This is a place for my opinions on what I read, some movies or whatever else I find interesting. I love reading. I can find something positive about everything I read, at least I hope I can. I understand it takes a great deal of love and effort to write a book and to get it published. An author does not set out to write a crappy book, this is/was their baby. They got up at all hours of the night to feed it.

I don't see how you can give a true review of a book rushing through it. Don't you need to savor it a bit? I don't want my opinion to discourage anyone from reading. I hope you find something here you find interesting.

I buy most of my books, I get a few ARC, and I visit my library when my funds are low. I'm not trying to get you to buy anything by my opinions on the books I've read. I don't care if you buy it, borrow it, or check it out at the library. Just read. :)

read-a-thon end of the event

1. Which hour was most daunting for you?
Hour 21
2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
Shiver, Hush,Hush, The Forest of Hands and Teeth
3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
This was my first one, I thought it was great.
4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
The support
5. How many books did you read?
6. What were the names of the books you read?
After You by Julie Buxbaum & The Secret Circle by L.J. Smith
7. Which book did you enjoy most?
They are two totally different books one chick lit. one YA I enjoyed them both.
8. Which did you enjoy least?
Same answer from 7.
9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
I thought they were great and appreciated them a lot. My advice would be just to know that you're important part of the read-a-thon so try and visit as many as you can.
10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
I wasn't able to read as much as I wanted to. I would definitely do it again but I think next time I do Cheerleader instead of Reader.


  1. I've picked up Shiver a few times to read and I guess I should keep it on my TBR list. I had stopped here yesterday to comment but for some reason your blog wouldn't let me and never showed me a place to type the word verification. I'm not even sure if this comment will go through but I thought I'd try again.

  2. I love rain too! I'm glad you had fun for your first readathon. I never read as much as I want, but it's still fun!

Book Odor Removal:

I bought a book at a library book sale, it had a strange odor. Someone gave me this suggestion to remove the smell, and it worked, so I thought I'd share.
Put the book in a ziploc bag along with 1/3 cup(more or less) of Arm & Hammer baking soda and seal shut. Leave the book alone for 2 or 3 days. It worked for me, hope it helps you too.
