Dreamcast: Graceling

Each Dreamcast features a selection of actors who I imagine look like the characters from a particular book. This dreamcast is for Graceling.

Review: Since You've Been Gone

Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson
◆ Read April 2015
◆ English Edition
◆ Purchase: The Book Depository
❝ The Pre-Sloane Emily didn't go to parties, she barely talked to guys, she didn't do anything crazy. Enter Sloane, social tornado and the best kind of best friend—the one who yanks you out of your shell. 

But right before what should have been an epic summer, Sloane just… disappears. No note. No calls. No texts. No Sloane. There’s just a random to-do list. On it, thirteen Sloane-selected-definitely-bizarre-tasks that Emily would never try… unless they could lead back to her best friend.

Apple Picking at Night? Okay, easy enough.

Dance until Dawn? Sure. Why not?

Kiss a Stranger? Um... 

Getting through Sloane’s list would mean a lot of firsts. But Emily has this whole unexpected summer ahead of her, and the help of Frank Porter (totally unexpected) to check things off. Who knows what she’ll find?

Go Skinny Dipping? Wait ... what?
I got to enjoy this contemporary while I was in sunny Valencia. I wanted to bring a book with me that had a summery-vibe to it and Since You've Been Gone did not disappoint. In fact, it was far better than I expected, I practically finished it in one sitting!

The Doom of Bloggers Block

Up until two months ago, my main problem with blogging was that I could not find enough time to read books and write posts about them. I was blissfully ignorant, unaware that there was even such a thing as a writers block concerning blogging. But there is such a thing, which the internet has 'lovingly' dubbed the bloggers block. And guess what? I've caught the virus and have no idea how to get rid of the sodding thing!
