This was somewhat sappier than my typical read. I‘m a little bit of a sucker for tales of teenage loves reunited. A little Lifetime movie-ish with some expected predictability, but the writing wasn‘t terrible. It was decent as a breather between heavier reads.

My students were asking for more dystopian stories, and although this may not traditionally fit, I think they will like it. This story follows the story of two people brought together over and over again through the ages. I enjoyed that it started in the future and worked back to before the Vikings. Definitely enjoyable and appropriate for high school students.

The #mardybum count is sky high in this book. Granted, being stuck on a mountain for five days without adequate food, water, or clothing would test anyone. The four characters stranded together were interesting enough, albeit some of them (BRIDGET) were super annoying and the book itself had a trite tone that was disappointing. #ayupaugust #darguschmarkupbookclub

It‘s been a while since I read this. I recall a house with memories and a story to share. Typical Susan Meissner, which is to say I loved it.

This was my attempt at trying a different genre than normal and while it wasnt awful, it also wasn't a favorite. The book contains 7 stories that flow together with little details here and there. I always felt like I was starting a story but that it finished before the end. But my desire to see how these stories flowed together and to see how the story began, drove me forward in reading. It was entertaining but not one a would leap to recommend.

#AMonthOfSongs Day 20: #LoveLies in the sacrifice between mother & child. This is a moving story that signifies a mother‘s dream for her child, and the child‘s determination to succeed to ensure that her mother‘s sacrifice is not in vain. “Though it be far, where the road winds high and low, I will come home to you, by and by. I will come home to you, Mama, By and by.”

2. My son's latest report card from school mentioned how he is very observant of his classmates and will always reach out to someone who seems sad and offer them help. Nothing could make me more proud of him.
3. Most recently was The Mountain Story. Just couldn't get into it.
4. My son's championship hockey game, and a visit with my parents.

Book - Midwinter Blood. Will true love survive multiple reincarnations?

Movie - The Princess Bride. As you wish.

Song - Love You to Death by Type O Negative. I love me a gothic metal love song! I wish that I had Peter Steele's voice.
