Ça fait longtemps qu'on ne s'est pas vu! That’s French for “long time no see” or something like that…I don’t know. I don’t speak Spanish. I hope you guys all had/will have a happy Halloween, whenever that was/is now because of the power outages.
Did I miss any sporting events since June? What's that? The Olympics? Never heard of it... So you tell me the Indians had a historic collapse into last place and the Reds made history by being the first team to lose a 5 game series in the playoffs after being up 2-0? Good thing I missed all that, it sounds awful! At least football is back in full swing with the Buckeyes currently undefeated (even though they’re banned from bowl games), while the Browns and Bengals are, well, they're the Browns and Bengals... It hasn’t really been a banner year for Ohio sports teams, maybe the Cavs or Buckeye basketball teams can turn that fortune around now that both teams have started playing again!
Since it is the Halloween season, what better time is there to tell you guys about a book with zombies and witches in it than now? Christopher Krovatin's book Gravediggers: Mountain of Bones takes place in the remote mountainous woods of Montana. While on a school trip, three students get separated from their classmates. They must struggle together to try to survive on their own in the wild. As if their situation wasn't bad enough with the cold, the rain, the isolation and the wild animals, things take a serious turn for the worse when they start to notice certain paranormal mayhem all around them. Now, in order to get back to their classmates, not only do they have to find the correct trail back, they must also find a way to bring an end to a centuries old curse! I really enjoyed this book and think you guys might too. It looks like this will be the first book in a new series starring these three students, meaning there could be many more adventures with these interesting characters in the future. Also, even though this book deals with some pretty intense themes with horrible creatures, it really isn't that scary. So you don't necessarily have to worry about looking like a baby when you're reading this book. Unless that’s the sort of thing you’re in to, then by all means, cry away.
