Reading Round-Up

I spent last week basking in the sun and playing in the waters of Perdido Key.  Though Gulf waters were slightly colder than normal, I was not deterred.

I spotted a school of about 20-30 stingrays, eight dolphins frolicking in the surf, and one very large (and very close to shore) shark.  Scuttlebutt said it was a Great Hammerhead, but I have my doubts; I saw the head and it was not a hammerhead.  Looked more like a blue shark or a nurse shark to me.

I also played both the Florida Lotto and the Powerball.  Alas, I was not a winner in either.  Better luck next time.

I did some extensive reading done, and that is the goal of this blog post–to share with you what I read.


Masterful and exquisite period piece set in the Great Depression.  This comes out in June.

a hundred summers

The perfect, propulsive summer read.  A Hundred Summers is like candy–once you start, you can’t stop!


Disappointing but better than The Lost Symbol.

5th wave

A YA novel adults will love.  Thought-provoking and highly intense, this page-turner will keep you up all night.
