My Thoughts On...

Goodreads' summary:  "James Patterson's ZOO was just the beginning. The planet is still under violent siege by ferocious animals. Humans are their desperate prey. Except some humans are evolving, mutating into a savage species that could save civilization-or end it."

  My summary:  "what, the animals are still going crazy & attacking people?!"

I loved the first Zoo book.  I thought it was amazing & whipped through it SO fast.  I actually consider it one of my favorite James Patterson books & I've read a lot of his books.  This one was good but not as good as the first & it leaves it open for another one.  So, I am anxious to see if JP plans to make a series out of this   

It was another quick, easy read & it being a Bookshot, it was even quicker & easier.  So, right up my alley.  :)

My Thoughts On...

Goodreads summary:  "Sixteen-year-old Aza never intended to pursue the mystery of fugitive billionaire Russell Pickett, but there’s a hundred-thousand-dollar reward at stake and her Best and Most Fearless Friend, Daisy, is eager to investigate. So together, they navigate the short distance and broad divides that separate them from Russell Pickett’s son, Davis."

  My summary:  "an already traumatized teenage girl tries to solve the mystery of a friend's weird father who leaves all his money to a lizard."

First, let me say that I love John Green & I have enjoyed all of his books especially Looking for Alaska, that was my favorite.  You probably thought I would say The Fault in Our Stars, didn't you?  Ha!  

While I enjoyed this book, I feel that his others were better.  His other books seemed to have flowed better than this one.

Have you read this book?  Have you read his others?  How did you like it?  Let me know.



My rating for Turtles All the Way Down:

It's Wednesday So That Means...

So, back in the day, there was a linkup about weekly lessons.  I really liked it but since it has crumbled & the linkup is no more.  :(  I really liked doing it so I'm going to continue doing it, join me!
I've learned...that Bearpaw boots are the best things ever!  I got them about a month ago because it was just easier after my surgery to put boots like this on than other shoes.  They were a lil more than what I like to spend on shoes but totally worth it, I wear them all the time.  :)

I've learned...that even though I have good intentions of posting "My Thoughts" posts on movies & books I watch/read, I still don't always do them.  I really need to though.

I've learned...that when things are slow at work, it really makes the days drag & that really, really sucks.  I mean, I've always known that but forgot was it was like to not have much to do.  However, it does give me time to blog & read blogs, so that's good.  :)

I've learned..…

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over toApril to do so.  :)

My five this week are just some random thoughts.

  1.  My stepdaughters.  Trouble (the one on the right) who is now nineteen has asked me to adopt her.  While it's been mentioned before in the past, I thought it would be passing thing especially with her but she continues to talk about it with me, her dad & she even told her mom that she's doing it & that it will be done soon.  I told her that I would do it, I even spoke to Paul about it the other night & he doesn't care either way, if that's what will make her feel good & I want to do it, he's supports us.  As for Sunshine, Trouble says that she wants the same thing as well but Sunshine has not talked about it Paul or I, I've seen texts between the girls about it but that's it.  Also, Sunshine is still a minor & the ad…

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...for having my final post-op yesterday.

I am thankful...that the hubby & I are most likely going back to Vegas in April.

I am thankful...that Trouble is seriously thinking about having me adopt her.

I am thankful...that today is Thursday, I thought yesterday was Thursday.  :\



What are some things that YOU are thankful for?

My five this week are my top five songs from 2017 according to Spotify:

  5.  Do Something Crazy by Outasight.  I don't know how I found this song but such a fun, fun song.  I actually suggested it to my friend who's a cheer & stunt coach.

  4.  I'm Better by Missy Elliott.  Ah, Missy, when will you be releasing your next album.  I need more of you in my life, girl!

  3.  Come Down by Anderson.Paak.  One of the best things about the Marvel shows on Netflix - Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Ironfist, The Defenders & The Punisher - the music!  Like, seriously, they have awesome soundtracks & I heard this one on Ironfist & fell in love instantly.

  2.  Hang N' Bang by Vince Staples.  This was another song found on Ironfist.  There were a couple of "workout" montages with good …

My Thoughts On...

IMDB's summary:  fueled by his restored faith in humanity & inspired by Superman's selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy."

My summary:  freaks of nature & one rich guy decide to save the world by joining forces...I think that's pretty spot-on, right?  Ha!


If you've been around these parts, you know that I'm a Marvel girl.  However, I always liked Batman until it was announced that Ben Affleck would be playing him.  Now, I don't have anything against Ben, I like him as much as the next person but going from Christian Bale to Ben Affleck didn't seem right.  That being said, I didn't watch Superman or Batman vs. Superman until after I saw Wonder Woman.


I still don't like Ben as Batman & I hear that they are in talks with Jeffrey Dean Morgan to take over that role & I would be alright with that.

Anywho, on to what I thought about the movie.  It was entertaining …
