From Goodreads:

All the news that’s not fit to print! Browse through this fascinating compendium of the best of the Weekly World News and you’ll never look at the world the same way again.

Admit it. You’ve sneaked a peek at the supermarket checkout. Where else could you find the scoop on which senators are aliens, or Saddam and Osama’s torrid love affair? Serious newshounds know the Weekly World News (which counts over a million beings as readers) broke the story that Elvis still lives, but it also has exclusives on what kind of pizza was served at Jesus’ last supper, who’s the father of the Loch Ness monster’s baby, and (of course) the various escapades of Bat Boy, the half man/half bat found in a West Virginia cave almost 15 years ago. For the dedicated follower of the fantastic, and for the uninitiated too, Bat Boy Lives! contains all these vital dispatches and much more. Because the truth…is in here.

They Might Be Giants – Never Go to Work

I guess technically this one is for kids… I’m assuming that you know your days of the week. I still think its fun and since I am supreme commander, what I say goes. Of course my three-year-old son doesn’t think so, but I’m still working on him.

Last on Earth by Marilyn Kaye

1. The Vanishing
2. The Convergence
3. The Return

Twenty-five high school seniors emerge from their basement geometry class to an eerie silence in a deserted school. Outside, empty buildings, stores, restaurants, and abandoned cars line once crowded streets. Stunned disbelief is followed by alarm, curiosity, sorrow…and the horrifying realization that, for better or worse, they have inherited the Earth.

Runaways by Brian K. Vaughan

From me:

This is a great comic book series. Some of the teen heroes are aliens, and some are humans.

From Goodreads:

They Might Be Giants – Birdhouse in Your Soul

The Host – by Stephenie Meyer

From me:

I loved this book!!! It was about 650 pages, and I read it in two days because I absolutely loved it. Please don’t be frightened by how long it is. It is a little slow at first, but it picks up towards the middle. Plus it made me cry! You know that its a good book if it makes you cry! 🙂

From Goodreads:

The author of the Twilight series of # 1 bestsellers delivers her brilliant first novel for adults: a gripping story of love and betrayal in a future with the fate of humanity at stake.

Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away. The earth has been invaded by a species that take over the minds of their human hosts while leaving their bodies intact, and most of humanity has succumbed.

Wanderer, the invading “soul” who has been given Melanie’s body, knew about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the too vivid memories. But there was one difficulty Wanderer didn’t expect: the former tenant of her body refusing to relinquish possession of her mind.

Melanie fills Wanderer’s thoughts with visions of the man Melanie loves-Jared, a human who still lives in hiding. Unable to separate herself from her body’s desires, Wanderer yearns for a man she’s never met. As outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off to search for the man they both love.

Featuring what may be the first love triangle involving only two bodies, THE HOST is a riveting and unforgettable novel that will bring a vast new readership to one of the most compelling writers of our time.

They Might Be Giants – Ana Ng

If I haven’t mentioned it before, I LOVE They Might Be Giants. I’ve seen them in concert more than any other band…. still not much, maybe between 10-15 times. Still that’s a lot for a girl who doesn’t go to concerts much. They’re SO much fun! And now you can share the joy. 😉

I like them sooo much that I’ve decided that July shall be TMBG (They Might Be Giants) month. Just because they are so darned happy!

Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer

Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer
ISBN: 0152058265

From the site Goodreads: It’s almost the end of Miranda’s sophomore year in high school, and her journal reflects the busy life of a typical teenager: conversations with friends, fights with mom, and fervent hopes for a driver’s license. When Miranda first begins hearing the reports of a meteor on a collision course with the moon, it hardly seems worth a mention in her diary. But after the meteor hits, pushing the moon off its axis and causing worldwide earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanoes, all the things Miranda used to take for granted begin to disappear. Food and gas shortages, along with extreme weather changes, come to her small Pennsylvania town; and Miranda’s voice is by turns petulant, angry, and finally resigned, as her family is forced to make tough choices while they consider their increasingly limited options. Yet even as suspicious neighbors stockpile food in anticipation of a looming winter without heat or electricity, Miranda knows that that her future is still hers to decide even if life as she knew it is over.
