Stuff on my Lips // Random Randomness

As someone who gets dry lips a lot, I have recently (ie in the past few years) become interested in trying out new lip products and basically I wanted to make a post about all the things I’ve tried since I was going to throw them away and wanted to remember what worked (or didn’t).

(19) Lost in a Good Book // Bookish Blurb

Image result for lost in a good bookLost in a Good Book by Lasper Fforde

This is the second book in the Thursday Next series (the first being The Eyre Affair). I loved the first one so much I was excited to pick up this one. I think my expectations were a bit too high but I still enjoyed this book overall. Again there was a general confusion most of the way through the book since nothing is ever explained. Unlike the first book where I felt like I understood most of the stuff (since I have read Jane Eyre), this book made me realize just how many ‘classics’ I haven’t read. That didn’t necessarily detract from the book but it did make me feel like I was missing out on stuff.

The premise of this book is that Thursday’s husband is erased from history and in order to get him back, Thursday has to get the guy out of the book that they trapped him in in the first book. This involves Thursday having to learn how to get into books without her uncle’s invention and with the help of other book characters. Continue reading “(19) Lost in a Good Book // Bookish Blurb”

(18) Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone // Bookish Blurb

My parents recently gave me all the Harry Potter books so I decided to reread them. It’s been quite a while since I read them so I started (where most people start) at the beginning.

This book is mostly about Harry Potter learning that’s he’s a wizard and getting acquainted with Hogwarts. There is also a plot all about the sorcerer’s stone but that is almost secondary in this book. I always liked this book because of how much the Dursleys (the people Harry are raised with) are present in it. I know we are supposed to hate them but part of me is very fascinated by them.

(17) Immortal Reign // Bookish Blurb

This is (I’m pretty sure) the last book in the Falling Kingdoms series. In it we follow our characters as the Kindred try to finish the ceremony that was interrupted last time and allow them to reach their full potential and destroy the world. Because, you know, when you’re an immortal force you kinda don’t like humans (apparently). Continue reading “(17) Immortal Reign // Bookish Blurb”

(16) Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda // Bookish Blurb

Basically, Simon is a closet gay high schooler who ends up emailing some other gay kid at his school but they don’t know who each other is. And they fall in love via email but Simon is forced to come out to the school all the while trying to find this boy who is stealing his heart. It’s a very quick easy read especially since it goes back and forth between the narration and the emails they exchange. Continue reading “(16) Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda // Bookish Blurb”
