books are breath


A life without books is a very hollow existence indeed. Nothing else has the power to make me laugh out loud, cry like a baby, or scream in rage like reading a book can. I am open to all genres and am willing to give almost anything a try, even if it's outside my normal scope. My faves are thrillers/suspense but I am also into paranormal, drama, chick lit and YA. This is my first blog, so forgive my ignorance and if you see something I can improve, do tell. :) 

Review: Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh

Hyperbole and a Half: Unfortunate Situations, Flawed Coping Mechanisms, Mayhem, and Other Things That Happened - Allie Brosh

I know, I know. I left out part of the title but you get the gist. The book is incredibly funny and has just enough self-deprecating humor that women can relate to. This is not a book you want to read in a waiting room or restaurant. Actually you don't want to read it anywhere in public unless you want people to stare at you while you laugh uncontrollably and a real life spit take. I had never seen her blog but I will for sure visit it regularly now.
