  1. Wow! Our kids are the same ages-my son will be 15 in August and my daughter also turned 13 in March. It is definitely like living in the Twilight Zone- where all the food disappears at an amazing rate

  2. Happy Birthday to your son, I love having grown up children, toddler years (well one toddler in particular) were a special kind of hell in our house and teenage years … \”mothers of teenagers know why some animals eat their young\” springs to mind LOLI've got The Firebird on my TBR stack but I really want to read The Winter Sea first. Have a great week and happy reading 🙂

  3. Thanks! I'm looking forward to having more grown up children as well, lol. My oldest is 21 and while I miss her I'm glad she's flown. I'm sure you know what I mean!I enjoyed The Firebird a lot and it worked well as a stand alone, thankfully!

  4. Impressive. You are indeed The Relentless Reader! 😉 Myself, only managing about a book a week while Under the Dome … haha.

  5. LOL, I thought the name was quite fitting 😉 Under the Dome is giant. During the first half I tried to read a few other books at the same time. It didn't go very well. During the 2nd half I read it exclusively.
