Becoming–Michelle Obama

Not going to lie, I thought this would be boring. I love Michelle Obama, she is a fun time for a First Lady. But because of BEING a First Lady, I thought she was going to have to shove a bunch of stuff under the rug. And she didn’t.  She was honest about how sheContinue reading “Becoming–Michelle Obama”

This Will Only Hurt a Little–Busy Philipps

I haven’t always loved Busy Philipps. Or rather, her characters. I’m looking at whoever she played on Dawson’s Creek. But I was also like early teens when I was watching that show, so really, I had no stake in the game.  BUT. I did love her in Freaks and Geeks. And Cougar Town was hilarious.Continue reading “This Will Only Hurt a Little–Busy Philipps”

Born a Crime–Trevor Noah

This man.  Born in South Africa, raised by a loving but hardheaded faith-driven woman, his father a Swiss-man that he barely had a relationship with because he was white and it was legitimately a crime for them to be family. This was another book that I listened to on audiotape because I got into aContinue reading “Born a Crime–Trevor Noah”

Furiously Happy: A Funny Book About Horrible Things—Jenny Lawson

After reading the horror show that is ‘A Simple Favor’ I needed a HUGE laugh and a promise of no incest.  Enter Jenny Lawson.  I had read one of her other books so I knew what I was getting into. The issue I had with this one is simple: I listened to it on audiobookContinue reading “Furiously Happy: A Funny Book About Horrible Things—Jenny Lawson”

A Simple Favor–Darcey Bell

The first for the new book club! (Check on instagram for @derangedbookclub where I post all about books and do a live book club at the end of each month.) [Editors Note: DerangedBookClub has since been cancelled because I got too busy with schoolwork and trying to become a librarian. However. I stand by theContinue reading “A Simple Favor–Darcey Bell”

Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy

My beautiful Dumplin’. This book was so wonderful I started a book club. Now, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that I’m a chubby bunny. I mention it whenever I read a book by or about chubby girls. So reading about this chubby teenager who is constantly crapped on for being fat broke my heartContinue reading “Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy”

Leah on the Offbeat–Becky Albertalli

Good morning! Let’s talk books! More importantly LGBTQ+ books. So apparently Simon VS the Homosapiens Agenda fans were bombarding the author with information on HER characters and one of them was that Leah is bisexual. Sure she had a thing for Simon, but she was also interested in girls. Which is why she was alwaysContinue reading “Leah on the Offbeat–Becky Albertalli”

Something From the Nightside–Simon R. Green

My brother recommended this book. Which sometimes when my brother recommends things I’m like “What? You liked this?” And then he tells me it wasn’t his favourite but I would like it. And I’m like ‘Why would you recommend a book that WASN’T your favourite?’ and he’s all “I don’t know, it was a goodContinue reading “Something From the Nightside–Simon R. Green”

This is Me–Chrissy Metz

Classic. After I said I was going to write every day I immediately forgot and here we are four days later. But here we go. SPOILERS TO “THIS IS US” FIRST SEASON.  Now, I knew I was going to like this book immediately because I really like Chrissy Metz as a human. (Not that IContinue reading “This is Me–Chrissy Metz”
