The 20 Questions Book Tag

I got this tag from Kara at Bernard's Book Blog and SHE got this tag from Destiny at Howling Libraries.  This is the first book tag blog post I have taken part in, but my bff Kara does them all the time and I could not resist any longer!  She pointed out in one of … Continue reading The 20 Questions Book Tag

Book Review: Warm, Dark Places Are Best

I just finished reading Warm, Dark Places Are Best by Mike Duke.  And all of my fears (irrational, as some of my loved ones have always told me) came to life and I am dying right now.  The only thing I really want to give away about the plot is that the story is about … Continue reading Book Review: Warm, Dark Places Are Best

Book Review: Dexter Boomstick

Dexter Boomstick is a book that I kept seeing pop up all over Instagram it seems. “Why don’t I have this, too?!” I cried out. And it’s as if the bookstagram gods parted the skies and I opened up my inbox and saw a message from the author, M.P. Lombardo, asking if I wanted a … Continue reading Book Review: Dexter Boomstick

Book Review: How I Stole Johnny Depp’s Alien Girlfriend

How I Stole Johnny Depp’s Alien Girlfriend by Gary Ghislain surprised me. It’s a book I purchased solely on the title, and that is not something I typically do. Do I buy a book for the cover? ALL the time. ALL THE TIME. But I can’t recall ever seeing a title and becoming instantly overwhelmed … Continue reading Book Review: How I Stole Johnny Depp’s Alien Girlfriend

Book Review: Sins of the Father

Sins of the Father is one of those books you find yourself totally immersed in and never has a dull moment. There’s never a good “stopping point” to put your bookmark because it really is that fast-paced. You don’t want to stop turning those pages. I had pretty high expectations going into it based on … Continue reading Book Review: Sins of the Father

Book Review: Ugly As Sin

James Newman, y'all!  If you are not reading him or have not heard of him, then you need to rectify that!  This is my fourth book of his I have read and they have all been 5-star reads!  And bonus: he's super cool and interactive on Instagram and Twitter!  Ok, so back to this book.  … Continue reading Book Review: Ugly As Sin

Book Review: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

I am not sure I am at the right place in my life to need/enjoy this book as much as others do.  It all seemed a little too "Dr. Phil with lots of cuss words" to me and not very much helpful information.  Maybe I have already mastered the subtle art of not giving a … Continue reading Book Review: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

Book Review: The Sparrow

While having a mini-Christmas get-together with some of my best friends, I start to meander towards their bookcase after a few glasses/bottles of wine.  I basically attacked it like Ariel would a cutlery drawer or Chunk would a freezer full of flavored ice creams.  My friend came over and started talking to me about books … Continue reading Book Review: The Sparrow

Movie Review: The Open House

I was sitting at work and I get an e-mail from my husband that a new movie was released on Netflix that looked pretty creepy.  I watched the trailer and was ready to watch it that night!  As the day progressed, the reviews on IMDB got worse and worse and (shockingly) worse!  This movie has … Continue reading Movie Review: The Open House
