Random Findings

Currently reading The Girl Who Chased the Moon by Sarah Addison Allen, and I’ve had the decent find of coconut cake and fried chicken being associated with funerals. You can’t be serious?! Coconut is my favorite!Guess it really is to die for! *dorky laugh*

In order to know what the heck I’m talking about… you’ll have to read….no spoilers here… Just a random find 😉

Trying something new….again

Hola book dragons!! Once again it’s been awhile since I have posted…. because life. I have a new idea *I know again*. Life is busy for me just as I’m sure it is for you. So baby posts are coming!!! Small posts, hopefully more frequent 😉….First coming soon.

And the Horsemen Arose

Just finished reading Pestilence by Laura Thalassa! Honestly, I prefer her other books over this one. I wasn’t as geeked about the story as I usually am with her books. Despite that it was still a good book. And she still remains one of my favorite authors! I will read the next in book in line for this series 😉  Trying something new for reviews as promised: Playlist, Feels, Summary  and Quote Below! (No spoilers)

 Summary

He came for death. She was destined to save humanity. Until everything changed.

My Feel Ratings

Feel Scale? 3 out 5, good but the “feels”  were just not vibing for me this time

Story Line? 3.5 out of 5,  unique plot, good writing but just not my favorite

*scale key at bottom of post if your interested

My Playlist

Favorite Quote

“After I put Pestilence’s crown on my head (motherfucking queen right here),” 

From: Thalassa, Laura. Pestilence (The Four Horsemen Book 1) (p. 131). Kindle Edition

 

  • Feel Scale= How emotionally invested I was in the story (1= meh, 5 being wholly freeze balls, my heart is going to explode, reality doesn’t exist)
  • Story Line= Good plot? Nice writing? ( 1= meh 5= geesh…sure wish I could write like that)

New Year…. New Me? New Challenge?

It’s the new year and everyone is posting their reading goals for the year. Mine is simple: 4 books a month.  One of the four has to come from one of my past buying binges: aka books laying around my house or hanging out on my kindle crying to be read.

Separate from that challenge. Fit a non-fiction book in there somewhere: maybe one every 2-3 months? I hate non-fiction. I am an escapist, it’s hard to escape when you’re reading factual information. Plus I’m in school, I do a lot of reading and I feel like that meets my non-fiction quota. I just can’t do it, non-fiction is just not my thing. But my stepdad bought me books last year ( click here for old post ) and I still haven’t read :/ them. Its an learning opportunity as well. I won’t turn down a bonding opportunity because I’m stubborn on the non-fiction. It just will be hard to get away from all the magical powers, family drama, book boyfriends and steamy love scenes (yolo).

Last but not least: I finally have an idea for my book reviews!! I’ll give you my feels, a favorite quote from the book and *drumroll* a song that pops in my mind as I’m reading.     I’m that crazy girl who can remember the book I was reading based on the song I was listening too at the time (I have no life *sigh*).  I hope to have my first book review of the year coming up soon! I’ve met my 4 book quota already this month!! My post will be about a series I just finished from S.L. Jennings.

 

Contemplating

As per my usual procrastinating on assignments with Facebook (don’t judge me), I came across a book ad.  Yet another James Patterson book with a collaborator. Does he really write them or does the other author write them and he gives his stamp of approval? Hmmm… He comes out with maybe 20 books a year (I’m probably exaggerating), there is no way he’s writing all these books. Or is he? How the heck should I know?! Just a thought….. And another way to procrastinate ;).

What do you think?

Confession

It’s that’s time of year again! Hallmark has started their cheesy Christmas movies again. And I’m under the covers, sipping “adult” hot chocolate, and cuddling with my cat. What has my life come to?  *sigh*

Oh and of course books are always around. Just finished the first 3 books in S.L. Jennings Se7en Sinner’s Series. Talk about HOT and emotional. Definitely not for your kids. But indulge in those guilty pleasures, isn’t that what the holidays are all about 😉 😉 ?

 

What guilty pleasures are you reading?  I confessed mine, tell me yours.
