Lady Smoke

by Laura Sebastian

Theo is on Smoke, Dragonbane’s ship, with her Shadows and Soren. They are all working towards gathering allies to get her palace and reign back. Dynamic, strong characters plus the world building make Lady Smoke interesting to read and the uncertainty of Theo’s future drew me into the story even more. The characters’ backgrounds are intense and built fascinating characters that keep growing and stay steadfast by Theo’s side. Amazing strength and loyalty create unparalleled love for the kingdom they are all trying to get back. As the story carries on, more atrocities are brought to light and make the group even more determined! I don’t want to spoil anything but I’m thoroughly enjoying this series and anxiously awaiting the third book! 5 stars for great world building and strong, dynamic characters!

Boring should be for tunnels not for your summer

SuperUser Account 0 0 Article rating: No rating

While geared toward parents this article gives you some great ideas on some ways to spice up your summer.  Just sitting inside glued to a screen isn't going to make you any memories, well not unless you count memorizing seasons of netflix shows.  So here are just a few of the great suggestions that the linked article points out as things to spice up your summer and make it more exciting.

  • Teach yourself some new dance moves (learn to moonwalk, polka or pirouette)
  • Re-create a childhood photo (you're a lot bigger now)
  • Learn to cook something complicated, like macaroons or baked Alaska
  • Do something kind for someone—a neighbor, a family member, or a complete stranger
  • Relax in a hammock
  • Learn a new language
  • Write letters (not emails, but actual pen-and-ink notes!)

All these and more are within the article linked in the "read more" link.  Resources for most these activities can be found here at the library.
