For those of you who don’t know, I live in South Carolina which was just hit by an ice storm that took out over 100,000 people’s power. Ours was included in this and we have only just got power back. I tell you this so that you know that I haven’t just been neglecting the blog, not blogging was one of the hardest parts of the power outage…well that and that cold! And before it’s asked, no we could not go and stay at a hotel/motel as their power was out as well.
Let’s jump into the reason for this post, it’s the third Tuesday of the month which means it’s time for another round of Literary Junkies. Lets jump on in with the questions for this month:
What are you reading right now? Tell us about it:
Right now I’m currently reading several books that I was sent to review, the one I’m about to finish is ‘Til I Find You by Greta Bondieumaitre:
“No one knows how bumpy the road to love is more than Tisha Cole. After years of excruciatingly embarrassing dates, the 25-year-old receptionist is ready to hand in her dating license, but her cynical cousin, Drew, will not let her. She knows that finding Mr. Right has always been Tisha’s ultimate goal in life and short of joining the search herself, Drew plans on doing whatever it is her power to help Tisha find him. When they cross paths with two best friends and a very sexy entrepreneur, there’s a slight change in plans.
Drew who has always been adamant about keeping her single status begins to doubt her immunity to Tisha’s lovesickness.
Tisha has hit the jackpot with not one but two perfect dates! Where next will her quest for love take her when she decides to upgrade her relationship — with both men!
Two not-so-sweet cousins, three not-so-honest men. With the many potholes and crossroads along the way, will Tisha ever reach her destination?”
The review for this will be on the blog February 24th!
What books are on your bedside table at the moment:
Honestly I don’t have a bedside table, I do keep my cellphone on the headboard though as we use it as an alarm clock. Currently loaded on that is the ‘Til I Find You Book, Shakespeare’s Complete Works, Jane Eyre, and the Hunger Games Trilogy.
Amazon Released the 100 Books to Read in a Lifetime, what would you add:
I would add two books to that list, The Crucible by Arthur Miller and Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë. I feel that everyone should read these two books at some point in their lives. The Crucible was written during the McCarthy trials and Miller used the guise of the Salem Witch Trials as a metaphor for what was going on in Hollywood at the time. It is a play that focuses on two dark periods in our history. Jane Eyre is just a darn good book!
Are there any books being published in 2014 that you are anxiously awaiting?
Not really. I am however, looking forward to a movie based on a book. Mockingjay Part 1 comes out November 21st and this girl will be seeing it opening day!
Name the next 3 books in your To Be Read List:
The next three books on my To Be Read List are Soul Control, Fog City, and A Place at the Table. All three of which are being read for reviews for the blog!
