The tale of the Weekend Warriors a Review!
Weekend Warriors - Fern Michaels

Good hello everyone and how are you doing today?! I hope all is well with you all! I'm doing pretty awesome myself. I'm enjoying being back and sharing book stuff with you all! Today is going to be another review and this time I'll be reviewing "Weekend Warriors" by Fern Michaels. I have a lot to write about so Allons-y!

 

This is book one of the Sisterhood series. I believe there are 28 books so far, but I'm not to sure. I got into this book because my Step Grandmother had recommend that I read this! So, here I am finally sharing what I thought about it!

 

This first book is about how the Sisterhood was formed, it started when the main characters Nikki lost her best friend Barbara in a hit and run. She and Barbara's mother Myra witnessed it! Unfortunately they couldn't do anything about it, because the person who killed Barbara had diplomatic immunity. Then one day after witnessing something crazy. Myra and Nikki come up with an idea of bringing together a group of women who was failed by the Justice System, to go and find the people responsible for the wrong doings of these women and get them back! This one focuses on one member of the group, who was raped by three men, and it is up to the group to come up with a way to avenge her and she gets to decide how it will happened.

 

This story was so good, right away it grabbed my interested and held me til the end! I was surprised at how quickly everything was done. It's a fast pace read. I like all the female characters and Myra's Boyfriend Charles. At first I was a little hesitant with one of the characters named Yoko Akia, but she came out fine, then there are the other women in the group: Kathryn Lucas, Alexis Thorne, Isabella Flanders, and Julia Webster. They make up the sisterhood of course along with Nikki and Myra. Charles is the honorary member. Then I can't forget to add Nikki's Ex Boyfriend Jack who is a bit of a douche and I don't like him! 

 

I really did enjoy reading this one and I will slowly continue making my way to reading the other books as soon as possible! This one made me laugh quite a bit and of course getting annoyed at certain spots. I don't want to give to much away, so I'm gonna stop while I'm ahead.

 

 If you're into thrillers, suspense, and women power! Then, this is a book for you!  I will be back on Tuesday with a new review, yes, I know another review, but I'm making up for lost times. Also, Tuesdays and Thursdays will be the days I will be posting on here, so make sure to stick around to see what I have! Until then have a fantastic rest of the week and weekend and I'll be back on Tuesday!

 

POPCORN!!!

Geekerella Review
Geekerella - Ashley Poston

Once upon a time there lived a girl name... Me! LOL! Hey everyone and how's it going? I hope you all are doing pretty awesome! Because that is how I feel right now! So, like I've mentioned in my last post another review is here and I am gonna be sharing the story of "Geekerella" by Ashley Poston. I'm really excited to get tell you what I thought, so let's dive in!

 

The story is a Cinderella retelling, but this time it's dealing with GEEKDOM!!! Which I'm a proud member of! So, I am not in the right state of mind to come up with what the book is about. I am gonna use the book's blurb and call it done, because I'm tried and my mind went what the hell are you trying to do here lol! Here it is and it's borrowed from the goodreads pg.

 

 

 "Geek girl Elle Wittimer lives and breathes Starfield, the classic science-fiction series she grew up watching with her late father. So when she sees a cosplay contest for a new Starfield movie, she has to enter. The prize? An invitation to the ExcelsiCon Cosplay Ball and a meet-and-greet with the actor slated to play Federation Prince Carmindor in the reboot. With savings from her gig at the Magic Pumpkin food truck and her dad's old costume, Elle's determined to win - unless her stepsisters get there first.

Teen actor Darien Freeman used to live for cons - before he was famous. Now they're nothing but autographs and awkward meet-and-greets. Playing Carmindor is all he has ever wanted, but Starfield fandom has written him off as just another dumb heartthrob. As ExcelsiCon draws near, Darien feels more and more like a fake - until he meets a girl who shows him otherwise. But when she disappears at midnight, will he ever be able to find her again?

Part-romance, part-love letter to nerd culture, and all totally adorbs, Geekerella is a fairy tale for anyone who believes in the magic of fandom."

 

Okay so on to what I think!

 

I loved this book! It was funny and sincere and just full of geek references that I understood...okay maybe not all of them lol. I will say that I cried at least two times, at certain scenes. I was reading it out loud and just hearing the words coming out of my mouth of a scene, between Elle and her hideous step-sister Chloe. I cried and got angry, there was so much that I would have done to Chloe. I liked the interaction between Elle and Darien while they texted each other. I did a lot of awws and come on guys focus here! 

