This was a fantastic book. I loved this particular page and the message behind it.

Hawking | Jim Ottaviani
post image

Not much nice lighting today as it has been pouring rain since about 3pm. But I'm currently reading this graphic novel ARC of Hawking. I'm not really loving this so far as a lot of it has been very technical and most of it is going over my head. I really enjoy the parts that are more about Hawking's life than the really confusing physics parts. That being said, I will finish this up this week and post a full review on my blog!

I really enjoyed this book. It hit a personal note for me as it was about the author's struggle with his Christian upbringing. I was raised in the church so I could really empathize with his struggles.

Perfect | Ellen Hopkins

I've read a lot of Ellen Hopkins' books so I was super excited to pick this one up since it's one of the few that I haven't read yet. This one is living up to her other books and it's so good! I'm over halfway through and hoping to finish it up today

This was a great book! This was suggested for me by my co-worker/friend at the library and I absolutely loved it! There are 14 volumes so I'm really looking forward to more of this story.

This book is amazing. It needs more than five stars. Mia's story was heartbreaking (you will cry) and frustrating but I loved every second of it. I just wanted to hug her and her family and her found family from the hotel and help them all.

THIS BOOK GAVE ME TOO MANY FEELINGS. I still feel like crying about it even though I'm done reading it. So good.

Murder Con | Maureen Catherine Orkwis

I really liked this book! I purchased the paperback version while I was actually at Megacon where I got to meet the author and have my book signed! I was very pleased with the mystery aspect of the book and did not see the ending coming (which is always great in a mystery!). I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a good murder mystery.

This was a great supernatural romance. I always judge a romance by if I can take out all the sex and the story is still interesting. Which this book was! I really liked the premise and the story was very good. I would recommend this to any lover of good romance books.
