Death By Boredom

I am aware that this play and screen play is a classic.. I realize it has won many awards... but frankly I just couldn't get into it.. maybe it's because the book was TOO dated for me.. or maybe it was just the fact that it was a book that I had to read for school. I tend loose interest in books, if I have a set date I have to read them by.. i guess it cause it takes the fun out of it for me. Overall, I quit reading the book half way through and really have nothing nice to say about the book and do not recommend it. I am sure some people will disagree with me and that is fine, but I found no reason to want to finish reading this book.

Currently Reading: How To Be Single By Liz Tuccillo

Let's Just Not... and Say We Did

The Title of this Blog describes exactly how I feel about this book. Although, I finished reading this book about two weeks ago I felt Zero urge to blog about it and also, I have been busy. With that said... my OCD kicked in and I HAD to blog about it or I would be out of order. I'm weird like that.

I think the problem began with the authors themselves.. being that both woman are in the Hollywood business and are well Screen writers (I think) I feel no need to clarify this since I really could care less. They are in the industry what they do, really doesn't matter. Had this book been written into a TV Show or even a movie.. possibly it could have been better. The Idea for the book, was good.. the lay out for the book was good.. but, after that it just lacked everything. The plot jumped around the book and then on the last 5 pages all comes together, but still leaves you unsatisfied. Mainly cause there was zero substance to each of the plot lines.. they were all haphazardly thrown around. Minus the clever and constant name dropping this book just didn't hit the mark. I wasted too much of my life reading this book, and would never think of recommending this book to anyone. THANK GOD I bought it had the dollar store, cause it would not have been worth anymore than that. 

In Other News...

I am suppose to be reading "Death of A Salesman" for my class.. which annoys me since it interrupted my flow of books I have ready to be read next. I have been told that "Death of a Salesman" is a classic however, once a book is assigned to me for school, I lose any interest I had in reading the book... I think it's the deadline..deadlines, make it hard for me to enjoy a book. Which speaking of deadline I have 2 days to finish reading this book before I have to write a book report on it.. and I am only on page 14. I should correct myself when I say book, cause it's actually a screenplay and  written in that format it is also, only 150 pages long. SO it really isn't a difficult read. I just don't want to read it, but I will (i hope) and I will report back to my "readers" aka my mom and that will be that. I am also excited because I bought Myself a new book today By Bill and Giuliana Rancic called "I Do, Now What?" If you don't know who they are Bill won the Apprentice and Giuliana is an E! News Host with Ryan Seacrest and Together they have their own reality show on E! and Style called Giuliana and Bill.  They are a hilarious couple and live an exceedingly stressful life, but also have an unusual marriage. OK. I need to stop this is what I say in my What's Next Part of my blog. So I will stop, I was just excited to buy this book and read it.. but not until I read the 3 maybe 4 books ahead of it ...
