Inheritance (The Inheritance Cycle #4) by Christopher Paolini
Pgs. 849
The beginning of this book reminded me an awful lot of Monty Python and nothing of Lord of The Rings.  It feels like this book could have just been a stand alone and not have a series in the first place, due to the fact that it basically goes over everything from the other 3 books.  The end dragged a little bit, just like the end of the last LOTR movie...

Out of the Dark (Falcon #1) by Geri Foster
Pgs. 216
Free eBook.
The description made this book sound almost like Jack Ryan, and I was rather excited about it. And then I was servrely disappointed. So much could have been done with this story but the author just rushed through it all. 

Season of the Harvest (Harvest Triology #1) by Michael R. Hicks
Pgs. 388
Finally a free eBook that actually had thought put into it!
X-files meets the panic of GMO foods! It was a fun read and got somewhat intense at times, with closing the story enough that I don't feel the need to continue on reading the rest of the books. 

Croak (Croak #1) by Gina Damico
Pgs. 311
Rowdy miss-behaving teenager? Well they just might really be a grim reaper! Fun book for the younger audience and super easy read. It was really easy to pick out the villain right from the start and I can predict how the rest of the books will go, thus no desire to read anymore from the series.

Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers by Mary Roach
Pgs. 294
Derek had been suggesting this book to me for a while and since I was too lazy to go to the library and this book was already here... This book is very informative and hilarious at the same time. Definitely a good read.

Before Ever After by Samantha Sotto
Pgs. 297
Cute little story of a story within a story within a story about an immortal person who chose to be that way because he thought it... I teared up a few times.

Those are giant vultures that have made their home in the park.

We would have done the waterfall loop and stopped at the highest point in Arkansas but we were already out too long. 
Mom went antiquing and found herself a spoon rack.
Grandma was too worn out from the adventure at Crystal Bridges so she stayed home and slept.
No Ticks.
LOTS of chigger bites.
