Big Brother

The 21st season of Big Brother started this week. I missed the first day, though. I couldn’t be bothered to look it up on demand. I am sure I can catch up quickly.

I don’t really watch reality shows, but I’ve watched this one since my oldest child was only a few months old.

There are already different games this season. I haven’t heard any new rules, but I’m sure there will be some. I’m sure there will be several twists and surprises this season. I look forward to them.

I am excited for a new season, even though it takes up several hours a week. I can read during commercials.

Reading an Author All the Way Through

There are various authors whose work I have loved!  I am trying to read my way through each of the authors’ bodies of work.  I am excited when I see a book that the author has written that I haven’t read yet.

I was very excited to see that Meg Cabot has new books published, and books that will be published soon. I love that she has various series, and they are mostly different genres. I’ve finished the Princess Diaries series, other than three of the mini stories

Shanna Swendson has a lot of series, also. I have finished the Enchanted, Inc series, and I LOVED them. I am about to start the Fairy Tales series and the Rebel Mechanics series. I hope they are as good.  I am currently reading Twice Upon a Christmas, even though it’s June.

I so far have loved each of Jodi Taylor’s books.  I bought them all at once for my Kindle.  I am working on them slowly, since other books need attention, too.

I am sure I will add other authors to this list, but these are three of my favorites, so far.  Working my way through books I am just loving is a decadent way to pass time.

Princess on the Brink, by Meg Cabot

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I have loved the Princess Diaries series. This one, though, was more of a bridge to the next book than a story on its own. Mia was whiny and needy in this book, more than usual. If I had not been reading the series out of order, I probably would have given up on it when I got to this one. The book after this one went back to being a good one, though.

Princess Mia, by Meg Cabot

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I picked this up to continue reading the series. I didn’t realize that I hadn’t read the book before it, though. I was still able to follow along because I had read so many in the series, and the spin off series that picks up after this original one. I enjoyed the book and the characters stayed true to their personalities. I have truly enjoyed this series, and hope to finish it up soon.

Where do you get your books?

I get my books from a variety of sources.  Because the majority of my books are on Kindle, and from bookbub or fussy librarian (freebies and cheap), the majority of my books come from Amazon.  When a book comes up for bookclub, I look at the library first.  If it’s going to be a long wait, I will look on Amazon next.   Usually, I can wait for the library hold, though.

I look at the library book sales for series pieces that I need to finish.  I have several series where I have books 1 & 3, and I keep looking for 2.  I am patient, unless I am mid series.  Most of these books are $1 each, so it’s worth the effort.

I can’t wander past a bookstore without going in.  I tend to purchase at least one book whenever I go in, and it’s usually something I’ve been contemplating for a while.

Finally, I have a book of the month subscription, where I get the new releases.

I use a variety of sources to fulfill my need for books.  My book addiction.

Favorite movie based on a book

I loved the whole Harry Potter series.  A lot of the books were left out of the movies, though, but the books were sooooo long, this is understandable.

I also loved the Hunger Games series.  Again, a lot of the background stuff was missed in the movies, because a lot was in Katniss’s head.  And, the movies would have been way too long.
