222 Thoughts While Watching: Bird Box

Happy first Friday of 2019 Storytellers! Today is a super exciting day because not only is it Friday (hallelujah) but it also just so happens to be Fictionally Sam‘s 1 Year Blogoversary! I honestly am shocked that Its been an entire year since this whole oasis has begun. I have made so many amazing friends through this in the book community and have found so many equally amazing blogs along the way.

No, today I am disregarding my rule for a moment and am reading a book I DNF’ed back in 2016. If you haven’t noticed from the Title yet, that book is To All The Boys I Loved Before by Jenny Han. I tried this book before, and got maybe 40 pages in and just couldn’t do it. My best friends swore up and down that this book was great and begged me for months to read it–I tried. Honestly, I gave it my all. But I couldn’t get passed the beginning and thus gave it a one star in my DNF notebook. However, the year has come when this book is being turned into a movie–and like the person I am, I want to watch it. But I have another rule (yeah, I know I’m weird), Continue reading “194 Thoughts While Reading: To All The Boys I Loved Before by Jenny Han”
