Friday Linkups: Gilda Joyce, Psychic Investigator
It's Friday linkup time! I'm linking up with the Book Blogger Hop hosted by Coffee Addicted Writer, Book Beginnings of Fridays hosted by Rose City Reader, and the Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice
This Week's Book Blogger Hop Question:
Would you take a book with you when you go to your family's Thanksgiving gathering/dinner?
It depends. If I was staying overnight than I absolutely would but if I was just going for the day I wouldn't. At least with my family Thanksgiving is always a bit of a madhouse and I always end up rushing around helping finish up last minute details. I might bring a book for the Tornado to keep him occupied but not one for me.
In the back row of Mrs. Weinstock's eighth-grade English classroom, Gilda Joyce chewed on a lock of her dark hair and pretended to listen as her classmates described their plans for the summer on the last day of the school year.
I think I'd probably zone out too. A whole classroom full on 8th graders discussing summer plans one after the other sounds like it could drift into tedious!
Dad: Sorry, kiddo. I got here just in time to meet him, but we decided not to wake you up.
Me: I don't believe you
I'm not here yet so I don't know exactly what's going on but this is a transcript of Gilda's memories and this one is about Santa Claus. Gilda isn't buying her dad's explanations!
This is a bit of an unusual pick for me so I'm curious to see what I think of it. I know the later books in the series seem to have been better received. What do you think? Keep reading?
