taub
I’m not really a huge Romeo & Juliet fan, but this looked interesting, and it was checked in, so I grabbed it.
Hemlock by Kathleen Peacock
This one’s been on my TBR list since before it was released. And I am desperate for some new reading materials. So I grabbed it off the shelf.
That’s it for me. I put some other books on hold, so I hope them come in soon. What goodies did you pick up?
- I saw a baby sloth born at the zoo! Yep, it was crazy, and kind of gross, and totally amazing. I was at the zoo for a meeting, and the zoo employee that runs the committee I’m on was showing us the new Octopus and some other animals, and when we got to the sloth exhibit, we all commented on how active they were. Then a few minutes later, tons of zookeepers were rushing into the exhibit, and we all knew something was going on, and then – BABY SLOTH!
- I’m sort of in a reading slump. I want to read, but I can’t seem to find a book that matches my mood. I’ve read so many contemporaries this summer, but now I am kind of sick of them. But fantasy isn’t really calling my name, either. I need something that feels contemporary, but has some fantastical elements. It’s so frustrating. I hate when I feel like this.
- I cannot believe it is August! The summer is half over already, and I feel like it just started.
- I’m trying to eat really low carb two days a week, and it isn’t going so well. I’ve only done it two days, so far, but my stomach is always growling, even though I’ve eaten. I’m hoping it will get used to it, because I could stand to lose some weight. 🙂
- I watched Elf for the first time yesterday (Friday). It was pretty cute. I also watched Teen Beach Movie, which was cute, but no high school musical. A couple SYTYCDers in the cast, though!
