Musing Monday #8

This is a weekly meme hosted by shouldbereading, which is where you can post your musings of the week. This can be describing a reading habit, what books you've bought, what books you want, what you're reading or any rant you can think of book related.

This week I wanted to share this genius book I found while shelf tidying when I was on relief at a different library branch. I saw the title and it made me laugh so much that I pulled it off the shelf and took a picture and sent it to everyone at my branch. I just love the tagline - "Forget the cud, they want blood...". Pure genius and definitely had me giggling!





I reached 100 followers on both GFC and Bloglovin, I can't quite believe it to be honest! I am really happy with how the blog is going and truly amazed at how it's going. I've hosted my first giveaway and it's really great so far. I'm sad I only did 1 prize now though, I'm hoping to host another around Christmas time but have three winners then. 


Dare You To (Pushing the Limits, #2)

I'm currently reading Dare You To by Katie McGarry. I received Crash Into You, by the same author, as an eARC and as it's a companion novel I wanted to read the other books first. I had mixed feelings about Pushing the Limits, but so far this one is going well. I have a problem with how overly packed on the authors religious views are; she has made every character, and I mean every character religious; which is just unrealistic and makes me feel like I am kind of being preached at. Hopefully this book will go better than Pushing the Limits, I like Beth a lot more as a lead character. And at least she has a normal name!

  4. I love Katie McGarry's books! I just finished Crash Into You yesterday, I liked it as much as the other companion novels. I don't remember a really big religious component in Pushing the Limits--at least, not one that annoyed me a lot.

    1. I'm enjoying Dare You To a lot more than the first. It's not a really big component, it just grated on me that everyone is religious.
