Without spoiling anything, I feel like all of the potential got sucked out of the book in the final 30 pages or so. The over-arching story seemed to building to someth Much darker than I originally expected, but I guess I should have forseen that. The over-arching story seemed to building to something much more interesting. I'm still glad I read it, just hoped for a bit more.
Nov 06, Bridget Bailey rated it liked it. I have read a couple of her books and really enjoy this author. This was a super quick read as I think it was geared more towards the teen or young adult genre and not like her normal books. It was a short and quick read with a huge twist at the end that I didn't see coming. It's a light-hearted book with a lot of cute and funny stories within it. This book definitely doesn't make you think but is a quick read and enjoyable in the process.
Oct 23, Julie Akeman rated it it was amazing. I loved this book, so funny, if you like Addams Family check out the humor in this thing. Rich parents of entitled children though they are in their teens a teen, telling this story, is hired to 'babysit' them. And in observing their and their parent's behavior she writes the stories of these Seven Deadlies representing the Seven Sins.
Once I got started it was hard to put down. A very fast read and like I said, very funny and enjoyable. Aug 24, Theresa rated it it was ok. What an odd book. Very much in the vein of A Series of Unfortunate Events in terms of style - including addressing the reader and providing definitions as well as a heavy dose of dark humor - this book suffers by comparison perhaps in part because Lemony Snicket mined this field first.
Dec 31, Grace rated it it was ok. This is a very quick read. I read it during an exam window middle school teacher here. It's entertaining as you go but the ending leaves a lot to be desired.
I literally closed the book and said, out loud, "That was the stupidest way to end that. It's a toss up.

This book was a solid 4 stars for me - Perry as a narrator is positively hilarious, if occasionally verbose, and the stories she tells are very Roald Dahl meets Tim Burton - but then the epilogue happened. On a separate note, Cecilia Ruiz's illustrations are great; I only wish the full-spread prints at the end were spread throughout the book instead. Aug 31, Kristie rated it it was ok. I agree with others that the ending was unnecessary, and I'm not sure that the format of letters to college admissions offices worked either.
Amusing, unbelievable tales to illustrate each of the Deadlies. Nov 09, MayDrake rated it really liked it. This book has a great story line with amazing characters.
As a 13 year old and reading this gave me a great laugh. It also gave me a good incite to the story behind the 7 deadly sins. However it did make me think twice about wanting to babysit ever. Jan 20, Rebekah Shilling rated it liked it. I'm not sure i should give this book 3 stars honestly.
It was decent but not that great. The ending throws you for a complete loop and the descriptions of people with the seven deadlies are so off the wall that you know it's fiction and the ramblings of a 14year old.
Mar 26, Carolyn rated it it was ok Shelves: bluh. Sorry, but I couldn't really get beyond the dullness of the delivery. Slow and confusing, it made me skim the book after chapter 5 hoping it would get better.
But nope, I just didn't enjoy it as much as I hoped. Apr 12, Russ Carll rated it really liked it. I gave this four out of five stars!! It was fun to read,regardless of the fact that I don't care for Mexican culture!! The author definitely has a dark sense of humor which appealed to me!! I honestly don't understand why so many had given such bad reviews!!

In describing the plight of the weak in faith, Luther discusses the cause of their weakness. They should have been delivered from these pastors by the teachings of faith and freedom. I worry that by only playing in secret, or by not playing at all, I would become one of these pastors who teaches the snares of tradition rather than faith and freedom. Sound teachers of the freedom of faith are needed. For this reason rebuke them sharply, so that they may become sound in the faith….
To the pure all things are pure, but to the corrupt and unbelieving nothing is pure. The seven and seven or 7 and 7 is a popular whiskey highball that brings together two specific beverage brands.
A throwback drink that will never go out of style, it rose in popularity during the '70s when its signature whiskey was all the rage. Much like the Jack and Coke , the name tells you exactly what goes into this mixed drink. There's no mystery, no fancy ingredients, and no substitutions or variations. When you order a seven and seven at the bar, this is what you'll get. While you may think it's too simple in today's world of complex cocktails , there is a certain appeal that keeps this retro mixed drink in the shadowy spotlight of the bar.
ISINs are being introduced worldwide and are the most popular global securities identifier. Trading, clearing and settlement systems in many countries have adopted ISINs as a secondary measure of identifying securities. Some countries, mainly in Europe, have moved to using the ISIN as their primary means of identifying securities.
The ISIN is generally included in services sold by financial data vendors and intermediaries. These services are normally paid services as more value added data is included with the information.
In general, the issuer of a security will include the ISIN in issuance papers or other documentation for identification purposes. In , Standard and Poor's provided six undertakings  to the European Commission to remedy the situation.
The agreement is applicable to all consuming companies in the European Economic Area. The BlueKeep vulnerability, tracked as CVE , has been the boogeyman of the IT and cyber-security communities for the past two weeks. The issue came to light on the May Patch Tuesday, earlier this month. At the time, Microsoft released patches but also warned that the BlueKeep flaw is wormable , meaning that hackers and malware could potentially abuse it to self-replicate and spread on its own, similar to how hackers used the EnternalBlue SMB exploit during the WannaCry, NotPetya, and Bad Rabbit ransomware outbreaks of But despite the vulnerability's danger level, no attacks have been recorded, mainly because there is no public demo code that threat actors can adapt and implement into their attacks.
Some aggressive scans are currently underway , and it is unclear who is behind them, according to cyber-security firm GreyNoise, who spotted this activity over the weekend. The good news is that companies can apply patches to mitigate this risk.
In research published today, Robert Graham, head of offensive security research firm Errata Security, and the author of the masscan Internet scanning utility has unveiled the most accurate statistic about the number of Windows systems that are still vulnerable to the BlueKeep attacks.
