Post Office–Charles Bukowski

How to describe this book?  It’s…about the postal service.  How did I end up reading it? I don’t know. It’s short? That’s all I’ve really got.  Yet here I am reading a well known authors book about postal workers.  And liking it.  It doesn’t matter that I totally thought this guy wrote “Fight Club” (heContinue reading “Post Office–Charles Bukowski”

The Bend in the Road–Nicholas Sparks

I needed this book after I read Marilyn Mansons book.  I needed to scrub my brain for awhile.  So this is (naturally) a romance about how a mans wife was ended in a hit and run, she was the love of his life and nothing will ever be the same.  Insert:  His kids hot teacher.Continue reading “The Bend in the Road–Nicholas Sparks”

Happy 8 Year Anniversary!

Holy crap. I just got a notification from WordPress congratulating me on 8 years of writing on this blog. 8 years I’ve spent writing about books I’ve loved or hated, personal stories of triumph or failure, love and loss, book hunting, Keep Moving Forwards, True Story Tuesdays, or To Say a Little Words. 8 yearsContinue reading “Happy 8 Year Anniversary!”

The Long Hard Road Out of Hell–Marilyn Manson

“What the fuck did I get myself into?” This is the thought that came up the most when I read this book.  Look, I know who Marilyn Manson is. I’ve heard some of his music, I’ve read stories about what the fuck he gets into. I know he has beef with Justin Beiber about someContinue reading “The Long Hard Road Out of Hell–Marilyn Manson”

I, Bificus–Bif Naked

Oh Biffy.  What has happened to you.  All the things. All the good and all the bad. And all the in-between things.  I’ve loved Bif since I was teeny little preteen and so much of my early teens was filled with her music. And I’m so glad to finally read her words on the thingsContinue reading “I, Bificus–Bif Naked”

This Savage Song–Victoria Schwab

Uuuuuuurgh.  With joy.  This book was soooooo fucking good. This was one of my OwlCrate books, and honestly, I’m so glad I got that box every month for awhile because it’s given me some of my favourite books.  And this time it gave me a book series. Which was accidental. I didn’t realize (classic) thatContinue reading “This Savage Song–Victoria Schwab”

Scrappy Little Nobody–Anna Kendrick

Why is she the most adorable person to ever adorable?  Just a really funny, well written autobiography about the kicky little life of one of our most favourite Hollywood actresses.  Her stories were cute, and I really appreciated how honest she was about what it feels like to be an actress in the limelight. LikeContinue reading “Scrappy Little Nobody–Anna Kendrick”

Death Comes to Pemberley–P.D. James

This is a decent “sequel” to Pride and Prejudice.  Felt like it picked up right where we left off. And also kind of felt like Downton Abbey.  I liked the writing, it was a more readable Jane Austen (I know, I know, what a shit thing to say, but we all know how it isContinue reading “Death Comes to Pemberley–P.D. James”

The Handmaid’s Tale–Margaret Atwood

*I’ll warn you before the spoiler comes*  This is the first Margaret Atwood book I’ve even read.  And damn dude. She came in hot!  This book was hella compelling! (And far more well written than that basic bitch statement I just used to describe it.)  As most of you know already this is a televisionContinue reading “The Handmaid’s Tale–Margaret Atwood”
