Books Lately

Oh hey hey it's book day! Even though I read some good books last month, it felt like a kind of blegh month, not sure why. I decided to just go with the flow and pick up whatever sounded good, whatever I was in the mood for, rather than reading what I thought I 'should'. I think I read a wide variety, which is how I like it.
Look Human kills me with all their cute geeky book nerdy stuff


After You - Jojo Moyes - 4 Stars
I  would have received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review except Netgalley decided not to give it to me, so screw you Netgalley, just kidding I love you don't hate me. Anyway, I actually paid good money (as opposed to bad money) for this book, so you know this is legit honest. 

I keep going back and forth. 3 stars? 3.5? 4? 5? I loved Me Before You, and though I thought it was a bit odd she was writing a sequel, I definitely wanted to read it. It was a good book, but it doesn't hold a candle to Me Before You, and at times I forgot I was even reading a sequel, it was like its own book. Kind of like if The Fault in Our Stars had a sequel. But it's still Jojo Moyes, and I still loved it. Except now I want a sequel to this story, please. Mostly recommend.

The Nightingale - Kristin Hannah - 5 Stars

I had never read any of Hannah's books before, though I had definitely heard of her. I actually listened to this one, which was a horrible idea because I was bawling like a lunatic at the gym / in the car.

This book is about World War 2. I know there are a lot of those, and I don't know why I keep reading them because they always make me cry. The end of this book is probably the most I have ever cried in a book, no joke, I was legit sobbing like can't catch my breath sobbing and poor KC walked in and thought someone had died. 

If you don't like emotions, don't read it. If you need a seriously good ridiculously over the top sobbing session, read it. Highly recommend.
Hollywood - Zachary J. Ferrara - 4 Stars

This definitely isn't what I would consider 'my kind' of book, but it's super short and well written. It's only $2.99 on amazon (or free for kindle unlimited). It's got a lot of adult stuff going on, so not for those easily offended by things like swearing etc. It's very short, but it is paced well and there is a lot going on. I was never bored, though it was a bit hard to keep all the characters straight, I forgot about a few of them shortly after they were mentioned. That's not the book's fault though, I have trouble with that many characters in a longer book. Overall I thought it was an emotional, interesting and compelling read. Recommend.

The Piano Man Project - Kat French - 4 Stars

If you can ignore the main character's name.... Seriously, Honeysuckle? Anyway. I wasn't expecting much from this book, but it was light, funny, sexy and entertaining. It reminded me of a mix between Ugly Love (though without the, er, negatives of that book) and Me Before You (without the super seriousness of that book). I could have done with a few changes.. highlight to see potential spoilers.. I wish the main character wasn't such a doormat, the story going on the side was a bit boring at times, and I didn't like that things weren't resolved or whatever until literally the last page. But overall, I read it in one sitting, so I obviously enjoyed it and if you like books like these I think you will too. Recommend.

Anna Dressed in Blood - Kendare Blake - 4 Stars

Kari and I have this book twin thing going on and she suggested I read this book... I was really worried because I do not do scary. You guys, Gremlins gives me nightmares, don't judge me. So I was super worried about this book, but didn't want to let my book twin down.

This book is not scary. Okay, it's not happiness sunshine and roses, people die and it's a bit gory. But it's not like nightmare inducing. It was funny. The main character is a guy, which I normally don't love but Cas was actually believable as a male. This book is way more fun than scary, which seems weird, but it works. I laughed a ton. Read it in one night. Loved it. Highly Recommend.
Fangirl - Rainbow Rowell 4 Stars

I loved Attachments and Eleanor & Park, I was so-so about Landline. I loved parts of this book, disliked others.

5 stars - the story, the characters, the writing. Yes.

3 stars - the fan fiction. Honestly, I think that this book doesn't even touch on actual fandoms- the best part of something like that (like blogging) is the community, and Cath doesn't participate in it at all, really. Also, I just didn't want to read excerpts from the 'real' book or her fanfiction, even though parts of it did pertain to the story. I also really disliked the ending. Not what happened, but the way it was written. Overall, I recommend.

