Thanksgiving Book Tag




Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and I wanted to do this tag before tomorrow because I won't have time.  Thank you to Fangirlcity for making this tag!!

1. Bread: What book is purely fluff, and has no real plot line?
This book isn't pure fluff... more like pure smut with an awful story line. Fifty Shades of Grey... Sigh

2. Turkey: What book made you want to fall asleep?

Fangirl... I don't know why but everytime I start it I get really bored and never finish it. I think I started it about 7 times.

3. Gravy: What book makes the whole series worth reading?

The Hunger Games, Throne of Glass, and The Sorcerers Stone (I know I havent finished the Series).

4. Stuffing: What book is stuffed full of action scenes?

ACOMAF for sure!!! That book is so action packed! Glass Sword was also pretty action packed.

5. Mashed Potatoes: What book looked good, and then wasn’t?

If I really dislike a book I won't finish it but I guess I'm going to have to say Glass Sword again. It wasn't as good as Red Queen.

6. Cranberries: What book has the sweetest romance?

Eleanor and Park was my everything!!! I don't read stuff like that usually so another answer is Annie and Finnick!!!! 😭😭😭😭

7. Corn: What’s the corniest book you’ve ever read?

I don't have an answer for that so...

8. Green beans: What book is too long and needs to be shortened?

A Game of Thrones. That book is huge ans scary and I don't think I'm ever going to finish it,

9. Pumpkin Pie: What book do you read to get out of a reading slump?

I don't usually re-read books so... I read small books like novellas or the Percy Jackson books.

10. Dog/Cat: What’s your favorite Thanksgiving food that you would steal from the table?

I LOOOVE  my Abuela's Arroz con Gandules!! I also really love her Pasteles!! So any chance I get to take some food, I do!

I don't know anyone to tag so if you want to do this I tag you! The struggle of not having Book Blogger friends 😂

Bye and Happy Thanksgiving!!!

The Walking Dead: Miles Behind Us Review

I know i was supposed to post this last week but lack of sleep finally caught up with my and I was too tired to do anything.


Title: Miles Behind Us
Author: Robert Kirkman
Illustrator(s): Charlie Adlard and Cliff Rathburn
Rating: 3.5/5
Quote: “But honestly... I just don't know what anyone's thinking. To me, that's scarier than any half-rotten ghoul trying to eat my flesh.”
Synopsis: An epidemic of apocalyptic proportions has swept the globe, causing the dead to rise and feed on the living. In a matter of months, society has crumbled: There is no government, no grocery stores, no mail delivery, no cable TV. In a world ruled by the dead, we are forced to finally begin living. This volume follows our band of survivors on their tragic journey in search of shelter.
My Thoughts: Honestly this one was obviously better than the first. We met new characters (The Greene's and the others that stayed with them). We met Tyreese and his family. We also got more deaths which is good because now the story is starting to pick up and the characters are realizing that they don't know who to trust because anyone can just flip a switch. With that we got new "lovers" I guess. Maggie and Glenn of course!!! 😭😭😭😭 I just like that the story is moving the way it is. Even though I kinda know what's going to happen, it doesn't happen when I expect it to so that's good. The Atlanta group just made it to the prison after Hershel lost his son and some others and completely lost his crap. When that happened I was like woah! What happened to the sweet Veterinarian we all know and love. I didn't expect there to be that much swearing in there and that's probably because they don't swear much on TV. I kinda like it but sometimes it's just too much.


Yeah that's it! I am going to take a break on this because I'm reading too many books at once and I want to finish them first. I'm reading The Diabolic, Vampire Academy, Gemina, I have to find The Star Touched Queen because I won an ARC of the second book on Goodreads and a Jon Snow fan fiction 😳😳😳😳. Too much at once

Top 5 Cars from Pop Culture that I REALLY want to drive!

So theres this website called Turo where you can basically rent almost any car you want and take off on a road trip (It's a car sharing company). I was looking through the website and they have some pretty badass cars on there like luxury cars... Porsche's, Mercedes, Lexus', I saw a Maserati cars like that and they have regular cars like a Ford Focus and Chevy Impala they also have pretty fun cars like the Ford Escape Aviato which was in HBO's Silicon Valley. It's a cool website. If only I had money... or a license... ANYWAY!!! The point of this post was to tell you guys about some cars I would love to be able to drive. If I could rent these I totally would.

