Dorothy Must Die

  I remember the day I saw this gorgeous book at my local Chapters/Indigo store in town - I remember picking it up, and the dust cover felt amazing in my hands. I turned it over, read the description on the back, and knew at that moment I wanted it. I pointed it out to my husband, because my birthday was coming up, and we walked out with it that day. I was so excited. I love when anyone puts a dark twist on any fairy tales. They make things more interesting and not to formal. Danielle Paige did an AMAZING job with this beauty, and March 31st, can't come fast enough for the second book 'The Wicked Will Rise'. “And then I...

Incarnate

  I am going to start off this blog post by saying - I absolutely love Jodi Meadows. There is this amazing feeling of falling in love with an amazing book - Having an amazing author behind the series is even better. I follow her on Twitter and we have daily conversations most days - Anything from Cookies, liking photos of her ferrets ( who are ADORABLE ), to her newly formed love of the movie 'Interstellar'. She is absolutely amazing when it comes to her fans and it's one of the things I admire about her. I came across this book while watching a video from a booktuber on Youtube. ( I wish I could remember exactly whom it was, but do...

Eleanor & Park

  Let us start off by saying 'Eleanor and Park', made me cry. And by cry, I mean the ugly type of crying. I ugly cried SO badly. I remember sitting on the couch, curled up reading, and I didn't know it was happening but I just started crying. This book hit me in so many ways emotionally - From being in love to growing up in a struggling family, to the struggles Eleanor deals with when it comes to her step-father. I finished this in a day, it had me absorbed and wanting to know what was going to happen next. I love that about a book - If you can keep my attention right from the beginning to the point...

Ready Player One

    Oh, Ready Player One. How you've won a spot in my top 3 books of this year! I have heard about this book for a LONG time, and I was so excited to pick it up for my Book Clubs November book! However, I started it, and I finished it before November. It made my inner geek squeal with excitement, with it's many references to SO many video games, movies, music. Everything from Star Wars, Star Trek, Monty Python, Footloose, Howard the Duck, Pretty in Pink, The Breakfast Club. The list is endless. This book is so full of geek, that my heart burst from happiness. I loved it SO much, and I know its one I am going to be reading...

My Blind Date with ‘The Road’

A few weeks ago, I picked up my very first date night book. I didn't know what to expect, and when I brought it home and opened it while on the phone with my mom on the phone, I told her what my book was. 'The Road' by Cormac McCarthy. She mentioned that the book was turned into a movie, but she had come into the movie halfway, and didn't finish. ( Only because she came to it half way in. ) Where to start - My date was dark, hopeless, and kept me engaged right from the beginning. Because of how much of a hold the book had on me, I finished in quite quickly. 'The Road' is a post-apocalyptic book, based around...

The Nightmare Affair

  Looking on Book Outlet one day, this amazing cover popped out at me. Amazing purple with black silhouettes, and I had to have it. ( Once again, the cover grabbed me in. ) and when it came, I curled in bed, and got ready to dive right in! This book was very slow in the beginning, which bothered me greatly. It didn't grab me in a way other books have this year, and I almost considered not finishing the book. ( That has not happened in a long time. ) BUT I told myself that things could build up, and get better further in and I was right. By the end of the book, I was happy with what I had read.

After seeing so many posts on Instagram from the fellow book bloggers I follow, I decided I needed to head right out and grab this. A lot of people wrote about how they could relate to this, how funny it was, and how it was a must need for any fan of Lena Dunham. I had watched half a season of girls, and I loved it so much. Knowing Lena had created, written, directed and starred in it, and knowing how much criticism...
