GothamGal is a devoted comic fan. Reading comics from an early age (TinTin, Archie, Katie Keene and much more), she has recently revisited her old interest and is branching out into the streets of unread comics and graphic novels! While she favors DC Comics, Marvel is slowly winning her over—but Vertigo, Image and IDW have so many new things to offer, she might just say she’s a comic fan—with no labels. Read More »
After devouring Party Girl, I decided I had to seek out the next book in the series. Lucky me, Rachel Hollis’ Sweet Girl was available via the Kindle Owners Lending Library, so I didn’t have to break my resolution of not buying new books (to satisfy the Triple Dog Dare I’m doing). I cannot believe that I am able to get great books via this program–I recommend taking advantage of this program if you have a Kindle.
I got this in 2015 as part of the Kindle Owner’s Lending Library and promptly forgot to read it. However, there was a book I was hoping to read and I noticed that I had Party Girl still borrowed. That propelled me to start it, and once I started it, I really enjoyed it!
Landon Brinkley wants to plan weddings. Since she saw the Jennifer Lopez movie of the same name,
It has been a long time coming. The fifth and final (full) book from the Lunar Chronicles was preordered and I was completely and utterly besotted with the cover (the HARD cover!!!!) before it released and I knew I had to get it–in hardcover versus my favored paperback with this series (there are usually extras in the paperbacks). There is another book of short stories coming out, but Winter is the last full book in the series–and it is hefty at just over 800 pages!
There are stories that I was indoctrinated into the world of British comedy very early on in life. I remember lots of British humor, but none was as familiar to me as that of John Cleese–whether it be Monty Python, Fawlty Towers or A Fish Called Wanda. In fact, when I moved to college, Cleese’s Ministry of Silly Walks was one of the first posters I ever bought–and was up on my wall for longer than most.
I heard about this book via YA Reads or maybe even the SBTB site and thought it looked pretty awesome. I mean, the cover alone makes me so excited, it isn’t funny. But I kept waiting for the price to go down–it didn’t. Finally, after months of waiting, I bit the bullet.