 Some of these might be a little weird but thats okay because this is just a fun thing to do. Also they aren't in any order because I love all of these cars.
.
5.) So this first one might not really be a surprise but... a 1967 Chevy Impala (Supernatural)

From the moment that car showed up on my screen I was in LOVE!!  I mean that car is beautiful!!! I can't even deal! Why aren't cars today like that???




4. ) Next is a Chevy Camero (Bumblebee, Transformers)

That time when Megan Fox called Bumblebee a piece of crap and then he completely changed his appearance this happened 😻😻😻. It was just so nice and yellow (I don't like yellow but it was nice!). Look at it!



3.) Stiles' Jeep (Teen Wolf). I have always like these kinds of jeeps. My dad and my Uncle had one and I've always wanted one... I don't really know why. I really like the color of it too. 




2.) Natasha's Corvette (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) When Natasha rolled up to Steve and Sam I was dead because not only is Natasha badass... Obviously! But her car was too and I want to be in it!!!!



1.) Is another one from Captain America but its not exactly a car... It's Steve's Motorcycle! Look how beautiful he is on that beautiful bike I just 😫




***Bonus***
.
I'm going to add a bonus one just because I want to and that will technically make this top 6 but that's okay. I want to.

Honestly any Motorcycle from Sons of Anarchy... That show is the reason I love motorcycles and hope to one day own one.


Yeah! So that's it!! If you're planning a road trip and looking for a car to rent check out Turo and leave town in style!!! 😎

The Walking Dead: Days Gone Bye Review

Hi guys! After like 300 years of being inactive I'm back. Ive just been in this weird mood... Like I want to read but I don't have the motivation to do it, so I end up being watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer or The Vampire Diaries. Ugh anyway! On Sunday I went to Half Price Books because they had a little sale (literally every one was there and I got lucky!!!). I have been really wanting to read the Walking Dead Comics since I started the show 3 years ago and I finally found it for a price that wasn't 60 dollars. It was 30 dollars but the sale was 50% off the highest priced item SO I GOT IT FOR 15 DOLLARS!!!! 😩😃😎

My mom was buying me books on Sunday so like an 18 year old child I ran to her and begged her for it. Anyway back to the reason were here! For the review... I didn't finish the whole thing because there are like 48 chapters (The comic itself is a chapter). I wanted to do a review on each one I read so I don't forget about anything so here we GOOOO.... 🐦 (yes I just found out blogger now lets me use emojis).

Rating: 3.5/5
Quote: “In a world ruled by the dead, we are forced to finally start living.”
Synopsis: How many hours are in a day when you don't spend half of them watching television? When is the last time any of us REALLY worked to get something we wanted? How long has it been since any of us really NEEDED something that we WANTED? The world we knew is gone. The world of commerce and frivolous necessity has been replaced by a world of survival and responsibility. An epidemic of apocalyptic proportions has swept the globe causing the dead to rise and feed on the living. In a matter of months society has crumbled no government, no grocery stores, no mail delivery, no cable TV. In a world ruled by the dead, we are forced to finally start living.

My Thoughts: I like this. It was way different from the show which I'm grateful for but I'm a little confused with the series of events. I mean stuff was happening in a weird order (Probably because I watched the show first) and a character died early on... I though they were going to have more of a story line but it was actually really short. I still hate Lori.
This volume did remind me of the first season or the first episode ( I don't remember), it was pretty slow getting things going but it was still filled with enough action to keep it interesting. Considering this is the first comic book I've read I have to say it was pretty cool. The art in it is awesome I just wish they can release a colored version because I would really like to see that. Another thing is I have to get used to reading differently because sometimes the speech bubble is in a weird spot and I end up skipping over it and getting confused. Other than that this was cool and I already started the second volume Miles Behind Us. So yeah I'm pretty sure Ill probably finish that either tonight or sometime this week so look out for another review.

Oh also if you're looking to read these ( If you haven't already like me) you should get the Compendium its way cheaper than buying them all separately. The comics are like 10 dollars each so.... yeah. Until next time!!!!
