No, I'm not advocating home-manufactured explosives. (Those little firecrackers in cored apples are entertaining, however, as long as you have chickens to clean up the mess. Or Diet Coke and Mentos. All-American fun, and educational to boot.)
I'm saying, if the weather has the impudence to rain on your fourth of July party, or you're just not that into the whole boom and light show...then you need a way to add some sparkle to your day.
1. Paranormals with explosives. How about Warrior Ascended by Addison Fox? Yum! Or maybe Alyssa Day's Atlantis series? Love them!
My Reckless Surrender --- you'd better hope for rain. You'll need it to cool off!
3. Rent Percy Jackson and the Lightening Thief. Starring Pierce Brosnan and Sean Bean, it's not just for kiddos---but you can watch it with your kids. And things go BOOM! Excellent. :)
So...I wish you all a sparkly, happy, patriotic 4th of July. Did you have a wonderful time?
