A Distant Melody by Sarah Sundin; a new author for me, but one that I think will become a favorite! This is historical fiction set during WW2.


My name is Shari; I have been a Sparker since July 2006, and living with Stage IV breast cancer since 2007.

Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

Still Foolin' Em by Billy Crystal.
So far the funny parts do not out-weigh the vulgarity. Chapters 1 - 4 have pretty much all been about sex. Admittedly, some if it is funny, but mostly it's a little pathetic that a bright comedian in his mid-60s hasn't found more in life to laugh about. Giving it one more chapter to be funny about something else (anything else!!!) or I call it quits. I hardly ever give up on a book. C'mon Billy!!

An old paperback left in the break room at work - very funny & a quick read.
HURRICAN HANNAH by Sue Civil-Brown


It's about a woman pilot who has to make an emergency landing on an island with a lovesick alligator, a cast of peculiar islanders who hold "elections" by playing poker, a casino owner & developer, and an angry airstrip owner where she landed - he's the love interest.

My library reserves arrived, so I suddenly find myself with four more books on my plate:

Not enough hours in the day for all these books!

Making Waves (Lake Manawa Summers Book #1) by Lorna Seilstad.

Historical fiction, set in 1895 at Lake Manawa Resort, known at that time as the "Coney Island of the West." It also has a lot of humor in it. A fun read perfect for summer!


My name is Shari; I have been a Sparker since July 2006, and living with Stage IV breast cancer since 2007.

Copper Sun by Sharon Draper

Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance!

Slim is where I wanted to be in 201o & 2011! Never happened, plateaued for a long time and gave up... got off track, but never left, so am back on track again!!! Make 2012 my year! So far, did finally lose 25 lbs. over the summer, but have found about 11 of it so far, it didn't hide good enough...
and lost it again in 2013... going down to 175 this fall, and staying there...this time!

"The Secret Keeper" by Beverly Lewis

Heather

With my feet on the ground and my heart attuned, I will reach for the stars (Camp Motto from Camp Crestridge for Girls in NC).

The sovereign Lord is my strength. He makes my feet like the feet of the deer and enables me to go on the hike. Hab 3:19

The Willpower Instinct: How Self-Control Works, Why It Matters, and What You Can Do To Get More of It

Not about weight loss/maintenance specifically, but definitely applicable to a lot of the challenges we face.

Starting Weight: 260 lbs. (November 2010)
Quasi-Maintenance: 165 lbs. (June 2011)
Goal Weight: 150 lbs. (reached December 8, 2011)

Size 22W to Size 4

Currently maintaining within 5 lbs. (+ or -) of goal. I weigh daily, but also use a tape measure and the fit of my clothes to guage how well I'm doing.

The Amityville Horror.

Some say it was a true story. While I believe the young man murdered his parents and siblings there (he's doing six consecutive life sentences in prison), I'm inclined to believe what I read in Snopes.com about the haunting phenomena: They're probably fiction.

The Tutor's Daughter by Julie Klassen; historical fiction set in Regency Era England, and one of my favorite authors!


My name is Shari; I have been a Sparker since July 2006, and living with Stage IV breast cancer since 2007.

Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

Intriguing story; would prefer the PG-13 version if there were such a thing. Don't tell me how it ends! I'm almost done.

I just finished The Fault in our Stars by John Green; amazing!
Even though I am far from my teen years, as someone living with stage IV cancer, the story really resonated with me.

Now I am starting Under a Blackberry Moon by Serena B. Miller.

I also just started The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. I am hoping to see the movie, but I almost always prefer to read the book first when it's movie based on a book.
