OCD Love Story, by Corey Ann Haydu

OCD Love Story by Corey Ann HayduI love titles that tell you what the story is going to be about. I think there is probably no better example of this than OCD Love Story, by Corey Ann Haydu. It’s a book about characters with OCD and it’s a love story. I don’t think either element would be as successful without the other to counter balance it.

To give you a little context here is the summary from goodreads: When Bea meets Beck, she knows instantly that he’s her kind of crazy. Sweet, strong, kinda-messed-up Beck understands her like no one else can. He makes her feel almost normal. He makes her feel like she could fall in love again. Continue reading

Top Ten New Series I Want to Start

toptentuesday

Happy Tuesday! Starting a new series can be daunting. I started the Game of Thrones books over a year ago and am still working my way (slowly) through book 5. It has taken up more than 100 (a lot more than 100 actually) hours of my life so far. Still, there is almost nothing better than getting into a new series. When I love a book, I am hugely excited to be able to keep engaging with the story in future books. Here are the top ten newish (I think they are all 2012 or later) series that have been catching my eye lately. Let me know yours in the comments!

Thank you to The Broke and the Bookish for hosting this weekly book meme.

I’ve also planned a few trips based on books, which have been really fun. Here are a few of the top places books have made me want to visit (even though some of them are fantasy places, so I probably won’t make it there). Let me know yours in the comments!

I’ve been picking YA characters for the last few weeks, so I thought today I’d up the age factor and give you three literary father figures to choose from. Your choices are between Atticus Finch from To Kill a Mocking Bird, Pa Ingalls from the Little House series, and Mr. Bennet from Pride and Prejudice.  Let me know in the comments who you would marry, who you would date, and who you would dump.
