T5W – August 30, 2017

Favorite Bromance

**Bromance = platonic relationship between two characters who identify as male.

I love a book with a good bromance. Female friendships are great, and I am so glad that they are becoming more prominent in YA, but the male friendships have been seriously lacking for a very long time. Men in stories serve only as love interests and eye candy. They are there to compete with other males for the chance to be the alpha in the pack and get the girl. Either that, or we are presented with the obvious alpha, and the goofy friend who poses no threat to his masculinity. Here I’m gonna talk about the male friendships that have been too epic for words and too emotional to fully express.

So, let’s go talk about some of my top bros.

All the Crooked Saints ARC Giveaway!!

Hey, guess what? I’m giving away a book!

A week ago I wrote a post about a giveaway that I was hosting here in celebration of getting 300 followers on my blog. Again, I want to thank you all. But, for those of you who might not have seen that post and don’t know about the giveaway, here it is again!

The Book Cover Girls is hosting am hosting a giveaway for a chance to win a new, free, signed ARC of Maggie Stiefvater’s upcoming book, All the Crooked Saints. While at Book Con 2017, I acquired two copies of the novel. I am keeping one to read an am giving the other one away.

And yes, I know, there is controversy about this book. But, let’s also keep in mind that none of the people that were originally making their judgement had even read the book at the time. I haven’t read it either and if I find a problem with it then I will state that in my review, but I will go into this book without bias, as should we all. So, if you are as excited as I am to read this book, and live in the continental united states, please feel free to enter my giveaway!

Scrappy Little Nobody – A Funny Little Memoir

★★★★


29868610

The other day, while bored out of my mind at two in the morning, I scrolled through my Netflix hoping for something to watch. Having found nothing that caught my attention, I logged into my HBO account and watched The Accountant, starring Anna Kendrick and Ben Affleck.

I liked the movie. It was entertaining and it gave me something to do, other than stare at the ceiling and contemplate the meaning of life. (As one does at 2 AM).

That was a few weeks ago. As of right now, I have watched that movie four times.

Strange the Dreamer – The Best Book I’ve Read This Year

★★


28449207Has a book ever drained you? Used so much of your emotions that you had no clue how to feel once it ended? This book did that to me.

This book took me on a ride and did not let me go until the last word of the last page. And no, it didn’t let me down gently. It dropped me from a cliff face first into the cold hard ground of reality. It left me wanting more, needing more, and with a year before I could get it.

This book is by far one of the best books I’ve read in 2017. One of the best I have read in a long while, and it’s going to take something quite grand to top it.

The Queen – A Selection Novella

★★


23655854Surprisingly enough, I actually really enjoyed this. Queen Amberly was so sweet and kind and nurturing. I loved seeing a different selection and viewing this world and this process from a point of view other than America’s.

While it is agreed that King Clarkson is a total jerk, I don’t know how I feel about him in this particular story. I love prequels about villains because they always show us a softer side of the bad guy, without justifying them. This was the case with Marissa Meyer’s Fairest, the prequel to the Lunar Chronicles.
