Anonymous asked: this will probably be weird but do you cover your books with plastic covers? bc im having a dilemma if i should cover my books or not lol

bookgeekconfessions:

I do not and honestly I am the worst person to ask these kind of questions. 

I know I am in the minority, but I like for my books to look read. I like my books to tell the stories of my adventures. I feel like every crease, doggy eared page, etc tells the story of my journey.

My most beloved books are the most beat up and warn and you can always tell which scenes I liked most, because they’re probably the most messed up.

I’m ok with this.  

AGREE! I’m not overly protective of my books for the same reason. I also love to loan mine out (if I don’t get them back, I buy them again). 

Similarly, I love, love, love used books - Goodwill, Savers, Half Price Books, and garage sales are my FAVORITE places to buy books!

striderssweetloot asked: Room by Emma Donoghue. A novel about a woman who was kidnapped while in college. It is told from the POV of her five year old son, Jack. Room is all he knows to be the world, and he is okay with that. His mother formulates a plan for their escape, eventually leading to a surprising turn of events that leave Jack in a scary new world. 4.5/5. Definitely worth the read.

Aw thank you! 
Also, if this ask isn’t enough for you, please feel free to read my review of Room here! (: 

If anyone else would like to send me reviews, please feel free to submit or send an ask about any book you have a lot (or even a little!!) to say about! (:

Carrie
Stephen King
Summary:

[barcode] classmates, but she has a gift. She can move things with her mind. Doors lock. Candles fall. This is her power and her problem. Then, an act of kindness, as spontaneous as the vicious taunts of her classmates, offers Carrie a chance to be normal…until an unexpected cruelty turns her gift into a weapon of horror and destruction that no one will ever forget. 

I feel like I could do the same review for every single Stephen King book. I adored the way he set it up, the characters were beautiful, the story was exciting, etc. etc. He’s perfect, that’s it. 
5/5

OK I’ve had an idea

thebookslist:

I don’t know if this will work?? But I’ve been really really REALLY REALLY busy and haven’t had any time to read or pay any attention to this blog. I’ve got one book to review, but in the meantime I have an idea???

I would really really love it if you guys submitted book reviews to me.

Like, it could be your favorite book, or a book you just read, or a book you hate, and it could be long or short and I don’t care how it’s formatted, and it’ll be like a little promotion for your blog too so we both win. 

I just honestly would love to see your guys’ thoughts on books and I think it would be cute. 

This is still a thing I’d really really like for you guys to do!!!! Please feel free (: 

Even if it’s like a post you made on your blog already, submit a copy to me and I’ll post it (:


I have a very cute boyfriend to spend all of my time with, so I haven’t been around much, but I have been reading, no worries! I finished Carrie, and started Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter and Allegiant (which I actually have to get back to right now!!!)


thebookslist:

I have been mysteriously absent lately, but look! It’s finally happening! 

I’ve reached a follower milestone, and to celebrate I’m doing a giveaway!

The important things you’ll want to note:

  • You do NOT have to be following me. 
  • The books shown above are available, but not your only choices.
  • The books shown above are primarily books that I want, and buying them for me will get you an extra entry. 
  • That last one was a joke. 
  • I will be using the Book Depository, so you get to choose your book!
  • On that note, though, I’d prefer for it to be under $20
  • Doctor Sleep is not under $20 but if you want that one not only will I get it for you I’ll need you to tell me how awesome it is. 
  • You must be willing to give me your address, or a PO box or something. 
  • One reblog and one like will count. 
  • This will end on October 24th

Please feel free to ask any questions you may have, because you know I’ve forgotten something. 

and it’s over!!! (: 


myenglishmajorlife:

I need some more blogs to follow so if you post things about books (any kinds, but especially YA), being an English major/college student, writing, etc, etc, like or reblog this so I can check out your blog!


Scar Tissue
Anthony Kiedis
Summary:

In 1983, four self-described “knuckleheads” burst out of the mosh-pitted mosaic of the neo-punk rock scene in L.A. with their own unique brand of cosmic hard-core mayhem funk.Over twenty years later, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, against all odds, have become one of the most successful bands in the world. Though the band has gone through many incarnations, Anthony Kiedis, the group’s lyricist and dynamic lead singer, has been there for the whole roller-coaster ride. 
Scar Tissue is Kiedis’s searingly honest memoir of a life spent in the fast lane. Raised in the Midwest, Anthony migrated to Los Angeles at the age of eleven to live with his dad, Blackie, who was the hippest purveyor of pills, pot, and cocaine to the Hollywood elite. Before he turned thirteen, he was sharing Blackie’s girls and drugs during nightly bacchanals that included such prominent Sunset Strip luminaries at Keith Moon, Jimmy Page, and Alice Cooper. After a brief child acting career, Anthony dropped out of UCLA and plunged headfirst into the demimonde of the LA underground music scene. Living on the couch circuit, stealing food, sneaking into concerts, shooting speed, coke, and heroin, Kiedis haunted after hours clubs every night searching desperately for the next deep kick. 
He finally found it in his music. As Anthony collaborated with three high school buddies, for the first time his life had a meaning: to liberate the libido and propagate the Chili Peppers’ party-hearty line of the original Uplift Mofo Party Band. Crisscrossing the country, the Chili Peppers were musical innovators and influenced a whole generation of musicians. Scar Tissue is peppered with great stories of the celebrated artists who have crossed paths with Anthony. 
But there’s a price to pay for both success and excess, and in Scar Tissue Kiedis writes candidly of the overdose death of his soul mate and bandmate, Hillel Slovak, and his own ongoing struggle with an addiction to drugs that left him a homeless multimillionaire who shot speedballs with Mexican gangbangers beneath highway overpasses in the barrio of Los Angeles. Hitting rock bottom, Anthony embarked on a spiritual journey that took him to India, Borneo, Thailand, and New Zealand, only to find that the key to enlightenment was buried in his own backyard. 
Whether it’s recollecting the influence of the beautiful, strong women who have been his muses, or retracing his journey that’s included appearances as diverse as a performance before half a million people at Woodstock or an audience of one at the humble compound of the exiled Dalai Lama, Scar Tissue is compelling reading. It’s a story of dedication and debauchery, of intrigue and integrity, of recklessness and redemption - a story that could only have come out of Hollywood. 

Ok, first can we just talk about how that’s the cutest book name ever???? I’m so in love with it. 
But yeah, this is a really great book. Kiedis is ridiculously honest and real and it just really spoke to me. I loved reading about the Chili Peppers’ beginnings, even though a lot of it was really sad. And he’s just..he’s such a great guy. Like loving and excitable and it’s just really impressive how incredible he was able to come across through an autobiography. 
5/5
