This time I read: All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven & Blood on Snow by Jo Nesbo This was the Reader's Choice book for the month and God you guys, were you trying to crush all my feelings into the ground? I think you were. This book really took a lot out of me! I feel like all YA books now a days are all about soul crushing feelings. It's like…

The Merciless by Danielle Vega & Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance - Robert M. Pirsig I picked this book up because the cover caught my eye, I mean how could it not! I saw it sitting on what I think was the "New/Popular in Young Adult" table and immediately walked over, grabbed it, and put it on top of the other five books that were already in my…

This time I read: Naked by David Sedaris & Cinder by Marissa Meyer (Reader's Choice!) I've read a lot by David Sedaris, almost every book by this point I think! I enjoyed Naked, but it wasn't my favorite David Sedaris book. There were some hilarious stories in this collection. The majority of them covered the time he spent hitch hiking. There were some mildly terrifying stories in this collection about…

This time I read: In Real Life by Cory Doctorow & Jen Wang & The Vanishing of Katharina Linden by Helen Grant This comic has been on my list for quite a while. The art style caught my eye and I was also intrigued by the story line. It's interesting to think about talking about economics in a graphic novel about online games. I don't have any experience with MMOs,…

This time I read: American Gods by Neil Gaiman &  Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard I really, really, REALLY enjoyed American Gods! This is the third Neil Gaiman book I've read, but I think it's my favorite one to date! The idea of the whole book is honestly my favorite. The idea that America has new Gods, like TV, since those are the things that people are sacrificing to nowadays,…

Pretty different, as per usual!  Etiquette & Espionage by Gail Carriger & The Unholy Murder of Ash Wednesday by Dominick D.

This time for breakfast I gobbled up some sci fi and YA to go along with my frosted mini wheats! 2001 Space Odyssey by Arthur C. Clarke & The Scorch Trials by James Dashner I watched the movie of this first, on my boyfriend's recommendation! Well, he put the book on my to-read shelf too, so both the movie and book were his recommendation. Anyways. I don't read that much…

Eggs, Bacon, and Books oh my! It's time for another books for breakfast! I'm blowing through my summer reading! Awe yeah! This time I read: The Maze Runner by James Dashner & The Redbreast by Jo Nesbo I shouldn't have started a new series when I just got a boat load of books for my to-read shelf. Really, what was I thinking? Well, I enjoyed the mystery of the first…

My current reads: Broken Harbor by Tana French & Beautiful Chaos by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl I was shockingly surprised by this one, it kept me guessing the whole way through. I loved the twists and turns! Tana French has once again proven to me that she is one of my favorite mystery authors! (And here I was forgetting about her as I fell into Jo Nesbo's Harry Hole…
