About to start this. The synopsis sounds intriguing. Haven't read any of his other books. Hopefully it'll be good.
1. Staying up late.
2. Doing the litter box.
3. Playing outside with my friends and siblings during the summer.
4. Organize donations at The Rescue Mission (non-for-profit organization that helps the homeless). I still work there.
5. Just general advice, don't do drugs or drink/get drunk.

Finished this this morning. Pretty terrifying what Ebola can do to you. The author gives real-hand accounts of those who have contracted the virus, and those who have bravely fought to eradicate it.
Believe it not, this was a Christmas gift from my parents a few years ago. So better late then never.
1. I've discovered quite a few books at my job. I work at a non-for-profit organization that accepts donations, and people have donated books by the likes of James Patterson and Stephen King.
2. No, not yet.
4. I started IT about three years ago and still have yet to finish it.
I'm curious if any of you get this message while browsing through books on Libby. It's been doing this for quite awhile. I'm on Android, not sure if this is a problem on IOS. I don't get this message on OverDrive. This is really frustrating because I really like Libby. 👿
Update: I restarted my phone and now it is running smooth.
The synopsis had so much potential, but I feel it did not quite deliver. The beginning had me hooked. It started with Philip Tonka, a former WW2 veteran having almost every bone in his body fractured (of varying degrees) by a sound in Africa that is supposed to only make you sick.
After that though, it kind of started to fall. What had me going was seeing how Philip would progress with such a crippling injury. By the end, I had no clue...
Had high hopes for this after reading Bird Box, but I will say, it was decent. The book focuses on two seventeen-year-old's who find (as the name of the book says), a house at the bottom of a lake, while canoeing.
The book is quite short, under 120 pages, so definitely a book you could read in a day. I'd say the thing that kept me reading was to find out what mysterious things would happen with the house.
I finished this about a couple months ago, but forgot to put a review on here.
I really liked how the author made you feel the stresses of being a caretaker and the effects it can have on you mentally. As that is the case with the story's main protagonist, Sophie Howland, whom has to take care of her elderly (Mum). It is revealed early in the book that Sophie's mom has early onset Alzheimer's. Sophie also has to deal with her mom's... (cont.) 👇
Hope all of you had a fantastic day today! I just wanted to share with you what I got for Christmas. Pretty much all non-fiction books except for Bird Box (saw the movie by the way). I also got a CD for a band that I listen to and a Regal movie gift card.
My family and I had a laid back day today. Didn't do much, other than seeing my Grandma. Anyways, have a great rest of your day everyone! 😊 Merry Christmas! 🎅🎄🎁
Currently reading this. It's pretty good so far! I liked that the build-up to Eleanor getting to Hill House wasn't rushed. Can't to watch the show! 📺
Didn't really care too much for this book. Felt like I was reading this just to finish it. The only good thing I can probably take from this book is the writing. I'll have to wait and see if Cash's other book, The Last Ballad, lives up to my expectations.
1. I haven't read funny books yet, but both of Jenny Lawson's books-- Let's Pretend This Never Happened, and Furiously Happy-- seem pretty funny.
2. Anything from NeedToBreathe.
3. My bed.
4. My twin brother.
5. When someone holds a door open for me.
1. The movie was different than the book, as is the case with all book-to-screen adaptions.
3. No, but I wish. Maybe I will later this month.
4. Never. If my family and I do, then it's for a birthday.
5. Worst: Having to do my co-workers work for one of my jobs, cause some of them still can't follow directions/rules. Best: Can't think of anything.
1. 3rd grade. Whenever it was a sunny day out, we didn't have any homework.
2. Cinematography. I particularly liked this class because my teacher for this class was also my English teacher the previous year. He is pretty cool.
5. Tag, you're it!
Opening day for the #ASOIAF giveaway is finally here! And OMG, thank you @CrowCAH for all the awesome goodies! Everything is awesome! The only thing is, I notice that the big book is in a different language. I was thinking if you could tell me the name of the book, then I can just get the book (in English) myself. But, other than that, I love everything!
P.S. Happy Birthday GRRM! 🎉🎈
1. The Shawshank Redemption
2. Going to Niagara Falls (Canadian side) when I was little.
3. Don't really have one, but if I had to choose, I'd pick memoir.
5. If you could go back and change one thing in your life, what would it be?
Post 1: Annabelle: Creation/Original Halloween movie; KitKat; Bird Box; All the decorations!; Supernatural books for the win; Witches are *itches 😂; a combination of a black cat, a rat, and a bat, now that's scary.
Post 2: Pumpkin; Fireplace; Pie; Hoot-Hoot; Addams Family; Anne Rice; Halloween: 👍
Post 3. Nay for all three.
Words cannot describe how I feel about this book. Just an absolutely fascinating book that is chocked full of interesting facts and stories. If there is one book that everyone should read at least once in their lifetime, it's this. Going to put this as one of the best books I've read this year, it's that good.

Thanks so much @laur89 for the books and the bookmark! And I heard great things about Sleeping Beauties! And apparently I must have forgotten the rules of the swap. I just realized as I opened your packages, Laura, that I didn't include a favorite book of mine and a note explaining why it was my favorite book. I'm really sorry, but I hope you enjoy your gifts!

1. Right now, I am OBSESSED with my local grocery store's pumpkin flax granola. If you have a Wegmans near you, I HIGHLY recommend you get this. Also, buy the family pack. It's $9.
1.) Binging Game of Thrones. On season 3 episode 2. Loving it so far! Also, I'm getting out work a couple hours on Sunday due to the heat.
2. 1. Currently reading Replay, but haven't been reading it as much as I should.
3. Summer 100% I HATE winter.
4. A couple of years ago, I saw a Daughtry concert at the New York State Fair. Breaking Benjamin is coming this year, but I won't be going.
1. It wasn't recent, maybe a month or two ago, but while I was eating dinner in the family room, I saw an opossum on my deck. We never get opossums here in Liverpool, NY. And I wasn't able to get a picture of it.
2. A waffle, a bowl of oatmeal, some almonds, and some chamomile tea.
3. Relive your life.
4. A shoe box that has a little bit of orange.
5. Probably 5'10"/5'11"
Currently "binging" Game of Thrones. I'm planning on watching two episodes a day, so I don't know if that constitutes as binging. Anyway, I got a lot of catching up. Currently on Season 1 episode 8. No spoilers!
1. Jennifer Lawrence. Such a great actress.
2. No. I have a part time job during the week, so I don't have to get up in the morning.
4. A Kitchen Aid mixer
5. A Library. I would go to the library more often because the books are free.
