I have been staring at a few books that just don’t make sense for quite some time now. They aren’t Quantum Physics or anything, just mismatched craziness. The problem is I can’t throw them out. One is a Barbie chronicle that any girl who grew up with Barbies would cherish like their first born….maybe. One is a St. Louis landmark book, and one is a Ripley’s believe it or not book with a super fancy 3-d cover. None of them are very “pretty” per say but I love looking through their pages and learning.
You caught a glimpse of them in this post. And I was so embarrassed of their mis-matchedness that I actually hid them in this post.
I finally decided to do something about it.
Super fast, super easy project comin atcha…
You want to know how easy this was?
I walked downstairs and dug out some pretty scrapbook paper and the I just made simple bookcovers. Twenty minutes tops.
Now I can just sit and stare at my pretty books.
Which brings me to my next point…I am so happy that publishers have started making book covers almost art-like. All of the books I have bought recently are gorgeous enough on their own I will never have to wallpaper books again. I’m not hating on Barbie and Mr. Ripley, ok maybe I am.
Have you bought any pretty books lately? Ever dressed up your library?
Reading Hunger Games ruined all other books for me.
If you haven’t read the trilogy, just do it.
I avoided it for a long time because it was what I deemed “the cool thing to do” and I like to go against the grain.
I caved when The Petersiks said they not only read it, but loved it.
Peer pressure will get you every time.
Those books blew my mind. Nothing compared…I’ve read five books since then and none of them captivated me like Katniss battling roses and junk.
I found one.
This book made me want to read it, all of it…in one day.
It is basically a Dateline special told from the crazy person’s point of view. A girl goes missing, bet you would have never guessed.
I love how it is written. It’s quirky, like they are talking to you with no big words that came out of a thesaurus to confuse you. Be prepared for shocking dirty laundry to be thrown at you which leads to moments of oh-no-they-didn’t insanity.
If you aren’t hooked right off the bat…just keep reading.
If you have ever felt crazy….read this book and you will feel much better about your life. If you are in a rocky relationship, do not…I repeat do not read this book for ideas because you will end up with a terrible mug shot all over tv, and your mom will be so disappointed.
Has anyone else read this book? What did you think?
What’s the best book you have read lately?
I need my next good read.
