Just a heads up that I'm going dark for several weeks. I may still update posts/challenges but there will be no new content, not even Thursdays.

My Mom died and I'm taking each day as it comes, plus helping my Dad go through her stuff.

Jan 16 update: Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, is in the hospital for bypass surgery

Feb 19 update: MIL is home now :-D and slowly getting better. I'm still helping my Dad with Mom's stuff but since my brother is out of town, I'm spending 4 nights at his house every week for a month. It's MUCH closer to Dad's and they do meals together and hang out.

Mar 8 update: I'm having a blast with my Dad. MIL has gone back to the hospital

Mar 29 update: MIL is home but not doing well.

Apr 9 update: SIL is nurse and has taken time off work to care for MIL who is basically receiving hospice care at home.

I'll see you in May . . . April 23 update: My Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, died yesterday.

Ooo, Cowboys and Aliens! I'd like to see the film but would even more like to read the graphic novel. I'll look forward to your review.

Happy reading!

I liked the film version of Cowboy vs. Aliens. I know it isn't getting great reviews but I thought it was fun.

Thanks so much for joining in the challenge this year. I hope that whatever you choose to read turns out to be wonderful.

Yvonne said...

Good luck with the challenge! I wish I had more time and I'd join in too. Haunting Jordan was really good.

Kailana said...

I would be curious to see what the Cowboys and Aliens book is like. I saw the movie and while it was good, I didn't love it...

I haven't read any of the books on your list. I'll be curious to read your thoughts on them.
