50 Books By The End of the Year

I decided after finishing Miss Peregrine's that I wanted to read 100 books by the end of the year. I later cut that in half since Da' Hubby got a bit sad that I would pay too much attention to my books and not cuddle with him so I am planning on reading 50 books by the end of the year. 

I started with Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children because I had heard so much about it and I really enjoyed it. I plan on reading the next book pretty soon.

Next I started listening to The Maze Runner mainly because of the movie coming out soon. I am curious on how they make this book come to life.

I love me some sassy Southern ladies, and I am a big fan of Celia Rivenbark so this was a must read for me. I was cracking up the whole time and I agree with her on so many aspects of this book.

I had to continue on with this series, I needed to know what was going on next. This book is not as good as the first like most sequels (sorry to say) but it wasn't horrible. I feel like they were trying to push a love triangle on us and I am just not feeling it, the drama should stay where is it one not in the relationship with the characters IMHO.

P.S. let me know if you like it better when I just focus on one book at a time or should I keep with this monthly review?

Also what are y'all reading now? Do y'all have book challenges, if so how many are you wanting to read?

Random Babble

To be honest I do not have much to say...and I haven't for a while.

I was going to post about what I got for Christmas, but to me they can come off braggy. Don't get me wrong I love what I got for Christmas and am so thankful, my husband spoils me and I do the same to him, but not everyone goes all out like we do. I will say that my favorite gift was this:

I love my new camera 'Sophia' and this is why I have not taken many pictures with my phone for instagram lately.

I might do a review of a new game we got Cards Against Humanity which is an amazingly horrible fun game. We have played it a handful of times and let's just say not everyone was a fan.

I have not really been reading much since Something Worth Fighting For. I started Neil Gaiman's American Gods but could not really get into it. It seems like a good book I just haven't been in the right mood to read that type of book I guess and maybe because while reading it I kept picturing the characters from Supernatural. I need to come in to that book with a fresh head and start again. Maybe go for something silly first to clean my slate.

I had full intention of doing a cheesy SyFy movie review but the show was more like soft core porno so I promptly turned it off maybe 15 minutes into the movie and do not recommend watching 2 Headed Shark with anyone who is not mature. Every time Carmen Electric came on screen it went into slow motion and zoomed in on her, it was ridiculous.

That is really all I have to say. Da Hubby and I are about to start gutting our guest bathroom, guestroom, and craft room and redo them before we get new floors everywhere so I am not sure how much craft stuff I will be doing soon. Hopefully soon I will be able to show y'all my beautifully remodeled house soon...just waiting on our contractor to set a date to put a beam in our attic so we can knock out some support walls to open up the house a bit.

I am babbling a little too much now so TTFN - Ta Ta For Now
