There are a ton of bloggers out there that are probably way more intresting than myself. I decideded to just go for it. Even if I just have one or two readers. I love talking about the books I’m reading or have read and frankly I think my husband is getting tired of listening to me, even if he doesn’t say it.  I have been a reader for as long as I can remeber, probably 30 years now. I like to explore different genres. Just to give you a little background on me I’m going to list some of my favorites below.

  • Book(s): Thinner and Misery by Stephen King and Little Women by Louisa May Alcott.
  • Series: The Infernal Devices, The Mortal Instruments, The Lunar Chronicles
  • Character(s): Magnus Bane, Sirius Black

Book vs Movie: The Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris

There’s a killer on the loose who knows that beauty is only skin deep, and a trainee investigator who’s trying to save her own hide. The only man that can help is locked in an asylum. But he’s willing to put a brave face on — if it will help him escape.


HOLY SHIT! I can’t believe it took me this long to read this book. It was FANTASTIC!!!! Everything about this book was amazing! I was never bored. I flew threw it.

Thomas Harris does an amazing job creating the characters and giving them life. As always Hannibal “the cannibal” Lecter is creepy as hell. A favotire of mine. Jame Gumb is awesome too.

At first I thought there would be no way I could pick which was better. The movie or the book but in the end the book won out. They will both have the same star rating of course. But Harris gives more life to the characters than the movie did. The movie seemed to centralize around the killers only where in the book just gave the plot a little something more. I loved it so much. I jumped right into the next book, Hannibal!





A classic and always will be. Just a great and creepy thriller. I don’t really consider it horror for me. More of a psychological thriller. Anthony Hopkins is a favorite actor and is amazing at playing Hannibal Lecter. Jodie Foster (Clarice Starling) and Ted Levine (Jame Gumb aka Buffalo Bill) are my other two favotires. They really did the movie well.


After reading the book and then rewatching the movie I was a little sad at what they left out. I know movies always cut things out but without that extra stuff that Harris wrote inthe book it made the movie seem a little flat compared to the book. While I do love it and always will consider it a classic, I feel the characters are really one demential in the movie. The personal stuff in the book gave them more life. Specially the side characters like Jack Crawford.


It was also sad that they cute out a lot of the work that Clarice does for the investigation into Buffalo Bill. If you only watch the movie it makes sense and is great. But once you read the book and then watch (or rewatch) the movie you look at the movie in a totally different light and nothing really makes sense. Gah does that even make any sense. It makes sense in my head. Anywho the book totally won out in this case. But because of the amazing acting by the three actors mentioned above it still gets the same rating as the book.



99 Red Balloons by Elisabeth Carpenter Review

Two girls go missing, decades apart. What would you do if one was your daughter?

When eight-year-old Grace goes missing from a sweetshop on the way home from school, her mother Emma is plunged into a nightmare. Her family rallies around, but as the police hunt begins, cracks begin to emerge.

What are the secret emails sent between Emma’s husband and her sister? Why does her mother take so long to join the search? And is Emma really as innocent as she seems?

Meanwhile, ageing widow Maggie Taylor sees Grace’s picture in the newspaper. It’s a photograph that jolts her from the pain of her existence into a spiralling obsession with another girl – the first girl who disappeared…


WOW! This book was better than I thought it was going to be. I went in with no expecations since I had not heard a lot about it but man I was blown away. Anytime I had something figured out I would be fooled! All the way up to the end!

I really enjoyed all the characters except Emma’s mother. Ugh I could have punched that bitch! She was so nasty and rude and mean and blah! But…..there is a reason for it and man when you find out you will be like WTF????? I mean I thought my family was f*cked up but this family took it to a whole new level of f*cked up!

Also you have to pay close attention to the story to get the title. It is easy to miss. But I LOVE the reason for the title! This book could have sucked BIG time and it still would have gotten a star for the title alone. Luckily though this book was fanstastic so it got many stars!

Once again this is a book where I can’t go into too much detail about the story or it will spoil it. I love that there really wasn’t any romance. It was a pure thriller through and through.




The Roanoke Girls by Amy Engel review

Everyone wants to be a Roanoke girl.

