Get to know me book tag:

I think that it’s about time you guys know a bit more about me. There are a lot of things that you think you know about me that are just completely wrong. But that’s another story for another time. These are just surface questions.

  1. What’s your favorite color and do you have a book in that color? My favorite color is moss green. Yes I do. I just glanced at my bookshelf so I don’t know the exact book number but the first one I landed on was a book from “A Series of Unfortunate Events”.
  2. Describe yourself in three book characters. In my Office Book Tag I mentioned about how I am just like the character in “Out of His League”. I am just like Veronica and if you want to know why, link in Blogger’s Note. I am a little bit like Tessa from “After”, which sucks because I hate her, in a good way. I love “After”, and since I am like Tessa, I want to know where my Hardin is. And lastly, Lily from “P.S. I Like You”. I am exactly like this queen! Well besides the fact that she doesn’t read. But she is a song writer and she plays the guitar and she loves music and music is my second career.
  3. Hyped books– yay or nay? If yay, what was the most hyped book you have ever read? If nay, what was the most hyped book that you decided not to read? I have three for yay: “After”, “On the Come Up”, and “The Friend Zone”.
  4. Recommend one book per season. Winter: “Five Feet Apart”, Spring: “Shuffle, Repeat”, Summer: “The Unhoneymooners”, Fall: “Until Friday Night”.
  5. Name one book that wrecked you emotionally. “After”… Now that was just a ride I didn’t get in line for.
  6. Name a book that you will always recommend. “P.S. I Like You” is a YA contemporary so I will never have to think about the person I am recommending it to.
  7. What book will you recommend with tea and cookies? I think of this setting as lighthearted so I am going with a Cinderella retelling: “Geekerella”.
  8. What is your guilty pleasure book? “After”, by far.
  9. Favorite dessert and a book that reminds you of that dessert. I love a good lemon meringue pie. I have, and will always love lemon desserts. “This is Falling” is a favorite. It can be sweet and sour in every good way.
  10. Are you a procrastinator? If so, what book have you been procrastinating reading? I am. I wait until lunch to do my homework sometimes, which may not seem like a big deal to you but I get bad anxiety and feel I will forget about things I have to do. Which I do sometimes. I have been dreading but also been way to excited for, “Wesley James Ruined My Life”. I am so scared that I will be disappointed after a year of anticipation so I am putting it off until next week.

Blogger’s Note:

I’m freaking tired. School’s hard. I can’t believe I have like a million more years of this. But it’s fun, it’s fun. It’s been like what, four days and I’m already dead? I would love to tell you guys my age and make me look more dramatic but that would make the anonymous part of my blog not anonymous. Danielle Crone isn’t even my real name. Ha, and this is a get to know me book tag. Okay. I’m gonna edit this.

My Weird Bookish Habits

I am a pretty weird reader and these are some pretty weird reading quirks. Don’t forget to comment if you do any of these things because I really don’t want to be alone.

  1. I need to read with music in the background (not when it’s an audiobook) unless it’s a classic.
  2. When I read classics I have to get the audiobook and the physical book so I can focus on the words.
  3. When I read, I mouth the words and make the facial expressions.
  4. I also do hand gestures.
  5. I always read the last sentence of the book because then it makes me want to read it more so I can now how we got there.
  6. Sometimes I read out loud if I want to bring out the theater side in me. I love acting and “preforming” a good book is a cute thing I love.
  7. In my head, the writing part of me corrects a writing style I don’t like.
  8. I can’t read fantasy books. I have to listen to the audio or it will bore me. Same with most book tropes and genres besides romance.
  9. In the margins, if a character does something dumb, I write a smartass response to them.
  10. I don’t care if I have a bookmark on me because I am really good at memorizing numbers and will just memorize the page I left off on.

Blogger’s Note:

Book 35: The Wedding Date

By: Jasmine Guillory

☆☆☆☆

Plot (Goodreads Summary):

Agreeing to go to a wedding with a guy she gets stuck with in an elevator is something Alexa Monroe wouldn’t normally do. But there’s something about Drew Nichols that’s too hard to resist. On the eve of his ex’s wedding festivities, Drew is minus a plus one. Until a power outage strands him with the perfect candidate for a fake girlfriend… After Alexa and Drew have more fun than they ever thought possible, Drew has to fly back to Los Angeles and his job as a pediatric surgeon, and Alexa heads home to Berkeley, where she’s the mayor’s chief of staff. Too bad they can’t stop thinking about the other… They’re just two high-powered professionals on a collision course toward the long distance dating disaster of the century–or closing the gap between what they think they need and what they truly want…

Review:

First off, Alexa is awesome and Drew is an idiot. Well, he was until the end. The relationship between them throughout the book is because of miscommunication. The Epilogue gives the answer to my question: Did they still have communication problems? The answer is no. I love that Jasmine Guillory saw the issue and fixed it. Other than that, the entire time they were together was heart warming.

