I Shouldn’t Drink While I Read

Love in a Nutshell—Janet Evanovich and Dorien Kelly

Guys, I’m so far behind this from last summer. Yeesh.

Which means, that I also kind of don’t remember it because during the summer I have a tendency to read books that are lighthearted and silly, and what I lovingly refer to as “nonsense books”.

I love Janet Evanovichs work, she’s hilarious and after reading the description of this book, I DO kind of remember it.

It’s about a woman whose husband left her, she was fired from her job, so she goes back to her parents summerhouse “The Nutshell” to try to turn it into a B and B while working as a spy for a beer company to pay the bills.

Roughly.

I remember liking it, I gave it a solid 3 stars so I definitely thought it was funny and entertaining.

Good summer read. The end.

The Husband List—Janet Evanovich and Dorien Kelly

Okay, I’ll level with you. Even after reading the description of this book to remind myself what it was about: I don’t remember it.

But I also gave it three stars so I enjoyed it last summer!!! I must have.

God I have to start writing little reviews on GoodReads to remind myself later.

Like Hansel and Gretels trail of breadcrumbs so I can find my way back.

I might have to reread this because reading the description it sounds funny and interesting.

Too bad it didn’t stick in my brain. I must’ve been drinking too many Caesars at the cottage when I read this.

Hot Stuff—Janet Evanovich and Leanne Banks

Maybe I just shouldn’t read during the summer….

Or while drinking.

Yet another summer read where I don’t remember diddly. But this also got a 3 star rating from me on GoodReads!

Basically this book is about a girl who rents a room in a condo belonging to a drag queen. She’s then made to look after his dog because his apartment keeps getting broken into. Cate starts falling for some cop. There’s socialites and tyre salesmen, all in all, it’s the same kind of humour as her Stephanie Plum series.

Kids Books

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 group either.

This is about George. George’s grandmother is a bit of an intolerable shrew.

All this woman does is complain and treat people like garbage. She talks down to everyone, she yells at them, and is a complete and utter unappreciative …well…asshole.

So I don’t blame George for thinking that maybe the old hag could use something to make her more pleasant.

Thus he creates his ‘Marvellous Medicine’.

Which includes things from the kitchen, things from the barn, things from the bathroom. I’m talking perfume, horse pills, toilet bowl cleaner, various things from around the house.

Most of which aren’t safe for people to be ingesting.

Which is why I was like “Oh Hell no Roald Dahl. What are you telling kids here!!!” I could understand if it was like peppers or flowers or something that wouldn’t cause a person actual harm, but the list of things this guy included shouldn’t be anywhere near an old persons stomach. Let alone a kids hands.

It was supposed to be magical, but I just found it disturbing.

This guy. *Shakes head*

2015 Reading Challenge

Happy Friday little birds!

As you can see, no videos. I think I’m going to give up on the attempt for now. My computer has decided it doesn’t want to make them and has declared I have no camera attached. (Lies.) And I keep deleting what’s on my phone.

I am not tech savvy. Haha.

Anywho! After yesterdays sad news I thought I would end the week on a high note which means I’ll be doing two of my favourite things:

Making a list and reading.

I found a doohickey on Pinterest that sounds like a great challenge and I thought it would be fun if y’all joined me!

Here it is! Click to view.
