The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien. Recommended? Yes. Super fun. But, um....duh. The New World by Patrick Ness. Recommended? Yes, if you like and have read The Knife of Never Letting Go. The Marvelous Land of Oz by L. Frank Baum. Recommended? Yes, though the whole (SPOILER) sex change thing at the end was unexpected and weird. The Ordinary… Continue reading August Reads
Now that I have Boyo at my house, my 3-year-old foster son, I have an exciting new way of splitting my TBR. The print reading for me, the audio reading for me, and the print reading for Boyo at bed time. The first time I put him to bed, I decided to try a chapter… Continue reading September TBR
This is my actual TBR list for July. Yes, even I, am mocking it. Oh self: bwahahahahahah. A bookblogger I read has a constant list of over a 100 books that she just pulls from. I think I could make one of 300. My To Read on Goodreads is 773. I so want to… Continue reading July’s TBR
My mom told me yesterday that she looked at my TBR for July. Then she bwahahahahahah'd. Fair enough mumma. But you can shut it. And also, I know. I'm not going to make it through all of them. But I will be choosing from that giant list. Currently reading The Book of Mormon, Moby Dick, Macrieve, and The… Continue reading Moms!
DISCLAIMER: I totally didn't make it through last months TBR. Even though I was really looking forward to Siege and Storm. And I will certainly not make it through this month's TBR. But duuuuuudes, I'm finishing my own book and doing CampNaNo. Also, I've set the HUGE goal of reading The Book of Mormon in a… Continue reading To Be Read: July
I've been thinking, since I finished this book, how I would rate it. How I would be able to explain my thoughts. I don't even have the words. This is one of those books that affected my whole heart, my soul, everything. I couldn't put it down. It made me so sad, it was… Continue reading Book Review: The Book Thief
I started this month's reading by asking for votes on which of my backlog of books I should read. The two winners (it was about 50/50) were We Have Always Lived in the Castle and A Great and Terrible Beauty. Anyhow, I decided to go ahead and read them both. I also finished up a few books I'd started… Continue reading Monthly Reads: May 2013
Turns out that May's To Be Read pile took me through *nearly* everything that I'd set as a goal, and consequently, I made it through some books that had been lingering on my shelves. Then there was this whole sense of stolen-time and wickedness as I chucked Rebel Angels by Libba Bray yet again to… Continue reading Monthly To Be Read: June
I've never really understood why someone would answer that question with listing a visit to the locker room or stealing stuff or what not. But here I am reading The Invisible Man and can't help but thinking about it. The thing is--we are who we are regardless of whether people are around. In a lot of ways,… Continue reading What would you do if you were invisible?
This whole To Be Read thing has been interesting. I have jumped ship twice on my goal. I was lured away by The 5th Wave and then picked up Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day. Now I'm not done with my list yet, but I've been thinking how its been surprising that it wasn't that hard… Continue reading The To Be Read Experiment…
