Reactions to Recent Reads 05/03/13


A few words about my latest library books: 



Spicoli said it best. This book is awesome.





Spectacular, impressive, marvelous...and all sorts of similar adjectives.





An utterly fascinating look at the ins and outs of Scientology.

  1. I've been meaning to read The Snow Child for SO LONG.

    My book club is meeting to discuss Going Clear tomorrow and all we've done for the past week is threaten to Sea Org/RPF each other if we don't bring certain foods to the get together. It's going to be crazy fun. So glad you read and enjoyed it!

      Now that's a discussion I would love to be part of! Watch out for Zenu, ha ha. You'll have to let me know how it goes :)

  2. I'm with Shannon and have been meaning to read The Snow Child. You pretty much just clinched it for me (which you so often do - I think I need a Relentless Reader TBR list)

  5. I don't usually read non fiction books, unless they are of the true crime variety, but an insight into Scientology would be pretty interesting I imagine... It's one of those religions I know very little about... But then again, am I the only one?

    1. I'm a giant fan of nonfiction. I don't know why but it's true :) They try to keep their stuff close to their chest so no, you certainly aren't the only one!

  7. I just added Going Clear to my list after seeing it mentioned at Bonjour Cass. Now, five minutes later, you're recommending this too. I think the universe is trying to tell me something. :-)

  12. I have to be honest, I totally was underwhelmed by the end of The Snow Child. I read the whole book just knowing that I'd cry at the end, that it would be so emotional, and then it ended and I wasn't emotional at all (and I cry at EVERYTHING).

    But I did looooooove The Twelve Tribes of Hattie.

    1. I knew you weren't a huge fan of The Snow Child. You know when you love a book and you think everyone should love it? I have a little bit of that feeling for it, lol. But thank goodness we're all different and have different tastes. The world would be awfully boring if we all liked the same things :)

      And yes, Hattie is remarkable!

  13. I enjoyed The Twelve Lives of Hattie and glad you did too. I love fairy tales so putting The Snow Child on my tbr list is a no-brainer.

  14. Glad you liked The Snow Child! I was looking at the copies of Mathis's book the other day, trying to decide whether to read it or not, I think your opinion there has made my decision :)

    1. Thanks :) Once in a while when I'm looking through blogs I see a bunch of books that I want to and haven't read and it makes me a bit nuts, lol.

  16. "Drowning in Feelings"-- That is the perfect description for Tweleve Tribes of Hattie. I read it a couple of months ago and it still creeps up on me at times. Going Clear sounds like a fascinating read!
    Happy Reading,
