Happy Mother’s Day to all the mommas out there!


This week has been full of highs and lows, and I just don’t feel like blogging all that much. Especially when it comes to writing reviews. Blah. At least the weather is nice so I can sit out in the sun and work on stuff. It’s already supposed to get in the 100s next week, though. Yikes.

Also, I just want to let you all know that if I die anytime soon, it’ll most likely be because of my son’s driving. Worst. Driver. Ever.

  1. Are you sure you’re not making your son nervous? (“Where’s that freakin’ right-side brake?!?!?! I know I had it installed over here!!!!!”) Well, it was nice knowing you anyways…..

    I think we’re ordering Dalton’s two books, Sixteenth & Seventeenth Summer, if we can. My girl is looking for Pulled Under, too πŸ™‚ You Rock!!!

    Happy Mother’s Day and RIP…

    • I just looked, there is no Seventeenth Summer but I swear when we were looking in her buying system it was there. I wonder if that was what they were calling Pulled Under??? Hmmmmm…

        I don’t know, it’s confusing. The characters are 16, so Seventeenth Summer wouldn’t make sense. In the blurb it says: “in the tradition of Sixteenth Summer and Seventeenth Summer.” The only 3 books by that author are Fifteenth Summer, Sixteenth Summer, and Pulled Under, which says is “A Sixteenth Summer” book. None of them are connected character or setting wise. So, I have no freaking clue.

      No, I swear he’s just … not good. I don’t know if it’s his ADD or what, but … ugh. I’m not even joking, we would’ve been hit so many times if I hadn’t said something.

      Yay! Push those books to girls as young as 12-13 if they read at that level. Seriously, that is the type of stuff they should be reading, so many different healthy relationships.

      Thanks! lol – My son will be 17 in August. He has his permit now, so he’s trying to get his hours in before his test in July. Not fun. πŸ˜€

  2. Ouch! I really hope your son gets better at driving. That’s why I won’t get a licence yet, I’ll leave that throne to him πŸ˜€ Anyhow you’ve got some amazing book sand I really hope you’ll enjoy them. Great post πŸ™‚

  3. I really need to read Partials – it seems like an exciting trilogy. Lucky you won it! πŸ™‚ Happy reading and I hope your reviewing slump fades away soon!

      lol – Well, he’s required to drive a certain amount of hours with his permit before getting his license in July, so … I kind of have to.

  4. My daughter is 16 1/2 and still hasn’t taken the test. She never wants to drive. What 16yo doesn’t want to drive?! She’s a good driver, but we’re going to work on her hours behind the wheel this summer. If she wants to get a job then she needs her own license. lol My son, on the other hand, will be 15 next month. Which means at 15 1/2 he can get a learner’s permit. He’s the one that scares me and he’s not even behind the wheel yet. LOL Have a wonderful week and *fingers crossed* you do not perish anytime soon.

      I wish my son didn’t. He’ll be 17 in August and I tried putting it off as long as I could. He has his permit right now. Ugh.

    Sounds like my week but I didn’t have the driving son. He’ll get better, really! Now, grab a book and read outside before it’s too gross to do so. πŸ™‚ Happy Mother’s Day!

  6. Sounds like you have yourself a really great haul this week! I also have to commend you for at least getting in the same car as your son so he can practice driving. my mother won’t get in the same car as me until …well i don’t know until when. LOL

  7. “Also, I just want to let you all know that if I die anytime soon, it’ll most likely be because of my son’s driving. Worst. Driver. Ever.” That made me giggle! I hope you had a good mother’s day, and that your son didn’t drive you anywhere. πŸ˜€

    Can’t wait to hear what you think of the Partials books!

  8. The weather here is awful, really cold and rainy this week and no way I can sit outside. Arrgh, children and driving… I am the worst passenger and would rather walk than to drive with someone else (my dad is fine!) . Son No 1 is doing h is licence at the moment, but hubby doesn’t drive, so I have the monopoly over our car!
