Bookmarks for book lovers!

Did you know that I’m an artist? No? Well I am, and this year I started my own business. I’m super excited to be finally doing something I love. Creating art and design for those who love it and can’t do it themselves. I offer graphic design services as well as fine art and illustration. I have a website over at www.twoeasels.com if you want to find out more. But for my awesome book blogger friends I decided to create these cute bookmarks. Because you can never have enough, right? They are available for sale on my Etsy shop http://twoeasels.etsy.com I’ll be working on more pretty soon. I’m also working really long hours and have barely had any time to blog on this blog. But pretty soon I’ll catch up and post some new book reviews. I usually just listen […]

REVIEW: The Silent Wife

REVIEW: The Silent Wife

I had some big expectations for this book, mostly because I heard that it was similar to Gone Girl, which I liked a lot, but sadly it was really disappointing. Right from the start I didn’t like it, I just couldn’t connect with the characters, they weren’t developed well and didn’t seen real to me. I thought I was going to like it at some point, but that quickly died down. This is not a thriller, there is no suspense at all, we are basically told the ending in the first few lines of the book so that really took the thrill out of it for me. The rest I just listened to just in case it would get better. The main characters, Jodi and Todd take turns telling their story, and how their relationship took a turn for the […]

The Goldfinch

The Goldfinch

The Goldfinch is only the third book by Donna Tartt, it was published in late 2013, winning many awards and quickly climbing to the top 10 favorite books of that year. This is an incredible story about adolescence and grief.  How one teenage boy was struck with a tragic event that ended his mothers life and how the rest of his life was affected by it. Donna Tartt is a very talented writer, her stories make you feel like you are there, with the characters, experiencing everything they are. The story is about Theo Decker, a 13 year old boy whose mother dies tragically in a explosion at an art museum. He walks away unharmed, but now possesses a valuable painting, which he guards throughout his adolescence and into adulthood. Theo may seem like he got the better end of the deal, […]

Ten Book Related Problems I Have

  I am joining  The Broke and the Bookish  for this weeks Top Ten Tuesday. Go there and link up your post of top ten book related problems you have. I’m looking foreward to seeing what other people have problems with.   Ten Book Related Problems I Have: 1. I spend A LOT of money on books, 99% of the time it’s at a used bookstore so I’m not broke yet. Time to go buy more books.  I just can’t seem to stop buying them, even thought I have over 500 books and most of them I haven’t read yet, I keep buying more. Someone please commit me to a rehab. 2. I’ve had this blog for about 4 years and only 30 reads so far. But I still do it. Why? Because I love books and love to write about […]

I still hate 50 Shades of Grey

I still hate 50 Shades of Grey

So this may be a little sensitive to people who LOVE 50 shades of grey. If you love the book don’t read this post. I will piss you off.   I read the first book, hated it, had to force myself to finish it because I kept hoping it would get better, because why else would it be popular, but guess what? It never did get better. And I still hate it, and then, just when I thought I had escaped it forever, I found out there was a movie coming out. Great, now I have to listen to people talk about it all over again. Starting about late thursday my Facebook exploded with every girl posting “Omg! I’m going to see 50 Shades I can’t wait!!!!”. Ugh, I wanted to unfired so many people. After everyone saw the movie […]

Currently Reading

  Since I don’t have any books to review right now, unless I go back in time and review some really old ones, I thought I would share what I’m currently reading/listening to. I don’t run as much as I do in the summer because it’s icy and dark out, so that’s why I don’t listen to as many audio books anymore. But I’ll be back on track once it warms up a bit. So here is what I’ve been reading lately, and since I’m crazy and decided to read 4 books at once I won’t have any reviews for you anytime soon.   Devil In the White City To be honest the only reason I ever wanted to read this book is because everyone in my high school has read it for class, except my class. So I wanted […]

A year in review 2014

Posted 31 December, 2014 by Veronica in posts, Status Update / 0 Comments

39 BOOKS BABY!! I do feel a bit like I cheated, I did listen to most of these on audio, but in me defense I have a baby, and yes I do have other hobbies besides reading, I work full time as well. I don’t have a lot of time to devote to just reading. I need to multitask. And running came to my rescue. I started training for a 5k then a 10k and now I run all the time, so listening to audio books is really nice, music gets old after a while, I would have to keep buying new songs and I’m just not that into music. But books on the other hand make me want to run more.   So with that in mind, I read/listened to 39 books. That’s not as much as I used […]

REVIEW: Across the Universe by Beth Revis

REVIEW: Across the Universe by Beth Revis

CRYOGENICALLY FROZEN FOR CENTURIES Take a trip across the universe with residents of Godspeed, a space ship that has been traveling to another planet for centuries. I didn’t know what to expect from this book, I haven’t really heard anything about it before I read it. I had the third book at home, and I bought it because it was on sale, yea, I do that. Then I read the back of it and realized that it’s the third in a series, so I ordered the first one and started reading. Well I listened to it while running. Either way it starts off with Amy and her parents getting ready to be cryogenically frozen, so that she can wake up in 300 years on a different planet, where her parents are going to help build a new life for people of earth (Because […]

REVIEW: IT by Stephen King

REVIEW: IT by Stephen King

I don’t even know where to start with this book, I was expecting a lot, I thought it was going to be the greatest book I have ever read, but that didn’t happen. At first I was totally lost, I didn’t know who was who, there were so many characters and each of them was telling his or her own story that I couldn’t figure it out. Then once I understood what was happening, what the plot was and who the characters were, I liked it a lot. I wanted to finish it quickly, but that all went downhill when my audio book ran out from the library and I actually had to read the book. And back to square one. Confusion. The story went from bad to good to bad and then to shocking gross and disturbing. Then back […]

REVIEW: Spells and Sleeping Bags by Sarah Mlynowski

REVIEW: Spells and Sleeping Bags by Sarah Mlynowski

Like all the other books in this series, this is for young adults, I should say around 13-16 years old. But I wanted to step back in time and enjoy something that I would have loved when I was younger. This is the third book in the series so I won’t go into too much detail, I loved this book. The first one was obviously good the second one was ok, but this one was my favorite. When I was young I always wanted to go to camp, but I couldn’t since I had just moved to America from Poland and didn’t really speak English for a little while and my parents sure didn’t so I couldn’t go to camp. I watched movies about camp and fantasied about being there. But no, never happened. And then this book came along […]
