Hey guys!!! It’s time again for another Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is (First Ten) Books I Reviewed. So the prompt says it does not have to be formal reviews. It can be a couple sentences. It also can be from a retailer site or goodreads. So goodreads does show you the books you’ve reviewed but it doesn’t show you in the order you’ve reviewed. it. So I thought it would be fun to see what were the first 10 book reviews I posted on my blog. I think that would be a fun trip down memory lane. So let’s dive in.
Also I am sorry about this post going up so late in the day. I just purchased My Time At Portia and it’s taken over my life. Continue reading “Top Ten Tuesday: (First Ten) Books I Reviewed” →

Hey guys! I am really excited to be doing this list. I made a list of my favorite reads of 2017 which you can find here. I always really enjoy seeing the books people love and the books people disliked. Since I haven’t made a list of books I was disappointed with I thought I would before it was too late.
For this list I decided to put books I was really looking forward to reading that I finally read and dislikes. Also I decided I would include books that I only gave one star.
I am sorry if books you guys liked are on here. Some of these just did’t do it for me.
Let’s get to it! Continue reading “Disappointing Books of 2017” →
So I recently discovered Top 5 Wednesday and I decided I would try one and see how it goes. I’m so excited to switch it up and do something different from reviews and wrap-ups.
The theme for this week is: Books You Felt Betrayed By –Beware the Ides of March! What books (or characters) did you feel betrayed by, for whatever reason…big or small.
The Girls By Emma Cline
Reason: This was a book I heard so many good things about last year. I finally got around to reading it this year and I was so disappointed. I muscled through it but overall did not enjoy.
Every Day By David Levithan
Reason: I’m not sure how this book got on my radar but I remember looking forward to reading it. I loved the concept of it I just hated the romantic aspect that took up majority of the book.
The Notebook By Nicholas Sparks
Reason: So usually I read the book before the movie but that wasn’t the case for this. I really enjoyed the movie. The book really disappointed me. It was just so boring. I have another Nicholas Sparks book on my TBR list so I hope that ends up being better.
Four: A Divergent Story Collection By Veronica Roth
Reason: So I’m a big fan of the Divergent series. I couldn’t wait to read more about the series once it ended. The stories are from Four’s point of view. I feel everything was pretty much information I already knew. I just felt like I was reading a recap of the series.
The Grownup By Gillian Flynn
Reason: Gillian Flynn is one of my favorite authors. I was so excited to hear that they were releasing one of her short stories. I honestly didn’t enjoy it as much as her other stories. I wanted so much more from this. Plus the ending was very open-ended.
What are some books you feel betrayed by? I am excited to hear what you guys have to say.
The Girls By Emma Cline
Goodreads Synopsis: Northern California, during the violent end of the 1960s. At the start of summer, a lonely and thoughtful teenager, Evie Boyd, sees a group of girls in the park, and is immediately caught by their freedom, their careless dress, their dangerous aura of abandon. Soon, Evie is in thrall to Suzanne, a mesmerizing older girl, and is drawn into the circle of a soon-to-be infamous cult and the man who is its charismatic leader. Hidden in the hills, their sprawling ranch is eerie and run down, but to Evie, it is exotic, thrilling, charged—a place where she feels desperate to be accepted. As she spends more time away from her mother and the rhythms of her daily life, and as her obsession with Suzanne intensifies, Evie does not realize she is coming closer and closer to unthinkable violence, and to that moment in a girl’s life when everything can go horribly wrong.

Hey guys!! I hope you are all doing well. I’ve had a lot of down time the last month and I ended up doing a lot of reading. I ended up reading 13 books. It sounds like a lot but some of them were comics and I read a couple of The Series of Unfortunate Events books and those are pretty sure short books. Overall I enjoyed majority of the books I read and will be posting some reviews of those books.
