bookgoonie Recap

bookgoonie’s World

  • Back from visiting my sister. Exposed to Hand-Foot-Mouth disease. Yipee! Luckily we didn’t get. My mom did not succumb to the intense heat of DC as I forced to go see memorials on the evening trolley tour.
  • Started following the Paleo food principles. It is going well and I’m feeling better. Also, some of those pesky pounds are coming off. I haven’t been able to budge the scale in a good while, so this feels really good. 4 pounds this week.
  • It was nice to have a week of working out and mostly reading.
  • Friday, July 20th is the YA Crush Tournament vote between Ash from The Iron Fey and some other guy. Make sure you Vote.

  • Reading Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. Jamie gets yummier. This is the last week of the Read-a-long. I think I might cry. Luckily there is a new one in August. Look at my sidebar. Woohoo!
  • Finished Stupid Fast by Geoff Herbach. It was good, odd boy read.
  • Finished Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins. I knew it would be great and it DID NOT DISAPPOINT. Cricket, I’ll love you forever.
  • Finished Dreamfever (Fever #4) by Karen Marie Moning. OMG! Finally what I’ve been anxiously waiting for. Give me more, give me more!
  • Listening to A Perfect Blood (The Hollows #10) by Kim Harrison.

  1. The drama going on in the blogosphere is ridiculous. I read about it, but I try not to post about it on my blog because I feel like it drags everything up again and I don’t think that’s the best way to deal with it.

    The Paleo thing sounds interesting. I’ve found that the best thing for me to cut down on the carbs and increase protein. I lost the most inches that way. Cutting carbs makes me feel better and keeps my emotions from going all crazy, too. Carbs are deliciously evil.

  2. Is the Paleo diet in any way related to the Paleocene? Just curious. Hey! I guess I can used the interweb thingy and look it up myself!

    I’m trying to remember what about Dreamfever could have excited you so much. Shadowfever has forever skewed my opinion of this series.

    Thanks for the link up!

    • I don’t know if they are related. Paleo is kind of eating like cavemen. No grains & dairy.

      Finally Barrons & Mac get together under warped circumstances.

  3. OMG! Greasing up some were? Like Alcide? Suuuuuuuuuure thing. Sign me up.

    DREAMFEVER! OMG! I might go read the beginning of that book, real quick…lol
