Sunday Street Team: Girl In Pieces by Kathleen Glasgow

Sunday Street Team: Girl In Pieces by Kathleen Glasgow

review Oh my gosh, you guys. This book nearly killed me and it did kill my feels. Big time. I won’t lie, I was really nervous about reading this book because I had hyped it up so much in my own head. It definitely seemed like an Alexia book, but sometimes when you hype a book up so much in your head, you end up disappointed. Thankfully that didn’t happen this time. Also, the comparisons to Girl, Interrupted were very […]

Stacking the Shelves #59

Stacking the Shelves #59

This week was a weird week. Cops came by to show my brother some pictures from the day he was held up at gunpoint (thank you light rail cameras) and my brother was able to identify the guy who held him up. Now they just have to find the slimeball. When they do, my brother will have to do an official photo line-up and then we’ll go from there. It was also a busy week as we are getting my brother […]

I really need to read more books that AREN’T review books. These ten books are the ones that I own and that I most want to finish before 2016 is over. Some of them have been on my shelves for a LONG time and some of them only a month or so. 1. Unteachable by Leah Raeder/Elliot Wake. I’ve had this one as an ebook for awhile and recently bought a paperback copy because I love the cover so much. […]

What I’ve Been Watching Lately

What I’ve Been Watching Lately

I think it’s been well established that I love watching TV. I could binge watch it all day and not get bored. In fact, I binged an entire season of LOST last week (It was season 4 in case you were wondering) I turn to TV when I’m in a rut (personal or blogging/reading) or just when I need to do some self care. I have a couple TV shows that I go to when I need a distraction and […]
