My guts have shit for brains

My guts have shit for brains

Book # 10: This was a real treat. Honestly very entertaining and a quick read. Just the kind of book I needed to read…and how the hell was this Hornby’s first novel?! He writes in a way that just makes it seem likes its flowing out of his mouth/head. You may also know this as … Continue reading

Book # 9: I was expecting to like this book. It was an easy read about a “30-something Singleton” from London, who starts off the book listing her New Years resolutions. Like most of us, she doesn’t really succeed at keeping those resolutions (this year I followed through with 3 of mine!) She swears off misogynists, chauvinists, … Continue reading

Lighten Up (and do something different)

Book # 7: So, when I said later tonight, I really meant early next morning… This book was interesting, but went a little over my head sometimes. The concepts and “teachings” were easy enough to understand, but not being familiar with Buddhism, I kept saying: “what does this word mean again?” Good thing they had … Continue reading

All My Friends…

All My Friends…

So, yesterday after our 5 hour, non-stop, no time for lunch, sweaty excursion in the city we walked around for a bit. At Pylones, (a pretty nifty store, which would be niftier if it weren’t so expensive) I read a pretty awesome book. All My Friends are still Dead, is a 108 page book, with … Continue reading

What would you do?

Wow this is only book # 4/5 (Since it’s over 500 pages): The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest. Looks like my 50/50 prediction is right. Only going to finish watching those 50 movies…but I’ll keep at it. Had a loooong day yesterday, here’s my review finally: After a phenomenal ending to the second book, the third … Continue reading

Sarah’s Key

Sarah’s Key

# 3 for books! Literally just finished reading this, and wanted to write a post right away. I have to wake up in 4 hours for work, but don’t care. Sarah’s Key by Tatiana DeRosnay, begins: “The characters in this novel are entirely fictitious. But several of the events described are not, especially those that occurred in … Continue reading

Secrets of Eden

Secrets of Eden

I have to say this book surprised me. Like I said in an earlier post, Bohjalian was suggested to me by a friend, so I had no idea what I was getting myself into. It started off a little dark and depressing and I kinda wasn’t into it at first, but all of a sudden … Continue reading

Okay I don’t care what anyone says, Stieg Larsson is a genius and I wish he was still alive to write more amazing literature. The Girl who Played with Fire, was an in-depth look at Salander’s past…well maybe not too in-depth, since there’s still a 3rd book, but it definitely gives you a peak and leaves … Continue reading
