Holiday Reading Plans

November 19, 2014 Random Thoughts on Books and Blogging 1

Random Thoughts on Books and Blogging is my opportunity to discuss my bookish and blogging thoughts, whenever I feel like! I absolutely LOVE reading books with a holiday theme. (I also love holiday movies and spend an inordinate amount of time watching the Lifetime Movie Network between Thanksgiving and Christmas.) This year I have three books lined up. If you have any other recommendations please let me know! Audible was offering I’m Dreaming of an Undead Christmas for free last year and for some reason I didn’t listen to it! My True Love Gave to Me is a bunch of… Read more »

Sundays in Bed With… The Winner’s Crime

Sundays in Bed With… The Winner’s Crime

November 16, 2014 In Bed With... 0

Sundays in Bed With… is hosted by Kate at Midnight Book Girl to share with everyone what you’re reading in bed! Today I’m reading The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski… and I’m totally loving it! The Winner’s Crime jumps right into the story, which I love, except I couldn’t quite remember all the details of The Winner’s Curse and I don’t own a copy to refresh my memory so that made for a couple of “Huh? Oh yeah…” at the beginning. And all the covers on GoodReads look like this, but this isn’t the cover on the arc and that… Read more »

November 12, 2014 Waiting on Wednesday 2

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine to highlight upcoming releases.

Her duty to the Order is her life. After all, four years ago, she lost everything at the hands of the creatures she’d sworn to hunt, tearing her world and… Read more »


Review * All Broke Down by Cora Carmack

Review * All Broke Down by Cora Carmack

November 10, 2014 Reviews 0 ★★★★★

What I Thought… • Holy. Smokes. I sat down with All Broke Down just before bed with plans on reading just a few chapters before going to sleep. Three hours later I finished! • Not all authors can redeem a previously unlikeable character. Silas came off as a total asshat in All Lined Up. When I found out this book was going to be about him I was a little leery, but then I saw some good reviews so I decided to dive right in… and I ended up loving this one more than All Lined Up. • Silas is… Read more »


Review * Famous in Love by Rebecca Serle

Review * Famous in Love by Rebecca Serle

November 6, 2014 Reviews 1 ★★★

What I Thought… • I know that there have been some mixed reviews for Famous in Love, but I enjoyed it. • Paige lands a part in a major movie from a book as an unknown. I’ve read books with actors/actresses as the main character before but this felt a bit different, probably be cause Paige wasn’t always in the movie business and she was learning things as the story progressed. Paige was likeable and had some real struggles with who she was/wanted to be, as well as which boy to choose. • Rainer and Jordan are the two guys,… Read more »

Review * Vampire Academy Graphic Novel

Review * Vampire Academy Graphic Novel

November 3, 2014 Reviews 0 ★★★

What I Thought… • I fell in love with the Vampire Academy books over the summer and the graphic novel was tossed into my lap during readathon, so I thought why not? • I enjoyed the glimpse that it gave me into the book. I didn’t actually read Vampire Academy, I watched the movie and then jumped into the second book so it gave me a different perspective than the movie, which I liked. • For the most part I liked the graphic novelization of Vampire Academy, though there were things that made me scratch my head • I was… Read more »


Month In Review

Month In Review

November 1, 2014 Month in Review 1

I could not be more excited that October is finally over! October was not a good month for me at all. There was some school stress, lots of personal stress and some crazy thrown in and I’m happy to get a fresh start in November. Reading wise October was pretty good. My favorite read of the month was One in a Million by Jill Shalvis, with Driving Mr. Dead on it’s heels. My least favorite of the month was As Long As You Love Me by Ann Aguirre. Her books are just not for me. Books Read Reviews Other Posts… Read more »