Eight Hundred Grapes - Laura Dave 3 Stars

Several people I know have read this book, and about 50% are like yes! and the other 50% are like no, angry face emoji. I still wanted to read it though, the pretty cover pulled me in. I didn't hate this book. Overall I didn't mind it, but I didn't like it. There was so much going on, but at the same time not so much. Everyone in the book was basically going through the same thing, and I didn't love any of the characters. It was a bit predictable and the ending was a little too convenient. Eh. I don't know. I didn't hate it, but I didn't love it. Mostly recommend.

The Silver Linings Playbook - Matthew Quick 4 Stars

I have wanted to read this ever since I discovered it was a book, but I hadn't heard great things. It's a super short read so I decided to pick it up anyway, and I'm glad I did. I don't know if it's because I really enjoyed the movie, or because I had super low expectations of the book. Either way, it was good, and I really did enjoyed it. Recommend.

Illusions of Fate - Kiersten White 4 Stars

The cover, the synopsis (Cassandra Clare meets Downton Abbey? Sign me up!), I wanted to love it. I did enjoy it, it's a super short read. It moves along very quickly, almost too quickly. The magic part of the book took a backseat, I wish some things had been developed more. I liked all of the characters and the story, it was entertaining. I liked the friendship and the romance. It wasn't life changing or edge-of-your-seat-thrilling, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. Except for the ending, it was rushed and sloppy, like the author wanted to avoid a sequel. It would have gotten 5 stars for enjoyment if not for that. 
If you like stuff like this, I recommend it.
Easy - Tammara Webber - 5 Stars

I think it's so funny when I come across a book on goodreads that has thousands of reviews and I've never heard of it. I've had this on my kindle for ages, but every time I went to start it, I didn't feel like it. It didn't grab me. Finally, I decided 150k (ish) people couldn't be wrong, and started it. I LOVED this book. It deals with some serious shit and sends a great message. But on top of that, it's a fabulous story and I loved the shit out of it. It's not a literary masterpiece, but I loved the story, the characters, the message. Love love love. I've heard the sequel is crap though (why do they write the same book from the guy's POV and call it a sequel? The only time I enjoyed that was Midnight Sun, don't judge). Highly Recommend.

Stories I Only Tell My Friends - Rob Lowe 3 Stars

I actually know very little about Rob Lowe, but I quite like memoirs when they are narrated by the author, especially when I am not really a fan because I have very low expectations. 


Unfortunately, this worked against me this time. I had no idea Rob Lowe had such an extensive career. To be perfectly honest parts of this book were just downright boring. Other parts were interesting, but they were few and far between. I didn't like how he did the name dropping, but then I also kind of did like it, which makes no sense at all. I guess I'm jealous he knows so many amazing people. I always get a bit choked up when people talk about their spouses or kids, or people who have touched their lives, so yeah I did get choked up in parts of this book, and if you are a fan of his (apparently quite long) career, you might enjoy this more than I did. Recommend if you're a fan.

Linking up with Steph and Jana for the show us your books link up.


Life According to Steph

And with that, boom, goodreads challenge completed. Never doing that again.


Also, I read Jackaby for book club (see review here) and then I re-read the first 3 Lunar Chronicles books (Cinder, Scarlet, Cress) becaaaaause:


WINTER, THE 4TH BOOK IN THE LUNAR CHRONICLES, COMES OUT TODAY AND YES I LOVE IT SO MUCH I AM USING ALL CAPS. Okay, I never pre-order books, especially not hardbacks and this little pretty will be mine as soon as the postman delivers it to me today. I am VERY excited and predict no sleep will be had tonight.



TL;DR - Hands down, the best books I read this month were The Nightingale & Easy. Highly recommend.


Throw a recommendation at me?

