Eclair Cake

What am I reading now? My Ex from Hell (Tellulah Darling)

Annd what do I think so far? This is a Persephone story, but not a Persephone and Hades. Persephone and Kai (Hades' son). I enjoyed the story and the writing. There are two more books out in this series, The Blooming Goddess Trilogy.

Here's a bit about the story to whet your appetite...
Sixteen-year-old Sophie Bloom wishes she’d been taught the following:
a) Bad boy’s presence (TrOuBlE) + teen girl’s brain (DraMa) = TrAuMa (Highly unstable and very volatile.)
b) The Genus Greekulum Godissimus is notable for three traits: 1) awesome abilities, 2) grudges, and 3) hook-ups, break-ups, and in-fighting that puts cable to shame.

Prior to the Halloween dance, Sophie figures her worst problems involve adolescent theatrics, bitchy teen yoga girls, and being on probation at her boarding school for mouthy behaviour. Then she meets bad boy Kai and gets the kiss that rocks her world.

Literally.



Eclair Cake

* Combine pudding and milk until thick. Stir in Cool Whip. Set aside.

Line the bottom of a 9X13 pan with Graham Crackers. Spread 1/2 the pudding mixture over it.
Make a layer of graham crackers on top of that and spread with the remaining pudding.
Top with a last layer of graham crackers. Set aside.
