Book Outlet Haul!

Book Outlet Haul!

Book Haul 2

Hello everyone! A small while back, I discovered bookoutlet.com, and it wasn’t until about a week ago when I actually placed an order, because obviously I have no self control when it comes to books… or pizza. But you know what I’m sayin’. Book Outlet is an online book store that sells bargain books at greatly discounted prices. Their selection isn’t the most varietal, but they have lots of sales and new books coming in all the time! So what are… Read more »

Dirty Dancing: Nobody Puts Baby in a Corner!

Dirty Dancing: Nobody Puts Baby in a Corner!

Theatre 0

Nobody puts Baby in a corner. If you’ve read my about page, you probably know that I absolutely adore Dirty Dancing! It’s one of my favorite movies and has been since I was a little girl. I grew up watching it with my Grandma and my Mom, and it has so much mostly nostalgic meaning for me. When I was younger, I just loved the music and the dancing and the energy of all of it, and I still do. But now that I’m… Read more »

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

Life 2

So I have a funny or really sad story to tell you all. The other day I was watching The Walking Dead on AMC, and of course the channel was advertising their Fear Feast movie event. In the advertisement, they showed a few flashes from the movie Halloween (1978).  At that point I had already been wanting to watch this movie because it’s one of my favorite movies to watch this season, and I managed to impulse-buy three movies from this… Read more »

Review: Let’s Get Lost by Adi Alsaid

5 Stars, Reviews 6

I don’t know if any of you guys know this, but I have a very big dream to one day go on a road trip. And I don’t mean the kind with your parents and your annoying siblings where the entire trip is family orientated and planned down to the very last detail. Don’t get me wrong, I love those kind too, but I want to go on a road trip alone or with friends where it’s spontaneous and adventurous and just… focused on… Read more »

Buuut… we’ll see how that turns out. But to the point… I’d like to introduce the newest blogger here at Strung out on Books, Caylin! Caylin is my roommate in college. She is a book nerd… Read more »

Review: That Was Then, This is Now by S.E. Hinton

Review: That Was Then, This is Now by S.E. Hinton

4 Stars, Reviews 4

**There maybe might be spoilers… it’s kind of hard to discuss this book without spoilers, so… you’ve been warned.** I was expecting this book to be emotional, but mostly I was expecting it to make me sad like The Outsiders did. I guess in a way it did make me sad, but it made me more angry than anything, and incredibly annoyed. “If you have two friends in your lifetime, you’re lucky. If you have one good friend, you’re more than lucky.” Bryon… Read more »

Review: Ask the Passengers by A.S. King

Review: Ask the Passengers by A.S. King

5 Stars, Reviews 2

Ask the Passengers is funny and honest, and an experience I will never forget. While it doesn’t exactly tackle anything new, the style and voice of A.S. King is unique and perfect. Add that to her ability to weave in a bit of magic, and it’s hard to doubt that Ask the Passengers is anything but original. Astrid Jones is struggling. Her family… well, it’s safe to say it sucks, her friends are pushy, and her town is small. Small-minded, mostly,… Read more »
