For a while running this site began to feel like a job. The need to constantly check the stats and find out if anyone is viewing the twitter page, was starting to put a strain on my passion (which I think has been seen).

I had to rediscover my passion for not only books but for reading. I am still working on this but I am better than I was… better than I have been.

Confessions: Slight Vent

You know when an author doesn’t like your review, when you chat for weeks and then no longer hear from them once the review is published.

This bothers me . . . a lot actually. Authors lately have been feeling well since I have spoken to you and shown you what type of person I am, a good review is required.

No. . . not at all.

A good review is granted to a good book and even if the book is good and I still find issues, they will be pointed out. How can you grow was an author if you only want to hear and see the good of your work?


*Vent over*

Banned Book Week

Here it is again. A week in which we celebrate creativity and power of the first Amendment. It is Banned Book week and sad to say books are still constantly being banned from libraries and schools.


Here are my thoughts:


You do not have to read these books and as a parent you should read the books your child brings home.


Just because you do not like something does not mean that it applies to the person next to you.


& that is all.


This week I will display a series of books under different categories that have done something to my life and my reading experience.


I hope that after this week, you will be encouraged to read these authors and to fight against censorship.




Thoughts? Bridget Jones “Mad About Boy”

Apparently the author of the Bridget Jones serious is coming out with a new book called “Mad About Boy”

it has been over 10 years since the author Helen Fielding wrote about Ms. Jones. In this novel supposedly it is present day, Jones still keeps a diary (nothing wrong with an older woman doing that) and she is trying to text and be involved in social media/networking.

Here are my thoughts . . .  there shouldn’t be another book. It ended perfectly with everyone thinking she actually found happiness and hopefully became less goofy.  I think that Jones as a character became a bit annoying because when she was depressed she was depressed.  Grant I’ve been there before but she was over the edge; she couldn’t seem to get it together in a way.

I loved the movies! The books I am on the fence about.  Am I the only one that is no thrilled about a new Bridget Jones book?
