The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks
by E. Lockhart
Amazon | Goodreads

Frankie Landau-Banks at age 14:
Debate Club.
Her father’s “bunny rabbit.”
A mildly geeky girl attending a highly competitive boarding school.

Frankie Landau-Banks at age 15:
A knockout figure.
A sharp tongue.
A chip on her shoulder.
And a gorgeous new senior boyfriend: the supremely goofy, word-obsessed Matthew Livingston.

Frankie Laundau-Banks.
No longer the kind of girl to take “no” for an answer.
Especially when “no” means she’s excluded from her boyfriend’s all-male secret society.
Not when her ex boyfriend shows up in the strangest of places.
Not when she knows she’s smarter than any of them.
When she knows Matthew’s lying to her.
And when there are so many, many pranks to be done.

Frankie Landau-Banks, at age 16:
Possibly a criminal mastermind.

This is the story of how she got that way.

=====> listening to the audio version, so far so good

Dreaming about getting soon:

Tim Gunn: The Natty Professor:
A Master Class on Mentoring, Motivating, and Making It Work!

by Tim Gunn
Amazon | Goodreads

While Gunn’s Golden Rules showcased Tim “as life coach,” imparting lessons based on his personal experiences, Tim Gunn: The Natty Professor will focus on Tim “as teacher.” Divided into sections on common themes—leadership, curiosity, diversity, understanding, empathy—this practical, timely book takes us on a journey through life lessons and uses Tim’s own personal experiences, from the classroom to the therapist’s office, to illustrate larger concepts. Each chapter will end with a “life assignment,” where Tim challenges you to apply the lessons you’ve learned in practical mentoring or teaching situations.

AND binge watching:

The Fast and The Furious
film series, 1-6
-action, crime, thriller
Amazon | wikipedia

Per imdb for first movie:
Los Angeles police officer Brian O'Connor must decide where his loyalties really lie when he becomes enamored with the street racing world he has been sent undercover to destroy.

=====> wanted to catch up with this because Fast and Furious 7 was released and want to watch it on the big screen while it is still out

  1. The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks sounds great. Can't wait for your thoughts.

    Fast and Furious looked good years ago and I just never got around to it.