 

I of course could not stand the step-mother Catherine and Chloe. Cal the other step-sister wasn't too bad. Sage was funny as ever and I liked that she allowed herself to befriend Elle and not judge her too much. Darien's dad is a bit of a douche. His handler Gail is just a ball of nerves and is better at handling Darien. Elle is sweet, kind,and a bit helpless. Darien is sweet, a bit vain, and really geeky. 

 

This book like I said had me cry, laugh, get angry, and just wanted to hug it through and through. I loved the Geek reference that the author put in. Like Doctor Who and Supernatural. I loved that there was a Comic Con type scene, that it felt like I was apart of it. Even though I've never been to a Con....but I digress. It was still awesome.

 

So, of course I would recommend this book to everyone who is into geeky things and FANDOMS!!! lol! I will be back later with a brand new post. And, until then,

 

LATER DAYS!!!

A Wild Review!!!
Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail - Cheryl Strayed

Hey everyone and how's it going? I know it's been a while since I've last posted anything on here. But, I'm back and I'm here to bring to you all a book review yay!!! (Side note: be expecting a lot of reviews lol!) Today I am reviewing for you all "Wild" by Cheryl Strayed. This book has been on the back of my mind for while so let's get started!

 

If you haven't read or at least seen the movie, then gather around kids, get nice and cozy, enjoy a warm drink and I'll tell you all about it...hehe!

 

The story is centered around Cheryl and her journey through the Pacific Crest Trail that runs along the Mexican Boarder in California and ends somewhere near the Canadian Boarder. Cheryl was 26 at the time and it was in the mid 90's when she done this. She had been through a lot, the lost of her mom, had affairs, separates then divorces her husband, and she and her siblings don't talk as much, same goes with her former step-dad, and also starts using heroine. She one days sees the guide book for the Pacific Crest Trail and flips through it and then sets it down. But, with her divorce, dealing with her new boyfriend, and drugs. She decides to go and get the book and goes for it! There is hilarious moment when she tries on her backpack, that is so totally filled with unnecessary things. Needless say while getting up off the floor, she brings with her the hood of the AC unit in her room! Plus, other funny moment.

 

So, that is as best as I can get with explaining the book! I thought this book was amazing, I felt that I was taking the trail with her and experiencing what she went through, all in the comforts of my own home. She made me laugh a bit and annoyed sometimes. She meets a lot of amazing people along the way. Majority of them were men, but they respected her for doing the trial all by herself. She did come across not so pleasant people, but mostly she found a lot of kind people. Her favorite was a guy name Doug.

 

This made me want to do something like that, but then I go "eh better not" lol! I wouldn't mind hiking and just exploring a park, but only for a week or two. But, she is a brave woman for doing so and I admire her, not a lot of us would do something that is out of our comfort zone. No matter who you are, but I guess if you do, then you learn more about yourself, without all the judgement that you rely on from others about yourself. It will totally shake me to the core if I did the PCT or something similar. Because, all we can do is just think and walk. Plus, not to mention keeping a lookout for wild animals and such. 

 

I totally recommend this book to everyone! Whoever you are! So, here is where I'll end! I hope you all are blasting through your TBRs! I have quite a bit on my table! Until the next post, be fantastic! 

 

TOODLES!!!

 

I haven't done one of these for a long time haha!!!

Prince of Darkness (Justin de Quincy #4)- Sharon Kay Penman
Prince of Darkness (Justin de Quincy ,#4) - Sharon Kay Penman

I really wanted to savor this novel. Knowing that when I finished, there were no more Justin de Quincy books, was kind of a bummer. I didn't want to rush through only to be sad at the end. You know what they say about the best laid plans.........

 

I couldn't take this book slowly. I was hooked from the beginning. The pairing of Justin and Durand was brilliant. I know they have worked "together" in previous novels but never really have they had to make it obvious they are on the same side. If that doesn't make sense, read the books. I promise you won't be disappointed. Anyway, I loved the Justin and Durand pairing. It was medieval good cop/bad cop. I would love to read more books featuring that dynamic.

 

It's unfortunate Penman has never had the opportunity to really wrap this series up. The end certainly left an opening for future books. However, Penman has said on several occasions that her publisher won't release any more de Quincy books. *Sigh* I guess I will just have to settle for the other Penman novels I have not yet read.
