Beautiful You by Chuck Palahniuk & The Grown Up by Gillian Flynn   So, Beautiful You, well, hmmm, how do I even start to explain this book. Whenever I tried explaining what I was reading to people, I got a lot of mixed facial expressions, but most hovered around what-did-you-just-say-I-am-going-to-pretend-you-didn't-speak-and-instead-compliment-your-glasses or they just stared with a semi-wrinkled nose like they just whiffed some bad foot odor and kind of want…

I thought about doing this for a while, but then never actually got around to doing it! I wanted to do it way back when, but then I moved, things got frantic, there were adult things to get done, and I fell into a massive rut, which was more like a gorge. Now though, I'm back and ready to talk about books, travel, and my kinda-not-so-interesting life! Red - The…

This breakfast I read: Slaughterhouse 5 by Kurt Vonnegut  & The Bat by Jo Nesbo Slaughterhouse 5 was one of those books I feel like I should have read in high school, but didn't. I feel like it's a classic anti-war book. I was a little shocked because my dad hadn't even heard of it, but my mom had to read it in school. Anyways. It's a bit out of…

Today for breakfast I devoured two short books: M+O = 4Evr by Tonya Cherie Hegamin & Anthem by Ayn Rand   I wasn't expecting much from this book, since I bought it on a whim from Ollie's bargain outlet while on vacation. I grabbed it since it was short and the back seemed interesting. It turned out to be a pretty decent story too, considering how short it was! It covers…

For a wonderful breakfast, this time I read: Brain on Fire by Susannah Calahan  & Looking for Alaska by John Green There was something intensely fascinating yet at the same time completely horrifying about this story. It is an autobiography of a girl, seemingly healthy, who completely looses herself for a month to a horrific disease that is described as her brain being on fire. Scary, right? It's interesting from…

A tasty breakfast of the following reads: A Feast for Crows by George R.R. Martin & Police by Jo Nesbo I'm slowly making my way through this series, because I know I'm going to have to wait years until book 6 comes out...but I'm already done with book 4! What am I going to do? (Watch the show! Everyone yells at me) Yes, yes, I'll probably start watching the show,…

This time on the menu was: Ariel by Sylvia Plath  & Allegiant by Veronica Roth This was a Christmas gift from Sarah, along with the loveliest letter I've ever received and my boyfriend admits that he probably won't be able to top, because she knows that I lack poetry books in my life. (And on my shelf) So she told me that this was a great first poetry book to…

On the menu this time was: A Storm of Swords by George R.R. Martin & Dewey's Nine Lives by Vicki Myron & Bret Witter A Storm of Swords was a faster read than the previous 2 books in the Game of Thrones series. It also made me send angry texts to my boyfriend (he read it before I did) when certain things happened. I got a little ruffled. It's certainly…

For a nice balanced and nutritious meal, the reads this time were: Insurgent  & Choke I read Divergent, the first book in the trilogy, a while ago. My cousin read it first and told me to read it, so of course, I can't turn down a recommendation to read a book so I went out and picked up the first book. I LOVED it, you can read my review about…

For a nice balanced breakfast, the reads this time were: The Best Revenge & Tell the Wolves I'm Home This was another book that I picked up at the library sale that I mentioned in the last books for breakfast. This is another murder mystery as well. (I'm sure it's quite obvious by now how much I like murder mystery novels!) Anyways, I liked this one more than The Organ…
