For the first time in a long time I will not open WAYRW with a comment about the rain. Sorry to have bored you. I'm sure very soon it will be complaints about the heat!
Last week the story I chose for Short Story Monday was called Cicada Holiday. It piqued my interest and I ordered the related book for a great price- only $2.99 on Kindle. It's called Cicada and it's a YA story, not a vampire or dystopian though- aliens! It's a little freaky so far but not so much that I can't read it in the dark. I've never really read an alien story before, so it's new to me!
I parcelled out some magazines to my kids this weekend. Spinky has Chickadee, the Best Buddies issue, and Domba has Chirp, The Night Issue. They are loving them, as usual.
