READ IT: Revenge of the Spellmans


After reading The Diary of Anne Frank this week, I needed something fun. A light book. A book that promised to make me laugh. Enter The Curse of the Spellmans by Lisa Lutz. I fell in love with Lisa's writing when I read her first novel, The Spellman Files. I did not know there was a second book but a third got my attention and I couldn't wait to dive in. Will have to get my hands on Curse of the Spellmans soon.

It didn't me long to finish this one. The authors funny characters and quick dialogue made the pages turn and I found myself laughing out loud several times. The book could be classified as a mystery but the real meat of the story is all about the crazy Spellmans and their relationship with each other. And the therapist.

Having visited- and fallen in love with- San Francisco, the city provides the perfect backdrop for the story. I hope Lisa continues writing about the Spellmans.

They stood watching the crane. Any grafter can make money. Why did you say that? Have you ever met him? My approval or disapproval would be irrelevant. I am not a technologist, Miss Taggart. The public has been demanding economy. The sky was still the intense blue of evening.

Not when some of the most experienced sorcerers among us cant even control her. Dirt and grime smeared his skin, and his sleek hair was a knotted, tangled mess. If were something new and unexpected, then how do you know were not in love? Nialdlyes red legs crisscrossed over his back. She wanted to lash out, but she was having trouble finding a focus. Her heart rate followed suit. But then, they had time. You didnt falter once, even if you were nervous. Her heart stopped at seeing him close after over a moon of avoiding him. Her being uncomfortable was part of her atonement. Its going to make you lightheaded. She stepped back again. She groaned, twisting the wrists in Tykirs grasp, rotating the hips pinned under Lanthans weight. He was on his elbow now, his lips a breath away from hers. he growled into her ear. I can live with that. He shook his head. I doubt we could have flourished when every man is lover to only one woman. Her hands grasped his immediately. Mmmmm, she purred, licking the side of his lips as well as her own fingers.

Boots done, he stayed seated, staring at the brightly colored rug beneath his feet. As he did so, he saw the men on the ground moving toward each other. To a raedjour, that could be as effective as a douse of icy cold water. She held her breath when Arkir dived underneath Lanthans arm, caught him in a hold. Hands closed over her shoulders, distantly felt.

En l’espace de huit mois, Emilie Nef Naf a perdu 26 kilos. Une prouesse que la jeune femme vient d’illustrer sur les réseaux sociaux en diffusant un cliché d’elle au début de son régime et un selfie d’aujourd’hui.
Maman d’un petit Menzo qui arrive, aujourd’hui, à ses dix mois, Emilie Nef Naf s’était lancée au début de l’année dans un régime drastique afin de retrouver un corps parfait. Tous les mois, la jeune femme découverte dans Secret Story n’a cessé de dévoiler ses kilos en moins. En juin dernier, sur sa page Instagram, la compagne du footballeur Jérémy Menez annonçait fièrement avoir perdu 24 kilos en l’espace de 6 mois. Une prouesse obtenue grâce à une hygiène de vie irréprochable (du sport, du sport, DU SPORT) et à un régime alimentaire interdisant tout sucre.
>>> PHOTOS Emilie Nef Naf : ses vacances de rêve à la montagne avec une autre Wag
Il y a deux heures de cela, Emilie Nefnaf a fait le point sur son régime. Après l’été, c’est une femme délestée de 26 kilos en 8 mois qui vient de publier un montage photos sur son fil Instagram. Nous la découvrons au début de son régime et aujourd’hui. La transformation est bluffante. Sous les clichés, celle qui a participé aux Anges de la téléréalité en 2011 savoure sa victoire à grands renforts de hashtags. Une photo – déjà – multi-likée et saluée par ses followers qui la soutiennent dans son régime.
