What was your favorite book as a child?

little woman. I read it in fifth grade and was SO proud of myself for reading it for some reason.

I think it was because it was so big to me. I've always loved reading. :)

Happy Holidays!

No review this post, but the next one will. I'm almost done with this book. Finals have killed my reading time!

I just wanted to wish everyone a happy holiday break.
I know a lot of people are off or about to be.

Don't take this time of year for granted, spend it with the people you love and spread joy to the others around you.

I hope your celebrations are the best you've had yet and will be memorable!



Love,

Laura



Upcoming Reviews!

Here is a list of books that I have read and will be posting reviews for in the coming weeks. (Most likely coming in the coming up weekend!)

Castration Celebration
Meg Cabot Novels/Series
Manga/Manhwas
Going Bovine
Beating Heart



I'm really excited. I haven't mentioned much before, but I've been wanting to post some reviews up of mangas and manhwas.

I'm trying to not only reach a broader group but hopefully broaden your reading material too. Don't think about all the stuff you've heard about manga! A lot of it is actually really good. The trick is finding something appealing to the eye and mind.

Anyways, there is a lot coming in December so be on the look out! I hope everyone has a great holiday break!

Review: Snowed In by Rachel Hawthorne

0


I don't know if anyone else does this, but when it's a certain time of year, I LOVE to read books in the same season, etc. It's the same with music. And Winter has to be my favorite season. It's beautiful and I love the cold! So anyways, during my search for a winter themed book, I came across Snowed In by Rachel Hawthorne.

Snowed In is a sweet,albeit predictable book. Our lead girl Ashleigh and her mother move away from Texas to a tiny island in the Great Lakes after her father decides to remarry.
While her mother is trying to set up their B&B, Ashleigh is just trying to adjust to her new life-making friends and getting a date. And just who is that strangely attractive lumberjack boy???
This book was pretty fun actually. It's a little cheesy romantic, but it totally fits. First off, her new "best friend" seems a little psycho. She was super annoying, someone you'd totally want to slap in the face. All you ever hear her say is MY BOYFRIEND.
At first, I thought she'd end up with one guy, but just as soon as I began to think so, his reactions told me not so much.
Another thing I liked about this book was the protagonist's realism. Ashleigh's outlook on dating reflected her anger and hurt she felt towards her dad. I could feel her characters frustration and hurt. Hawthorne's book might be your typical teen's romantic comedy, BUT I think that's part of what people really like about her writing and books. People like having a commonality. It's relative to our own lives. And yes, sometimes these type of books can be a little far fetched, but we still can find a connection. And that's what makes us enjoy reading really. Feeling the connection to the characters and stories.
