Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 21

Day 21: The first novel you remember reading I’m pretty positive that this was not the first novel I read, but I do remember loving the Junie B. Jones series in my young reader days. I remember getting up to #13 or so before moving on to more sophisticated series, such as the Magic TreeContinue reading “Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 21”

Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 20

Day Twenty: Favorite romance book So, I’m not a huge romance fan. I can probably count on one hand how many I’ve read in my entire life, actually. But! That doesn’t mean that every once in awhile I don’t get sucked in. The Note by Teresa Mummert did just that, drew me in like aContinue reading “Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 20”

Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 19

Day Nineteen: Favorite book turned into a movie Though the movie wasn’t really based on the book, as the book is laid out in a self-help format,  I loved He’s Just Not That Into You. The book was like my field guide in college—if a boy didn’t text or call me, I assumed He Wasn’tContinue reading “Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 19”

Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 18

Day Eighteen: A book that disappointed you I started the Breathe series (twosome?) by Sarah Crossan back in April and devoured the first book, so I immediately started the second, Resist, thinking it would be just as good. I was so wrong. The second book seemed rushed and all over the place, like Crossan wasContinue reading “Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 18”

Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 17

Day Seventeen: Favorite quote from your favorite book “People aren’t either wicked or noble. They’re like chef’s salads, with good things and bad things chopped and mixed together in a vinaigrette of confusion and conflict.” ― Lemony Snicket, The Grim Grotto   ““You think the dead we loved truly ever leave us? You think thatContinue reading “Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 17”

Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 16

Day Sixteen: Your favorite female character And again, since finishing Poison Study my answer has changed… Yelena is totally my favorite. She’s such a badass! I love that she’s so smart and strong, and that she doesn’t take crap from anyone no matter who they are. She stands up for what she believes is rightContinue reading “Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 16”

Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 15

Day Fifteen: Favorite male character Hello, Jamie from Outlander. Though the dude they cast in the Starz version is not how I pictured him in my head while reading the book, he’s still okay. In the book, he’s mysterious, sexy, smoldering…Scottish. Plus he can wield a sword like nobody’s business. Did I ever think IContinue reading “Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 15”

Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 14

Day Fourteen: Book turned movie and completely desecrated I’ve read every single book in the Series of Unfortunate Events. When they announced that they would be making a movie out of it (with Jim Carrey, AND my heartthrob, Liam Aiken) my thirteen-year-old self was stoked. Until I watched it and realized that they stuffed threeContinue reading “Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 14”

Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 13

Day Thirteen: Your favorite writer She’s relatively new in the author world I would say (her first novel was published in 2006) but she has definitely won me over and I will forever read anything she publishes. Gillian Flynn is absolutely amazing. The way that she writes, the way she captures your attention and youContinue reading “Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 13”

Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 12

Day Twelve: A book you love but hate at the same time I love the Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold…but I really hate it at the same time. I love it because I grew so attached Susie, the MC. I hate it because with every turn of the page, I became attached, but new sheContinue reading “Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 12”
