This past week has been good reading wise. Four books. Here's some thoughts.

The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat FriendThe DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend by Kody Keplinger

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I had heard about this book awhile back. I finally decided to buy it a few months ago.

What prompted me to read it now was a post on ONTD. I read about the casting of it. My internal monologue was like: "Don't I have that book? Yes you definitely have that book. Should I read it? Yes you should definitely read it."

I started it on Saturday night. I really liked it. Bianca is a nice narrator though she did kinda get on my nerves. She's abrasive but that's how she was written. She's a pretty realistic teenage narrator.

Her relationship with her friends is what really sold me on this book. I looked the little bit on how she became friends with Casey and esp. with Jessica. I've made a lot of my friends similar ways and it really touched me.

I thought her relationship with her parents was really well done too. I mean haven't we all held something in because we didn't know to approach the other person? I mean hell I still do that.

And Wesley. Alright I'm going to admit I was rooting for her to end up with him. My ideal type is cocky. But I'm glad that he mended his ways. And I like that they bonded over their family lives.

I really enjoyed this book and I'm looking forward to reading more from the author.

The ABC's of Kissing BoysThe ABC's of Kissing Boys by Tina Ferraro

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


This was a really fun and cute book.

What stuck out to me most if the look it gives a peer pressure, bullying, and friendship in the like. I mean I know I've lost some friends over the years but I don't think I've been involved in a situation like Parker's but I could totally empathize with Becca.

Chrissandra (Her name annoys me) got what she deserved. She was so petty and I'm glad Parker came to realize it.

Tristan was really cute.

I really enjoyed this book. It was groundbreaking or anything but it was a nice read.

Biggest Flirts (Superlatives, #1)Biggest Flirts by Jennifer Echols

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This was my first book by Ms. Echols but it won't be the last if the rest are anything like this.

Where do I start?

Tia is a breath of fresh air. I want to say that I've just started to get into young adult fiction so maybe something has changed since I last read but Tia is nothing like the YA heroine I'm used to.

I mean for one Tia seems to have more personality. And she's complicated and she's funny. I don't know but compared to the books I've read before Tia seems to burst off the page. It's weird that I didn't notice it before but I guess you wouldn't notice if you don't have something to compare it too.

And the teenagers in this book seem realistic. Like I could see my former self and my friends as these kids you know?

I just really feel like this book was authentic and I greatly enjoyed it and I can't wait to read the rest of the series.

Perfect Chemistry (Perfect Chemistry, #1)Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Cute. Intense. The Epilogue was cheesy but it made me smile.



View all my reviews

I was just thinking about Perfect Chemistry. It was a good book. It didn't wow me like some books but I really enjoyed it. I mean I stayed in the bathtub for an extra thirty minutes reading it. And like I said that epilogue was cheesy as fuck but as I enjoyed the HP epilogue I didn't really mind it. It was really cute.

I've got more books from the library to read.

Wide Sargasso SeaWide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I had heard of this book before through it's connection with Jane Eyre. But I put off reading for awhile.

It was until I read a postcolonial criticism of that I really felt the urge to read it. I wanted to buy it but then I realized that the library had a copy.

So I checked it out and I think now after finishing it I will buy my own copy.

The prose reads easily. I feel like the word I would describe the writing as is smooth. I don't know if that makes sense but it just flowed along. The footnotes were really helpful as well.

I felt like I could get along with Antoinette. I felt like I could empathize with her and that is very important when I'm reading.

Strangely while I was reading Part Two I could I felt like I could empathize with Rochester as well and I still don't quite understand why but it was interesting reading from his POV. The only compliant I might have is that he didn't seem quite as...brash as he did in Jane Eyre. He seemed more subdued but I felt like the whole book felt like that.

Part Three was the shortest. I was waiting for the end and I felt like Rhys described it beautifully. This was a really beautiful book.

I don't know how I feel about audiobooks.

On one hand I like listening to them. I used to be frustrated when I tried to read along with them in my book. Axed that and just started to listen.

But see if I listen to an audiobook in its entirety can I count that as a read book? Have I 'technically' read or have I just listened to it?

It feels a bit to my mind like cheating since I didn't like sit down and read it from beginning to end. Then also I sometimes tune out and I miss stuff. I mean I guess I do that when I glance over the boring parts.

So basically I don't know how I feel about audiobooks.

Girl in Need of a Tourniquet: Memoir of a Borderline PersonalityGirl in Need of a Tourniquet: Memoir of a Borderline Personality by Merri Lisa Johnson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I've been looking for memoirs and biographies that focus on borderline for awhile. I finally decided to buy one and this was it.

