Amy & Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson
I'd heard good things about this book through the blogosphere, so when I found it at the library, I didn't hesitate to pick it up. I love a good road trip story, and I think this was one of my favorites. I loved the added extras, such as Roger's playlists (he has awesome taste in music) and Amy's notes and photos. This is a definite must-read if you haven't already!
Graffiti Moon by Cath Crawley
When I saw this book in the new release section at the library, I snatched it up right away. I knew I was going to love Lucy, a girl who is convinced she loves Shadow, a Banksy-esque graffiti artist who's painted beautiful scenes all over the city.
The story is fast paced, and the the characters believable. This is one of the best novels I've read in awhile!
Stuart: A Life Backwards by Alexander Masters
I first came upon Stuart because of the television movie based on the book, staring my two favorite actors, Tom Hardy & Benedict Cumberbatch. Since I loved the film so much, I got the book out of the library.
It's not always an easy book to read, as Stuart's life was full of pain, abuse and mental illness, but it was also quite funny. I really enjoyed it.
The Fault In Our Stars-John Green
I am generally wary of over-hyped books, just because I've been burned so many times. TFIOS was on my radar, but it was a book I told myself I'd get to at some point. I talked to my mom a couple months ago and she told me that I needed to read this ASAP, I jumped behind thirty people at the library and got on the waiting list.
I'm happy to say that this is one over-hyped book that lives up to the hype. If you haven't already read it, grab it right now. It's funny, heart-felt and will make even the hardest heart sob by the end.
This was another book that had umpteen people on the list at the library before I could read it, but again, it lived up to the hype. I loved the world Ms. Meyer created, and I adored Cinder. I can't wait to read the next book in this quartet.
If you follow me on Twitter (if you don't, please do! I try to follow back most writers) you already know that I'm a nail polish nut. I've always been, but I fell out of the habit for a few years. Thanks to Pinterest, I'm back into it again. When I'm not writing or reading, I'm messing about with nail art. I made my first foray into scotch tape nail art (go here if you want to know more) and I've moved on to more complex designs.
And of course:
The Hunger Games movie lived up to my expectations. There were only a couple changes that I wasn't crazy about, but other than that, I loved it and want to see it again!
