I am having a freaking FABULOUS reading streak right now! Not only have I been reading some wonderful books, when I run across one I am not into I am not getting one of those reader guilt twinges as I toss it to the side.
Since I don’t have time enough to tell you about all of the great books I have been reading I narrowed it down to four after much deliberation.
This story collection is about people. It is about a woman that gets a job at a sex toy shop to avoid a law career. It is about a girl who smuggles fancy underwear to her mother in Mexico for her to resell on the beach. It is about a smart girl with a bad reputation being teased and slut shamed at her high school. It is pretty great.
Susan walks into a psychic’s office and tells a pretty crazy story – that her creepy old house and the ghosts it contains are making her stepson psychotic. The psychic, who is not really a psychic, is left to figure out what is really going on and how to help Susan and her family (and herself).
The infamous gun-slingers Charlie and Eli Sisters are off on another job – to ‘take care of’ Hermann Warm. This job is not nearly as straight-forward as they had hoped and it makes Eli really question the life has a hired gun. FYI – this is much more funny that it sounds.
After leaving NASA Randall started a hugely successful website where he answers any all of types of fantastical science questions with sarcasm and drawings. It is pretty great. Here are some of the things you will learn: What if everyone only had one soulmate? From what height would you need to drop a steak to ensure it was cooked by the time it reached the ground? What would happen if the moon went away?