But you won’t when you know the truth.

Lane Roanoke is fifteen when she comes to live with her grandparents and fireball cousin at the Roanoke family’s rural estate following the suicide of her mother. Over one long, hot summer, Lane experiences the benefits of being one of the rich and beautiful Roanoke girls.

But what she doesn’t know is being a Roanoke girl carries a terrible legacy: either the girls run, or they die. For there is darkness at the heart of Roanoke, and when Lane discovers its insidious pull, she must make her choice..


I had heard mixed reviews about this book before starting it so I went in with no expectations. I was so thrilled when I started to enjoy it. I had guessed the twist pretty early on but it didn’t ruin my enjoyment of the story. It was dark and twisted and creepy and well gross!

I enjoyed all the characters. I liked that the author went back in time to give the back stories of the mothers of the girls. It really tied the story together. I think this would be great on screen, if done right! I want to give a warning but I can’t because then it would be spoiled but lets just say do not read this if you have an issue with….ummmm sexual stuff….ugh thats all I can say.

I really can’t say a whole lot about this without spoiling the whole story. You just have to trust me when I say this was a fun and intriguing story!



Anne Boleyn: A King’s Obsession by Alison Weir. Review by Tera & Cat

Collage 2018-01-11 13_35_26

“It is the spring of 1527. Henry VIII has come to Hever Castle in Kent to pay court to Anne Boleyn. He is desperate to have her. For this mirror of female perfection he will set aside his Queen and all Cardinal Wolsey’s plans for a dynastic French marriage.

Anne Boleyn is not so sure. She loathes Wolsey for breaking her betrothal to the Earl of Northumberland’s son, Harry Percy, whom she had loved. She does not welcome the King’s advances; she knows that she can never give him her heart.

But hers is an opportunist family. And whether Anne is willing or not, they will risk it all to see their daughter on the throne…”

Man this book was amazing. But I really wasn’t surprised in the least. I am becoming a HUGE Alison Weir fan. I can’t wait to get all her books and read them.

I didn’t know much about Anne Bolyen except what I knew from watching Tudors. And frankly they didn’t do a very good job now that I have read this book. I use to hate Anne, and now I feel sorry for her. Like I do most women in that era. I actually had someone comment to me on a social media post stating that “she strung him along for years” Ummmm so because she was protecting her virtue she deserved to have her head chopped off just because she couldn’t produce a living male heir? Ugh of course the comment was from a guy *insert eye roll*

Anne was a fierce lady. Although she didn’t start out like that. It wasn’t until she became a lady for the Archduchess Margaret of Austria, Dowager Duchess of Savoy and Regent of the Netherlands did she start learning how to stand her ground as a women. She started becoming very outspoken. Which was very unheard of in that era. I loved it. As a women of the modern age it’s nice to see that a few women learned to push back a little even back then. Anne was a very well-educated young lady. She was no dummy.

I loved that she stood up to King Henry VIII all those years and refused to sleep with him until they were married. She refused to become a mistress. Honestly I’m starting to fall in love with all Henry’s wives and LOATHING Henry. He was a complete and total jackass.

While watching the show, Tudors, I thought Anne was a snob and pushing and if she would have just shut her mouth she would still have a head. But….I was so wrong! While I did cringe sometimes reading this and saying to myself “Oh Anne if you had only….” but at the same time I wanted to cheer her along. She was so miserable. I don’t believe she ever loved Henry. I believe her only love was Henry Percy, son of the 5th Earl of Northumberland. When Cardinal Wolsey lied to her and make her engagement void to Henry Percy and forced Henry to marry another Anne was heartbroken. From then on I think anything she did was for revenge. Her marriage to the King was her ticket to revenge on Wolsey. Who in my opinion was a slime bag.

As far as the accusations King Henry VIII made against Anne was complete fabrication. It was another excuse for him to get rid of one wife to take another. He needed that male heir and he would stop at nothing to get it.

Alison Weir once again did such an amazing job with Anne Boleyn’s story. Bringing it to life and making her out to be who she truly was. Anne gets so much crap from people all because of the King and his group of slime bags. My heart breaks for her. And that ending was the worst. Not as in the worst ending/writing but in painful to read and brought me to tears.

