friday

Hey Bookworms this will technically be going up on Saturday, but I started it on Friday just needed to finish it up. I know I was MIA for a few days or… Almost a week, but thanks to fantastic people in my life I am back! I will be scheduling my challenge post after this, but this one is about my weekend reads. Not like I’ll be sleeping with this crazy wind, but let’s get to it!

Books to Keep Me Company This Weekend

I’m only 70 pages in and it’s frustrating to not have finished, but haven’t been on my nook much so my goal is by Sunday! We’ll see if it happens though.

3. The Longest Ride by Nicholas Sparks

The Longest Ride

I’m plan on turning this in tomorrow, so we’ll see if I can listen to the last discs tonight! I am going to grab them after this post and see how far I get

4. Blue Moon by Alyson Noel

Blue Moon

If I finish the others I really want to try and get to this one. Old books provide comfort and I hope keep me from getting slumpy.

Well that’s all for now bookworms. I am going to go grab those discs and see how far I get. The wind is still going, so I’ll be up! Happy reading and I’ll have another post up by Saturday night!

30 Day Book Challenge Day 12: Sorry… We Can Still Be Friends.. (Mini Retrospection)

30 day reading challenge

Hey Bookworms! Happy 4th of July for my US readers! It’s day 12! Wow I have been doing for a while and then yesterday I realized I’ve been actively blogging for 9 months! Wow time flies! Any who today’s post was another difficult choice because I don’t tend to hate books I’ve originally loved… So… I kind of tweaked my view of the question… Just because I don’t love the book anymore doesn’t mean I have to hate it… Hope that makes sense, but let’s get started.

Day 12: A Book I Used to Love, But Don’t Anymore

Evermore by Alyson Noel

Evermore

Publisher: St. Martin’s Griffin

Date Published: February 3, 2009

Formats: Paperback, Audiobook

Rating Before: 5 out of 5 stars

Rating After: 4 out of 5 stars

I listened to the audiobook recently as a reread and a craving buy on my Nook audio app. It was only $8 and my physical copy wasn’t with me at the moment. The reader also really fit Ever’s tone when I listened to the sample and I happily paid for it. So listening to this book, it reminded me of everything I loved and believe in now when it comes to love. There are just some people you are meant to meet in your life no matter what. No matter how many lives it takes. That being said their were some behavioral issues of Ever and her friends that got on my nerves a bit now that I am no longer a teenager. Damen needed to grow up a bit too even for his age. I still really like this book and I want to reread the series over the course of the rest of the year, but I am not in love with it any more. Like said in the title I still want to be friends with this book. I still want it to comfort me on bad days, I still want it to remind me that there is more in life, that there is a thing such as fate when it comes to meeting people, and it gives me my adoration for red tulips. I would love red tulips over red roses any day.So for those of you who throw this book down for the “insta-love” get to the second book before you call it that please for me?

Any who that is all for now bookworms! Hope you enjoyed this post and have a fun and safe 4th of July! Let me know your thoughts on books you loved as a teen? Which book do you know find a characters behavior annoying in? Did I change your mind on not wanting to read this book? Let me know in the comments. Happy Reading!
