Decided to start this one finally after staring at it for a while lol. I have so many books going at the same time right now. I feel like I shouldn't have so many books started but I do like having the option to choose which world I want to live in for a little while. #DeborahHarkness #AllSouls #ADiscoveryofWitches #TimesConvert

OMG this book!!! I needed a break from my heavier reading material and this definitely was a perfect novel for it. I gobbled this up in just a few days! Charming, sweet, and it tugged on my heart strings. My inner hopeless romantic is shouting with joy. #thekissquotient #romance #autism #aspergers

Outsider | Stephen King
post image

Working my first overnight shift in a long time. Slowly making my way through #TheOutsider by #StephenKing. So far, I really like this #murdermystery. I am assuming that the main character may have Dissociative Identity Disorder. I wish the narrator focused more on Coach T than any other character... I really want to get inside this guy's head.

B&N haul from earlier today! These classics are on sale for $5.00 a pop. My cousin is currently reading Dracula but she's not getting into it too much. I thought it would be nice if I started it after I finish 1984. I was also told to give Wuthering Heights a try by one of my English professors, and a friend of mine is obsessed with Frankenstein. Let's see what they're all about!

Day 27: The most surprising plot twist or ending

The most current plot twist that I've read was this one in George Orwell's 1984. Who the hell just gives someone a note that only says "I love you" ?! And it's done by a minor character that the Protagonist hates, btw. Only until Winston knows what Julia is really all about. @speljamr and I had the same ? reaction.

Side note: Chocolate rationing?! Despicable.

The Namesake | Jhumpa Lahiri

Day 26: A book that changed your opinion about something

The Namesake. This is probably the first book I've read involving Indian culture. I don't know what it's like to be "Brown". I really liked this book, and the film adaptation. The culture is vibrant and intimate in so many different ways. The meaning of the title is also significant: I didn't know that so much weight could be put into naming a child.

Day 25: A character who you can relate to the most

Hermione Granger. I'm sure she is a popular choice, but Hermione resonates with me. I even named a dwarf hamster after her. I always thought that my book smarts and thirst for knowledge was one of my biggest strengths. I've also learned to stand up for what's right for my own well being, and for the sake of others. Oh, and I also had a crush on Ron at one point too, haha.

Day 24: A book that you wish more people would've read

It's been a while since I started the series so I wouldn't be able to say much about it except for the fact that it's pretty good. YA fiction with supernatural romance and some suspense and thrills thrown in with evil Faeries? Yes.

Traffick | Ellen Hopkins
post image

Day 22: A book that makes you cry

Not one book has moved me to tears yet, but I will say that these stories made my heart ache. Ellen Hopkins does a good job of writing realistic YA fiction novels that are based on very real problems that happen every day. In Tricks and Traffick, Hopkins narrates the lives of a few teenagers that were unfortunately misdirected into human trafficking.

Day 21: The first novel you remember reading

It was such a nice day in spring. I had a huge oak (?) tree in the front yard of the house I grew up in. I laid under the tree and read and read and read. Purge by Sarah Darer Littman was the first ever novel that I read cover to cover on my own. I remember the distinct feeling of accomplishment and amazement with myself and I had to keep reading... So I grabbed another book and went back to my tree.

Day 20: Favorite romance book

Bared to You is the first book in the Crossfire novels written by Sylvia Day. There are a lot of similarities between this series and the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy, but these books are so much better. Eva and Gideon are inseparable no matter what they go through and that kind of passion and love is somewhat rare now. It's refreshing, seriously steamy, and kind of kinky. 😉

Day 16: Favorite female character

Sookie Stackhouse. God, I wish I could live her life sometimes. Beats the mundane monotany of mine.

If you don't know about Sookie, definitely look into her. The HBO show derails from the book series, so they can be entirely different entities on their own. Watch the show. Read the books. However you wanna do things.

The You I've Never Known | Ellen Hopkins
post image

Does anyone else have 5 or 6 different books going at the same time all the time? I frequently "book hop". I wanted to read something new, not in a series, and get away from the usual fantasy fiction that I've been reaching for. Ellen Hopkins is one of my favorite authors for YA and Adult fiction.

#EllenHopkins #theyouiveneverknown #poetry #yafiction

bookcollecter I've read a few Ellen Hopkins books but not this one...and yes always have multiple books and m reading 12mo
speljamr I always have 3-4 books going at one time. Sometimes I need a break from one and switch to something else. 12mo
nibech @bookcollecter this one is good so far! I devoured the first 60 pages or so. What's cool about this one is the two main protagonists in the novel each have their own style; one is written in poetic verse (like most other Hopkins novels), and the other girl has hers written in prose. @speljamr that's exactly how I feel! I know I'm not the only person who book hops but it makes me feel like I'm entirely scatter-brained or something lol. 12mo

Who else loves a good cup of hot chocolate?? 🍫 Snowy days like we have in Buffalo NY always makes me crave some.

I use:
2 packets of Swiss hot chocolate mix (with the mini marshmallows!)
A splash of half & half cream
Whipped cream on the top
Sprinkled with ground nutmeg and ground cinnamon

I think this is a recipe that the Three Broomsticks would use and Dumbledore would enjoy!

All the books in Stephenie Meyer's Twilight saga. I ate these right up in high school. I think the movie franchise wasn't so great but the books weren't bad at all. I can hate on Twilight sometimes too, though. Definitely cheesy.

I can't remember what it was about this classic that made me dislike it so much. I only bought a copy because I wanted to try to give it another go to see if I would like it more now than I did in high school.

megzlynn If you reread it I hope you enjoy it. I didn‘t care for it in high school but reread it as an adult and it became one of my favorites. 12mo
nibech @megzlynn that makes me feel a little better. :) Was it more relateable the second time around? 12mo
megzlynn @nibech it is more relatable. I noticed morals and lessons in it that I did not catch the first time. Not to mention it felt somewhat nostalgic. It‘s was a much more enjoyable experience. 12mo