I can’t wait for the next installment in this series!

My star review:

Another great book by Alison Weir, not surprisingly.

Instagram 1

This one is going to be tough giving my feelings without spoiling anything.

Well, you all should know who Anne Boleyn is, it’s common knowledge she is the second wife of Henry VIII, who, after not producing a son that was “promised”, had her head chopped off. So, knowing all that I read the book at a very slow speed. I even did that with the second season on the Tudors. No one wants to see their favourite character die, especially like that.

I’m just going to put my opinions out there from the start; I believe Anne Boleyn is innocent, and the only reason these outlandish accusations happened was because Henry lost interest (as per usual), and desperately wanted that son as soon as possible.

I’ve had people come up to me and say Anne is a hussy…. I’m not making any of that up.

Like Alison Weir has stated in her book, Anne didn’t even want to get with Henry at the beginning, I just believe she was hungry for power and she believed she could make the world a better place. She did, she had the bible translated so everyone can read it.

This book was brilliant, you got to see an intelligent side to Anne, and where she got her ideas and independence from. I’ve always believed Anne wasn’t an idiot, that’s why I never believed the accusations.

I don’t know how I’m going to feel about reading the next book in the series, Jane Seymour. I have strong opinions about her, and none of them are good. Saying that, I am looking forward in reading about her, mainly because of Alison Weir.

My star review:


The Princess Bride by William Goldman book vs movie

“What happens when the most beautiful girl in the world marries the handsomest prince of all time and he turns out to be…well…a lot less than the man of her dreams?

As a boy, William Goldman claims, he loved to hear his father read the S. Morgenstern classic, The Princess Bride. But as a grown-up he discovered that the boring parts were left out of good old Dad’s recitation, and only the “good parts” reached his ears.

Now Goldman does Dad one better. He’s reconstructed the “Good Parts Version” to delight wise kids and wide-eyed grownups everywhere.

What’s it about? Fencing. Fighting. True Love. Strong Hate. Harsh Revenge. A Few Giants. Lots of Bad Men. Lots of Good Men. Five or Six Beautiful Women. Beasties Monstrous and Gentle. Some Swell Escapes and Captures. Death, Lies, Truth, Miracles, and a Little Sex.

In short, it’s about everything.”

princess bride

So I had never read this book (but seen the movie growing up). So I thought now would be a good time to read it and then rewatch the movie. I really had no expectations going into this book except to be entertained. Which I was but…..I did have a few issues with the book. So let’s get into it. I will try to refrain from spoilers but it might be hard. So if you haven’t read or seen the movie you might want to hold off on reading this review.

So at the beginning of the book I was so damn confused. I actually had to stop reading and start googling. I didn’t really care for him pretending that he didn’t write the book but that he was going to abridge the book when in all actuality he did write this book and the other guy is just a figment of his imagination. Him talking about how his dad read him the book when he was sick and yada yada was kind of boring. Well maybe not the part where the story got read to a sick kid but the rest could have been left out. All that stuff about his life, and other book he wrote and his adventure with this book and such. So that didn’t entertain me at all. I almost wanted to give up but I held out waiting for the actual story to start.

I LOVED the actual Princess Bride story. I did find myself skipping over the parts where he was “abridging” the story. It was boring and not needed. I felt it added nothing to the story at all. The only parts I did enjoy in the abridged part was when the story-teller and the sick kid were talking. I thought that part of it was very good and it flowed well. But he still didn’t need to “pretend” he wasn’t the real author. Anywho lets move on

Of course about 90% of the characters were extremely annoying but….it was suppose to be! It’s suppose to be a cheesy, annoying, stupid love story. It reminded me of the stuff Mel Brooks did (Spaceballs, Robin Hood: Men in Tights..). So I was so entertained.

Every time I read anything that Vizzini said I read it in the actors voice. I absolutely loved the back stories we got for Inigo Montoya and Fezzik the giant. I was heartbroken to not get a back story of Westly. I would have loved to know more about him before he became a farm boy for Buttercup’s family.

The ending kind of made me sad. Like what?? You can’t end it like that! I need more, where did they go? What did they do? What happened to Humperdinck? I am sure it was left open so you could make your own ending but I still wanted more.




