It is Only October and There is a Lot of Snow

I am reading Need by Carrie Jones. What's her name … Zara, actually that's a great name, apologies for experiencing brain collapse right in the middle of a blog post … but now that I'm reading this book, I can't remember why I HAD to get it from the library … what is wrong with my brain?????

Okay. Zara has just arrived in Bangor, Maine. It is only October and there is a lot of snow.

I like the scene where she slides on the ice and hugs the tree. Yes, I could see that happening to me. Her grandmother is feisty—an EMT, how awesome--and I know her Dad is dead (or something), but she doesn't seem to think of much else—at all. I like Issie, so far, and yes, Ian is weird. Maybe it's the banana face.

I have no idea where this is going, but one of my friends on Goodreads LOVES it, so I'm going to hang in there. It's not that I'm not enjoying this book, it's not that at all … It's just that I checked out way too many books from the library over the past six weeks and now, after all that print, I'm dying to get back to my Kindle.

What can I say? I'm a truly-deeply-converted e-reader.


  1. It took me a while to convert and now I can't pick--but my book is only out on Kindle so I better make up my mind. LOL

  2. It actually took me a while to convert, too! At first I was dual, but somewhere along the way, probably about the year-and-a-half mark, I noticed myself deleting my B&N coupons that were only for print books:( It kind of surprised me, but then I realized, I was fully converted:) I got my first Nook in early 2010, I thought I was a late-adopter. Last year I got a Kindle Fire, and now I am eyeing those Kindle Paperwhites to read outside; my husband reads on his iPad. Sometimes I read on my iPhone. So yeah, no more new print books for us….i do check out books from the library though. I'm trying to check out ebooks, but it hasn't worked out yet, i.e. a book I wanted is available in digital format. But our local library is growing their ebook catalogue, so hopefully, soon!

    Thank you for stopping by, nice to hear from you!
