Fun Friday Find & My #fridayreads

Today while I was reading James Dashner’s The Scorch Trials I found a playing card. It was the 8 of clubs. I love finding things (that aren’t gross) in books. I find so many things in library books: bookmarks, shopping lists, receipts, and now a playing card. It makes me think about the person who […]

New Books! YAY!

5 Bling Book!

New Books! Yay! She screams as she quickly carries in the goods to hide before Schmoopy gets home! Technically I fessed up the other day when I admitted to buying 3 books when I said I’d only buy 1. Really, I could blame it on Twitter. I keep reading about so many awesome books and […]

13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson

13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson

4 Bling Book! This book wasn’t on my list to read next, but after I flipped through a few pages of 13 Little Blue Envelopes I had to find out what happened! I love the idea of this story. Ginny gets a package from her long-lost (and now deceased) favorite & eccentric Aunt Peg and […]

So gross; so awesome

“With a sigh she drops her hand and stands over the dead plague rats, bracing a foot against each one’s head so that she can tug at the bolts lodged in each skull. Her muscles strain until the arrows slide free with a loud shlurk of a sound.” That is some crazy-gross-zombie-killing-action from The Dark […]

I have a small book problem. Ok, I lied. It is a HUGE book problem.  It has many facets, too.  So many, in fact, that they need a list: I want to read just about everything! I have serious vampire and zombie issues. I have to read them all! I check out WAY too many […]

Friday Reads

My #fridayreads book is Carrie Ryan’s third book in the Forest of Hands and Teeth series: The Dark and Hollow Places. I am loving it! The second book, The Dead-Tossed Waves, is my favorite so far. I swear I read somewhere that there was going to be a book about the Sisterhood, but I think […]

Today I am Tired!

4 Blings!

This week has been awesome, for real life, but today I am tired. I found myself wishing I was snuggled in my bed with my meows READING. I found myself wishing that, like, all the time! Doesn’t that sound amazing?! Alas, it was not to be. I really wanted to finish my awesome Monday book. […]

Because I am Furniture by Thalia Chaltas

Since it is National Poetry Month, I think Because I am Furniture by Thalia Chaltas deserves a Shout-Out! I ran across this book at the library a few months ago, read it in one evening (devoured it, really) and it has been on my mind ever since. Written in verse, it tells the story of […]

Today I am thankful

Today I am thankful that my parents let me read banned books, old books, over my age limit books, books that I should have outgrown, books that nobody else let their kids read, silly books, awful and trashy and horrible books, really just any books. I am so thankful for their reading! My mom reads […]
