As a kid I was obsessed with the Goosebumps books by R.L. Stine. In the fifth grade I also became obsessed with true crime. I never really read anything else but Goosebumps and true crime until a few years ago. Now I read just about anything I can get my hands on. I enjoy all genres and you will see that in the books I review. However, my favorite genres are horror and paranormal.
As much as I hate doing this, I have decided I need a break from blogging. Not because I don't want to do it anymore but because of how many headaches I've been getting lately. I'm getting headaches that turn into migraines really fast just from reading a few pages, which means I'm not getting much reading done. I know I need glasses but I don't have the money for them right now. As soon as I can get them and can start reading again, I will be back on here. Please don't stop following because I will be back. I'm not sure how long I will be gone but I know that I will be back in January at the latest. If it takes that long it just means that I had to ask Santa for glasses. :-) I have a lot of plans for this blog, but until I can start reading again there isn't much I can do. I hope when I get back (in a couple weeks, months or the beginning of next year) you will all still be here. Until then, take care guys.
Details: 345 pages Expected publication: September 6th 2011 by Katherine Tegen Books
Grace just moved to San Francisco and is excited to start over at a new school. The change is full of fresh possibilities, but it’s also a tiny bit scary. It gets scarier when a minotaur walks in the door. And even more shocking when a girl who looks just like her shows up to fight the monster.
Gretchen is tired of monsters pulling her out into the wee hours, especially on a school night, but what can she do? Sending the minotaur back to his bleak home is just another notch on her combat belt. She never expected to run into this girl who could be her double, though.
Greer has her life pretty well put together, thank you very much. But that all tilts sideways when two girls who look eerily like her appear on her doorstep and claim they're triplets, supernatural descendants of some hideous creature from Greek myth, destined to spend their lives hunting monsters.
These three teenage descendants of Medusa, the once-beautiful gorgon maligned by myth, must reunite and embrace their fates in this unique paranormal world where monsters lurk in plain sight.
Well, I'm not completely back yet. I am still a little bit sick and lately I've been getting a lot of migraines. So needless to say, I haven't been reading much and I don't even have any reviews to post. I really should have had some reviews and other posts ready for this kind of thing. I should know better since I get sick so often.
Anyways, since I haven't really posted anything in two weeks I've decided that if I feel up to it I will post what I can. I am so sorry about this. I am hoping that I will be back to normal soon.
I have the flu and right this second I don't feel too bad so I figured I would do my wrap up post.
As for the read-a-thon, I failed. Why doesn't that surprise me? I read Extraordinary by Nancy Werlin and half of Restoring Harmony by Joëlle Anthony before I started getting sick. I am really disappointed because I had a lot of fun the first day and wanted to keep going. Maybe next time I will do better.
