Haunted Teachers: True Ghost Stories

From Gina Scaglione
author: Zullo, Allan
Haunted Teachers: True Ghost Stories
The adventures continued with haunted teacher stories.  These ones seemed a bit more frightening than the last set I wrote about.  I definitely think that these ones need to be for the tween set, rather than the younger crowd.  I actually spooked myself with one of these stories:)  Enjoy.

Dead Reckoning

From Robin McCracken
author: Harris, Charlaine
Dead Reckoning
In book 11, with Sookie’s history of finding trouble and somewhat causing it, she finds herself once again in trouble again. With Merlotte’s firebombing, someone trying to kill her, and getting involved with Eric & Pam’s plot to kill their new master, makes for an interesting read.  Keeps “True Blood” going and going and going…..

Skipping Christmas

From Elaine Pasquali
author: Grisham, John
 Skipping Christmas
This novel is a marked departure from Grisham’s other books.  Grisham uses Luther Krank’s (crank?)jaundiced eyes to take a tongue-in-cheek look at the frenzy, chaos, and commercialism surrounding Christmas.  With the departure of his daughter to Peru for a year in the Peace Corps, Luther convinces his wife to skip Christmas and take a cruise instead.  Luther’s attempts to march to a different drummer encounter obstacles, but will he utimately succeed?  To find out, you’ll have to read the book.  This book is not only a light-hearted summer read but the power of suggestion may also have a cooling effect on a hot summer day.

Bossypants

From Catherine Costanzo
author: Fey, Tina
Bossypants
This was a book of comedy written by Tina Fey telling of her start in the business, and detailing her journey through stage and screen.  It was interesting to find out that some of the things that she talks about were real events in her life.  Also, it gave some insight as to how the TV shows etc. work behind the scenes.  Light reading, and interesting if you’re at all interested in her work.