  1. Winter is SO good so far!! I pre-ordered the e-book because I couldn't wait till I got home to read, so I started it on my way to work this morning. You are awesome for finishing your Goodreads challenge! If I get to mine by the end of the year, I will probably decide not to go for it again either. For one thing, I hate that it doesn't factor in re-reads...and I plan to re-read HP in the new year...I also think it limits me from trying books that are "too long", so I am aiming for quality over quantity next year ;)

  2. great reviews chica! i am a terrible reader and wish i had more time to do it. between my social life, work, and reality tv (i have no shame) i'm knocked out asleep in no time. i think i get in like two books a year ha. but doesn't mean i can't have a good book wishlist!

  3. There were times with eight hundred grapes that I loved it and then other times that I just wanted to get through the chapter - but in the end I liked it!! I'll have to check Fan Girl out!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  4. I loved the Nightingale as well such a good read!

  5. Thanks for the suggestions! Going to download Easy..sounds like my kind of book ;)

  6. I am so jealous of how many books you read in a month!! At this point I think the next time I read it will be spring break. Well...maybe over Christmas break when the kids don't have homework and are done with the baseball season. I know you don't read non-fiction but someday if you are feeling brave I do have a psychology book recommendation that I think you would really enjoy/learn a lot from. :) Aside from that, I'll refer back to this post for your top two selections when I get to read again!

    ReplyDelete
  7. I really liked Easy as well! I read the sequel/male POV book, Breakable, and I enjoyed it, too. But, I really, really liked Landon/Lucas and his backstory was revealed in Breakable. Yes, the main timeline of the two stories are the same, but there is so much more included.

    The Nightingale has been on my TBR list for a while and I even planned to use it for a category in Megan's challenge, but I keep pushing it aside b/c I'm not in the right frame of mind for a lengthier book. The audiobook is what, 17ish hours long? I just can't commit mentally right now. LOL! Maybe after the holidays when there aren't as many things going on.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Holy crap! You read 150 books? WOW that's awesome! I felt the same about Fangirl. I ended up breezing over the Simon parts. I have no interested in reading Carry On either. I keep debating about reading After You but if you say it's worth reading than I'll give it a try. I just always felt like Me Before You didn't need a sequel. I'm also going to add The Piano Man Project and Easy to my never-ending TBR list.

    ReplyDelete
  9. im still working through reading after you... which is SO sad bc i finished the first one really fast. argh. hoping it gets better. xo jillian - cornflake dreams

    ReplyDelete
  10. How is this an eh month reading? You have a BUNCH of books on here lady. I agree, though, my month felt meh as well. I've had Nightingale on my list for awhile, just waiting for it to become available at the library. I can't wait to add more of your books to my TBR list, you always have GOOD ONES!

    ReplyDelete
  11. sounds like you had lots of hits lately--i loved the rob lowe book, but only bc i listened to it on audiobook, so maybe that was it?

    ReplyDelete
  12. I really need to find more time to read (I am sure I say that every time I leave you a comment haha. I think i might give Easy a go, it looks like the sort of book I could enjoy.

    ReplyDelete
  13. That's funny you say that about Fangirl when that is how Rainbow Rowell got her start, writing fan fiction! I bet she wasn't super into the community either...Anna Dressed in Blood is going on my list!

    ReplyDelete
  14. The idea that The Nightingale starts slow is a little off-putting, I have to admit, but it sounds interesting! I hated Fangirl... I skipped all the fanfic stuff and don't think I missed it. I have heard mixed things about After You but I still want to read it. And I loved Rob Lowe's book but I love Parks and Rec and have seen a lot of his movies and I think that all those actors grew up together is so cool!

    ReplyDelete
  15. You should read more Kristin Hannah but she does have a way of getting to your emotions.

    I was a no for Eight Hundred grapes, I found it kind of pointless.

    ReplyDelete
  16. OMG. I literally almost spit out my coffee from laughing reading your non-netgalley disclaimer! hahaha I'm currently trying SO hard to read The Knockoff, but I think it might be one of the only books I don't finish because I don't like it no matter how hard I try. Also, I don't want to read The Nightingale, but at the same time I do because everyone says it's so good.

