Notes from Melissa

Spring is finally here! The temperatures actually rose to the low 60’s this weekend and I am almost ready to break out my flip flops! …. Though I do hear that more snow is in the forecast for this week:(   Not much added to the bookshelf this week…but the book I did get is one I am really looking forward to reading.With warm weather around the corner I won’t mind a little extra time to enjoy it.  Do you have any plans now that Spring has sprung?

    I heard snow in the forecast too. I’m so done with winter. I don’t care if it snows as long as it stays warm at least most days. I have never heard of Doomseeds. I see it’s the second book. Did you like the first.

  2. Hmmm, wonder what you thought of Plus One. I have it and I thought it sounded good but it’s not getting good reviews 🙁 Eh, who cares, right?!?!?!

    And it seems like Spring want’s to come but can’t. We’ve got the same crazy weather as Jenea. I saw snow flakes this morning.

    Hope you’re doing great otherwise!! Sorry I haven’t visited in a while 🙁

  3. The Doorknob Society looks interesting to me! Glad you enjoyed some Spring. I don’t even remember what that looks like anymore. I am glad I am moving next month, though I doubt the frozen piles of snow outside my window and all over my property will be gone by then 🙁
    Have a great week reading!

  4. That reminds me – I need to read Plus One. A friend was nice enough o loan it to me.

    We hit the mid 80’s and humidity already. I jus planted a few flowers for my returning butterflies.

      I wore my flip flops twice and then had to break out the socks and shoes again 🙁 Hope you enjoyed Frozen!

      I’m really torn about Allegiant (luckily I managed to avoid spoilers)…it definitely left me thinking (partially thinking that I wish I hadn’t read it before seeing the movie).but thinking nonetheless. Can’t say I was 100% happy with the ending…and usually I tend to like ending even though lots of reviewers don’t (like Requiem which I thought was perfect) Divergent was def. the best in the series…

      Actually Botanicaust has great reviews (I gave it full marks myself) the sequel only has one review and that from someone who admits that they didn’t read the first in the series, so I don’t place too much stock in that!
