Musing Mondays (May 13)

MusingMondays5Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week…

• Describe one of your reading habits.
• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
• What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it! 
• Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
• Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!

My Musing: Product DetailsThe Fault in our Stars by John Green.

I am about half way through this book and it is not the type of book I normally read.  I actually hate sad books that make me cry but this one is done exceptionally well.  I don’t want to spoil it so I will leave it at that but will do a full review when I am finished reading (and crying).

Product Details Spirit by Brigid Kemmerer is the book that I can’t wait to get my hands on.  Apparently it has already been released (so not fair!) but will not be released in Canada until the end of the month.  I love love love this series.  It is rare to find a book that captures me as much as this story did.  Each book/novella is about one of the characters and you get an in depth look at each one making the story more compelling each time.  I can’t wait.

Friday Finds (May 10)

May 10, 2013

FF2_MdFRIDAY FINDS showcases the books you ‘found’ and added to your To Be Read (TBR) list… whether you found them online, or in a bookstore, or in the library — wherever! (they aren’t necessarily books you purchased).

So, come on — share with us your FRIDAY FINDS!

My daughter Rachelle came home from school today gushing about this book that she is reading.  She tells me that I need to read it because it is so moving and emotional and it makes her cry.  Any book that had that effect on my 15 year old daughter has to be worth reading.  Therefore this is my Friday finds for this week:

The Fault in our Stars by John GreenProduct Details

Two years post-miracle, sixteen-year-old Hazel is post-everything else, too; post-high school, post-friends and post-normalcy. And even though she could live for a long time (whatever that means), Hazel lives tethered to an oxygen tank, the tumours tenuously kept at bay with a constant chemical assault.

Enter Augustus Waters. A match made at cancer kid support group, Augustus is gorgeous, in remission, and shockingly to her, interested in Hazel. Being with Augustus is both an unexpected destination and a long-needed journey, pushing Hazel to re-examine how sickness and health, life and death, will define her and the legacy that everyone leaves behind. (Goodreads excerpt) 

I will post a review of this book after I read it.  I need to wrestle it from my daughter first!
