184 books down, 18 days to go!

 Hey All!  I finished two more books.
The first one is called Only the Good Spy Young by Ally Carter. 
This books is about a girl named Cammie "The Chameleon" Morgan, who is seventeen years old and goes to a school for spies-in-training.  But she is no ordinary super-smart, super-spy student.  Nope, she is a super-smart super-spy student that The Circle, an evil group of spies, wants to hunt down.  Yeah, intense.  At the same time she finds out her beloved teacher was/is part of the not-so-beloved Circle, and is now being hunted down by the C.I.A., who are good spies.  But this was no ordinary super-amazing-spy-teacher-who's-really-actually-an-evil-spy-who-betrayed-you.  Mr. Solomon was the super-amazing-spy-teacher-who's-really-actually-an-evil-spy-who-betrayed-you that happened to be Cammie's Dad's Best Friend.  Cammie's Dad is dead.  And apparently evil Mr. Solomon killed him.  So naturally she had to go on a hunt with her "three best friends in the whole world" (I stopped counting how many time that quote came up in this book after 5) to find her late father's and Mr. S's diaries, with all of their juicy little secrets.   And at the same time, Cammie just so happens to be falling in love with/ hating an evil woman's son, Zach, who went to the same spy school/assassin school for boys that Cammie's father and  Joe Solomon went to.
Yikes.  An okay book, the fourth in a series.  Age group: 10-14  A little bit of an immature book, but a good easy read over all.
I also read Forget You.  Now I don't have much time, I have to go soon,  so this will be short.   Basically Zoey has a complicated life (a dad who gets a 24 year old pregnant, a jock boyfriend, an unstable mom, a dark kid -Doug- she sees too much of, you know- the works).  But when she gets in a car accident and can't remember what happened from the night of the crash, she is hopelessly confused.  Her boyfriend is avoiding her and mysterious Doug is, well, not.  He seems like he knows something... about her.  Something she can't seem to remember, though she knows he was there the night of the crash (he pulled her out of the trashed car).   Basically, in the end, she falls in love with the right character.  Ta-Da.  This was actually a pretty good book.  Age Group: 12+  Again, overall a good book.

Mosquito's are attracted to the color blue twice as much as to any other color.
 Love, Elizabeth

  1. You are SOOOO close, Elizabeth! With Zoe's pending reviews (Zoe? Oh, Zo-ey?), you are sure to make your target now.
