Gone Girl by Gillain Flynn- Review

Tuesday, July 22, 2014 Tuesday, July 22, 2014
Title: Gone Girl
Author: Gillian Flynn
Pages: 422
Publication date: May 24th, 2012 by Broadway Books

Link: Gone Girl-Goodreads

On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn’t doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife’s head, but passages from Amy's diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media—as well as Amy’s fiercely doting parents—the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he’s definitely bitter—but is he really a killer?

With the movie coming out shortly I knew I had to get my hands on this book and read it.  Thanks to my sister-in-law who started asking me if I had read it I pushed it up my TBR pile.  I am still thinking about this book days later.

Wolfenstein New World Order- Video Game Review

Monday, July 21, 2014 Monday, July 21, 2014
 




Wolfenstein is a really really great game.  I hadn't actually planned on playing it but started to hear so much about it that I went ahead and went over to Redbox and rented it. It was so worth it.

Sunday Post

Saturday, July 19, 2014 Saturday, July 19, 2014

Let's chat about what's going on this week... on my blog.. on other blogs... on the internet... and just everywhere!    I link up my post to Sunday Post hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Reader and Stacking the Shelves.


This week I am a little behind on visiting blogs because I have actually been reading.  Yes that's true.. reading. My garden got pummeled by hail this week.   Hopefully it bounces back.  Not that a lot has been growing, but my pumpkins were doing really well.

Comic Adventures Issue #15

Thursday, July 17, 2014

I read a lot of comics and rarely review them here on the blog. That's because I really don't have a lot to say for an entire post.  So I thought I would review several comics on one post.  I will still review graphic novels on their own now and then, but this is where I will talk about super-hero type comics (DC/Marvel) or sequels to some that I have already reviewed.

This week I talk about Fables Vol. 15 Rose Red by Bill Willingham, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Volume 2 by Alan Moore, Nightwing Volume 4 Second City, and He-Man and the Masters of the Universe Vol. 2 Origins of Eternia DC.

Mini Summer Bloggiesta

Wednesday, July 16, 2014 Wednesday, July 16, 2014
 


The idea behind Bloggiesta is to spend these next two days working on perfecting your blog and connecting with other bloggers who are doing the same thing. Spread the word and get all your friends to come and fiesta with us!  If you haven’t heard about Bloggiesta before, it’s a weekend (July 19-20) where we all sit down to work on our blogs, do those things we keep putting off, as well as network and meet new bloggers and participate in challenges and giveaways. Definitely check it out, it’s a lot of fun!  

I will update just this one post here so people don't keep seeing the same post over and over again.  So head here if you want to see my updates!  Here are my goals: 

1. I do this every time.  I moderate two book clubs on goodreads (Stephen King Fans and the Young Adult Book Club) and I need to moderate all the posts that happen on there.  I need to read through each and every thread/topic and use this weekend to do it since it takes so long and I have to stay caught up on it. Done! It does take a while and this is a big chore. But it's done. Plus I got the polls ready for the next book club pick in each group.
2. Fix sidebar.  I have a new blog look and haven't really taken the time to fix up the sidebar yet. 
3. Comment on blogs participating in Bloggiesta.  
4. Participate in Challenges  - I have looked at all of them. I loved the social media etiquette.
5. Go through blogs I follow and stop following the ones that no longer blog, or that I don't stop by and visit. I really need to match up the blogs I follow on Bloglovin and GFC.  I kind of mixed them up and I want them to match.
6. Back up Blog
7. Get my interviews ready for Utah Book Blogger month.

This list always grows as I see other blogger's goals.  They usually give good ideas of what to do.
