Hi, guys!! *waves* For all of my American nerds, I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!!! For everyone else, I wish you a Happy Thursday!!!
I just went to Boston with my hubby and friends so I haven’t posted in what feels like forever. The picture above was probably one of my favorites. I mentioned to our tour guide that I loved the old building that’s now a Chipotle. The information he provided blew my mind and made me stand in awe. The booknerd and history buff in me felt so sad that the integrity of such an important structure wasn’t upheld. Le sigh.
Anyway, I wanted to post a quick, spitfire overview of the books I’m way behind on reviewing. Ready? Okay (to be said like a cheerleader)
The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater was so intense that I spent the evening sighing heavily due to all the feels. I love the world Maggie creates, and her characters are always a favorite. I also heard that this is slated to be a movie. *fangirls*
NOS4A2 by Joe Hill was my first Hill novel and will certainly not be my last. Equally creepy and interesting, this book blew my brain box wide open. Also, the writing is outstanding.
The Lightening Thief by Rick Riordan was everything I imagined it would be: a fun, mythologically-packed adventure. I loved the westernized versions of the Greek gods and goddesses and demi-gods. This is a read for all the people of all the ages. Ps. The movie sucked compared to the book…obvi.