The secondary characters! I called all of their relationships. It was very subtle but very cute.

The only issue I had with this book was its placement. The location was in California. This is not the time nor the place to express my feelings about California, but I will say that I have multiple issues with it.

And I didn’t think that what Drew did to Molly was as bad as they made it out to be. Guys get fearful about commitment all the time. Though I do understand why people were so upset with Drew because of the birthday situation. See, idiot.

Blogger’s Note:

I’m starting school on Tuesday so that might be why I am late on my reviews in the future. The school system in California is so different and worse from Arizona. Okay, I’ll stop with California now. No offense to my California readers, I just didn’t like it there. If you want to know my reasons for not liking it, you should read my book, “Broken Borders”, on Wattpad (@Danielle_Crone). I have been trying to cut back on how long my reviews are and this is about the length I want to go with.

Love you all ♡

All Time Favorite Books

I’m gonna go backwards just because. All of these books have reviews that are linked in my Blogger’s Note.

5) “Best Kind of Broken” by Chelsea Fine. This book is written perfectly with the story line and everything that I want to say that I don’t have room for is in my review.

4) “The Wrong Bachelor” by Alexandra Moody. This book is the second book that was on my favorites list. The plot in general is enthralling and I will always love an enemies to lovers book.

3) “P.S. I Like You” by Kasie West. The first book that brought me into reading and writing is this one. I love this book so much and it means so much to me. Cliche, I know.

2) “This is Falling” by Ginger Scott. This a sweet and dramatic book all at once and I love it. Ginger Scott is a favorite author in general so obviously one of her books is bound to be a favorite.

1) “Beautiful Disaster” by Jamie McGuire. Lovely Like Laura on YouTube recommends this book a lot and she said it was a favorite so I thought I would try it out. I have read it four times. That should sum it up.

Blogger’s Note:

Hey guys, if you couldn’t tell, the blog got customized and I love it so much like this! It’s absolutely amazing and I am obsessed. I don’t really know what to put here so I hope you have a great day.

Book 34: Best Kind of Broken

By: Chelsea Fine

☆☆☆☆☆

Plot (Goodreads Summary):

Pixie and Levi haven’t spoken in nearly a year when they find themselves working―and living―at the same inn in the middle of nowhere. Once upon a time, they were childhood friends. But that was before everything went to hell. And now things are… awkward. All they want to do is avoid each other, and their past, for as long as possible. But now that they’re forced to share a bathroom, and therefore a shower, keeping their distance from one another becomes less difficult than keeping their hands off each other. Welcome to the hallway of awkward tension and sexual frustration, folks. Get comfy. It’s going to be a long summer.

Review:

I seriously have no clue why I never did a review on this book. During a recent post I mentioned this book and tried to find the link to the review for it. There was no review. So here were are, righting it.

The entire book is a mystery until the end for me. I had no freaking clue about what happened until near the end. I had a hunch on what happened but not the way it happened.

Let’s just have a little conversation real quick. I cannot control whether or not you drink but I will ask that you be prepared. Have a designated driver: a person that can’t drink so that they can drive. Or order an Uber. Just be prepared because I don’t want you to die. Live as long as you can and that will include being prepared. Pixie and Charity were not prepared when they went out to that party and drank.

Okay, now that we’re done with that, on to the not so serious review.

First off, the relationship. I don’t even know how to put this into words. The relationship is so sad but it also gives me joy knowing that the story ends happily. The entire relationship in the beginning was walking on ice. I was waiting for them to make a move. All of the awkward moments made me smile no matter how big my second hand embarrassment was.

The family aspect of this book was so depressing, though. Pixie’s mom is living trash. And then Levi’s family is torn apart. They started talking again at the end of the book but the sister’s death really tested their family strength.

This book was absolutely hilarious. The first sentence had me dead (the first sentence is in my Favorite First Sentences post) and then the goat! If you want to know about the goat you will just have to read the book.

This review is crap and I am sorry but there are just so many things that go on in. Either way, the book is awesome and it should be on everyone’s TBR.

Blogger’s Note:

I don’t know if I have mentioned my intentions about my reviews, but here it is. I give the book and my rating on it. Then I give the plot so that you can make an opinion for yourself on the book and if you want to read it or not. And then if you really want to be spoiled or just want some crappy entertainment, then you read the review. But that’s just my perspective on it. Everyone has there opinions. I’m not even gonna address why I didn’t post this past week. I did two out of the four challenges for the July Yearathon. I was busier for the fourth than anticipated.
