We're having electrical work done, so I'll see if I can squeeze this in before they turn the power off!

Kids' and Young Adult Books (* denotes Reading Olympics book):

*All Alone in the Universe by Lynne Rae Perkins: Booooooring! Changing friendships of thirteen year olds. Just nothing new.
Ottoline and the Yellow Cat by Chris Riddell: Sort of the second coming of Eloise, with a precocious kid and absent parents. Kind of strange, but the illustrations make up for it.
Paddington Here and Now by Michael Bond: I read all the Paddington books when I was little, so I couldn't pass up a new Paddington book. He's still up to his old bumbling ways!
*Life in the Fat Lane by Cherie Bennett: A high school beauty queen suddenly starts getting fatter and fatter, no matter how much she exercises or how little she eats. Uninspired young adult melodrama.

Adult Books:

Evan Help Us by Rhys Bowen: Another from the Evan Evans mystery series. Still enjoying them!
Made in the USA by Billie Letts: The star of our show! Fifteen year old Lutie and her younger brother find themselves all alone, so they set off to Vegas in search of their father.
