Fun in Peru Friday

Sadness....it's my last Friday of summer work hours. After today I will be forced to work 8 am to 5 pm instead of 7:30 am till noon. SIGH:( This also means my summer is coming to an end and cold weather is coming. CURSES! Oh well I'm going to squeeze every stinking ounce of summer out of these last couple of weeks if it kills me. This book will help......

What Really Happened in Peru by Cassandra Clare

There are good reasons Peru is off-limits to Magnus Bane. Follow Magnus’s Peruvian escapades as he drags his fellow warlocks Ragnor Fell and Catarina Loss into trouble, learns several instruments (which he plays shockingly), dances (which he does shockingly), and disgraces his host nation by doing something unspeakable to the Nazca Lines.

Those of you that love the Mortal Instruments series know who Magnus Bane is. I was excited to learn that these little tid bits of Magnus's life were going to be released monthly. What I wasn't prepared for was that I was going to be laughing out loud and have people staring at me. In true Magnus fashion he is leaps and bounds above the average dresser and has drug his fellow warlocks into what he calls "travels that would be ceaseless rounds of debauchery". Sounds like my kinda trip.....

1791... Run in with monkeys in the rain forest and an incident with a ship full of bat guano.
                                                   
                                                         1885... Wanted for desecrating a temple.
              
                                                         1890... Magus tries his hand at playing the charango. This involved a llama stampede which may or may not have had anything to do with his playing skills. It was so bad that they had a festival to celebrate that he finally gave it up. This chapter may be the funniest thing I have ever read in my life. Magnus gets drunk, busts out his dancing skills, steals a carpet and gets healed by guinea pigs. FREEDOM! FOLLOW ME I AM YOUR NEW LEADER!

                                                         1962... Lastly he turns to a life of crime.

I give this story 5 chocolate dipped strawberries and a round of whatever Magnus was drinking in 1890.
PEACE
