Harper Collins First Look

I’ve mentioned it before, but Harper Collins has a cool program called First Look where they send you advance reader copies of books and you give a review. Well, I just found one of my reviews on their website! http://www.harpercollins.com/books/9780060854232/Storm_Runners/index.aspx#readerreviews Exciting! Everyone that likes to read should sign up. Although, I hope they pick me […]

The President is funny…on purpose this time

I can count on one hand the times I’ve wanted to listen to the President. That’s not to say I don’t listen, I almost always do, but I usually don’t enjoy it.

Book #9

Book #8

Forever in Blue, The Fourth Summer of the Sisterhood by Anne Brashares. This book had a lot of low points for me, but a few high points too. I’m a big fan of this series. #3 was my favorite. If you haven’t read this one yet, I’m going to try not to give too much […]
