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”

I Like You Just the Way I Am–Jenny Mollen

Oh hi there! Just wanted to check in. Say hey. If you’re on instagram you’ve likely seen this smash hit of a human being.  She’s insane. And loveable. And insane.  But like, in a fun way that makes you want to sit near her while she tells you stories in all her twirling chaotic glory. Continue reading “I Like You Just the Way I Am–Jenny Mollen”

Kris Jenner and All Things Kardashian–Kris Jenner

This book was deceiving as fuck.  Given the title I thought I was just about to read you know…gossip.  Totally expected Kris to dish with me on …well ‘All Things Kardashian’. I thought I was going to read a palette cleansing book before moving on to other more in-depth and interesting books, but Kris surprisedContinue reading “Kris Jenner and All Things Kardashian–Kris Jenner”

George’s Marvellous Medicine–Roald Dahl

Sigh. Here’s another interesting book by Roald Dahl. And wildly inappropriate for a kid. I have to keep reminding myself that these are not meant for Daryl’s age group (Being 3 years old.) . That they are meant for older kids. But I also don’t appreciate what this one was saying to that age groupContinue reading “George’s Marvellous Medicine–Roald Dahl”

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 betting there was a great deal of work done by aContinue reading “The Dollhouse–The Kardashians”

Matilda–Roald Dahl

The kid and I, well mostly me, decided to start reading all the Roald Dahl books in his sisters room after I had read the Disney stories until I could barf. (And I love Disney stories.) I basically knew the entire thing cover to cover, and it had pictures, and it was heavy to hold,Continue reading “Matilda–Roald Dahl”

Why Not Me?–Mindy Kaling

As I’ve said before: Mindy is my spirit animal. I had a theme going for a short time where I was reading books by thoughtful but filthy minded and mouthed women who tell it like it is and actually connected with me on a level some authors never reach with me. Mindy always gets throughContinue reading “Why Not Me?–Mindy Kaling”

The Longest Ride–Nicholas Sparks

More like The Longest Book. Okay, it wasn’t long, but MAN it dragged on. And I pretty much felt that everyone in this book behaved irrationally and idiotically. (Which is probably explains why I’ve never been in love.) They just ALL seemed to be doing stupid things. And don’t get me wrong, I love aContinue reading “The Longest Ride–Nicholas Sparks”

A Shore Thing–Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi

Okay don’t look at me like that. I know you’ve all read something that was this level of humiliating at some point in your life. I’ll admit it, sometimes I can be a book snob. I looked down on this book because of who wrote it and what it was about. But let me tellContinue reading “A Shore Thing–Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi”

Friday the 13th

Spoooooky day people. Actually, today is good luck for women for some reason! Don’t ask me where I read this, but I know it.     I may have already given you a summer book list today, but since today is Friday the 13th and the end of the week, I’ll be doing an extra postContinue reading “Friday the 13th”
