3 things that are making me happy lately ...
1. Having an excuse (i.e., my YA lit class) to lie on the couch and read "Shiver" for several hours on Friday. :D I'll be booktalking it in class this evening. While the book reminded me of "Twilight" in some ways, it is an excellent read in its own right -- romantic, suspenseful, and intense. I also think the pragmatic, capable and stoic protagonist Grace would probably appeal to those who don't care for Twilight's Bella. After finishing the book on Friday afternoon, I immediately marched over to my computer, pulled up the library's online catalog, and put in a request for the second book, "Linger." If that's not a good recommendation for "Shiver," I don't know what is.
2. Gummy DINOSAURS!! My only gripe was that they need to come in a bigger bag, and they should offer a better mix of colors/flavors. Green is my favorite, but there were only two green gummies in the bag. :)
3. I got my brows redone on Thursday. Such an affordable way to feel like a million bucks. :)
