I did a BIG thing this week. I paid off my car loan! “Why is this a big deal?” you ask. Well, this is the first time in my car-buying life that I don’t have a car payment. (My first car was purchased for me, so I don’t count those years.) I think that’s going to be a very nice feeling. And then I’m sure I’ll find some frivolous things to spend my extra money on. 🙂
I Am the Mission by Allen Zadoff: I read the first book in this series back when it was called Boy Nobody, and I really enjoyed it. They’ve since changed the name of that book to I Am the Weapon, and I’m looking forward to this sequel.
The Young World by Chris Weitz: Chris Weitz first came to my attention when he starred in the awesomely creepy film, Chuck & Buck, with Mike White in 2000. Has anyone else seen it? I think that was the only time I’ve seen it, and I’ve wanted to watch it again. It popped up on my DVR a week or two ago, but I completely forgot to record it. I just looked for it now, but there are no future airings currently. My cheap self might need to plunk down $3 to rent it on iTunes. Anyway back to Chris Weitz – he’s also directed films (American Pie, About a Boy, New Moon), produced films, and worked as a screenwriter (Antz, The Golden Compass, and the upcoming Cinderella). In other words, it’s only logical that he is now an author.
AUDIOBOOKS – FREE!
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein: Don’t forget about the free audiobooks every week this summer at SYNC! (I already purchased this one on Audible, but I wanted to include this here so you all know about it.)
The Dark World by Cara Lynn Schultz
The Lost by Sarah Beth Durst: This was on NG for a while, but I hesitated to request it since the last book I read by Durst was so…odd. The library seemed like a safer bet.
Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King