And I'm glad I bought it. I received this book today and I have just finished reading it. I actually sat down and read the whole thing with a brief break to tell my mother "This book is it. This book is everything."

I liked the way it was structured with anecdotes and brief excerpts from psych literature and sometimes normal literature. I immediately connected to the author when she opened comparing herself to Lisa Lopes from TLC. I liked that this book didn't seem stuffy. It was raw and real. The emotions she felt I feel too.

Like for example she writes about when she was diagnosed she googled it and she wrote "I'm going to be the best borderline." I mean...that is me to a T.

And she wrote about using her intelligence as a shield...again me to a T.

This was a beautiful book and I heartily recommend it.

Awhile ago I bought this book on antidepressants. The title is Coming of Age on Zoloft and it's by Katherine Sharpe. I started reading it again today because of what happened this morning and I think I really needed it. I empathize with a lot of it especially the parts where the interviewees are talking about a diagnosis being a label. I especially agree with the fact that it makes you feel like a part of group and the feeling that you aren't alone and that there are others out there who know how you feel. So if you've ever taken an antidepressant of any kind I really rec this book. I'm only about 100 pages in but it's really therapeutic to read.

When I woke up I went and took a bath and I started reading this book on interviews with author. It's one of the Paris Review books. I had thought I ordered the women's writers one but I didn't. But the interview I read was with P.G. Wodehouse who's name I vaguely recognized but I did recognize the character Jeeves at least from that AskJeeves search engine.

I've just finished reading another interview. This one. I've never read any of her stuff but I would very much like to now. I love reading interviews of any kind really but especially about other authors and with artists. I like getting into a person's mind and their thought processes.

I listened to Lorde's album streaming the other day and I've just thought to think of looking for it on Spotify. I knew it was coming out but I wasn't sure when exactly. I really like 400 Lux.

I am obsessively checking the ratings for Sleepy Hollow. It went down by a million and half for the second episode but it still has pretty good ratings at 8.59 million. I really want this show to get a second season. Like I said somewhere else I haven't been this excited about a show since I started Scandal.

I started making some icons as well. I made another batch of Community icons and you can find them at [livejournal.com profile] buttercup_magic I was too lazy to put them up on DW haha.

I keep sleeping and thus I keep having strange as fuck dreams. The last one my dad died *knocks on wood* and the one before that was like in high school and then it turned into apocalypse and then Martel swooped in like the motherfucking Batman and rescued me and then made a speech and then burnt shit down and like when we in the sky the fire looked like it was on top of a birthday cake. WTF? I swear to god I actually dreamed this shit.

I've download some fractions sheets and I'm going to work on those today and whatnot. I'm still working on my languages.

And I finally got the book. It is really heavy which I really like and I love the pages and the layout and AH. I'm such a book nerd.

Oh and I found an affordable vet near the house. I still have to get a carrier and I need to check exactly how much will an exam be. But I think I'm going to take him out that one. It's on our normal route but I'm going to take after we get everything done so I can stay with him. Bisco is a little shy around new people.

So this motherfucking rant has been brewing in my mind for awhile.

Okay so check out these links if you would. First the science fiction literary criticism tag on BN Link and now the romance fiction literary criticism tag Link.

Now do you see what I see? There are at least 2,500 products under the science fiction tag. But the romance fiction tag has less than 200. Um...wtf?

See I was just ranting about this on twitter. Why in the hell is science fiction more deserving of academic attention? I mean both genres are categorized as genre fiction compared to the more serious literary fiction. But the romance criticism is woefully underused and if you look a good number of those books are on Jane Austen which apparently is the only romance that is acceptable to like. WHAT?

Perhaps I am thinking too much of this. But dammit the hate the romance genre gets. It's a genre for a women's fantasies. So motherfucker? Like science fiction and hell like any genre isn't somebody's fantasy? Why does the romance genre get automatically hated. You know why I'm thinking it is? SEXISM.

And shit if I feel like just doing a whole lot of criticism and theory and whatever on the motherfuckering romance genre. Except I don't know exactly how to do that. BUT YOU BET YOUR ASS I CAN LEARN!

Late night rant that has been stewing in the depths on my mind.

Hey you guys it's Friday and thus the day that I get my check since the 1st is on a Sunday.

I'm wearing a black headband around my head and a pair of hoop earrings and I actually quite like how I look. I wrote a note to myself to get more headbands and more earrings to spruce up my appearance because I seriously don't know how to rock the short hair yet haha. But I'm getting there!

