The Adoration of Jenna Fox  

What I'm doing: thinking about what I shall watch on the good ol' drv when I'm done here
What still need to do tonight: laundry, bath, and clean up the kitchen (oh joy)
What I'm reading: the 2nd book in the Generation Dead series (I can't remember the title and I'm too lazy to go look)

Since I just recently complained about sometimes being let down by highly anticipated novels (saraandstaci.blogspot.com), I thought I'd pop in and say that I just finished one fabulous book.  The Adoration of Jenna Fox has been out for a while, and for some reason, I just finally got around to reading it.  I should have read it a long time ago.  It was wonderful.  I literally laughed out loud and then shed a few tears at the end.  That's when you know it's a good book.  If an author can make you laugh and cry, he or she is going something right. 

And again, I am listing another sci-fi book amongst my favs.  I keep claiming that I don't like it, but I'm up to 5 sci-fi books that I love.  Maybe I do like it.  Within reason of course. 

Funniest moment in the book:  Jenna wakes up from a coma and can't remember much of anything and though she can still speak, she has forgotten the meaning of many words.  She overhears a guy call another guy a dickhead and decides that dickhead must mean
annoying.  Later that evening, when her grandmother is getting on her nerves, Jenna tells her to stop being such a dickhead.  And of course, from the look on her grandmother's face, Jenna quickly realizes that there must be more to that word than she thought.  Too funny. 

 I highly recommend it to anyone who reads.  It's a good one!
