Being Your Best Basic Self

Next Level Basic

Next Level Basic

By: Stassi Schroeder

So while I was listening to this (and I definitely recommend the audio) I was thinking of my own basic bitch list. As the whole point of the book, as much as there is one, is to own that kind of thing.

If you don’t like subtitled films that everyone tells you is award worthy and all the smart people are seeing and you’d chose a Godzilla film any day of the week- own that monster!

The Princess Diarist

The Princess Diarist

By: Carrie Fisher

Grade: B

“I thought you might supply 

some tenderness I lacked but

out of all the things I offered

you took my breath away-

and now I want it back.”

The Princess Diarist is kind of a weird read.

Top Ten Tuesday: Dear Book Genie

TTT

Dear Book Genie:

 I have been reading the Top Ten Tuesdays from Broke and Bookish ever since I found them at work but have never managed to remember to do one. Which is insane right? It’s always the same day of the week! However this Tuesday I have some wishes for the Book Genie. I keep it under ten though…

 1. You know how Stephanie Meyer redid Twilight but switched everyone’s gender & that was after E.L. James decided we needed Christian’s POV for another 50 Shades of Grey book? …

      Let’s just nip this trend in the bud right here right now Genie!

 2. Celebrity Books: Anyone getting eight millions dollars for a book is just insane unless you bring back Shakespeare or something and I say that as someone whose counting down the days until Anna Kendrick’s book appears.

      Celebrity Book Suggestions Genie: Taylor Swift Cookbook, Karlie Kloss Lifestyle Book, Amy, Tina & Mindy teaming up to write a children’s book? 

      Yep, I’d buy them all.

3. Why does everything have to be a series now Genie? Maybe just take all the scheduled series and cut them in half and make them stand alone books? That would be awesome Book Genie!

 And yes Genie probably the most obvious book wish of all…

 4. Winds of Winter- The season six show spoilers have me worried for the first time about where the book may be headed! I’m hanging on by a thread here with this series so anytime you’re ready Genie/Mr. Martin… I’ll even take a release date for the time being.
