A Drink With

If you could have a drink with anyone, who would it be? That’s one of the questions that the site, A Drink With, asks the various celebrities, artists, and influencers that are interviewed. I’ve always liked learning about other people’s lives and getting a peek behind the curtain. I first discovered the site earlier this week when Hallie tweeted a link and I’ve been poring over it ever since. The photographs that accompany each article are also great and I like the way the subjects are captured in a more relaxed setting. I recognize some of the names that they’ve featured, but others I hadn’t heard of before. Regardless, I’ve enjoyed all of the interviews that I’ve read so far and I think this would make some great weekend reading.

What I Read: February 2014

february reads, what i read in february, february books, goodreads challenge


About- The final installment in the Divergent series; Tris and Four finally learn the truth behind the factions.

Why I picked it– Even though I didn’t love Insurgent as much as Divergent, I wasn’t going to leave the series unfinished.

Grade B In the end, I was kind of disappointed in this series. I really enjoyed the first book, but for me it all went downhill from there. I was less enthused by the second book and by the end of the third book I was over it. There’s a lot of information dumping in this novel, which just gets tedious. Also, I wasn’t a fan of the ending at all. It’s a bit of a twist and I won’t give it away, but to me it didn’t make that much sense in the context of the rest of the novel. Who else has read this series? Did you like it more or less than I did?


About- Essays on various “White Girls” (hint: the author’s definition of ‘white girls’ is different from the obvious interpretation).

Why I picked it– This was a book club pick, so I didn’t choose this one.

Grade D Eeek, this one was a real struggle for me. Remember, last time I was having trouble finishing it? Well, we set a date for a book club meeting this month, so I knew I had to pick it up again and power through. Sadly, this was my least favorite book in recent memory. I didn’t enjoy the writing style or the subject material. My impression of this book is that the only people who would enjoy it are some of the people mentioned in the book or the author himself. Yikes, that was harsh, no? But really, I didn’t like this book and if it weren’t for book club I wouldn’t have finished it.

All in all, it was not the best month in terms of reading for me! One very good note though- I started The Goldfinch a few weeks ago and I’m loving it. I’ve sort of been reading it slowly on purpose, so that I can savor it. Granted, I was watching the Olympics a lot and it’s a huge book (nearly 800 pages), so it’s been pretty easy to space it out. I’m about 2/3rds of the way through right now, so look for it to pop up in next month’s post.

I’d love for you to tell me what you’re currently reading in the comments below!