I started reading Manifesta just a little while ago. I haven't got very far into it yet though. I pained my nails plus since I'm wearing a blouse that has a lot of blue in it. I haven't decided on my shoes yet.

I just did a concentration quiz with the French months, days, and seasons. It took me about 5 minutes haha. I'm getting there okay.

Hey you guys. My sleep schedule has been out of whack lately. I mean normally I sleep during the day but I keep falling asleep in the afternoon. Now I'm up at night as usual, but I still feel tired in the body that I don't want to sit up at the desk. Wtf? I've been taking my iron regularly and I'm drinking orange juice to give myself more Vitamin C so what's up?

Have you guys heard of Course Open Ware? Apparently this a thing where they share the course materials of various courses and disciplines for free and I am just now discovering this is a thing? Fucking ace man! I've already found some women's studies courses but I haven't down and pursued them yet.

Yesterday I went through several budget lists to find a simple enough budget sheet to help me stay in control of my finances. I think the one I'm using is from a pearl site or something? I know it had pearl in the name.

Ellie Goulding is putting out a deluxe edition of Halcyon and I want that shit so bad, but the price on Amazon for the mp3 is 18.99. Now see that's not too much but I allotted myself 20 dollars for music and I want to buy the K Michelle album when my check comes. But I fucking love Ellie and the moment I heard 'You My Everything' on Skins I fucking died. I love her music man. Idk maybe I'll just listen to it on Spotify until October.

There are a lot of books (ebooks) that I want to read. A lot of them have similar themes. So what I've decided with myself is that I will buy one book a theme and save the others for another time instead of buying all of them and not having enough money for other books.

I am really enjoying this book I'm reading. It's been a hot minute so I read a paranormal but I am really fucking enjoying this mofo.

Hair wise I don't regret cutting my hair but I haven't found a way to wear it that I'm satisfied with. I've been wearing turbans for the past few days off and on haha.

So Ben Affleck is the next Batman. Might I ask why we need a new Batman this soon? Seriously wtf? I'm not really THAT pissed over the casting as I am over bringing in another Batman so damn soon. I mean shit TDKR was last fucking year! How long was it between Batman Begins and the previous Batman movie? Somebody count that shit.

That line spoken by Anakin seems to be coming back to me especially lately. I was just telling my mom that I want more than what our lives are now. I want more money. I want more knowledge. I just want it all. I want it.

There's this saying that I've heard a lot: Be thankful for what you've got. I'm tired of being thankful. I know that we aren't as worse off as we could be. That we're only in relative poverty. But is it bad that I want more than I have? I want to make a better life for myself and for my family. I just...I want more than I have. I don't think that's such a bad thing.

Another thing I was thinking about recently. Both Jay Z and Lil Wayne aren't known for being attractive right? But I've been thinking about my responses to them. Why do I find Jay Z passable? But Lil Wayne disgusting? I mean they both put down women. Sure I love Jay and Bey's relationship but the way he refers to her in some of his songs just make me disgusted. I wonder if the way I respond to them have something to do with their complexions? Jay is noticeably lighter than Wayne. Idk that was just something I was thinking about.

I finished reading A Lady Dares today and I really enjoyed it. I like that Elise didn't try to change Dorian. Because let's be real trying to change someone rarely if ever works so I appreciate seeing that.

I started a paranormal romance this evening. It's another category line. I like it so far but the hero's name is just killing me. Certainly Jones...wtf? When I read that I was like is that for real haha.

DSCI0471

I found this picture in my Flickr. I think this was in 2010 or something? I think I sort of look like Kerry Washington here especially in the eye area haha.

So I'm almost done with A Lady Dares. I don't know what's changed about me in the past few months but I don't simply read for pleasure anymore. I find myself analyzing things. I bought the Cambridge Companion to Feminist Literary Theory at the beginning of the moment and I realize that me being a feminist is affecting how I read now. I would say that the book I'm reading at the moment is leaning towards feminist ideals. I say this because the heroine often comments on what she's expected to do as a lady in Victorian society and how she rejects this if you know what I mean. Is that weird haha?

I also started reading The Secret Garden last night. I was combing over my bookshelf and for whatever reason I picked it up. I started reading the first page but I guess you could say it immediately grabbed me haha. I'm really enjoying it.

