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”

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”

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”

Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 10

Day Ten: A book that reminds you of home Again, my first choice would be a number in the Harry Potter series, because we read them as a family. But I’ll go with number two, Midnight for Charlie Bone by Jenny Nimmo. To be honest, I don’t remember much of what actually happened in theContinue reading “Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 10”

Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 9

Day Nine: A book you thought you’d hate but ended up liking Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. It’s one of those books that I heard so many mixed reviews about. Everyone that I knew that read similar books and had similar taste to me hated it, but one of my friends kept pushing itContinue reading “Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 9”

Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 8

Day Eight: Most overrated book This book is so overrated! Yes, I will admit that I read it. And yes, I will admit that it wasn’t the most terrible thing I’ve ever read. In fact, I didn’t mind it that much. But I couldn’t place where I’d read it before. It seemed so familiar, likeContinue reading “Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 8”
