Gotta show some 'tocks.
I'm currently reading THE WINNER'S CURSE by Marie Rutkoski. This is the first of a YA dystopian trilogy. Here's a description:
They were never meant to be together. As a general's daughter, seventeen-year-old Kestrel enjoys an extravagant and privileged life. Arin has nothing but the clothes on his back. Then Kestrel makes an impulsive decision that binds Arin to her. Though they try to fight it, they can't help but fall in love. In order to be together, they must betray their people . . . but to be loyal to their country, they must betray each other. Set in a new world, The Winner's Curse is a story of rebellion, duels, ballroom dances, wicked rumors, dirty secrets, and games where everything is at stake, and the gamble is whether you will keep your head or lose your heart.
6 days until the season 4 premiere of Arrow.
Mmmmm, not much else going on. Walk dogs, work, leisure, bed.
Oh the Steelers play tonight. Pray for them for the sake of peace in my house; Big Ben is out. Oh sigh.
And, no, I'm not excited about the plethora of pumpkin now. Blech, blech, blech.
