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…

Summers Read Part 2

I’m backed up. Not…not in the bowel department. I don’t know why I feel like I needed to clarify that when you’ll see in a minute that I mean book reviews. Either way. Here we are. In The Woods–Tana French This book was total…

Summer Reads

Hello Puny Humans: I have a pile of reviews building that go as far back as two summers ago. Yeesh. Here’s the thing with life: Stuff happens to you and then other things are forgotten about. These books weren’t one of those things, but…

Harry Potter and The Cursed Child–J.K. Rowling, John Thorne, Jack Tiffany

I wish I had seen this in play form. This was so interesting and cool! Even though JK Rowling didn’t write the play itself, she did approve of this and it’s based on a short story she wrote. I missed my people. This is…

Mr. Pip–Lloyd Jones

This. This book. Woof. This was a case of judging a book by it’s cover and then not getting what I thought. The cover is a fun looking mosaic of flowers, really colour popping look to it. The actual story is beautiful and colourful…

I Still Shouldn’t Drink While I Read.

Or forget to post things for basically an entire year thus making it impossible for me to review books I read two summers ago. But here we are. What to say of these three books? Full Tilt, Full Speed, and Full Blast by Janet…

The ‘Sweep’ Series–Cate Tiernan

I’m going to review these all together because there were so many books in this teen series and if I tried to review all 15 of them individually I might explode. Especially since they were grouped together in compendiums of three, so I think…

Juliet, Naked–Nick Hornby

Music lovers listen up: this book is for you. It was however, not for me. It drags on in the beginning and then only got really good around the last 50 pages. I want to like Nick Hornby’s stuff, but I just don’t think…

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children–Ranson Riggs

We’ve made it out of the Roald Dahl vortex. Thank God. I was originally reading this book because I had been interested in it for awhile and then the movie was coming out, so naturally, I was trying to prep myself for the movie!…

Ballroom Blitz

I’ve been pretty busy these last few mon–years. Things have gotten out of control and I’m only JUST starting to patch things together to make them workable. One of those things being writing “reviews”, which at this point they are more or less just…

The Dollhouse–The Kardashians

Judge me if you will but I have a sick curiosity about books written not just by celebrities but collaborations. How do three people write a novel? A better question would be: How much did these three women really contribute to this book? I’m…

To Say A Little Word…

I was just looking at Pinterest this morning and this came up. I remember feeling that same “potent rage” when I read this and was so happy that Harry did this. Nobody steps to McGonagall. Like ever.
