Let’s Pretend This Never Happened–Jenny Lawson

My friend who normally suggests incredibly upsetting (cough cough World War 2) books to me suggested this.  Now, this has taxidermy on the front so you can imagine my dismay and skepticism at what I was about to walk into.  But blindly walk into it I did and I was surprised as fuck and happilyContinue reading “Let’s Pretend This Never Happened–Jenny Lawson”

The Time of My Life–Cecelia Ahern

I always trust that when I pick up a Cecelia Ahern novel that I’m going to like it. There’s just so much magic in her stories that I really love them all. I also trust that I’ll cry like a little bitch and be devastated for days.  Exhibit A: P.S. I Love You.  I reallyContinue reading “The Time of My Life–Cecelia Ahern”

Pride and Pleasure–Sylvia Day

I love a good romance novel that 100% promises dirty sex scenes.  I have a juvenile mind where I don’t find these scenes sexy: I find them absurd and a good gut laugh. Like I laugh my ass off like they told a good joke.  Man oh man.  I’m going to die alone.  Anyway, thisContinue reading “Pride and Pleasure–Sylvia Day”

The Sandcastle Empire–Kayla Olsen

I needed some young adult in my life after reading Lolita.  WHOOOOOAAAA what a horrible way to phrase that. And yet I left it so you could read it and be mortified with me and for me.  You’re welcome. Anyway: I love YA novels that have heart. And murder. Lots and lots of murder. AndContinue reading “The Sandcastle Empire–Kayla Olsen”

Lolita–Vladimir Nabokov

How do I describe this book? How do I describe my experience with this book?  It was confuddling.  I loved it. And HATED it. I never want to read it again. I never want to TOUCH it again.  I want to repeatedly stab it. While also suggesting that people read it? It was confuddling becauseContinue reading “Lolita–Vladimir Nabokov”

But Enough About Me–Burt Reynolds

I think I’m psychic sometimes.  Or I’m an evil witch who accidentally marks a person for death upon reading their autobiography.  Poor sweet dirty bird Burt Reynolds.  This book was so fun to read and incredibly interesting!  I love a good autobiography these days and I really enjoyed how this sounds how he talked. HisContinue reading “But Enough About Me–Burt Reynolds”

Deranged Book Club

Hey there sports fans! I just wanted to remind y’all that I have a book club on Instagram now! It’s called “DerangedBookClub” and you can follow what I’m currently reading and join in the Instagram Live at the end of each month to hear my thoughts “in person” and actually kind of talk to me!Continue reading “Deranged Book Club”

Big Little Lies–Liane Moriarty

Sometimes I give in and read popular books to see what the big fucking deal is.  “Gone Girl” is an example of this. I read that because I didn’t want the mystery ruined. But I did not like that book. I could not remotely relate to the characters or understand their motivations. It seemed far-fetched.  IContinue reading “Big Little Lies–Liane Moriarty”

Bonfire–Krysten Ritter

I had been anticipating this book on my shelf for sooooo long. I LOVE Krysten Ritter. I like every character she’s played, I follow her on Instagram and love that she’s a knitter and does that in between doing scenes for shows and movies.  I love her little weasel of a dog, Mikey. Did IContinue reading “Bonfire–Krysten Ritter”

You Deserve a Drink–Mamrie Hart

*Note: This was written early January 2018.* After a dark and gloomy beginning to the year (reading Slaughterhouse Five) I figured it was time to start a book that was guaranteed lightheartedness.  Mamrie is a well-known Youtuber who makes drinks on her channel (called You Deserve a Drink) that are fun and themed and soundContinue reading “You Deserve a Drink–Mamrie Hart”
