Weekly Round-Up is my wrap-up of last week's activities and includes what I'm reading this week, reviews I've posted, books in the mail and anything else of interest plus From the Library, my weekly listing of what I've checked out from the library.This week I'm reading Behemoth (Westerfeld) and Wrapped (Bradbury). I'm listening to Under the Jolly Roger (Meyer).
Last week I started Behemoth which is slow going for me for some reason, but I did fit in The Tales of Beedle the Bard (Rowling) because it is short. I finished The Curse of the Blue Tattoo (Meyer) on audio.
Other reviews posted: A Tale of Two Castles (Levine)
Abandon by Meg Cabot
Though she tries returning to the life she knew before the accident, Pierce can't help but feel at once a part of this world, and apart from it. Yet she's never alone . . . because someone is always watching her. Escape from the realm of the dead is impossible when someone there wants you back.
But now she's moved to a new town. Maybe at her new school, she can start fresh. Maybe she can stop feeling so afraid.
Only she can't. Because even here, he finds her. That's how desperately he wants her back. She knows he's no guardian angel, and his dark world isn't exactly heaven, yet she can't stay away . . . especially since he always appears when she least expects it, but exactly when she needs him most.
But if she lets herself fall any further, she may just find herself back in the one place she most fears: the Underworld.
