Lipstick Wearing Book Reading Badass|Discussions (Rant)

  I apologize, a rant is coming! When it comes to drama on Twitter and in the book community as a whole I have a hands off policy. But like America in WWII and Pearl Harbor – there comes a point where you have to stand up for what you believe in, especially when you know that it’s wrong and get your hands dirty. What could this be about? Lipstick? Books? What do these things have in common? Well, according to a recently released video you can only have one because those who wear makeup can't possibly actually read. In this video an older gentleman voices … [Read more...]

SST Tour: Outrun the Moon by Stacy Lee|ARC Review

Outrun the Moon was the first of Stacy Lee’s books that I have had the pleasure of reading. I know, most would be shocked by this, but it is true. The cover pulled me in and after reading the synopsis I was hooked and just HAD to be on this tour the lovely Nori put together for the Saturday Street Team for the launch of the book on May 24th. Now I definitely have to check out Under the Painted Sky! I know that sometimes reviews can get long and I have SO many positive things to say about this book so I am going to review this book and highlight three important … [Read more...]

In Which I Rant And Then Do Top Ten Tuesday!

  I’m relatively new to the blogging community and even more so to the complete thrill of going to book conventions such as BEA. If you follow me on Twitter or read my post about my impromptu hiatus you’ll notice that I went to my first BEA this week. What I was not aware of before going was the drama on Twitter for those who have gone. Some people are upset that a few individuals got double copies of coveted ARCS. I have seen some of the pictures that have gotten most upset and I can say that I agree because there are some books that I wanted but didn’t get … [Read more...]

SST Tour: Genius: The Game by Leopoldo Gout| Book Review

    My review for Genius is going to be a little different than most of the ones that I have done before. Instead of giving random paragraphs that describe what I did like and what I didn't like I'm going to do something a bit different. I'm going to break down the stars that I gave this book and describe why exactly I gave the book the stars. Then, I will give a reason why I didn't (if I didn't) give the stars that remain out of a total of five stars.  Hopefully this assists people with figuring out if they feel Genius is a book that they should … [Read more...]

SST Tour: Hippopotamister by John Green| Book Review

  Lately I have decided that I am going to start something on my blog to highlight children's books because not only am I am a mother of children 3 and 1 years old but I am finishing my degree and soon will be an elementary school teacher and hopefully librarian soon. When I was offered a spot on the Hippopotamister SST Tour I thought that this would be the perfect time to start. Technically, I am not including this in my new feature to be named later but I will be working on this more later! Now, enough with my introduction and on to the review! The … [Read more...]
