If so, check out this one I just finished. I have heard about this book and although it received mixed reviews, I really wanted to check it out for myself

That said, I picked it up yesterday and finished it about two hours later. Yup.  That good?   Maybe.  That engaging? Maybe?  I am thinking YOU need to read this so I can have someone to discuss it with because………well, just read it?

So, if you are thinking about an engaging, quick read, you should think about reading “I’m Thinking About Ending Things”, then tell me what you think

If you are a Chuck Palahniuk fan, I’m thinking you should read this

If you have already read “I’m Thinking of Ending Things” I think you should join in on the discussion below. Just let it go. Thoughts? Loved it? Hated it?

Ok, yes this post is a bit obnoxious, maybe it’s the warmer weather, maybe it’s this book ?

  • Love books or reading in general? Have you ever hear of the 215 Festival? It is scheduled for November 5-8 in Northern Liberties!

Founded in Philadelphia in 2001, The 215 Festival is a literary arts festival celebrating the written, spoken and visualized word. The 215 Festival showcases the vibrant community of literary talent in Philadelphia, and highlights the continued relevance of letters in a growing range of mediums, from books and poetry to music, film, and blogs. To help contextualize our local scene, the 215 Festival also seeks to present national and international talent. Past events include author readings, book-themed dance parties, literature-informed musical events, book fairs, literary film screenings, and blogger panel discussions. Over the years, the 215 Fest has played host to some of today’s most interesting writers, including Jonathan Lethem, Neal Pollack, Ben Greenman, Matt Klam, Amy Fusselman, John Hodgman, Legs McNeil, George Saunders, Sarah Vowell, Zadie Smith, Jeffrey Eugenides and Patti Smith among many, many others.

I do not see an upcoming date but I will look into it and let you know!  Sounds pretty cool!

  1. Currently reading The Lost Girls and it’s so intriguing! It follows the lives of relatives in different decades and connects the pieces of a family tragedy/mystery.

    I do enjoy movies made into books, but i hate when they are TOO different from the original book (my sister’s keeper by jodi piccoult comes to mind).

    1. Ooooo I have that book (The Lost Girls) on my To Read list 🙂 I also want to read Push Not the River. It is part of the Poland Trilogy. Historical fiction about poland in the 1700s, about Lady Anna Maria Berezoska

      I really like reading the book first and then seeing the movie, I kind of like comparing it, and honestly, i think reading the book before makes the movie more understandable and enjoyable for me, i dont expect much!
