So, here’s the scoop: There are a lot of series I have not and do not plan on finishing. I thought long and hard about this after my last post, the part where I promised to give the Matched Series another chance. I looked through my bookshelves and then scrolled through my amazon book shelf and found a lot more series I haven’t even attempted to finish. The first emotion I felt? Absolute shame.

FRIDAY FINDS showcases the books you ‘found’ and added to your To Be Read (TBR) list… whether you found them online, or in a bookstore, or in the library — wherever! (they aren’t necessarily books you purchased). Sponsored by MIZB at Should Be Reading.

I love thrift stores. I’m one of those girls who makes a bee-line straight passed all of the major clothing stores and ducks into a consignment shop. There is just absolutely nothing wrong with thrift stores. I remember when I was a kid, even when I was a teenager, I was so embarrassed to be buying my jeans at a local Goodwill. My family didn’t have a lot of money and this was just the way things were. All of my stuff was hand-me-downs from relatives or off of the rack from Goodwill. I had few brand new things, but as a child I was naive. Now I see the potential in things. Now I can see how some clothing from ten years ago, is in style now.

Welcome to the center of (hopefully) educational ramblings!

Being a consumer myself, I like to research the products I intend to buy. You always want to make sure that the product will live up to your standards, tickle your fancy, and be physically appealing to the eye.

With books it’s more complicated. The cover can be an absolute Mona Lisa of covers, so devastatingly handsome it literally rocks your socks off and you must have it at any and all costs. The only catch? The cover was amazing and it looks fantastic on your shelf but the story… Gosh! The story is lacking. It took you months to read, pushing yourself to finish all those pages, only to leave you feeling empty and resentful of all the time you put in.

Well that’s the purpose of this blog. I won’t hold anything back. I won’t be sweet or nice if it isn’t warranted. I’ll tell you the nitty gritty details as to whether I thought it was an absolute win or an absolute fail.

Happy book hunting!
