Today is my sister Lori's birthday! Happy Happy Lori!
AND!! Kid #2 turns 18 months!
18 MONTHS!! Wow. A lot can happen in 18 months. For instance Kid #2 learned to crawl, walk, talk, eat and scream in that short amount of time. And boy can he scream. In fact he practices every day. He enters each room with a scream and a smile.
It's a good thing he's cute.
So... with a bunch of holidays dotting the calendar this month I've decided to give the gift of book recommendations! Aren't you excited?!
1. Matched by Ally Condie
Now I know y'all have heard about this book. I mean, who hasn't? And, yes, it's definitely worth it. All that hype. All those days of waiting. It's finally out so go get it!
by April Lindner
A modern remake of Jane Eyre? For real? Yes, please!
Haven't read it yet but it's on my Christmas list. And I've been good. So...
3. Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly
Another one on the list. Can't wait to read it! Love the cover!
4. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Yes. It's totally on the list. And!! The author has blue hair!
Tangent alert: Once when I was at the mall with Kid #1 she turned to me and said, "Mom, that girl has blue hair." And I said, "yes, she does."
Then Kid #1 said, "but why does she have blue hair?" And I said, "because she likes blue hair." And Kid #1 said, "okay." And that was that. But secretly I wanted to say, "because blue hair is cool."
(It wasn't Stephanie Perkins BTW)
And now I must go and eat cake, because that's what you do when someone you know turns a new number.
OH! And go check out the new look over at the Apocalypsies blog!
