Let It Snow, Let It Snow...

With weather reports that Houston might get snow and the temperatures dropping, I’ve been in the mood to curl up with a good book and a cup of hot cocoa. The list below includes books that take place in winter, in cold places, or just remind me of the cold. Brrr!

Werewolves Rock!

I must admit I have been in love with werewolves ever since I saw Oz on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Unlike the undead world of vampires, werewolves can walk in the human world without being noticed.

I'm Thankful For...

Books that make me laugh out loud!

Do you love Twilight or hate it?

* I love it! * I HATE it! * I don't really care either way

Love it or Hate it?

Every time my teens come into a program one topic inevitably comes up: Twilight by Stephanie Meyer.  The words hate and love come up equally in the conversation as different teens "express" there opinions of the series.  This is happening only more frequently since the second movie is about to come out and the hype is reaching an all time high...again.  So the figh-er, "discussion" continues.  Do you love it or hate it? 

Gleek Out!: Beyond the Glee Soundtrack

Even though most of the songs have been available online since the show started, I love having everything on the official CD. But what do you do when you have all the songs memorized? Go back to the source material by the original artists!
