I Feel Bad About Not Liking This One, But… The Golden House by Salman Rushdie

Check out on Goodreads Get at Book Depository ★★✬☆☆  2.5 stars Well… You never feel great when you are about to give a not-so-glowing review to a really well known, acclaimed writer’s work. But the review’s gotta be honest. So honest it will be. In fact, I’ve recently written a post about how to write a review for a book…

Discussion, WHAT DO???

Oops, I Don’t Like A Famous Book WHUT DO???

So I’m starting a new meme. Again. But this one’s totally awesome! (They’re all totally awesome. I didn’t say that.) It’s going to be dedicated to all those bookish problems and their solutions! It’s also all about discussion posts as well, but I wanted to make a separate column for this. Hope you enjoy the WHAT DO??? meme! And today we’re…

What If Men And Women Could Bear Children Equally? The Growing Season by Helen Sedgwick

Check out on Goodreads Get at Book Depository ★★★★✬  4.5 stars I don’t think there’s a book by Helen I could hate. Maybe if she wrote it backwards with her left foot, while riding on a gray mare, also backwards over muddy marshes..? Yet, still. I think I’d love it too. There’s just something about Helen’s style and topics that always appeals…

State of the ARC #1 Introducing new meme!

However, I have been walking around laughing like a little nerd about the name I came up with though – State of the ARC! How ingenious, Evelina. But anyway! State of the ARC is meant to be a meme…

You Know They Both Die At The End, But You Still Read It. They Both Die At The End by Adam Silvera

Check out on Goodreads Get at Book Depository ★★★☆☆  3 stars Oh, Adam Silvera. The King of #feels, The Ruler of #BringMeDown. Despite all the hype and excitement about receiving the review copy, I was… not a very happy camper while reading this. So, when it comes to this book as an experience, I’ve got three things to talk to…

Linking up with the usual crew for the Sunday meme at Kimba’s book blog. This week my Sunday update might be a little short, as I just came back from vacation! But not to worry – I still have something to share. My vacation was fun, and although I might not have gotten as much time to read as I thought…

Dark Southern Thriller About Family Secrets – Or Is It Really? Burying The Honeysuckle Girls by Emily Carpenter

Check out on Goodreads Get at Book Depository ★★✬☆☆  2.5 stars Good, important topic. Nice suspense. Okay execution. Almost unbearable characters. I guess it was alright? This book has been lying around on my Kindle for at least a year. It’s one of the first NetGalley eARCs I’ve downloaded, and to be honest, the premise sounded fab: Althea, fresh out…

July Stats Fever! And Sunday post #17

You know what! It’s the end of the month already! Has anyone been informed? Does everyone already know??? I mean… Maybe they sent the memo and I wasn’t there… This month just caught up with me. I was not informed! But despite that, I finished 11 books and caught up with my yearly challenge! Just barely. (And we won’t mention that…
