About this author

I share my home with my husband Steve and children Sarah, Maggie, and Dylan. I am a high school English teacher. I give a lot of four and five-star reviews because if I see a book is coasting on a 1, 2, or sometimes even a 3 in time to stop reading it, I do. Life's too short not to read spectacular books.

Ratings:
5 stars = I loved it
4 stars = I liked it
3 stars = It was OK
2 stars = I didn't like it
1 star = I hated it

I like the beach okay, but only for about an hour or two. Then I want to go home. I don’t like traveling much, especially not when it’s hot. And I loathe hot weather.

I love this book. It's hard to pick a favorite in the series, but this one is up there. I like the Marauders' backstory, and this book is the last fun book before Voldemort returns and everything gets a lot more serious.

F. Scott Fitzgerald
“His heart beat faster and faster as Daisy’s white face came up to his own. He knew that when he kissed this girl, and forever wed his unutterable visions to her perishable breath, his mind would never romp again like the mind of God. So he waited, listening for a moment longer to the tuning fork that had been struck upon a star. Then he kissed her. At his lips’ touch she blossomed like a flower and the incarnation was complete.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

Jennifer Thanks for adding me as a friend! :-)


Michael Moore I read Ross' the rest is Noise and liked it. I started buying the recommended music and the performances he recommends in the back. I learned a lot I didn't know. I also read his NYer columns. See you at GCTE.
