If I Can’t Have You
Gregg Olsen and Rebecca Morris
Summary:

New York Times bestselling authors Gregg Olsen and Rebecca Morris investigate one of the twenty-first century’s most puzzling disappearances and how it resulted in the murder of two children by their father. 
Every once in a great while a genuine murder mystery unfolds before the eyes of the American public. The tragic story of Susan Powell and her murdered boys, Charlie and Braden, is the only case that rivals the JonBenet Ramsey saga in the annals of true crime. When the pretty Utah mother went missing in December of 2009, the media was swept up in the story - with lenses and microphones trained on Susan’s husband, Josh. He said he had no idea what happened to his young wife, and that he and the boys had been camping in the middle of a snowstorm. 
Over the next three years, bombshell by bombshell, the story would reveal more shocking secrets. Josh’s father, Steve, who was sexually obsessed with Susan, would ultimately be convicted of unspeakable perversion. Josh’s brother, Michael, would commit suicide. And in the most stunning event of them all, Josh Powell would murder his two little boys and kill himself with a brutality beyond belief, leaving a family destroyed and a nation in shock. 

I should not have read this book. You should not read this book. These authors should not be making money off of a sensationalized retelling of a story as tragic as this one. This was so disgusting. The book (and the case itself, still) showed a horrifying misunderstanding of mental illness, and while Josh Powell clearly was guilty and can not be sympathized with, it also needs to be acknowledged that, had  his mental illness been treated, this whole thing could have been averted, rather than painting him as a crazy freak who was broken beyond repair from the time he was a child. 
I just am so offended by the fact that this book even exists and people are making money off of this story, I really can’t explain how gross it makes me feel, especially including pictures of the hatchet he used on the boys, which seemed pretty unnecessary. And the reviews on the back of the book were gross too: “As good as it gets.” “Fascinating!” It just grosses me out.
AND ALSO, the story itself really freaked me out, because I knew it was close to home. The house he killed the kids in was in the town I was living in at the time, but I didn’t realize that people in that family were probably my customers at some point? They frequently talked about the stuff that went down at the Fred Meyer right by my store and like… that’s very upsetting…

Deep Thoughts From a Hollywood Blonde
Jennie Garth 
Summary:

From her sudden rise to fame as a golden-haired teen beauty to recently redefining herself as a single working mother to three growing girls, Jennie Garth has defied the odds and thrived in a town that can be more than a little tough on its blondes.
Since Jennie landed in Hollywood at just sixteen, she has built an enduring career as a television and film actress, producer, and director, beginning with her iconic turn as Kelly Taylor on Aaron Spelling’s smash hit Beverly Hills 90210, a show that ran for a decade and that cemented Jennie’s place in American pop culture. 
Recently, Jennie found herself facing her forties from a place she never expected to be: newly single, in demand again as an actress after years spent focusing on her family, and all over the tabloids. So she decided to do something that surprised many, including herself: to write about it - to tell her own story, in her own words. 
And now, in this intimate memoir, she explores the highs and the lows of her life, both in front of the camera and behind closed doors, revealing the real Jennie Garth - smart, funny, and stronger than she ever realized. 

I read a lot of autobiographies, so when I say that this is one of the better ones I’ve read, that’s a legit compliment. Especially considering I’ve never seen an episode of Beverly Hills 90210, which was a huge focus of this book (and Garth’s life…)
I thought this was so sweet and real and beautiful, and I found myself randomly telling my boyfriend tidbits about Jennie Garth’s life even though he probably has no idea who she even is and definitely doesn’t care?? I just was so interested and really really loved it.

Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist
Rachel Cohn and David Levithan
Summary:

Nick’s just seen the girl who dumped him walk in…with a new guy. What else can he do but ask the strange girl next to him to be his new girlfriend for the next five minutes?
Norah would do anything to avoid conversation with the not-friend girl who dumped Nick…and to get over the Evil Ex whom Norah never really totally dumped. What else can she do but answer Nick’s question by making out with him?
With one electric, unexpected kiss, the five-minute couple of Nick and Norah set off on an uncharted adventure called the “first date” that will turn into an infinite night of falling in and out (and in and out, and maybe in and maybe out) of love. Theirs is a first date of music, laughter, heartache, confusion, passion, taxi driver wisdom, and a jacket named Salvatore. And of course a killer soundtrack. 
As Nick and Norah wander through the middle-of-the-night mystic maze of Manhattan, they share the kind of night you want to never end, where every minute counts and every moment flickers between love and disaster. 

This book was terrible. I’m not gonna sugarcoat it. It was TERRIBLE. From the first chapter, I knew that I would hate it. It was so obnoxious and the characters were obnoxious and this does not seem like a situation that would ever happen, and if people like this exist in real life, I hope I never meet them.
More than that, though, this book had elements that, while I’m not part of the group being represented and my opinion definitely doesn’t count, made me really uncomfortable. There was one scene where one of Norah’s friends, who dressed as a woman and referred to herself as a woman, was repeatedly referred to as s/he, which bothered me every time I read it, which was like 40 per paragraph. Then there was the scene where Norah convinced herself, despite many concrete clues to the contrary, that Nick was gay because he smelled nice and used chapstick???? I don’t know, it was a very uncomfortable read for me.

Silverwing
Kenneth Oppel
Summary:

Shade is a young Silverwing bat, the runt of his colony, determined to prove himself on the long and dangerous winter migration to Hibernaculum, millions of wingbeats to the south. During a storm, he is swept out over the ocean - away from his family, his friends, and the only life he has ever known. Alone and frightened as winter fast approaches and temperatures plunge, Shade knows he must find a way to rejoin his colony in the south. 
And thus begins an extraordinary journey - from the pigeon stronghold in the city’s spires to the rat kingdom deep below the earth. Along the way, Shade encounters a remarkable cast of characters: Marina, a Brightwing bat with a strange metal band on her forearm; Zephyr, a mystical albino bat who can hear into both the past and the future; and Goth, a gigantic carnivorous vampire bat captured in his native jungle and brought to a mysterious human laboratory in the north. If only Shade could figure out which ones are friends, and which ones enemies….

Ok, so I checked these books out because of my intense craving for more from the author of the Matt Cruse books, which is why maybe I didn’t go into it looking at the books as fairly as I could have, but they just did not live up to the expectations I had from the other series! 
Don’t get me wrong, I adored this series, I thought it was so cute and great, but it just didn’t pull me in like Airborne did. I think it’s geared toward younger kids than the others were, but I still don’t really think it’s a good reason to have less life than any other book.

Four
Veronica Roth
Summary:

Two years before Beatrice Prior made her choice, the sixteen-year-old son of Abnegation&#8217;s faction leader did the same. Tobias&#8217;s transfer to Dauntless is a chance to begin again. Here, he will not be called the name his parents gave him. Here, he will not let fear turn him into a cowering child.
Newly christened &#8220;Four,&#8221; he discovers during initiation that he will succeed in Dauntless. Initiation is only the beginning, though; Four must claim his place in the Dauntless hierarchy. His decisions will affect future initiates as well as uncover secrets that could threaten his own future—and the future of the entire faction system.
Two years later, Four is poised to take action, but the course is still unclear. The first new initiate who jumps into the net might change all that. With her, the way to righting their world might become clear. With her, it might become possible to be Tobias once again.

Throughout the Divergent series, Four was kind of an annoying character to me (although in the movie I related so hard to him I ended up bawling in the theater, but that&#8217;s a totally different thing), he kind of seemed so lifeless and kind of boring, and I really only cared about Tris. So when I heard about these stories, I knew I wanted to read them (I&#8217;d honestly eat up anything about this series right now), but I didn&#8217;t know how I would feel about it once I did. 
I was really surprised at how much these stories brought Four&#8217;s character to life. It&#8217;s amazing how just these few short stories really transformed him from a scrawny kid into the strong silent Four we know in Divergent. Getting to &#8220;witness&#8221; the way things were with his dad of course made him a way more sympathetic character to me, but I really loved the whole thing, not just those parts. 
Also, I knew it would happen but still, seeing how much Four really really loved Tris broke my heart so much after finishing the whole series&#8230;. 
There were times when it was a little dry (you can only be so entertained re-reading the same story, especially when it&#8217;s been a while and you don&#8217;t really remember the other perspective) but it was still so great.