    ReplyDelete
  17. LOVED Nightingale!! Another one of her books, Winter Garden is another favorite of mine, it starts off a bit slow but when it picks up, it's incredible! I also really liked Fangirl and Silver Linings Playbook. I will be adding Easy to my to-read list :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. I really liked Silver Lining Playbook too.
    I love hearing all the opinions on After you.
    I've had FanGirl in my cart a few times... I need to just read it

    ReplyDelete
  19. I just got The Nightingale in the mail this week. Sounds like I should be ready to start crying.

    ReplyDelete
  20. So basically I created a category for books on Bloglovin' just so I can save posts of yours. No big deal. Hahaha. I've never read any of these, heard of some, but definitely going to take your recommendations on some of them!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I need to get around to Me Before You. And you know my love for Rainbow Rowell.I have never heard of Easy but I am totally adding it to my list right now!!! Sounds fabulous! So many books!

    ReplyDelete
  22. So glad you read Hollywood, thanks for checking it out and sticking with it. I know it's not everyone's thing :)
    I'm intrigued by After You but not really in a hurry to read it. I'll probably get around to it one day. I like Rainbow Rowell and all her books, but Fangirl is not one I'm hurrying to read either. 800 Grapes.. eh. You know how I felt about that one.
    I really love the movie Silver Linings Playbook, and I like other books written by the author, so I don't know why I haven't read it yet. I didn't realize it was so short, so maybe I'll get around to it sooner than later.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I have Fangirl on hold right now, since I just finished Eleanor & Park this last month, and decided I'm officially a Rowell fan :) Fangirl didn't seem like a storyline I would be over the top about, but I'm going to give it a try. I'm like that, once I decide a author is one I really like, I want to read all the books. I'm not sure how I feel about a sequel to You Before Me. Also, brilliant idea for the white text to hide spoilers, I'm so going to steal that!!! Usually I try not to give away too much, but I had one recently that I really wanted to say more about.

    ReplyDelete
  24. My book club picked a Kristen Hannah book for January, so I'll finally be reading one of her books. I keep reading WWII books too and I always end up an emotional mess afterwards. Why do I do this to myself?! I ended up skipping over most of the fanfic in Fangirl and I'm still not completely convinced that I want to read Carry On. Congrats on reading 150 and counting! That's amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I absolutely loved The Nightingale, definitely one of my favorite books ever! And I am the opposite of you about After You, I just wrote in my post today how I actually liked it more than Me Before You haha! And I loved Silver Linings Playbook. I read it before the movie came out and I just thought the movie could not compare to how great the book was (plus it's different in so many ways), but that's how I feel with most books that are turned into movies.

    ReplyDelete
  26. As always, I add to my reading list after these posts of yours! I'm in the mood for a dramatic cry session, so I think the Nightingale is in my near future.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Eight Hundred Grapes has been on my list for a while, so thanks for the reminder about it! I read the Rob Lowe book when it first came out and enjoyed the little insider-y Hollywood tidbits (but mostly the pictures...I mean, he's always been super handsome!).

    ReplyDelete
  28. I don't know what's wrong with me but I'm just not a huge fan of rainbow Rowell. I didn't like Eleanor and park- eek I know. But nightfall sounds superb!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I've heard so many mixed reviews on Eight Hundred Grapes, but I definitely still want to read it. And now I'm adding Fangirl to my list as well <3

  30. Omg I'm scared to read The Nightingale, now hahaha. How much am I gonna cry?? I am a big fan of the move The Silver Linings Playbook, and I didn't even know there was a book. I am intrigued just by the book cover of Illusions of Fate, so I'm adding that to my list.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I loved Me Before You, and was really surprised that she was writing a sequel. I have read a lot of reviews on it and feel like everyone agrees with what you said, that it really wasn't as great as the first book, but still good. I definitely want to read it soon though! I am adding the Nightingale to my list..I love books that make me cry!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I don't know how I feel about a sequel to Me Before You. Hollywood is on my list to read soon so glad you liked it. Adding Easy sounds intriguing.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I have been trying to read The Nightingale for about 5 years now it feels like. (kidding...kind of). the waiting list for it at my library is something like 6 months long. BUT i keep seeing rave reviews about it. so by the time i get it in 2018, i'll know it was worth the wait :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'm all why does Hollywood sound familiar? Uh because I got it from Amazon back in September. DERR.

