Tour Schedule Title: Loving Your Lies Author: Piper Shelly Release Date: January, 2013 Pages: 404, Paperback Goodreads Rating: 4.11 stars My Rating: 4/5 stars My Content Rating: PG-13 (Kissing and some talk of sex, but no actual sex) Summary from Goodreads: Julian is drop-dead gorgeous, annoyingly provocative, and he’s fast becoming her best friend. But he also has a secret that makes the little hairs on her arms stand on end… My name is Jona Montiniere, and that’s pretty much the only good thing to say about me.  I’m seventeen, I’m snarky, and I’m a crap-load of trouble. Or so they say. But what did they expect from me really, when they dumped me in an orphanage at age five? That I’d grow up to become the new first lady? Nah, I think it’s much more fun to raid Camden Market in London with my friend, Debby. She’s cool. She lives on the street. I learned so much… Read more »

Top Ten Tuesday – Top Ten Books (On My Fall 2013 TBR List)

Top Ten Tuesday 0

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday is: Top Ten Books On My Fall 2013 TBR List I’ve got TONS of books on my TBR list and I’m not always so good at following a “schedule” – there are often books that I’m really looking forward to that I somehow don’t get to for quite a while.  But there are some books that I’ve been meaning to read for a while that I NEED to read soon, so I’m putting them here.  Once they’re in print, I have to read them, right? Most of these are books that everyone else has already read and loved!  (Click on the covers to see these books on Goodreads).           So, are you ashamed that I haven’t read most of these already?  I need to get reading already!!

Top Ten Tuesday (Should be Movies)

Top Ten Tuesday (Should be Movies)

Top Ten Tuesday 0

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday is: Top Ten Books That Should be Movies (or TV Shows)           Unwind by Neal Shusterman – This book has an amazing premise and presents so many questions about the importance of life and freedom.  It’s also very action-packed, so I think it would play well on the big screen. The Selection by Keira Cass – Considering how much people like shows like The Bachelor, this one should be a natural, right? Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins – This could translate into a sweet romance on screen and it would definitely have a huge following.  Of course, they’d have to find the perfect people to play the leads or everyone would revolt! Evertaster by Adam Glendon Sidwell – This is a middle grade novel and the whole time I was reading it, I kept thinking, this should be a kids’ movie!  It was funny and full of great action scenes and it just felt like… Read more »
