No. No. No, no, no, no. Well yes to that. But no. Here's the deal. If you read my previous thoughts, you'll know that I had issue with those WTF moments. For those of you who many choose to read/ watch the series, I won't tell you the epic of all EPIC WTF'S, BUT WTF,… Continue reading And the final thoughts on Outlander….
...read the Outlander would you too? In order to better understand this post, you probably need to know that there are certain kinds of books I don't really care for. These are: *ghost love stories (though there are two that I love in this genre***) *time-slip novels (because why? it just doesn't appeal to me)… Continue reading If all your friends…
Oh that's right me. I'm pretty sure I'm writing this. . . Life. Life. You know? Life. So for quick, emotionless updates. On being a foster parent: it's hard. On being a daughter: it sucks to have my parents across the country. On being a mommy: awesome. Conflicting I know. But that's how you know… Continue reading Who is this now?
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
Do you remember my TBR list? Here it is again if you don't. Did I finish it. Please. As. If. No. No, I didn't. But, this is what I did read and whether I recommend them: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum. Recommended? Yes. It's a fun little story. I'm planning to work… Continue reading July Reads
Maybe this time I won't sabotage myself. But I am going to dump the TBRs I failed so miserably at. I mean, they'll be there, since I have my giant list with only like 1/3 crossed off. But my new TBR is an independent thing. Striking out on its own, shaking off the weight of… Continue reading August 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
