A Friday Five (#6) Tilt by Ellen Hopkins


Each Friday I'll feature one of my favorite books or a book I read in the last week and come up 5 words to describe it.  View it as a super mini review.  This week I'm featuring Tilt by
I don't know if it makes a difference that I didn't read the first book that featured these characters  which is told from the perspective of the adults.

Feature & Follow Friday (#6)


The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee’s View and Alison of Alison Can Read.

This week's Question:

Tell us about the most emotional scene you’ve ever read in a book – and how did you react?

Review: Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

Quick confession:  I’m old y’all. Maybe too old to be reading YA, but really, I don’t care.  The reason I made this confession is that while reading Eleanor & Park I completely related.  Now, I’m not as old as Eleanor or Park would be now, in 2013, and I wasn’t in high school when this story takes place, but I remember so many references made in this book. 

The cool girl with the Swatch, who was mentioned in the book?  Absolutely.  My Swatch had a blue band, a pink face with baby blue polka dots.  Even more impressive, was my older brother’s best friend who had 3 Swatches!  He wore them all at the same time, set to different time zones.  He was super cool.  He and my brother used to listen to all this awesome music that I learned to love: The Cure, Social Distortion, New Order, Joy Division, The Smiths, The Smithereens, and so many others. Waterbeds were so cool, and I wanted one so badly, and while my telephone wasn’t a Ferrari, it was a pair of lips.

Teaser and Top Ten Tuesday (#5) 03/26/13


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

From page 310
"God, Mik, I just want everything back like it was."
"He parks, comes around to open my door, and when I get out, he kisses me so sweetly I can barely remember why I was so angry.
 Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

This Week's Top ten is Top Ten  Books I Recommend The Most.
Although I am constantly pushing books on people, I usually recommend the same books over and over.  So 10 is a challenge.