So immediately after finishing the book I popped in the movie. of course I loved the movie. Even more than the book actually. But I am sad that a few things were left out. Like always. But being the movie was only an 1 hour and 38 minutes they could have put a few things in and it would have been great. Like when the Count comes to the farm asking about the milking of the cows. I mean come on why did they leave out that part. The beginning just went too fast for my liking.

Vizzini was annoying as hell and I wanted to throw him overboard and let the eels (in the book its sharks) eat him. So I didn’t shed a single tear when he died. I love Inigo and Fezzik. I was happy they turned good towards the end. Well maybe not “good good” but they sided with Westly and Buttercup. Now Mr. Westly. I could have punched him a couple of times. Like right before they entered the swamp. He was kind of an asshole. But as soon as I saw his smiling face and dreamy eyes I was over it. I’m crushing HARD on Westly. More so the actor, Cary Elwes, who played him. Gah he’s so handsome. Oh and just an FYI Cary Elwes plays Robin in Robin Hood: Men in Tights.

Prince Humderdinck reminded me a lot of two characters…Prince John and Sheriff of Rottingham from the movie Robin Hood: Men in Tights. I can’t tell you exactly what made me compare him to those characters but I kept picturing them.

The ending was basically the same as the book. Open ended. Leaving you wanting more.

Movie rating:


Besides the few differences between the book and movie everything else was pretty much the same. Even though I liked the movie more than the book I still would recommend reading the book.

Arachnophobia by Nicholas Edwards…Book/movie review

“A scientific expedition to South America has discovered a deadly new species of spiders. When one of the spiders is transported to California, it makes its way to the home of Dr. Ross Jennings. He’s terrified of spiders.

Now the spiders are beginning to multiply…..”


This book was way too short in my opinion. 119 pages is all it is. This was writing at the same time as the script and published the same year the movie came out. So it’s basically verbatim of the movie. Nothing is different. But I still loved this book. It would have made a pretty freaky book if it was expanded into a novel. Maybe someone can take the concept from this book/movie and turn it into a bigger, more scary novel! (hint hint).

I love all the characters in this book. Specially Delbert McClintock (John Goodman’s character). His humor is hilarious. I also enjoyed Jerry Manley. He was the short-lived photographer at the beginning of the book.

It’s hard to review this book when there isn’t much to it. I just overall enjoyed reading it and reliving some childhood memories of watching the movie.

I gave it a 3/5 stars despite enjoying it. I just wish it was longer


So I rewatched the movie for like the millionth time. It will never get old! A classic in my opinion. I just love the idea of these killer spiders but they made them normal size instead of going out of this world crazy with this big ass spiders that are so unrealistic.


I was really impressed with the webbing designs too. For a movie made in 1990 they did a pretty damn good job with all this.


Let’s talk characters. John Goodman will always be my number one actor. I fell in love with him as a kid. Watching him on Rosanne. I don’t think there is a movie he has done that I hated. He is hilarious and just does an amazing job making a character come alive. He was a great extermination man in this movie.

Now if you are someone who is deathly afraid of spiders I am not sure this is the movie for you. But at the same time I say suck it up, put your big person undies on and get over your fear! It’s really not that bad!

Ahhhh this movie is a 5/5 stars for sure!!!

There really is no need to compare the book and movie because like I stated before it’s basically word for word the same.


Renegades by Marissa Meyer review

“The Renegades are a syndicate of prodigies — humans with extraordinary abilities — who emerged from the ruins of a crumbled society and established peace and order where chaos reigned. As champions of justice, they remain a symbol of hope and courage to everyone… except the villains they once overthrew.

Nova has a reason to hate the Renegades, and she is on a mission for vengeance. As she gets closer to her target, she meets Adrian, a Renegade boy who believes in justice — and in Nova. But Nova’s allegiance is to a villain who has the power to end them both.”


I absolutely love everything Marissa Meyer has written. I was so happy to get back to her books. I really had no idea what I was getting into when I started this and that is ok. I like it that way most of the time. Nothing disappointed me.