Guys love books too - a campaign

Hello bookish Tumblr community :)

I was thinking about something lately. I never see guys around here. And I’m wondering why that is… Are they shy? Do they not want people to know they read? Is reading considered strictly a female hobby? Cause, if that is so, it’s wrong! Books are for everyone, that’s the beauty of them.

So, we here at books-and-cookies​, magic-in-every-book and readaroundtherosie​ have decided to start a campaign to find the male readers on tumblr and get them out of their shells and get them involved!

If you’re a guy and you love to read, let us know! Make a text post, post a selfie, send us a message, submit something and let the world know that guys enjoy books and reading too! And, don’t forget to tag it, so everyone can see it: #guyslovebookstoo

And reblog away everyone, so we can find them and make them feel part of the community :)

spread the word :)

OKAY SO RULES:

  • This ends September 1st at midnight of whatever time zone you live in, I’ll be choosing a winner the next day
  • I’ve been thinking about it and you don’t have to be following me, I want to do a giveaway, not gain dozens of followers who didn’t even want to follow me in the first place. If you checked out my blog, though, that would be extremely nice of you!
  • I’m not sure how much money I will be able to spend, so let’s say one winner gets one book, there’s a possibility there will be more than one winner. I’ll keep you updated.
  • You need to reblog this post to enter. Likes count only if you reblogged it first.
  • You can have whatever edition (that the Book Depository has) and whichever book in a series you like.
  • If you prefer any other book than the ones listed above you can say so, but it’s the theme what’s fun. But this giveaway is for you, I won’t argue.
  • I’ll be using the Book Depository so 1) your country needs to be on the list of where they ship to (they ship almost everywhere, don’t worry), 2) you need to be comfortable giving me your address, I won’t do anything creepy with it (I wouldn’t even know what to do with it, I could send you a christmas card).
  • If you have any questions just come here

GOOD LUCK GUYS AND MAY THE ODDS BE EVER IN YOUR FAVOR!

Dirty Daddy
Bob Saget
Summary (from Amazon):

Millions of viewers know and love Bob Saget from his role as the sweetly neurotic father on the smash hit Full House, and as the charming wisecracking host ofAmerica&#8217;s Funniest Home Videos. And then there are the legions of fans who can&#8217;t get enough of his scatological, out-of-his-mind stand-up routines, comedy specials, and outrageously profane performances in such shows as HBO&#8217;sEntourageand the hit documentaryThe Aristocrats.
In his bold and wildly entertaining publishing debut, he continues to embrace his dark side and gives readers the book they have long been waiting for—hilarious and often dirty. Bob believes there&#8217;s a time and a place for filth. From his never-before-heard stories of what really went on behind the scenes of two of the most successful family shows of all times, with co-stars like John Stamos and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, to his tales of legendary friends and colleagues like Rodney Dangerfield, Richard Pryor, Don Rickles, and other show business legends, Saget opens up about some of his personal experiences with life and death, his career, and his reputation for sick humor—all with his highly original blend of silliness, vulgarity, humor and heart, and all framed by a man who loves being funny above all else.

Ok, so I&#8217;ve seen Bob Saget&#8217;s comedy show, I saw his roast, I know that he is not Danny Tanner. I am not offended by Bob Saget being vulgar. That being said, it was entirely too much in this book. It wasn&#8217;t really that I was offended by the things he was saying, it was more like secondhand embarrassment that this grown man was publishing a book with these things written in it?? 

I also had a problem with how he kept doing annoying things, like name-dropping excessively, but then he would acknowledge that he was doing it, which had the opposite effect from making it ok, it just made it even more annoying. 

Just really not the book for me&#8230;.
