Ok, so the title of this book makes me think of The Wizard of Oz: "I'll get you my pretty, and your little dog too!"

But the book (and series) has nothing to do with that. Pretties is the second of four (so far) in the Uglies series-- a dystopian series where people grow up ugly (aka normal) and then have a surgery when they are 16 to make them pretty (aka perfect... and really ditzy).

It's a good read, but sadly, I haven't finished the book yet! Agh this is cutting it close. But I wanted to blog today so that I will be completely caught up (sans 150 pages of my book... I can do it!)

My birthday was yesterday and it was wonderful, but it was really busy so I've been playing catch up on errands and work etc. Tonight after my husband and I ran an errand he said "so, whats for dinner?" and I had completely forgotten that normal people cook food, not eat out for every meal like I had been for the past two days.

Luckily I have mad cooking skills, so that mixed with an impulse purchase of tortellini created a delicious dinner.


  1. Loved the "uglies" series....there are two more. "specials" and "extras". Love reading your snipets for each book. Might just take some recommendationa for my summer reads.

  2. Jess- please do! And I would love to get recommendations from you too :) Just picked up Specials from the library, excited to read it sometime this week!
