October 23, 2014 Reviews 0 ★★★★★

What I Thought… • When I first heard about Whatever Life Throws at You I was so excited. I love sports and I love books about sports so it was a no brainer for me to preorder the book. The week that it came was perfect as I didn’t have a lot going on with school and I could dive right in. • As I started Whatever Life Throws at You I started to worry that maybe I was too excited about it to read it right now, but I decided to go ahead anyway. • It turns out I… Read more »

Review * One in a Million by Jill Shalvis

Review * One in a Million by Jill Shalvis

October 20, 2014 Reviews 0 ★★★★★

What I Thought… I was a little nervous heading into One in a Million. It’s the last book in a favorite series and there is always the potential that it could go way wrong. Thankfully I am happy to say that One in a Million hit the mark! The only thing that was missing for me is that I would have liked to have see all the characters from previous books pop up, but with 11 previous books I realize that is a lot to hope for! I really enjoyed Callie and Tanner’s story. Tanner has a lot of history… Read more »

Another readathon has come and gone. I didn’t read anything from my readathon TBR pile, but that’s ok because I read other awesome things! End of Event Meme 1. Which hour was most daunting for you? Hour 18 – The hour in which I fell asleep. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? The Vampire Academy graphic novel was a good choice. It was a quick read and had pictures! Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? No… What do you think worked… Read more »

Readathon Time!

October 18, 2014 Readathon 2

Readathon is finally here! I couldn’t be more excited! In fact I was so excited to get some reading in that I worked extra hard at my full time job and my part time job just so I could have the whole weekend off (Saturday for reading, Sunday for relaxing because you know what? I deserve it!). My reading rarely goes as planned during these events, but who cares? It’s still tons of fun. I plan on doing a lot of socializing because I really miss the bookish world. I’ll have some update posts throughout the day and be sure… Read more »


Movie Review * Gone Girl

Movie Review * Gone Girl

October 9, 2014 Movie Review 1 ★★★★★

WARNING WARNING WARNING! If you haven’t read Gone Girl yet there WILL be spoilers! Last weekend I dragged myself to the movie theater for the 10:30 pm showing of Gone Girl. I almost backed out because I was so exhausted from the week, but it was a $17 ticket (we like to go the fancy assigned seating theater) and I’m cheap like that. I’m so glad I went though because the movie was absolutely fantastic. At first I wasn’t so sure about Ben Affleck as Nick, but he was so good. Just the right amount of righteousness and sleezyness that… Read more »

Review * Ruining Mr. Perfect by Marie Harte

October 7, 2014 Reviews 0 ★★★★

What I Thought… • I absolutely LOVE this series. It’s sexy and fun! • This was by far my most anticipated book in the series. Cameron peaked my interest in The Troublemaker Next Door and I was eager to see what would happen with Vanessa as they share a lot of the same characteristics. • Vanessa and Cam have been dancing around each other for awhile and finally decide to give each other a chance (with rules, of course). Things are going along fairly well and then things start to get rough. • Vanessa has this insane need to be… Read more »
