Franklin Release Date: June 12, 2014 Pages: 152 Goodreads Rating: 4.57/5 Stars My Rating: 4/5 Stars My Content Rating: PG (Nothing more than kissing) Summary from Goodreads: Seventeen-year-old Oliver Wendell Holmes (Yes, his parents are just that peculiar, but his brother’s name is Sherlock, so it could have been worse) knows that he’s different. He’s quirky, awkward, and he’s okay with that. Oliver also likes making lists-meticulous procedures for achieving his goals, step-by-step. Whether it’s “How to Get an A in Chemistry” or “How to Get Accepted to MIT,” he has a process, and it’s worked for him so far. He doesn’t even care that the popular kids mock him. Oliver’s got his eye on the prize. So when he decides it’s time to declare his feelings for Ainsley Bishop, the girl of his dreams, it’s only natural for him to make a list-… Read more »

Sorry I’ve been missing!!

Sorry I’ve been missing!!

Image courtesy of digitalart / FreeDigitalPhotos.net Sorry I’ve been missing this week.  We’ve had a bit of a health scare in the Hewitt household.  My daughter has been in the hospital since Monday due to an infection of some type in her shoulder (the doctors’ best guess at this point is that it’s a bone infection that we caught early).  She’ll be here in the hospital until at least tomorrow (but most likely longer), so I’m not exactly sure when I’ll be back to business as usual here at Feed Your Fiction Addiction.  Hopefully the IV antibiotics she’s on will do the trick and everything will be back to normal soon!!

Let’s Discuss – Insta-love. Can it ever work?

Let's Discuss 6

“Love is an Open Door” from Frozen.  A lesson about the perils of insta-love!  🙂 If you read my reviews regularly, you know that insta-love is usually a major negative for me. You all know what I’m talking about – boy meets girl and both are instantly drawn to each other. They’ve never felt this way about anyone before. Surely no one else in the world could ever complete them the way that this person they met five minutes ago can. It must be love. It’s a great way to ruin an otherwise excellent book.   But there have been times where insta-love (or something akin to it – an instant connection or attraction) was involved and I found myself enjoying the book anyway. At first I get nervous. I find myself waiting for the horribleness of insta-love to kick in and overshadow everything good in the book. But it… Read more »

It’s time for my June Random Reads (a fun meme hosted by I’m Loving Books). The idea is to pick one random book from your Goodreads To-Read list (using Random.org) to read within the month.  As I mention every month, I am in love with this meme!  This is such a great way to make sure that I actually read some of those books that have been in my TBR list for eons.This month I decided to once again choose two Random Reads.  For the first, I limited my Random Read choices to books that I actually own since I have so many of them that I’ve been wanting to read.  (I did this by just creating a Random Reads shelf on Goodreads).  I planned to use my general TBR for the second choice, but ended up using a book that I didn’t actually own from the Random Reads list (since it got chosen… Read more »
