Book Reviews

Starstruck and Infamous by Lauren Conrad
I just wanted to finish this trilogy. I think I mentioned it in my other review of her books but I mostly enjoyed reading them just to see which parts may have been real. It also nice to get a behind the scenes glance of what really happens on “reality” TV.

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
This book touched me. I continued to think about it after I was finished reading it. I went back to read certain parts that really stuck out to me. Since I have Depression and have had the suicidal thoughts I can see Hannah’s point of view and why she killed herself. But I can also see how she didn’t try her hardest to get help and how she should have taken more blame for situations in her life which led to her taken her life. By the way, I’m not giving e away. You start the book knowing Hannah has committed suicide. Hannah’s stories are told from tapes she recorded in advance. Have you read it? I want to discuss and analyze this book someone. 
This One Is Mine by Maria Semple

I first read Where’d You go Bernadette because I kept seeing it pop up on Instagram and Twitter. I need Maria Semple to write another book. Like yesterday. She writes great characters and i am sure it is due to her screenwriting background. 

Divergent by Veronica Roth
I had a really hard time getting into this book at first. It didn’t suck me in like TheHunger  Games did. I know it is not fair to compare each Young Adult Dystopian book to The Hunger Hames but oh, well. The Hunger Games trilogy was amazing. Divergent started slow for me then got really good. Then it got sort of slow again and picked back up. Kind of like a roller coaster or, Ferris wheel, perhaps (if you read the book you’ll get it). I look forward to seeing the movie. I think this will be another Twilight situation in which I enjoy the movies more than the books. I have not read the rest of the books yet so hopefully they get better.

Drinking and Dating by Brandi Glanville 
If I am going to read non-fiction or a biography, this is going to be it. I want gossip, I want behind the scenes, I want the real deal. I enjoyed her first book  more than this one. But it was fun trying to figure out whoshefoolin was talking about. What I didn’t enjoy with both books is she dropped the F-Bomb So. Many. Times. I myself have been known to use the word here and there (and everywhere) but it was used too much in the books. I don’t know what she’ll write about yet. Hopefully she will tell us the real deal about what is going on while filing RHOBH but it will most likely be once the show is cancelled or she gets canned. 
I have two other books lined up but I’m awlays up for more suggestions. Tell me, what are you reading?
