In My Mailbox (2)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.

My mailbox is pretty puny this week after last week's book buying bonanza. My husband banned me from the bookstores for a week or two, and I didn't make it to the library. (I had to help with my cousin's baby shower.) Soooo... I had no choice but to dig around in my ever growing TBR boxes to find something to read. Which, really, isn't a bad idea since I'm up to 3 boxes now! I might have to use the boxes as coffee tables if I don't start emptying them out.

Now I'm reading The Abused Werewolf Rescue Group by Catherine Jinks. I didn't read the first book in this series, but it seems pretty good so far. I had a raffle  of the original ARC of this book that I got in November in my class. I was lucky enough to get another copy from NetGalley.

Oh, and I almost forgot. I won an ARC of Brigitta of the White Forest by Danika Dinsmore from a Goodreads contest. This will certainly be my next read. 

I finally finished Spoiled by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan. It was exactly like I predicted it would be... HILARIOUS! I didn't think I would like it, but I ended up loving it. I laughed at loud several times during the book. (It even had a nice plot.)


  1. I splurged a little at the used book store this weekend, but overall I have been doing really good at not spending money on books. I have started using the library & I just love the free book offers for Nook.....

  2. Thanks for dropping by! I haven't read it yet but Everlasting looks like a YA historical fantasy:

    And yay, Fairy Tale Fortnight! Sounds like it's gonna be a blast, I love fairy tales and their retellings :)

My 13 reasons why you should avoid Netflix's 13 Reasons Why

If you subscribe to Netflix, you should know about the book to film adaptation of Jay Asher's novel, Thirteen Reasons Why. I remember reading the book years ago on a recommendation, and fell in love with the story. It took me through so many emotions as I read Hannah's story. You can see my thoughts on the novel here, because this post isn't about the novel per se.

This post is about what bothered me about Netflix's attempt at capturing this story. So here goes, my 13 reasons why I shouldn't have watched "Thirteen Reasons Why" on Netflix.

1. The language. My goodness, the language. I understand that teenagers curse worse than sailors in many situations, but if you aren't bothered by the ridiculous use of the f bomb as both an adjective, verb, and general space filler-- there is a problem. I stopped counting in one episode its use because I reached 20 before the half way point. Twenty! I don't think they even bothered to come up with other words. …

This week's question: Do you have any furry friends?

These are my fur babies: 

This is what it often looks like while I'm busy working. As you can tell, productivity is high. 

This is Lilly waiting for her boys to come home. She'll spend the entire day just like this if she's not sleeping next to me in my office. 

This is Roscoe. AKA The Boss. He runs the show around here. And yes, he has a sweater AND a coat for cold weather. 

Review: The Search for Delicious

The Search for Delicious Natalie Babbitt
Product Details

Reading level: Young Adult
Paperback: 192 pages
Publisher: Square Fish (August 21, 2007)
ISBN-10: 9780312369828
Source: My personal book

Summary from Amazon: Gaylen, the King’s messenger, a skinny boy of twelve, is off to poll the kingdom, traveling from town to farmstead to town on his horse, Marrow. At first it is merely a question of disagreement at the royal castle over which food should stand for Delicious in the new dictionary. But soon it seems that the search for Delicious had better succeed if civil war is to be avoided.

Gaylen’s quest leads him to the woldweller, a wise, 900-year-old creature who lives alone at the precise center of the forest; to Canto, the minstrel who sings him an old song about a mermaid child and who gives him a peculiar good-luck charm; to the underground domain of the dwarfs; and finally to Ardis who might save the kingdom from havoc.

My Review: I love this book! It is such a fun, easy, and enjoyable r…
