(2) The Marriage Book // Bookish Blurb

The Marriage Book by Lisa Grunwald and Stephen Adler

I really enjoyed this. It’s a large collection of quotes related to marriage. Some of it is advice and some of it is totally ridiculous and some of it is stuff that used to be advice but now is ridiculous. It’s a A to Z guide where each letter has topics starting with Adam and Eve and ending with Zoloft.

Overall I really enjoyed this book but it took me forever to finish (like months but I stopped to read other books in between). It was a good book to read before bed since it was easy to read in chunks.

Also yeah me for reading nonfiction!

Top books I read in 2017 aka books I would read again

Hello and welcome to my TOP BOOKS OF 2017. I know I’m a little late in the game but if you read my last post you’ll know that I took a bit of a break from blogging. Better late than never I guess. This post was a lot of fun to figure out. I really liked being able to look back at all the books I read (2017 was the first year I kept track of what books I read) and it was interesting to realize how few I would actually read again. Also a few of the books I read in 2017 were rereads already so I wasn’t sure if they belonged on this list or not but I tacked them on at the end in their own category.  So read on to see what the best books I read in 2017 were.  You can click on the title of each to read a full post on it.

Hello (again)!

Hello,

You probably didn’t notice, but I haven’t posted in a few weeks. I decided to take a little time off to readjust and just figure out what I was doing and what I wanted to do. Blogging was not as fun as it had been and that made me worried. I didn’t want to be doing something supposedly as a hobby if it wasn’t fun. So I took a break but now I’m back.

This is what I’ve decided. I think I’m just going to do one post a week (probably on Mondays unless someone objects … which is unlikely given that no one really reads my blog anyway) and that the goal will be mostly to document what I read. I really enjoyed being able to look back at what I read last year and see what types of books I read and just how many I was able to read. That being said, I will probably still post some other things when I feel like it but I won’t push myself to do one of those posts every week as well.

I thought about going right back into regular posts but I felt like maybe I should do a little blurb expressing my thoughts (because what the world needs right now is definitely some more opinions). Also this way I have another post written (since I’m terrified of not having something to post apparently).

I hope you are all having a wonderful start to the year. Let’s just say I’m looking forward to February (February is great!).

Until next time,

-The Indecisive Dragon

 

 

Books I read in 2017 (by genre ish)

Hello! and Welcome! to all the books I read in 2017. I read a total of 64 books (Yay me!) and here’s a list of links to all of them. They are somewhat organized by genre but I find that it is often hard to put books (like everything) into nice little boxes. The numbers correlate with the order in which I read them if you are curious. I wish I could attach a picture of all these books but I get most of my books from the library so I don’t actually have copies of any of these books (with a few exceptions being the books I read on my Kindle). Also hopefully soon I will have my top books of 2017. I really enjoyed looking back at all the books I read. Continue reading “Books I read in 2017 (by genre ish)”

(64) Gilded Cage // Bookish Blurb

Gilded Cage by Vic James

This is a YA fantasy novel set in a dystopian future where there are a few people who are able to use magic. Those who are unable to use magic must spend ten years of their life as a slave. This could be in a factory or it could be in a manor where the “Equals” live their lives of luxury.

This book follows the Hadley family as they embark on their “years”. Even from the beginning everything starts to fall apart. Continue reading “(64) Gilded Cage // Bookish Blurb”

(62)The Bear and the Nightingale // Bookish Blurb

The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden

This book was on my library’s top books of 2017 and I had heard about it elsewhere so i thought I would give it a go. Basically this book is set in historical Russia and is about a girl who can see demons (or spirits depending on who you’re talking to) and Winter’s brother who is escaping from his prison. Continue reading “(62)The Bear and the Nightingale // Bookish Blurb”

(60)The Smell of Other People’s Houses // Bookish Blurb

The Smell of Other Peoples Houses by Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock

This is a teen book following the lives of a group of teenagers in Alaska mostly set in the 70s. It follows them throughout roughly a year as they struggle with what life throws at them.

This is a very short book and I read it all in one sitting but it is a rather powerful book.
Although this is technically a teen book I don’t think it is just for a teen audience. It deals with deep and complex issues of belonging and family as well as just describing what it is like to be part of a poor community where violence is prominent Continue reading “(60)The Smell of Other People’s Houses // Bookish Blurb”
