Just me talking about costume-y kind of stuff
Book for July
You might be wondering why I've skipped to the July book. Our book for May, Big Little Liars, is so popular right now that I'm 14th on the list to get it. Our library doesn't have a copy of our book for June, One Thousand White Women, other than the book on tape version. I can't listen to books on tape, they put me to sleep. I tried that once with Stephen King driving from El Paso to Austin and almost had a wreck. So I've skipped over those two books to read the July selection, The Mark of the Dragonfly by Jaleigh Johnson. It's a YA steampunk fantasy. The cover art is the best thing about this book. I read a lot of YA, and after Harry Potter, everything else pales in comparison. However, this pales in comparison to Rick Riordan, Hunger Games, and Divergent. I just never got into it. Poor girl from the poor part of the country must make amazing journey and fight terrible odds to help another girl, who has amnesia, get back home. They make friends with a guy who's magic and another guy who turns into a big bat. The poor girl finds out she's magic, her friend finds out she's a robot. The happy ending sees them getting jobs working on a train with the boys. Really? Like I said, the pretty picture on the front is the best part of this book.
