Hi 🙂

I was nominated by Cintia @ Reflection of the Lights for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award! I’ve already been nominated before, but I am always down to do it again! Thank you for nominating me Cintia! I love her blog, so you should totally go check it out! 🙂

The Questions:

1: What’s a popular book/series that you’re just not into?

16143347+ We Were Liars by E. Lockhart. I know that SO many people loved this book so much, but I just did not like it at all. You can check out my review on this book over here.

2: How many books do you aim to read every month?
+ I don’t really have a set goal that I aim to read each month. Maybe 3-4 and that’s just books that I physically read. I listen to a lot of audiobooks throughout the month.

3: What’s the last book that you fell in love with? Do you remember the first?

157908332767052+ The last book that I absolutely fell in love with was Game by Barry Lyga. It’s the sequel to I Hunt Killers. I’m not sure the exact first book, but the book that jumped started my love for reading again was The Hunger Games.

4: I like to read because…
+ It’s the perfect escape from the real world. I love being able to take myself away for a little while and live in another world. It’s nice to forget life for awhile and jump into someone else’s.

5: A place you would like to visit.
+ Non-bookish place, I would love to visit Washington DC. I am actually hoping to make this happen sometime next year! It’s definitely been one of the top places I want to visit.

6: Paperback vs hardback vs ebook. Why?
+ I love them all! I have different reasons why I like them all though. I prefer hardcovers, because I think they are prettier (lol) and you don’t risk bending the cover. Paperbacks I like because they are cheaper and if I know that I want to own a physical copy, but I don’t have the money for a hardcover, I will get a paperback. E-books I like because it’s convenient and cheap. I also prefer to buy e-books of books that I wouldn’t see myself wanting to actually spend the extra money for physical copies (or ugly book covers, but I want to read, I’ll just get e-books lol).

7: What do you like about YA?
+ Something I like about YA is that there are so many different worlds and it’s fun. There’s magic and monsters and for adults, it’s nice to go back to being a kid sometimes. I also feel like YA is more relatable to a lot of people as far as characters go and depending on the YA genre, the issues feel feel.

8: What do you dislike about YA?
+ Something I dislike about YA is that a lot of the books feel the same, just different character names and places. It can get boring reading the same type of story over and over again.

9: Favourite way of acquiring books (used bookstore, online, etc.)
+ ALL OF THE ABOVE?! 😛 I mostly order books on Amazon, because they are so much cheaper. It’s nice checking out used bookstores though and I do try to do that more as well.

10: Song you’re obsessed with right now.
+ I have so many songs that I am currently obsessed with. I’ll link you to a few songs that I love right now – the links will go to YouTube.

In Remission by The Menzingers.
Gold Rush by Knuckle Puck.
Evergreen by Knuckle Puck.
So stoked about the new Knuckle Puck album!

Thoughts: ARC: Trouble is a Friend of Mine.

Trouble is a Friend of Mine by Stephanie Tromly
4 OUT OF 5 STARS.

**I was sent this e-ARC by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.**

I really enjoyed this book so much! I’m glad I was given the opportunity to read it. Trying to form the words to describe this book is so hard though! It was strange, but totally hilarious. I was laughing pretty non-stop throughout the book. There were tons of “what is going on” moments and “wait, what!?” moments. STRANGE THINGS HAPPEN!

The cast of characters were pretty great. Digby was hands down one of the bests! He reminded me so much like Sherlock from the BBC show. I thought he was brilliant and super witty. He made this book what it is. It’s so hard not to fall in love with him! I also enjoyed Zoe and Henry as well; among some others too! I like the mystery aspect of it thrown in too. I love a good mystery and this book put a little twist on that with how the characters were and all the little (and sometimes big crazy) things going on.

This book is a fun, silly, random, and strange read. Some things are totally ridiculous, but kind of in a good way! It’ll definitely keep you laughing, that’s for sure! There are a few little twists, which were nice. I was a little disappointed with how the book ended, but I’m hoping it ended the way that it did so there can be a sequel! I mean…there has to be! I do recommend this book, especially if you need a fun little pick me up! So strange, but totally works!

Goodreads Description: Preparing to survive a typical day of being Digbys friend wasn’t that different from preparing to survive the apocalypse. Her first day not in school (because she cut) in her new hometown that will soon be her old hometown (because she’s getting out of Dodge as fast as she can) Zoe meets Digby. Or rather, Digby decides he’s going to meet Zoe and get her to help him find missing teenager. Zoe isn’t sure how, but Digby—the odd and brilliant and somehow…attractive?—Digby always gets what he wants, including her help on several illegal ventures.

Before she knows it, Zoe has vandalized an office complex with fake snow, pretended to buy drugs alongside a handsome football player dressed like the Hulk, had a throw-down with a possible cult, and, oh yeah, saved her new hometown (which might be worth making her permanent hometown after all.) A mystery where catching the crook isn’t the only hook, a romance where the leading man is decidedly unromantic, a story about friendship where they aren’t even sure they like each other—Trouble is a Friend of Mine is a YA debut you won’t soon forget.

Have you read this book? If so, what did you think about it? Do you think you’ll be adding this book to your TBR? Let me know! 🙂
