Dirty Little Angels by Chris Tusa

Release Date: 03/01/2009
ISBN: 1604890304
Reading time: 2 hours
Total Pages: 170

This story is set in the slums of New Orleans.  It is a story of sixteen year old Hailey Trosclair.  Facing the trials and tribulations of most teenage girls these days with a few more dramatic twists. When her family, which consists of her Father (Deadbeat but lovable father), Mother (self absorbed and overly relgious) and Brother Cyrus (rebellious and overly protective),  suffers a string of financial hardships and a miscarriage. Hailey and Cyrus befriend Moses Watkins, a failed preacher and ex-con. They get tangled up in his views on religion and begin spending more time with Moses. Gradually, though, Moses becomes increasingly more violent, and Hailey and Cyrus soon find themselves trapped in a world of danger and fear from which there may be no escape.
At 170 pages this book is a comfortable read in less then 2 hours uninterrupted. I would have defiantly bought it had it not been graciously given to me to review by the Author. The story line was great and if elaborated could have been easily another 200 pages. But over all a great book.

Tell Me Honey...2000 questions for couples by Vikram Chadiramani

Release Date: 04/01/2010
ISBN#:  1451501897
Reading time: 30 mins
Pages: 217

This book is exactly as the title says. This author goes through a list of 2018 questions to be exact.
I truly believe I found my next new quiz sheet for any new relationship. Be it romantic or not.

Where was this book when I spent endless hours in the chat rooms with people who had nothing to say?  Heck I might even share these on facebook as wall posts to get my friends and family to post something on my comments from time to time.

Some of the questions I would NEVER ask at the beginning of ANY relationship, however, some would be saved as an arsenal and base for a great argument.

Overall it is an alright book. For what it is that is. Would I buy it? Probably not, but only because I have a creative mind and am not afraid to ask questions.  There are many out there who are not.

If I asked my boyfriend or some of my friends these questions and got to question 1941, you bet your sweet bippy they would say YES and you SOOOOOO fit this category. Want to know what that question is... go to your local Barnes and Noble and pick up a copy and either open it and find out or buy it if it does interest you and gets your mind thinking. Heck pick up a copy and answer the questions yourself.


This blog is to give my opinions on some of the books I have read. I read. A LOT.
I figured this would give everyone an opinion on where my brain is and will give you a view point as to how I think.
I encourage anyone to buy some of these books. If you were really looking forward to reading something I have reviewed and didn't like...well HEY! Go right ahead! By all means!  If you read it and you like it?! Even better! Topic for a little friendly debate! It also means you have a mind of your own. Which I encourage. Trust me I have none to spare. I misplace mine all the time.
I am a member of a wonderful site called Librarything.com. On this site I am also a part of the Early Reviewers. This means when an author comes out with a book and wants opinions from a variety of people they will either mail or email it to you for your opinion.
So take a look at the list. See if something sparks your interest and get to reading!
