Help us give our Feature Interview Questions a fresh look! What questions do you think we should ask our weekly features?

I'm not very good with questions since the current questions are pretty standard and practical, let's go with some fun ones...

  • Who is your favorite literary character?
  • If you could pick any 2 characters to team up  and have adventures which would you choose?
  • What is your favorite movie or television show that is based on a book?
  • Do you have any blogging pet peeves? 
  • What is the first thing you do before you write a book review?
SO those are the questions! feel free to answer them below! I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Cults Are Scary | The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly by Stephanie Oakes

View on Goodreads


"A handless teen escapes from a cult, only to find herself in juvenile detention and suspected of knowing who murdered her cult leader” 


This is a sad story, not in the way that leaves you feeling depressed, but because it is the story of many (bad) things happening to a girl. With that said, I really enjoyed reading this book. It is beautifully written and the characters seem genuine. 

In the middle of the book I wanted to talk to someone about it but no one I know has read it (yet!). I wanted to talk about it because I wanted to share the story and my thoughts with someone. I think this would be a great book for a buddy read or a book club. 

Personal side note: Although the story was sad, I didn’t cry which seems a bit strange. I am a huge cry baby. 

3 Things I learned:

  1. In juvie velcro shoes = dangerous (or  you don’t have hands).
  2. Some people really want to live all by themselves in the woods.
  3. Cults don’t like it when you try to leave. 

Memorable Quote(s):

“I listen to the story and I don’t do any remembering for a long time afterward”
-pg. 136 (hardcover)

^ I almost cried at this part (I just love the power of books).

“Just a feeling like something in me is broken, something that in everyone around me is whole”
-pg. 192 (hardcover)

#fridayreads + First Lines Friday +FF

It's Friday! That means it's time to share what we are reading and answer some blog hop questions! 

I am currently reading I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson here are the first two lines of the book. 

Interesting right? I think so. I'm not too far into it but it was highly recommended and I'm  enjoying it so far. 
Now it is time for some blog hop fun! This week's question is:
Do you read more than 1 book at a time, and if so, how, like a certain amount of pages per book before moving on to the next one in the queue? - Suggested by Words I Write Crazy. 

Yes, I do. Sometimes I just put a book down for a while and then pick something else up. I read based on my mood so it isn't a conscious decision to read multiple  books but it does happen. If I'm not in the mood for the book I'm reading I will read something else. Then I will pick up where I left off. For example I'm reading The Look of Love (still it's been like 2 weeks) but I put it down to read I'll Give You the Sun. 

Ok so tell me what are you reading this weekend? Do you read multiple books at a time? 

Also, if you are here from the Feature and Follow hop here is some information about me!

Currently Reading

I haven't finished a book since January, I didn't post at all last week. Now I am sick at home and I am hoping to catch up on some reading.

I am still reading The Look of Love but I have decided to take a break and read I'll Give You the Sun. I also picked up All the Bright Places from the library and I hope to finish all of these this weekend so I can know what is in them, and I can share my thoughts.

What have you been reading? Have you read any of these?