The Applause video premiered today and I have to say I enjoy the video more than I do the actual song. Yes Gaga is pretentious but I will say that I love how much she seems to put into her ~art~. Yes I do miss the Fame era and I wasn't that fond of BTW but I like Gaga. Idk I just like her schtick. I prefer Roar at the moment but I'm hoping I'll enjoy Gaga's album. I'm looking forward to both.

Hey you guys!

I was looking at one of my bookshelves today and I was I like: I love Harlequin books. No shame. I've been reading the Home Girl book but I started reading the blurbs on the back of the books I bought this month and I decided to read one. I went with the historical of course haha. I'm really enjoying it so far. It's A Lady Dares by Bronwyn Scott. I'm trying to remember if I've read anything by her before. I have this omnibus of similar Nora Roberts books, but I haven't read them yet. Lol what kind of romance fan am I? Everyone and their mother has read a Nora Roberts book.

I went in game yesterday and saved all the Sims connected to the original family through marriage or birth (Except Dylan because fuck him) and now I'm going to transfer them to a new world because my save is corrupted beyond belief. Shit man.

I'm trying to decide between Sunlit Tides and Hidden Springs. If I go with Hidden Spring, the original Bert Alto is there and I don't want to delete the original copy because I'm weird about deleting sims haha. But yeah I'm leaning towards Sunlit Tides.

I'm going to work on the fraction worksheets and read a bit more of my various books.

Hey you guys.

I forgot to write about this a few days ago, but I subscribed to the online companion to the Writer's Market book. You know that thick ass book with a list of publishers? Yeah that one. I had an old one, but it wasn't divided into genres, but the online portion can be sorted like that. I've found a few prospective publishers and I'm saving them to my folder. Possibly an agent too if I can ever finish everything.

I was on the College Confidential website and I saw someone asking if SSI counted towards the EFC and it turns out that those benefits don't and both my mother and I receive disability, so what does this mean? Will it mean that on my app, I technically won't have any income? How is this going to work?

I started reading the Feminist Activism book haha. I like it so far. I can't just choose one book to read, I want to read them all!

Okay so there was this post on ONTD talking about YouTube Vloggers and how women are underrepresented and I clicked a link to a post full of female vloggers and I clicked one.

I love these two up there. She's so young, but she seems a lot more mature than I was at her age and look at her bookshelves! I love her bookshelves!

Book wise I actually bought one sort of historical book? Helen of Troy by Margaret George. I had read her wiki and I liked what I saw, so I bought this book especially since I was thinking of writing something about Helen and her family. You always need to check out similar books in your designated genre.

So anyway I'm going to watch some more videos and listen to some music. I'm liking ZZ Ward!

Hey you guys! I started the course today and I'm enjoying it so much. While I was watching the second lecture, I got an idea for a song and the lyrics started forming in my head haha. I'm on my second verse.

I'm almost finished with Tart! I like that the author is not just focusing on the sex, but on the relationships between the three of them. I'm definitely going to read more of her work.

I was just reminiscing to my mom that she had bought this keyboard from Love Thy Neighbor, which is where she used to work during my elementary years. I used to love playing that keyboard. This was before I could read music, so I used to play by ear.

Anyway my songwriting class is happening in 2 days! I'm so excited! I need to look over the textbook. It's about a week or so until my other class starts, so I have a bit of time.

My mom is going out to pick up some food tomorrow.

I slept through the day today since I stayed up last night haha. Oh and I started this book, it's called Tart and it's erotica. Compared to the last erotica I read, this one is much better. It actually has a plot and structure. Is it weird that I don't like my porn to have any plot, but I like for my erotica to? Idk why that is. Maybe because I'm solely looking to get off with the porn? Hmmm...

Anyway that's how today went. What about y'all?

I know I haven't posted book reviews here in awhile, but you guys I absolutely loved this book. I you like romance like I do and you love humor and watching a romance develop, then I really recommend this book. It's definitely one of my favorites now.


It Happened One Midnight (Pennyroyal Green, #8)It Happened One Midnight by Julie Anne Long

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This book...this book!

This book managed to keep my attention for more than two days. From the start I absolutely loved Jonathan and Tommy. Their personalities shine through from the page. I loved how their relationship developed throughout the book. And I love how they teased each other! I was cackling so hard while reading this book.

I loved the end where Jonathan makes enough money so he be independent and be free to marry Tommy. I love how he lays things out before his Dad. He challenges him because he loves Tommy and he knows that she is what he wants.

I liked the epilogue where Violet and Miles show up. The end left me with a little hope that the family will come back together and patch up things between them. What more can you ask for?

I think I'm going to add this book to my favorites shelf. I loved it that much!
