Good evening, everyone! Just a quick FYI before I mention books or awards...my kids were super great today, my house is clean, and somehow I managed to jot down three-hundred words for WIP. So, in other words, there's no sugar coated version of Mommy Dearest post for you tonight. Awe, shucks! Nope, not even a single timeout, although kiddo #4 (a.k.a. "Little Boss") treaded on thin ice for a solid hour. She's adorable all right, but sneakier than a fox.
Now, moving right along to this week's recommended book for Humpday Reads, I suggest the following:
Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver - "You'll have no choice but to tear through this book!"—Jay Asher, author of the New York Times bestseller Thirteen Reasons Why What if you had only one day to live? What would you do? Who would you kiss? And how far would you go to save your own life?
Samantha Kingston has it all: the world's most crush-worthy boyfriend, three amazing best friends, and first pick of everything at Thomas Jefferson High—from the best table in the cafeteria to the choicest parking spot. Friday, February 12, should be just another day in her charmed life. Instead, it turns out to be her last. Then she gets a second chance. Seven chances, in fact. Reliving her last day during one miraculous week, she will untangle the mystery surrounding her death-and discover the true value of everything she is in danger of losing.(Publishers Weekly)
And thanks to my friend and fellow blogger, Julie Musil, I was given this lovely award on Mother's Day and want to pass it along to the following women:

On a final note, our family is going out of town for a wedding this weekend, so it may be Sunday before I post again on Head in the Clouds. I hope you all have a fantabulous weekend! Tory
