Just Mercy

Just Mercy

By: Bryan Stevenson

So in all honesty I was just going to wait for the movie on this one. Because important subject and Michael B. Jordan but then Twitter had a Twitter-Tantrum only this time it was big time authors acting up and I decided to give Just Mercy- one of the books sort of involved, a read.

Holly Black has finished her tale and I have officially finished exactly 1 (1!) of the endlessly running book series I’m reading this year!

So I thought I’d wrap up my thoughts on this popular tale of the fae and confess that ever since I read the first book in my head Cardan has always been Tom Hiddleston’s Loki with a tail. Some things just burrow into your mind like songs and you can’t help yourself.

It’s Not You, It’s Me… or Maybe You

The Library of the Unwritten

The Library of the Unwritten

By: A.J. Hackwitch

I think it hurts a little more when a book that has all the makings of something you should love disappoints. If I did 5-Star Read predictions The Library of the Unwritten would have been on it.

It’s a magic library in hell for Pete’s sake!

And yet it wound up being only a 2- star it was okay read.

I finally finished the series!

And seeing as the show always calms me down and the holiday times coming I thought this would be a perfect time for my Top 5 Parks and Recreations episodes if you can slip away for 30 minutes of the busy days and take a breather!

Although there are so many cute moments throughout each show and character highlights that I had trouble narrowing it down to 5.