So lets start with some of the Renegades characters I like….ALL OF THEM! Well the entire Sketch team anyway! There are a few other Renegades that I won’t shed a tear when they die. But out of the team I like Oscar “Smokescreen” Silva the best! Of course Adrian “Sketch” Everhart is good too. Seems a little over-confident and maybe needs to be taken down a few notches. I didn’t get to know Danna too much cause of what happened towards the beginning of the book. So I am hoping to see more of her in the next book. And Ruby seems like a total doll and someone I’d love to hang out with.

Now we had the Renegade Council. Man oh man! I really HATE all of them at the moment in superhero mode. I do like Hugh and Simon when they are just regular husband/husband (no it’s not a spoiler) form taking care of their family. They are adorable together.

Ok now we go to the Anarchists. Nova “Nightmare” Artina. She came seem a bit annoying but she has been through hell since she was like 6 years old. So I am ignoring of some the “tough girl” attitude because I know she is going to change eventually. I am very curious about Phobia. Real name is unknown. Very mysterious guy. Honey is cute and adorable but not someone you want to piss off. Leroy seems like a pretty cool dude. Winston is creepy as hell in a could be serial killer way and Ingrid….well I can’t talk about Ingrid right now…..

And last but certainty not least is Max…not a whole is known about Max. I adore the kid and feel sorry for him. It took a while to get the back story on Max but I was totally blown away and love him.


Ok so let’s get to the actually story. Marissa had me going. It was so hard to tell who really was the superheros and who was the villains. It’s not as easy to decide as you would think. Renegades are the supposed superheroes and the anarchists are supposed to be the villians. But I don’t know. It’s tricky for sure.

I’m interested to see how to brings it all to an end in the next book. Since I heard its a duology. I have a crap ton of questions.

That ending blew me away. I had to pick my jaw up off the floor for sure. I had no idea that was coming at all and it’s going to make book 2 even more interesting!

Katherine of Aragon By Alison Weir review (Tera & Cat)

Collage 2018-01-11 13_35_26

“A princess of Spain, Catalina is only sixteen years old when she sets foot on the shores of England. The youngest daughter of the powerful monarchs Ferdinand and Isabella, Catalina is a coveted prize for a royal marriage – and Arthur, Prince of Wales, and heir to the English throne, has won her hand. But tragedy strikes and Catalina, now Princess Katherine, is betrothed to the future Henry VIII. She must wait for his coming-of-age, an ordeal that tests her resolve, casts doubt on her trusted confidantes, and turns her into a virtual prisoner.”

Collage 2018-01-11 13_34_41

Katherine’s patience is rewarded when she becomes Queen of England. The affection between Katherine and Henry is genuine, but forces beyond her control threaten to rend her marriage, and indeed the nation, apart. Henry has fallen under the spell of Katherine’s maid of honor, Anne Boleyn. Now Katherine must be prepared to fight, to the end if God wills it, for her faith, her legitimacy, and her heart.

katherine of aragon

Where do I even begin! This book was amazing. I did not know a whole lot about Katherine. Only what I knew from watching The Tudors on HBO. They did not do a very good job. I know the show centers around King Henry VIII but we were able to see and learn about his wives, minus Katherine. We come into the show late in his 24 year marriage to Katherine. They show her dark-haired, dark eyes, evil-looking women. Well she isn’t. She was red-haired, light eyes and a very loving and devout wife. I hated her from what I saw in the show. But now that I know her full story, I love her. She had every reason to be so hateful there at the end. All the hell she went through. GAH!

Alison did such an amazing job with this book. She made you feel like you were right there with Katherine, yet you could understand the story. She modernized the language so make it enjoyable.

We are able to see Katherine’s journey from the moment she steps on English land. From her first meeting with King Henry VII and Prince Arthur (Henry VIII’s older brother), to the moment she first laid eyes on Henry VIII. She was treated like royalty and then treated like a servant to becoming the true Queen of England. Not many people could have dealt with what she had to deal with. I sure would have run back home to Spain.

You can totally see the amazing love between Katherine and Henry from the beginning. I honestly think Henry VIII loved Katherine until his last breath of life. I think all that happened in this book was due to outside influences and the need for a son.

