I'm Twittering!



Well, last week I decided to go ahead and jump on the Twitter Bandwagon! Although to me it is a lot like a chatroom, I figure if Joyce Valenza's doing it...it is something I should check out.

Hunted by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast


In this installment of the House of Night Series, Zoey has just escaped Kalona and the Raven Mockers. She and her friends are hiding in the tunnels with the Red Fledglings. Neferet has become evil and is a powerful enemy. Zoey and Eric seemed to be making up just as Heath arrives again! And when Zoey is seriously injured she must drink from Heath and their Imprint is reestablished. Not to mention, Kalona has been stalking Zoey in her dreams and wants her to be his A-ya. That is three guys after Zoey so far and there is still a fourth she encounters that she begins to fall for! I enjoyed the fast pace of this novel.

By the time I reached the end, I half hoped that things would be resolved but I also didn’t want the story to end. Will Zoey remain with Eric? What about her Imprint with Heath? Can she save Stark? Defeat Kalona?

Book Reviews



I am not sure yet how to link my two blogs together. I would love to have my book reviews blog feed directly into this one. I don't want to lose my following on that blog so I guess for now I will just copy each review over to this blog. You can find my other blog at http://booksforteens.edublogs.org

TLA Conference


TLA was awesome. And I plan to write all about it. But, it's past my bedtime already.

Check out one of the fun pics I took at the conference. Here I am reading to Darth Vader. Boy I look mad about reading to him...don't I?

I swear it was fun...really it was!

Month of March



Yep! It's been too long. I am finding it hard to keep up with my blog(s) and work and my Master's. But I am back in the saddle and I am trying my best to keep up with weekly entries. I am going to back track some to keep up to date on what has happened from Feb. 22-Apr. 16.

Well, let's see...it's been busy. Actually most of March I was in charge of administering an online test.
March 2-6 (TELPAS Testing)
March 9-13 (Spring Break!!!)
March 16-20 (TELPAS Testing)
March 23-27 (TELPAS Testing)
What all that means is that I was out of the library...

The last week in March I was able to attend the Texas Library Association Conference. It was so much fun...but for now more on that is another post.
