Hello my beautiful followers! I’ve been so busy lately I really haven’t had time to post. I’ve been in a writing and reading slump, I’ve only read about 20 books this year when by this time I would normally have read about 50. I love reading. But I didn’t always. There was a time when I would rather run laps(I would rather die then run laps just for some perspective) then read. Looking back on it, I often wonder why I hated reading. It just doesn’t make sense. I’ve always loved stories. Telling them and listening to them. I loved telling stories ton such an extent that my kindergarten teacher told my parents to write down the stories I told. So yeah, if you want to read about my husband who left me because I made bad coffee or the husband who died in a house fire along with my child Poopalatte(who actually didn’t die and was just kidnapped by the way), just let me know and you can read about all my husbands. As a child I also loved movies and TV shows, getting sucked into a story, another world with new experiences, was my favorite pass time. One would assume I would have loved reading, its one of the best ways to tell a story. But instead I hated it. That was all true till the end of 6th grade. For our summer reading we were assigned to read The Outsiders. Terrified that I would not be able to finish the book, let alone the other two books I was supposed to read, I recruited my dad (and my overly competitive side) to help me get through the reading. The plan was I would race my dad whoever finished first the book first won. A week later I had finished the book while my dad had just started the first chapter. By the end of the summer I had read 20 books. Since then I have’t stopped. The next year, 2014 I read 104, in 2015 I read 136, and last year I read about 116 books. In total I’ve read about 420 books, 80334 pages and a whole lotta words(Stats are from my Goodreads account). I know you’re thinking, ” Damn this girl must have no social life” but I assure you I am simply a fast reader and do socialize on occasion. So I’m not really sure where I was going with this post but there you go, hey at least I wrote something! That’s my reading history, very interesting stuff I know. Hopefully this summer I’ll have more time to make so meaning full posts:)
Cassidy Shea is more commonly known as @TwitterGirl. Twitter Girl is a sassy, sarcastic, clever and often rude Twitter. After losing her job as a reporter and her boyfriend due to a controversial tweet, she’s offered a position on Will Becker’s presidential campaign. All she has to do is tweet bad, catchy things against the other candidates. That’s easy for our twitter girl, sarcasticness and sass come to her as naturally as breathing. It doesn’t hurt that Will is easy on the eyes and quite single at the moment. But what happens when you add in some friendly competition from her best friend for his eyes? Sprinkle in Cassidy’s disabled brother who’s totally in love with the best friend? And maybe add a pinch of an adorable coworker? You end up with an amazing novel by Nic Tatano. This is politics and with politics comes secrets, drama and scandal. Will twitter girl be able to handle all of Will Becker’s secrets? Well, you’ll just have to #findout 😉
Tweet Tweet this book was sweet. I read TwitterGirl back in May of this year. Nic is truly an amazing author. While I haven’t read anything else (nor will I probably read anything else) by Nic Tatano, I really enjoyed this book. It’s hard not to fall in love with some of our male characters here and I think every girl wishes to have even just a spark of Cassidy’s sass. This book has it’s laugh-out-loud funny part yet still has a captivating plot. Filled with unexpected as well as easily predicted twists this was a fairly fast read. However while I mostly read what would be considered young adult (YA) novels, this is not. I would recommend TwitterGirl for ages 16-55. This is defiantly a chick-lit (like a chick-flick but for books -literature- not movies). TwitterGirl definitely has it’s romance going, and a fair share of” awes” and “ohhs”. Some slightly mature subjects were discussed but nothing you wouldn’t find in a PG-13 Movie. Rating wise I would give this an 8 out of 10. While I loved TwitterGirl it’s not really a book to write home about. Definitely a good read but not a life changing oh my God wow type of a book.
Sorry about how little I have been posting guys. IT’S BEEN LIKE 8 MONTHS!!! I got side tracked with the end of school year buzz then I had a crazy busy/awesome summer. I also just started high school a few weeks ago. The only reason I got the time to post this is because I am home, sick 😦 I’ve also been pretty busy reading. SInce January first 2015 I have read over 110 novels. A big chunk of which are from wattpad which I am planning on (if i have time) writing a post about in the future. Love to all my wonderful followers…………