Anne! Oh little miss Anne. I actually like her, a little, in the show. I actually liked her more than Katherine. But that has now been changed. (We will be reading the Anne story for a buddy read this year also). I do feel like Anne should not had ended the way she did (won’t go into details in case you don’t know what happened to her) but she was a ruthless bitch in this book. As she was in the show. She despised Katherine and her daughter Mary. She was a HUGE influence with the actions Henry VIII took. I do think her father and brother were also a big influence not only on the King but also on Anne. I almost wonder if her brother and father were not around would she have been the way she was?

Also Wolsey and Cromwell. Oh man I can’t stand them either. Never have and never will. GAH! Such assholes! Wosley was totally doing everything just to gain for himself. Cromwell is the same.

I highly recommend this book if you love history. It is an amazing depiction. I can’t wait to read the rest of this series (there is one book for each wife) and read all of Alison Weir’s books in general.

Collage 2018-01-11 13_35_00

I am so happy I finally got to read this book. It has been sitting on my shelf for a while now, begging me to pick it up. Thank goodness, I waited so I can read it with Tera for our history blog.


Alison Weir is an amazing author, the way she captures you into the story, not being able to or wanting to leave. It’s also easy to read, but also not making you feel like you aren’t in that time period. Hopefully that all made sense, I’m unfortunately not as good as describing things as Alison Weir.

Since this is spoiler free, I’m going to try and not give too much away. If you don’t know anything about Katherine of Aragon, or Henry VIII, then I’ll give you a brief summary. Katherine is Henry’s first wife. She was first married to his brother, Arthur… That should be enough backstory I think.

I didn’t know much about Katherine’s early life, most TV shows or movies (even books), have shown the last few years of her life. It was so refreshing to read about Katherine and see her in a new light. Also, everyone has it wrong, even the cover of my edition. She has red hair!!

Since knowing the “ending”, I was shocked to find out how much at the beginning Henry VIII actually loved Katherine. Of course, there must’ve been something at the beginning, I just didn’t know how much of their marriage was from his choosing, or for political reasons.

Since arriving in England at an early age, I don’t believe she was treated kindly. There were times where she was treated with respect, as a princess then queen, but it must’ve been frustrating to be a woman in this time period and not really have a say. I’m not talking just about her marriage, it was basically everyday life. She was to produce an heir, a male heir, in a time period where medical knowledge isn’t that great (putting that mildly). The second part of the book broke my heart for her. Being a mother myself, it must’ve been so painful and hard. I’m not going to say anymore, read the book for yourself.

Saying all that, this next part is going to shock you, and I’m hoping it’s not a spoiler, even though I don’t feel it is.

I actually got really frustrated with Katherine at the end. Henry wants a divorce, maybe because he actually wants sons and Katherine can’t get pregnant anymore. Or he fell in love with someone else, whatever the reason is, does she really think by refusing a divorce from him, things are going to go back to the way it was. I think the more she refused, the more he started to hate her.

I’m sorry, if it was me and a guy didn’t love me anymore, I’ll just leave. I don’t want to stay with someone who doesn’t want me. Of course, in that time period she had the chance to graciously go into a convent, or live the high life she was still living, but no, she would not get a divorce. Maybe because she was headstrong, and good on her for that, but it did get annoying for me.

I’m also not going to call Anne names like Katherine and her ladies did, going on about a woman with a married man, yet they don’t go on about all the other affairs he had. Okay, I’m getting worked up, but I’m starting to think maybe I should’ve stopped at part two, so now I don’t find Katherine frustrating. I just don’t understand, did she really think by not getting a divorce, Henry is going to be like, “Okay, after all these years trying to get a divorce, you refusing, everything is going to go back to the way it was”. No, it isn’t!! If it’s not Anne, guess what, it would just be someone else. Anne was just smart enough not to sleep with him like other women. She didn’t want to be another of his whores.

Okay, enough of that, because it starting to sound like I don’t love the book, and I absolutely love it. So well written and told, and I am happy I finally got to read a book in Katherine’s point of view. I was just frustrated with the characters, not the book, at the end.

I cannot wait to read Anne’s book later on this year. What does Alison have to say about Anne.
