CAUGHT IN THE ACT
Olivia Bennett is not having a happy birthday. Instead of blowing out her twenty-nine candles, she’s stuck in jail, caught red-handed in a graffiti incident that (perhaps) involved one too many strawberry margaritas. Worst idea ever. The only bright side is that she ended up in the strong arms of the most gorgeous lawman she’s ever seen.

Manga Review: Limit V 3 by Keiko Suenobu

Contains Spoilers

Review:

It’s been a while since I read the first two volumes of LIMIT, but I didn’t have any problems jumping back into the series again.  This is a survival story; a bus of high schoolers is headed to the mountains for a camping trip.  There’s a terrible accident, and the bus plunges off the road and down the mountainside.  There’s only a handful of survivors, and they are all girls.  Bickering and power struggles begin at once, and Morishige, the only one with a weapon, quickly takes charge.  Morishige has issues.  She has grudges against the other girls, and establishes herself as the leader of her battered, hungry, and terrified classmates.  When Isui changes to power dynamic by running off with Morishige’s scythe, there’s a rebellion against Morishige’s cruel leadership.

The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves – Nesting

The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba of The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.  This is a weekly meme where we can share news of the week and highlight new books received.

My hip replacement surgery is a little over a week out, and I’m freaking out.  I’ve spent the last two weekends building a little nest, in hopes that I’ll be comforted by new surroundings.  We purchased new fluffy rugs for the bathroom, new sheets for the spare bedroom because I know that I’m going to want to be left alone for the first few days, and some snack foods I don’t usually indulge in.   I ordered a box of new chews for the dogs so, hopefully, they will be occupied while I’m recuperating.   I still need some sweats or loose lounge pants, and I’ll need to make some food and freeze it so I have easy access to meals.  Other than that, I guess I’m good to go – ugh.
