Happy Friday, everyone! The Notebook Sisters turned three this week, and for their blogoversary, they’ve thrown a fantastic blog party. Their theme this year was Alice in Wonderland, and I was super excited about the wonderland-inspired Book Tea Party Tag that they put together that I made graphics and everything. (And of course I would join the party after it ended… oops!)
Keeping the Castle by Patrice Kindl just looks so pretty and fantasy-esque that I keep wondering if it’s a typical princess story or if it will surprise me. And I keep forgetting the plot for some reason, so this book cover always leaves me curious!
Lexicon by Max Barry has some of the craziest characters ever – lots of killing, cussing, and random mood swings. (But I love them anyway.)
Fever by Robin Cook should definitely be beheaded. And skewered. And burned.
I read Cinder by Marissa Meyer when Cress was just coming out, I think, so a lot of people were actually reading this at the same time I was even though I was “late” to pick it up.
Conjured by Sarah Beth Durst, without a doubt, in the good confusing kind of way. (Most of the bad books I’ve read are confusing, haha.)
Seeds of Hope by Jane Goodall. I’ll be honest: I read most of my non-fiction books at night in the hopes that I’ll fall asleep.
The Martian by Andy Weir was the last book to make me laugh out loud. Yes, it’s been over 3 months since I’ve physically chuckled while reading a book. I need more funny books in my life!
Fool Me Twice by Mandy Hubbard has a cute boy with glistening muscles that I kind of have a crush on. (I’d say the protagonist from the book below is the most recent, but that would make me the cougar of all cougars, so…)
I haven’t read many books that have villains in them this year, but The Client by John Grisham has a mafia member (and his groupies) that I sure wouldn’t want to face! They’re serious and merciless. shudders
I finished Alanna: The First Adventure by Tamora Pierce and the Song of the Lioness quartet in four consecutive nights. Everything Tamora Pierce just makes me want to read and re-read and never ever have to sleep. 😀
