Library Loot

In case you’re wondering if I really look like that while I read, the answer is: yes, yes I do.  Summer’s not so much about reading as it is about being hot in a hammock.
Anyhoo, here’s the roundup.

Library Loot

1. Notes on a Scandal by Zoe Heller—-Because I’m sick of all these goody-goody YA heroines, I want to read a story with an unsympathetic narrator.  And some sandal. Let’s not forget about the scandal.

2. Fried Green Tomatos at the Whistle Stop Cafe by Fannie Flagg—-I’m also in the mood for a homey novel about small town Southern life.

3. Beyond Innocence by Emma Holly—-Sometimes I like my books spicy and by spicy I mean with plenty of steamy you-know-what.  Gotta learn about the birds and the bees somewhere…

4. The Babysitter’s Club Graphic Novel: Kristy’s Great Idea by Ann M. Martin and Raina Telgemeier—-I need to tame down the spicy read with kid lit. And I’ve read Kristy’s Great Idea 3X when I was 10!  Diabetes, fondue, nail-biting, nibbling your PB&J sandwiches into the shape of snowmen, bald stepfathers, scrunchies: I feel as if this was my childhood, except it was entirely fictional.

5. Grammar Girl’s Quick and Dirty Tips for Better Writing by Mignon Fogarty—– Because nobody learned me how to spoke.

  1. I have read none of those. But I saw the movie Notes on a Scandal! It was so good; Judi Dench is one of my heroes.

  2. I love the movie, too! I read the first few pages of Notes on Amazon and the writing seemed to flow. I wished I had read the book first. Now, as I read, I have the movie stuck in my head.