    I also cried a river at The Nightingale. Heart breaking.

    ReplyDelete
  35. This is the last book in Lunar, right? I've been waiting for it to complete to try it out. I loved EASY!! If you wait a year or something you might be able to read his POV. I ended up giving the second one five stars because I kind of knew what was going to happen but seeing it from his POV was awesome.The Piano Man is waiting for me in my library queue, whee!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I loved loved loved Landline, but hated Fangirl! It just wasn't for me. And I also feel the same about Eight Hundred grapes -- the ending (pretty much the whole book) was just too convenient.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Winter!!!!! I just got a text that mine's been delivered! But I'm thinking of waiting to read it on vacation, it'll make the flight fly by.

    I'll have to check some of these books out :) I always like a good book cry .

    ReplyDelete
  38. First off, THANK YOU for including the Goodreads links. So, so, so much easier for me to take recomendations if they are only a click away! Also, I think you have me convinced I need to read the Lunar chronicles! Checking my library site now...

    ReplyDelete
  39. So many good books to read!!!!! And happy Winter release day! I can't wait for it download onto my Nook!
    My mom is obsessed with all of Kristin Hannah's books, and I've heard such good things about The Nightingale! I love the WWII time period, so I'm definitely saving this for later.
    My friend loves Rainbow Rowell and can't stop recommending her to me, so I'm going to try and read Attachments or Fangirl sometime soon! I've heard both are great, and I'm pretty sure you recommended Eleanor & Park recently too!
    Illusions of Fate also sounds pretty interesting too, especially if you think it's like a cross between Cassandra Clare and Downton Abbey.
    Every time I read your monthly reading updates I come away with 20 more books that I need to read lol!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Ugh my goodreads book challenge failed miserably. I loved doing Modern Mrs. Darcy's book challenge. But I need to be more prepared for next year.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Dang! SO many good book reviews from you in this post-- I'll have to save almost all of them! :) I always love your recommendations.

    ReplyDelete
  42. The Nightingale sounds like a great book, I've added it to my list of books to read. I don't know if you've read The Girl On The Train but it's pretty good. The narration of it reminded me of Gone Girl, which is one of my favorites.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I really enjoyed Fangirl, and while I don't remember the details I am pretty sure I was happy with it. But yeah I didn't care about the fanfic and haven't picked up Carry On, which I know everyone else in the world is LOOSING IT over haha.

    ReplyDelete
  44. You just made me even more excited to read The Nightingale! That one, After You and Eight Hundred Grapes are all on their way to me right now - I know which one I'll be starting with!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I'm definitely going to need that sweatshirt.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I've still yet to read Me Before You. It is sitting on my bookshelf at home. I have no excuse no don't even remember what it's about anymore, just that I need to read it.

    The Nightingale- I'll be a sobbing mess whenever my turn comes up on the library wait list.

    Fangirl- Reagan is my favorite. Reagan needs her own book, not Simon and Baz.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I'm going to come across as a cold-hearted something or other, but I don't remember crying during The Nightingale. When it comes to WWII fiction in the last year, I liked The Storyteller better.

    I LOVED FANGIRL. I also could've done without the fan fic excerpts or Simon and Baz drama and I am disappointed that Rowell's recent book is about Simon and Baz. I wanted a new story!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I really liked Eight Hundred Grapes and Me Before You! Adding The Nightingale to my list!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I'm going to have to check out JoJo Moyes and Rainbow Rowell. I listened to Rob Lowe's 'Stories I Only Tell My Friends' on Audible. I really enjoyed listening to him narrate it which I think makes a huge difference with some books. also, I NEED that sweatshirt!

