Worst of Friends: Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and the True Story of the American Feud by Larry Day and Suzanne Jurmain
Worst of Friends: Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and the True Story of an American Feud - Suzanne Jurmain,Larry Day

Worst of Friends: Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and the True Story of the American Feud by Larry Day and Suzanne Jurmain is a level S on the Fountas and Pinnell reading level scale. Worst of Friends: Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and the True Story of the American Feud is about two friends who had completely different views. Thomas Jefferson and John Adams disagreed so much about how to run the newly founded United States that they created two different political parties to run against each other in the elections. This book has a lot of history and humor, and ultimately shows a friendship that puts aside its difference to keep their friendship strong. This book would be wonderful for a history lesson to show that not everyone agreed on how this country should run, but it is good to have differences to make the best government and rules. Students could write about a time when they did not agree with a friend, and how they resolved the argument.

Book Review: The Worst Things In Life Are Also Free (Dear Dumb Diary, #10) By Jen Benton
The Worst Things In Life Are Also Free - Jim Benton

 

This series was such a big part of my childhood and nostalgia does amazing things for it! The story is entertaining and passed the time quite well. I still love Jamie Kelly's commentary about all the situations she and her friends get into. I still continue to see where my type of humor started getting developed way back when with this series. I also loved the PSA of donating hair to organizations that make wigs for people to help them feel better about what they're going through at that moment! 

Favorite Quote:

"I'm really good at ignoring unpleasant feelings if it is really inconvenient to feel them."

Release Day ARC Review: The Best Worst Honeymoon Ever by Andrew Grey
The Best Worst Honeymoon Ever - Andrew Grey

I've never been to Bonaire, but after reading this book, I want to go. There are quite a few sections inside that read like an advertisement for the place, and I want to go. If you pop over to my blog, you'll see a couple of images of the reefs as well, taken by none other than the author.

Here's a link.

Tommy Gordon is getting ready for his wedding, straightening his tie just moments before the ceremony is supposed to start, when his groom-to-be tells him the wedding is off. Xavier (remember the name of the rancid jerkface) has cold feet/second thoughts, and it's goodbye, Tommy. 

Heartbroken, Tommy wants nothing more than to hide, but there's the honeymoon trip, already planned and paid for, and what shall he do with that, amirite? Who wants to go alone on what's supposed to have been the honeymoon?

Tommy's best friend Grayson, who made the suggestion that Tommy take the trip anyway, finds himself and his young son Petey invited to join Tommy in paradise for a bit of snorkeling, relaxation, and enjoying the scenery.

Grayson's had a crush on Tommy for a long while, but he hasn't been a position or brave enough to change the status quo and ask for more.

And off they are, because when you have money, last minute ticket changes are not a hindrance, and thus the romance begins.

Slowly, of course, because Tommy is still mourning what might have been, and kicking his own rear end because he's just so pathetic and worthless that not even a gold digger like Xavier would want him. 

Grayson is no gold digger, just a dude with a heart of gold, and while he has his son to think of, he is all on board with wooing Tommy, with Petey's encouragement. 

I really, really want to go to Bonaire. The descriptions in the book are vivid and enticing, and the author did a fine job transporting this reader into paradise with his words alone. 

Obviously, there's a bit of angst, what with Tommy's self-doubts and Grayson's fears of losing his friend, but they overcome all that. They overcome Xavier showing up at the resort uninvited (the nerve of that guy) and threatening Tommy (the NERVE of that guy), and Grayson making the unwilling acquaintance of a Man O' War (ouchie) and a bit of drama at the end just before all is well and they live happily ever after.

So yeah, this is fluffy fluff, with a wee bit of angst, and beautiful scenery, and would someone please invite me to go to Bonaire? 

It's the perfect beach vacation read, so get this book and enjoy it on a day in the sun.


** I received a free copy of this book from its publisher in exchange for an honest review. **

Walking Dead Vol. 1 - Days Gone Bye
The Walking Dead, Vol. 1: Days Gone Bye - Tony Moore,Robert Kirkman

 

The Walking Dead will be the zombie movie that never ends.

- from the introduction by Robert Kirkman

 

I'm a huge fan of The Walking Dead tv show. It's hard to put into words what this show means to me and how it has played with my emotions over the years. I can't believe I waited this long to read the graphic novel. 

 

I loved everything about this graphic novel and I can't wait to read Volume 2.

The World's Worst Boyfriend (The Bad Boyfriend series, book 1)
The World's Worst Boyfriend (The Bad Boyfriend series, book 1) - Erika Kelly Erika Kelly has a talent for presenting characters that are heavily flawed but likeable nonetheless. Fin and Calliope are like oil and water. At times they don't mix. The back and forth bickering, love, hate, lust relationship and social media all serve as a stepping stone on their road maturity. Mistakes are made, hearts are broken and lessons are learned. With a realism that is humorous, heartwarming and so very tempting.
