Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari

Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari

Howdy Howdy Bookworms! Y’all know I’m a sucker for audio books and celebrity memoirs… But only funny celebrities, because the amount I don’t want to read about some celebutaunt’s spiritual awakening is STAGGERING. But. Basically anyone who was a regular on Parks & Recreation who writes a book? I will give that a whirl. (I haven’t gotten to your books yet, Ron Swanson, but I will one day. One day when… Read more »

The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George

The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George

Bonjour Bookworms! You know how deep down everyone wants to own a bookstore on a river barge? I didn’t know that was a thing I wished for either, until I read The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George. *I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley. I pinky promise this review will be honest in spite of the freebie.* Monsieur Perdu runs a little bookshop…. Read more »

Whiskey and Charlie by Annabel Smith

Whiskey and Charlie by Annabel Smith

G’Day Bookworms! I know there are a number of book bloggers out there who have struck up virtual friendships with authors, but I’m not really one of them. Of course, there’s always an exception to the rule, isn’t there? Annabel Smith runs a super fun blogging meme called Six Degrees of Separation (with fellow author Emma Chapman) and she’s always been such a peach. A few months back, I purchased… Read more »

The Girl With All the Gifts by MR Carey

The Girl With All the Gifts by MR Carey

Holy Macaroni, Bookworms. I’m not sure how coherent this post is going to be, because I’m still trying to figure out how to get my jaw off the floor. I recently decided to put my Audible subscription on hold because Scribd is a better deal for my voracious audio book appetite at this time. However, before pulling the proverbial plug, I needed to use up one last credit. I checked my… Read more »

Zone One by Colson Whitehead

Zone One by Colson Whitehead

Happy Monday, Bookworms! Got a case of the Mondays? Perhaps you’re feeling a bit… zombie-like? You’re in luck, because today we’re going to talk about Colson Whitehead’s novel Zone One (yes, there are zombies!) As with any number of the books I read, I was recommended this book by the brilliant Sarah Says Read. That girl never steers me wrong. Zone One is set in the post zombie-apocalyptic world. The US government… Read more »

Inside the O’Briens by Lisa Genova

Inside the O’Briens by Lisa Genova

Hey Bookworms, How’s it going? Read any good books about devastating neurological disorders lately? No? Well, you’re in luck! Lisa Genova is at it again and Inside the O’Briens is pretty fab. And not JUST because one of the main characters is named Katie. She’s actually named Kathryn (with a “y”) because apparently her parents and mine were both illogical enough to pair Kathryn with a “y” with Katie with an… Read more »

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

Greetings Bookworms, There’s little that drives me as crazy as when EVERYONE is raving about a book and I haven’t read it yet. Right now, that book is The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins, and heck yes I read it! How could I not? I mean, everyone is calling it the next Gone Girl (review). I wouldn’t necessarily go there, but it’s still a good book, so let’s get to it!… Read more »

Monkey Beach by Eden Robinson

Monkey Beach by Eden Robinson

Greetings Bookworms! You may have noticed over the past month or so that I’ve been on a little bit of a Native American author kick. Since it’s been such an awesome ride so far, when I was contacted by Open Road Media to check out Monkey Beach by Eden Robinson, I jumped at the offer. *I received a complimentary copy of this book for review consideration. This in no way… Read more »

Banned Books Week & Diversiverse: The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison

Banned Books Week & Diversiverse: The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison

Hey there, Bookworms! It’s one of my FAVORITE weeks of the whole year. That’s right kiddos, it’s BANNED BOOKS WEEK! This week I’m going to be basking in the glory of books that have been banned and challenged. I’m planning to, as my friend Shelli is fond of saying, “feed two birds with one scone” (because why would you want to kill the birds?) and chose banned books by authors… Read more »

The Silver Linings Playbook by Matthew Quick

The Silver Linings Playbook by Matthew Quick

Greetings Bookworms! Today we’re going to talk more about my new found obsession with audio books, and a book turned Oscar-winning-movie (which OF COURSE I haven’t seen, because I am the WORST at being relevant when it comes to cinema.) You guessed right. It’s time for The Silver Linings Playbook by Matthew Quick! Audio books typically begin with a short musical interlude. I rarely take notes while I’m reading/listening to… Read more »
