5 Books for an Orange Mood | Summer Reading Challenge

I've been reading a lot of books lately from my TBR pile for my summer reading bingo card. Turns out, five of the books I've finished in the last two weeks have orange covers which happens to be my favorite color. Strange, but I like it.

Here is your challenge this month... Read 5 books with your favorite color on the cover. It doesn't matter what it is. Share your list with me in the comments. I'd love to know what books you picked. Here are mine:

To Kill A Mockingbird: Which I keep saying Mockingjay like I was in the Hunger Games or something. I never read this book in highschool. I was homeschooled and to tell you the truth, whatever I wanted to read was acceptable as long as I was reading. So mostly I read about american indians, but that has nothing to do with this awesome book. Loved it! Gave it four stars.

Orange is the New Black: I haven't watched the show. I'm wondering now how close it really is to the awesome, crazy insight into a women's prison. I didn't think I would like this book because I'm not a huge fan of memoirs, but this was a really fun read. Totally gave this book five stars.

* * * * *

Tiny Beautiful Things: I loved Cheryl Strayed's book Wild. Not a big fan of this one. Turns out it is a collection of letters people have written the author about their issues and how Strayed answered them. There are a few short stories mixed in, but there really wasn't much to hold on to as far as stories go. I wasn't impressed, but its not my cup of tea. This one got three stars and a DNF from me.

The Perfect Weapon: I'm a big fan of everything Star Wars, but wasn't a big fan of this book. Good thing it was a short story. About 60 pages. Delilah S. Dawson wrote another Star War book that I loved, Phasma, so I thought this would e a great transition to another story. I just couldn't get into it. Maybe I wasn't in the mood. Who knows. I did finish it, however. Gave it three stars.

* * *

Everless: There are some weird blood drinking people that I can only describe as weird vampire like people who can live forever as long as they steal the life from other people. Loved it! I guess I'm a vampire girl through and through. Couldn't put this book down and finished it in one day despite its 362 pages. Don't go to Everless people, its a bad idea... but oh so good. This on got five stars from me.

Ok, there is your summer reading challenge. Now get out there and read!

The Girl With All the Gifts | Movie Review

Release Date: January 26th, 2017 Rating: 6.7/10 IMDB Cast: Sennia Nanua, Gemma Arterton
Summary from IMDB: A scientist and a teacher living in a dystopian future embark on a journey of survival with a special young girl named Melanie.
IMDB Trailer
Review: If this isn't fantastic or what? I loved the book and I'm always a little leary about watching the movie after I loved the book, but this one was worth the watch. 
I loved the dystopian zombie world. A bacteria has taken over the minds of those who are infected and they crave human flesh, but the children born with this disease arm mostly alive. They can learn and love, just like any normal child. The only difference is, they still crave flesh.
There are so many twists and turns in the story. It kept me on the edge of my seat. It wasn't really scary like a lot of zombie movies so if you are not a big fan of horror I think you would be safe with the semi freaky movie.
5 out of 5…

What I'm Reading This Week | #WeeklyMenu Week #255

Its Monday again. Always Monday. We go through the week and them come back to Monday. They day that I have to myself, or wished I had to myself. Really I share it with everyone. Never time to myself. Never a quiet moment away from people. It makes it hard, since I need my quiet time to rewind and reset for the week. I don't get that. All I get is angry. How am I supposed to feel better if I can't have my quiet time?

On the other side of things, I finally sat down to write. It was a nice day. The sun was shining, there was a cool breeze and an open pick-nick table on my lunch break. Perfect weather for a mid day writing session. Got a lot done on my new manuscript. I'm hoping this one will land me an agent, but we shall see.

Guess what I' reading this week? Ok, you probably already know because of the picture. Exit West. It serves two purposes for me. Its on my shortest books I wanted to read list and also takes care of one of my bingo spots, a book about today's is…
