The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones

Christmas Cookies

The Christmas lights are already up on the houses twinkling in the evening calm.  The brisk cold wind will be coming in soon to welcome the holiday season.   Besides sipping that mulled cider heating on the stove, I look forward to some holiday baking of scrumptious cookies, morsels of pastries, and heartwarming pies.   I love the challenge.  As the work gets on the way, the sweet aroma of pastries baking in the oven just spurs me on.  The marathon has begun!

Have Yourself a Merry Little Reading Break

Black Friday is behind us at last, but alas! That only means the holiday shopping season is just ramping up for many of us.  Don't get me wrong-- I love to shop.  I love making lists (and checking them twice), and I love finding gifts for the special people in my life.  I enjoy all the other things that go with this time of year, too-- baking and decorating and special events.  (I could do without the traffic, but hey, that's Rockland for you.) 

What does bother me is the sense of a looming December deadline that seems to have grown with my adulthood.

A Book Review of Independent Study by Joelle Charbonneau : reviewed by Sarah Singer

 

 

The sequel to The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau, Independent Study, is full of suspense and thrills. Cia Vale, after finishing a series of grueling tests, has finally been admitted to the University. Even though her memories of the testing have been erased, she remembers. Cia delves deeper and deeper, trying to uncover the ugly truth about the true nature of the government. This thriller is a page turner, filled to the brim with romance, passion, betrayal, violence, and danger. Dystopian fans will surely devour every word of Independent Study.
