    Probably the organ removal scene! Sounds awesome:)

  3. Thanks so much for your book giveaway. Unwind sounds like the perfect book for my daughter that absolutely loves dystopian novels. :) (Course mom here loves them too....wink). Love summer and reading on my front porch and "escaping" with a good book. :) Thanks again.

  4. Ooops, I didn't read the "fine print" before commenting. :) I'm going to guess organ removal. :)

  5. After reading your review...I HAVE to read this book. Adding to my TBR list right now. I am guessing from review that "the scene" is about organ removal!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  6. I'm guessing something really gory and bloody? Thanks for the giveaway!

  12. Ohhhh, this book sounds dark, creepy and great. I think "the scene" is a scene where they cut a child up in pieces.

  13. Someone getting chased by the police?

  14. Wow, I read your review and I SO want to read this sounds right up my alley. I'm going to guess that 'the scene' is one of the more disturbing parts in the book...having to do with blood and gore.
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  15. A pivotal moment for the main character that determines which direction life will move in the future? Like my rambling?

  16. Is it of someone being unwound? *shivers*

  17. Probably the organ removal scene.

  18. death?? or a very bloody scene??
    thanks for making this international!

  19. Ooh I know! But that doesn't help since I've read the book lol. It's the unwinding scene. Love this book!

  20. I have no idea!! Something that the main character isn't supposed to see....

    Thanks for the giveaway! This book sounds awesome!

  21. The scene...
    maybe a VERY terrifying or disturbing one. I'm not sure! But I do heard a lot from this book. Gotta read it, hopefully I'd win!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  22. I can't imagine (possibly removing a kids organs), all I know is I have to read this book so win it or buy it, I will have a copy.

  23. Uhm... someone narrowly escaping being unwound? I have no clue, but your enthusiasm for the book is completely contagious, because I definitely want to read it now.
    Tracy Awalt Juliano.

  24. I'm guessing that "the scene" has to do with the "unwinding" process

  25. I have no idea, maybe the process of 'unwinding'?

  26. I have no clue since I havent read the book but from the other comments it sounds gross!

  27. Oh, probably something nasty...everyone else is saying organ removal, so I'll go with that. Nasty. =P Thanks for the giveaway!

  28. It sounds really scary, whatever "the scene" is! But I love to be spooked out! :D

  29. Ummm I hope it's a love scene but I'm guessing not LOL

  30. I know what happens in the "scene" so I won't spoil it for anyone. Thanks for the giveaway! -Rachel

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 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…
