It's been a few weeks and no update. sorry, but writing has taking over.
I have been writing/typing as fast as my hands would let me, to write a novel in one month for NaNoWriMo, for people who don't know what that is. Its this crazy thing were a whole lot of writer sit down (get together) and write 50,000 words in 30 day in November. This is my first year doing it, so i really wanted all my time to work on writing. I haven't read much, but a book review will be up in the next few days.
I hit 50,000 words on Monday, so i did in fact did win NaNoWriMo, but i still have a few more chapters to write for my novel. I am hoping to edited it and maybe self publish or something.
I am not sure what i will be reviewing, but i have a few of books for Netgalley and i have a few free eBooks that are holiday themed that would be fun to read. Maybe a holiday themed review week or month because i also have one or two favorite holiday books i always read.
If you what to know more about NaNoWriMo, check out the website here: NaNoWriMo
They also have a summer writing program called Camp NaNoWriMo, that i did this year. Its not as hardcore as the November craziness, but it's still really fun to hang with other writers and but in some hard work. Check it out here : Camp NaNoWriMo
A friend and i maybe starting a YouTube channel for book reviews and things, right now it is in the early stages, so i will let you know more, when i know more.
A movie review will be coming as well. i am going to see Catching Fire here soon, so look for that.
If you want to know more about my NaNoWriMo novel or anything else, comment and i will make a whole blog about NaNoWriMo.
I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving and Black Friday Shopping (if you go, i will be at home in bed, after a day of cooking and cleaning. Also a little drinking and TV with my step-dad). I will be doing my shopping on Sunday with my mom and sister. we like shopping but we are over Black Friday after years of doing it every year.
Keep Reading and Buy Lots of books for the holidays.

I was luck to review this book for NetGalley. I love books about Twins, so this book was right up my alley. I wasn't like any books i have read before:
The Switch by Dawn Pendleton and Andrea Heltsley is about Twins, Faith and Honor. Honor talk’s Faith into switching places with her on her anniversary with her boyfriend Cam. Faith who has a crush on Cam. During the anniversary kiss, sparks fly and the drama unfold. Add in Cam’s best friend, bullies and other teenage drama, you have one fun young adult read.
I liked the overall storyline and it was well written. I like that it was written from both Faith and Honors point of view, but I did like Faiths point of view better than Honors, only because she felt more relatable then Honor did. The only thing I didn’t like about the book was the timeline, everything happens so fast, in a one or two, which I find too fast.
I am giving this book three stars, it was a fun, easy, sweet, feel good book.

Thanks to NetGalley and Random House for letting me review this book for them. I loved the cover and it sounded like a great book.
This is my first book I have read by Elise Sax (Love Game) and I have to say that I didn't feel like I missed anything with this being the third book in this series, but I was missing out on Elise Sax. Her writing was amazing and spot on.
This book was just great, I loved everything about the crazy wonder world of matchmaking. This book had me Laughing out Loud more times than I can count. It had more comedy and suspense than romances but I found myself not minding it that much. It could have had more romances but that didn’t take away from the overall story. Elise did a great job with the characters, they are very well developed and kept me wanting to know more about them.
I will be reading the other two books as well as any other books by Elise Sax. I am giving this book 4 stars, and will be reading this book again.

I am reviewing this book for NetGalley for my honest review. Starlet's Web, has been on the GoodReads TBR list for a few months. i loved the description and really hoped to would be as good as it sounded.
Starlet’s Web by Carla J. Hanna was almost like a never ending story that I didn’t want to read. I found that I could connect to the characters, they were very flat and they seem very shallow even for portraying Hollywood type people. It took myself the whole book to find out what the plot was about and it wasn’t believable. It was very well written and an easy read but other than that it’s not very good. I am giving it 2 stars because it was very well written and I can that some people will love it.
