Second Chance Sunday – I’m Not Her by Janet Gurtler

Second Chance Sunday – I..

Okay, I’m going to admit to the thing you should never admit to. I waited to read this book because of the cover. I know right? I did the cliche thing and judged a book by its cover. Well shame on me because I’m Not Her was a story that should be read immediately and should be read often. The cover says nothing about the amazingness in the pages and the heartbreaking story of a family having to deal with something no family should have to be put through. This book made me smile and cry and smile again. I’m […]

She is tormented by her thoughts and memories, by the nights she lived in the arena with little hope of survival for both her and the boy that had become so important to her. And to top it all off everyone she knows and loves is put into danger because of […]

Second Chance Sunday – The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Second Chance Sunday – T..

So I must admit, I really tried to rebel and not read this book like I did with Twilight(and will continue to do), but after the 7th person told me to read it and someone voted for Peeta on the book boyfriend list I created I caved. I bought it on my NOOK for a markdown price and I was thrilled. In my head, I’m thinking why pay full price for a book that I have no interest in. Truth is, I would have paid 100 times what I did for the first one it was that good! I am […]
