I found Homecoming in the library of my middle school, and I loved the hard, gritty edge of her stories.

Book Review: Dangerous Boys

July 28, 2014 Bekka, book review 0 ★★★★½

Stacking the Shelves #94

July 26, 2014 Bekka, Stacking the Shelves 5

Stacking the Shelves is hosted at Tynga’s Reviews Bekka here.  This week kind of flew by for me!  Mike gets a week off every month and that was this week, so I spent a lot of time with him.  Also, we’ve been doing a lot of redecorating, so that’s fun.  Not fun: starting in on his student loans.  Not fun: blazing heat and having to walk to and from the grocery store.  Is it autumn yet?  I got a few books this week and all but one were really, really more »