    ReplyDelete
  50. My book club recently read The Nightengale & Me Before You. I missed them both, but still plan on reading. I need more time for reading!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I'm adding a couple of these to my Goodreads, thanks! Also... I totally didn't know that Midnight Sun was a thing. I just read the 10th anniversary edition of Twilight that has the genders in the story flipped and it was interesting. Not quite as compelling as when I first read Twilight (not embarrassed to admit that I got sucked into that story, ha!). Anyway, now I want to read Midnight Sun!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Dang girl, you killed the reading challenge! Way to go! I just finished Me Before You and I don't know if I can handle a sequel yet. Maybe next week, haha. I'm starting up the Mortal Instruments books now so let's see how those go! x

    ReplyDelete
  53. 150 books?? Woah! And I thought I was doing well with my mere 70!

    ReplyDelete
  54. So many amazing books!! I wish I whipped through books as quickly as you do!
    I'll be adding a bunch of these to my list. I'm reading Eight Hundred Grapes right now and am only about 20% in, so I'm curious to see which side of this I'll fall on. I've heard rave things, and then the reviews are meh. We'll see I guess!

  55. I just finished The Knightingale on Sunday. Soooo good, I probably need a break from the ww2 books for my emotional health's sake.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I felt the same way about Fangirl. Loved the Regan part. Didn't love the fanfiction. It kind of ruined the book a bit for me and I'm taking my time getting to Carry On.

    I have a bunch of these on my TBR, including After You which I'm looking forward to but apprehensive about.

  57. I need to read The Nightingale as soon as I am done with this crazy "I am an idiot and requested too many NetGalley books" situation. I am SO excited for winter. Of course, I haven't read Cress or The Fairest yet, so I'll have to wait a little longer to read it. Can't wait to hear what you think of it!

    ReplyDelete
  58. The only thing I read by Kristin Hannah was Firefly Lane, which a story about love and friendship and I adored it. The only reason I ahven't picked up this one is because of the WWII element; I don't like books that make me cry! Hollywood- is that the one by Alyssa's friend? I ahven't read many compilations of short stories, but it's on my TBR list. And love Rainbow Rowell, but wasn't sure about the fan fiction element of this one, but I may give it a go anyway because I really like her writing style. Sounds like a good reading month!

    ReplyDelete
  59. I love that you always read such a variety. And I'm so envious of how quickly you read. That sweatshirt... Must have!!

    ReplyDelete
  60. Whoa, congrats on reading 150 books! That's ... Well, completely mind blowing! I'm currently on number 52 for the year, and I thought that was impressive. Haha.

    I have a bunch of Jojo Moyes books on my "To Read" list (which I may have mentioned to you before). I really need to start reading her stuff soon!

    I've been on the fence about adding both The Nightingale and The Silver Linings Playbook to my list, but I think I will based on your recommendations. Thanks for the note about The Nightingale being incredibly emotional, though! I'll try to avoid bringing it to work since I don't want to be a blubbering mess on my lunch break!

    I'm glad you enjoyed Fangirl much more than I did. Further proof that two people can read the same book and get something completely different out of it!

    And that sweatshirt at the beginning of the post? So adorable!

  61. Congrats on your goodreads challenge! Epic. I think I'll pick Silver Linings Playbook and Easy to add to my list. Hope you enjoyed Winter and maybe even got a little bit of sleep...

  63. Yay books! I have continued binge-reading the Blue Bloods series... 9 books is sooo many for a series. I finished the 6th of 7 last night. Still hooked, but realizing there is a spin-off-y book inbetween 6 and 7... so I think I need to find that now! : / I'm ready to finish it... and I really want to know how it ends... but I also, am very ready to start working on The Semi Charmed winter challenge... I have my list... but none of these books fit! LOL. I really want to read Anna Dressed in Blood, The Lunar Chronicles, Fangirl... and the Nightingale. I am now looking into Easy and Illusions of Fate as well. I loved the movie Silver Linings Playbook, but didn't even know that it was a book when I watched it. I always wonder if I will be bored reading after watching. Maybe maybe not. You never know. XO -Alexandra

Thank you so much for your comment! I reply to my comments via email, but I can't do that if you are a no-reply blogger :-) If you are here to be a troll, please kindly bugger off. Thanks!
